A Letter To My Children

I’m sure you’ll eventually learn this about your mother, but I thought I’d make sure it’s down in writing, just in case you ever needed a reminder. I’m writing only weeks after my thirty fourth birthday, as I’m reflecting on a gathering your dad and I attended recently. This gathering was full of wealthy and…

Who says your life is mediocre?

I recently read a blog that was shared thousands of times in which the writer asks the question, “What if I’m okay with a mediocre life?” However, in all the ways she spelled out her life as mediocre, I found it to be quite the contrary. me·di·o·cre of only moderate quality; not very good. Since…

We need you to do your thing.

So often I hear locals within my city complaining or throwing out sarcastic jabs about the city I call home. The people who were born and raised here cannot wait to leave town after high school, only to return years later in many cases. People who arrived due to work relocation or an avenue other…

Too Good To Be True

Over the years if something great seemed like it could possibly happen I would catch myself saying,  “oh that would be too good to be true”.  On many occasions I was afraid to daydream or get too excited about something. But, over time I feel like the Lord just kept pouring His love on me….

It’s Ok

If you are ever around me for a time you will most likely hear me say the term “It’s ok”. I wasn’t aware of how often I said that phrase until I had a little girl who is my mini me. I noticed months ago that after any accident happened or if something didn’t go…

Signs and Wonders

Signs and Wonders, what are they really? How would you define or describe them in today’s language? Most of us may be able to tell stories from the Bible about all of the amazing miracles that took place in that time, but if asked if signs and wonders were evident in their lives today, I…

Subtle Ways

Most of us in the Christian realm have heard the scripture and phrase, “the devil is out to kill, steal and destroy”. Most would agree that it’s a pretty intense verse and because of the strong words within the verse, some may not relate or feel like it pertains to them. Much like when we…
