Watch the Tide Charts
by Kristi Lemley on October 7th, 2021
from the heart of Kristi:Anytime before I visit Shell Island, I always check the tide charts. Wading through the strong current to arrive at the island is difficult enough, but to do it when the tide is up almost makes it impossible. The flow of water around my waist or chest can pull me off my feet so quickly. Whereas the strength at my knees weakens the waters ability to cause me to lose my foo...

An excerpt from Dr. Kristi's new book TRANSFORMED:Do You Need Transformation?Difficult situations we endure trigger questions which are a part of life. Why did God allow that to happen?

Expect God without Expectations
by Kristi Lemley on August 26th, 2021
From the Heart of Dr. Kristi-One of the reasons I love to go to Shell Island is to look for sand dollars. They are my favorite shell. I am always amazed when I find one that is complete because they can be so brittle when they dry up. I feel like a kid at Christmas waiting to see what presents are under the tree. One trip to Shell Island was a great disappointment. There were no sand dollars. Not ...
