I apologize this didn't get out on Saturday as planned. I was blessed to be present with family and friends. To encourage others in need and to be blessed in return. And now back to regular programming 🙂 Have you heard of the Japanese art, Kintsukuroi? This ancient art developed because a beloved piece of… Continue reading Ephesians 3:20–Scars That Shine
Hello dear friend, This post was one of the most difficult to write. Rewrite. And write again. I wrestled with it for weeks! Maybe you can tell me why. Blessings. “Excuse me; Ma’am, is this yours?” I ignored the voice behind me and started walking. There’s NO WAY she could be talking to me. Ma’am?!?… Continue reading But I Don’t Feel Forgiven…Part 4: Forgiving, Forgetting, and Doubt
Struggling with the Christmas Spirit this year? Feeling like Scrooge, The Grinch, or Cindy Lou Who? I get it. Join me as we remember what we're celebrating...The Story, from Bethlehem to Calvary.
Being sick sucks! Wouldn’t you agree? It takes more than it gives and when it’s over, you have to play catch-up. For two weeks now a virus has had its way with my family. We’ve dropped one-by-one, like dominos falling in slow motion. And when a few of us start to get back up, BAM… Continue reading Our Best For Him–Even when You Don’t Feel Your Best
Ever have days when things don't go as planned. When life happens? Me too. That's usually when Jesus get my attention and teaches me something new.
I don’t know about you, but after worshiping with other Believers, I feel encouraged! No matter what season I’m in, what challenges I’m facing, what I’m wrestling with, or how broken I am—I always feel refreshed, refocused, and more hopeful. Come. 'Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!' Psalms 34:8
What if I told you serving others in the name of Jesus Christ is a form of worship AND can be instrumental in your healing? Would you believe me?
Too much to do and not enough time to do it in this Christmas season? Afraid if you pull anything out it will crash like Jenga blocks? It doesn't have to be this way. Discover perspective, hope...and Joy.
Finding joy in the holiday season can be tough. Sometimes, the joy isn't found as much as it's chosen. For some, holidays are a struggle because unforgiveness in the family still resides or the personality conflicts haven't been resolved. But for others, holidays are a reminder of loss. They magnify what or who is no… Continue reading The Empty Chair. Finding Joy this Holiday Season
Sometimes my kids are smarter than I am. I don’t mean in the academic sense—although, that’s true in the math department. What I mean is, there are times my children teach me about being wise and resilient. About giving something my best effort, even if it’s a long shot. About putting myself out there… Continue reading Ask For God’s Best and Give Him Your Best
