Last night I sat with my husband and watched a movie. It was no ordinary movie, it was a documentary. While I did not agree with everything that was brought up in it, it did cause me to think and consider a lot of things. In the movie, the narrator has a problem and has no idea how to solve it. Instead of trying to do it himself, he searches
It’s the first day of the week and if your like me, you are thinking of all the things that you have to do. The laundry needs to be washed in preparation for the week ahead. The menu needs to be planned. The bathrooms need a refreshing, but guess what?! Our minds need a refreshing too. As we look at all that has been set before us this week, the
I am thinking of where I should start with this post, but I’m just going to jump right into it. As bloggers, women, wives, mothers, sisters, friends, dreamers…you name it, we all want to be our best. No one wants to miss the thing that God has for them in life. No one wants to watch the next person write that book, sing that song, grow that blog, or ______(fill
There are times in our lives when the normal, ordinary, and mundane don’t have the ability to move us from point A to point B.

In these times, it is very important to realize what faith can do. Most of the time, the only
Everyone responds to the love of God. Most people, when the clearly understand and see the love of God, receive it. However there is another aspect of God’s love that not many think about or even realize that they must respond to. Today I want to ask you. How do you respond to God’s chastisement? Create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
It’s Sunday and for many of us, it is the start of a busy week. If we are to be completely honest about all of the things that pull and tug on us, there are a million and one things that we could attempt to do this week. Yet, what we should do before we begin the week is establish a plan. So what’s the plan? I know that I
I have no idea if my praying friends and family members knew what they were doing for me, but the Lord knew. In the spirit, through their prayers, they were strengthening me. Their prayers were changing my situation because they were going to war on my behalf. I could not fight because I was under attack, but I made sure to send a distress message, and boy am I glad that I did.
Have you ever had a time in your life where you had a trial and you just knew you had to push thru, but the how of pushing left you bewildered and searching for answers? If your answer to this question is yes, please know that you are not alone. Like you, many of us have experienced trials, circumstances, situations, and issues that warrant action, but seem to inspire confusion.
We all have situations in our lives. We have people in our lives that are dealing with health issues, relationship issues, and personal issues. Not only are they dealing with them, but many times we can find ourselves dealing with the same type of issues in our own lives. When we are hit with an issue, one of the first things that we tend to do is stop in our
It’s April 1st and, while some are happy to celebrate “April Fools Day,” I am excited for a completely different reason. I have really enjoyed connecting with my prayerful sisters in the past few weeks.

Well, this is going to be one
