An Encouraging Word From Our Heavenly Father
Seems pretty cheeky to say one can hear from God and even cheekier to share it with others. But if there’s a chance of this soothing hearts and encouraging us to trust God when we’re discouraged, then I’m sharing. Feel free to pass this on if it resonates with you. Blessings, y’all. The text of […]
You Be About MY Business, & I’ll Be About Yours
“You be about MY business, and I’ll be about yours.” Those were the words in my head this morning when I popped wide awake at 5:30 am after too little sleep. We’re in the middle of a house hunt with several Open Houses on the agenda but God made sure to put priorities back in […]
Web or Net?
The Internet. The World Wide Web. Digital Streaming.

Web: a network […]
Three Books, One Plan
This morning, God gave a very sweet gift of insight that left me blubbering.
For the past ten years of praying and writing, I’ve gone with God’s leading. I’ve laughed off the fact I’m an author genre-jumper, thus a publisher’s nightmare. This morning God gave a little glimpse of the blueprint He’s had in mind the whole time—

The Great Exchange
30/30 Prayer Challenge: Day 3 I stumble out of bed. Fatigue and nagging pain scream this is silly, that my time, especially in such a helpless state, would be better spent asleep. Yes I’m weak. Yes, I’m needy. Yes, I’m aware there’s no good in me to face the day. My need is raw and […]
Holy Is His Name
From: Images for Holiness: http://alturl.com/kx8e8Holy. That description can only apply to One. God is Holy. There is not even a shadow of a hint of sin or fear or despair or sickness or bitterness or unforgiveness in Him. Not. One. Drop.

The Cross Through Jesus’ Eyes
Recently, to honor the passing of one of our favorite actors, my family viewed the incredible movie Dead Poet’s Society. In one iconic scene, Robin Williams, as the eccentric Professor Keating, tells his students that he steps up on his desk to “remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way.”
