Every Monday I do something on Instagram called “Pray with Me Monday” and a few weeks ago we prayed for the Broke Folks. No no no, not those broke folks. The broken ones.
What are you crazy passionate about? What’s that one subject that, once you get going, no one can seem to shut you up? What makes your mind race with ideas and excitement flood your body? And please tell me why you aren’t doing anything with all of that passion? I mean seriously, how have you…
Settled but Not Settling
“Happiness.” Now there goes an interesting word. It almost seems abstract – elusive even. It’s as though it constantly lives beyond the reach of all of those who would dare to pursue it.
Start small, Think BIG
“Whatever you’re thinking, think bigger.” That’s what my mentor said to me the last time we spoke. As I shared my goals and aspirations with her, somehow she could still sense that I was selling myself short. Hey, don’t leave me out here by myself, you know you do it too.
Jesus Finished, So When Will You Start?
Forgive me for prying but I just have to ask: when are you going to get to work? Resurrection Sunday was a little over a week ago and if you’re anything like me, your day went something like this: you went to church, offered thanks and praises to our Lord and Savior for His finished…
Put Some Action on Your Faith
God gave me some instructions the other day that frustrated me. I wanted to cry. I felt like the thing He was asking me to do would set me back in so many ways, including prolonging the time it will take for me to reach a very important personal goal of mine.

There’s nothing wrong with inflexibility when it comes to our beliefs but, believe it or not, flexibility in another regard is vital for any Christian that hopes to…
Tell Us the Story Behind Your Fireproof Faith
This time last year I was living in a homeless shelter. That wasn’t an easy reality to face back then but I was very grateful. Grateful to have a roof over mine and my children’s heads, food to eat and an opportunity to start over again. I haven’t been the same since. Never had I…
Sheltered in Love
I’m an Enneagram Type 2. That fact alone will tell you a lot of things about me, including: 1. My deepest need and desire is to be loved simply for who I am; and 2. My deepest fear is never actually having the good fortune of experiencing that. Couple that with the recent dip in…
Stop Talking Over the GPS
I turned the GPS off last week and I’ve been lost ever since. My failure to post on March 4th serves as evidence of this. Prior to that, I had never been so confident of God’s leading in my life. Never had I been so sure that I was finally headed in the right direction.
