Change.

Every year and every season we come to expect change. We know the leaves will fall, they’ll change from green to beautiful autumn tones.  Depending on where we are in the world, the ground will freeze, the snow will fall and the trees will expose their bare branches. If Science class taught us anything about…

Boy Bye.

This one’s for all my single ladies praying for a man of God to walk into their life. Will you give me a few moments to share a bit of my heartfelt concern and plight of the dating scene among Jesus-loving women? I’ve been told I’m “old school”, “traditional” or that I’m not “putting myself…

NEW.

Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved (Rom.10:13), and anyone who is saved is a new creation. The past is gone! We can thank and praise Him for the awesome reminder that He does not see or define us by our past, our failures, our setbacks or sin. We are…

To you…

Here’s to all the women who have gone through hardship and heartache and still kept the faith. To all the women who ignored the haters, the gossip and the whispers and kept their eyes on Jesus. Here’s to the women who get their joy from the Lord and strength from His Word and who remember…

Faith > Belief

I’ve been “labeled” a Christian for as long I can remember.  My parents raised me in a home where God was a part of our daily discussions and church was a regular part of our week. I remember my parents sharing Bible stories with me, praying and quite literally “training up a child in the way…

Mean Girls

Mean girls,  I’m sure there was one in every school. These were the girls who paraded themselves around the hallways, criticizing, minimizing and intimidating anyone in their path.  The manipulation and control they had was almost mob-like; they seemed to have so much power. And oh the jealousy and comparison that ruled in the hearts…

Truth 

I used to think the Bible was boring, it sat on my nightstand collecting dust. I’d memorize scripture and knew the Bible stories without even understanding how or if they applied to me. Even after accepting Jesus into my heart over 20 years ago, the Bible wasn’t an important part of my life until my…

Unfinished…

… What do these three little dots represent? Although small in size compared to this paragraph, they symbolize more to come,  more thinking, more questions and more to the story. These three little dots represent so much more! The seasons in our lives are much like these little dots, we can expect much more from…

HIStory

Is it possible to identify as Christian and not actually live in the fullness of a relationship with Jesus? Yes. I was there. For years I fought with my identity. I struggled with finding my place and finding out who I was. I didn’t realize at the time, but my mistaken identity wasn’t by accident,…

Dream On.

Have you ever woke up from dream and tried to describe it to someone? When you hear yourself speak you realize how absurd some of it sounds.  The locations, the people and even the situations don’t always line up or make sense. I remember a friend joking around and telling me that I was a…
