Thanks for stopping by, Dear Reader!
I’m Alice, also known as Allie, and I love to write, from letters to blog posts to books.
I’m a transplanted Southern gal, who’s blessed to have recently retired from a rewarding career in education and downsized from a home I loved.
Life was pretty good before, but now, it’s great, and more God-filled than ever before! My joy is found in Jesus and finding ways to encourage His kids.
My prayer is that if you need a faith booster, a chuckle, or a dose of hope you’ll be able to find it here at Allie’s Praise!
I’ll never forget the summer after I turned fourteen. It was memorable, but not in a good way. While my brother was out learning how to water ski, I was home being caregiver to our mom who was recovering from surgery. Not great, right? But that wasn’t the half of it.
Okay, Dear Reader, I’m going to show my age a bit here: does anyone else remember the peace protests in the 60s and 70s? Please tell me I’m not the only one. It was a time of stretching our wings, finding our voices. If you remember those years, you’ll probably remember it was a time …
O, Most High God, we have waited ages for this night! How blessed we are to be part of the blessing. I can’t wait to see the shepherds’ faces! Dear Father, we’re spruced up and tuned up to do our best for you. We’ve chosen only the best songs of praise to announce the arrival …

What faithful readers think about Allie's Praise...
Alice, I love the picture you portray of God. I imagine He does have a big smile as we come upon that revelation, that revealing of His truth that we need right at that moment.
I’m sorry you lost a child. I know it was years ago, but we never forget, do we? I love that you got to see your baby girl in the sonogram. I can understand your wonder.
Grateful for a very present God in the midst of trouble. Love this beautiful reminder.
You so well explained how Jesus lived in a chaotic world, but didn’t live a chaotic life. He was not surrounded by peace but lived in peace. He is peace. He is what we need. May we tell others of his peace.
Thank you, Alice, for calling us to step out in obedience, even when the challenge seems to be beyond us. It probably is but if God calls us, He will surely equip us with all that is needed. Thank you & blessings!
