Simple Effective Prayers

Simple Effective Prayers

Have you ever thought, "why does praying have to be so complicated?" As believers, prayer should be as simple and instinctive as breathing, but for many that's not the case. Stressing over prayers was never God's intention for His children. We can get all tongue-tied and nervous, wondering if we are praying the right way. We complicate our prayer life by trying to follow formulas that seem perfect in theory, but leave us feeling inadequate and uncertain. One of the most powerful Continue reading

When He Speaks

When He Speaks

Wouldn’t it be great if God answered you immediately, every time you prayed or asked Him a question? Just imagine. You’d always have His clear direction and sure confirmation. You’d know exactly what to do in any situation. No more hesitating or second-guessing.Wouldn’t that be fantastic! Well, several months ago, I was dealing with a tough situation and kept asking God to bring clarity to what I should do.

When The World Says You Can Have It All

When The World Says You Can Have It All

Do you ever find yourself buying something you really don’t need? Maybe it's on sale. Maybe not. In a moment of weakness, do you ever simply declared, "I deserve this. Yes I do ... I can't have it all, but I can have THIS ... so there, I will ... and I'll be happier once it's mine." The world is quick to say, "You can have it all!" but it leaves us with empty promises. Every. Single. Time. We fall for this myth then spend our time planning and buying; comparing and scheming, all to Continue reading

Last summer, I had the privilege of traveling to the Holy Land with an amazing group of women.  For me, it was a dream come true. Visiting places and seeing actual sites that I had read about in Scripture for years was such an surreal experience. Places like the Sea of Galilee, Mount of Beatitudes, Pools of Bethesda, City of Jericho, Mount of Olives, Garden of Gethsemane, Temple Mount and the Upper Room location of where Jesus and His disciples had the Last Supper. I wish I could show Continue reading

What Mom Never Told Me

What Mom Never Told Me

I ran into the grocery story with one thing in mind. Bread. All I needed was one pack of hamburger buns to complete a last minute dinner idea. Instead of buying the generic ones in the bread isle, I decided to splurge and get the freshly baked rolls from the bakery section. After a quick check-out in the self service line, I walked back to my car with those warm sesame seed buns in hand. I barely made it out of the parking lot before tearing off a piece and slipping it into my mouth. If Continue reading

I’d Love For You To Join Me!

I’d Love For You To Join Me!

I've always played it safe. Kept within the boundaries of my comfort zone. But not this year. One of my goals for 2016 is to live a more adventurous life. I sense God whispering to my soul, "Take a journey with Me. One that's exciting and faith charged. Trust Me and watch what we can experience together in 2016." So I'm believing God for an adventurous year - one that's custom designed by Him just for me. I've asked Him to make the plans and set the dates. I'll do my part by Continue reading
