What I Believe is What I do

Life Happens & It Stinks!


Life Happens & It Stinks ~ April 2016 Issue You know, if anyone would have told me years ago what I would have to go through to be where I am today I would have probably slapped them. “Nope. Not me, not going to happen. I’m going to do things this way. I’m going to…

Beauty is a Mystery


Each of us is intricately woven by the Creator.  He did not dismiss one detail during the creation process.  He filled our lives, our bodies, and our souls with a variety of colors!  How beautiful do you think you are? How great is His love for you!  That He would take the time and pick…

Living Dangerously


How many reasons will give yourself for not stepping out, for not conquering your fears? How many excuses will you give God for not believing, not taking action as a weapon in this spiritual battle we daily fight?

What doesn’t kill me . . . makes me?


Relationships come and go . . . We’ve heard this said so many times and there is truth in it.  However, how many of those relationships were ended because our flesh was offended in a way that brought in a wall of unforgiveness? Being a human is tough enough, being a woman seems to be…

SHOTGUN, I CALL SHOTGUN!!!!!


The battle is on as soon as I say, “It’s time to roll!” and my kid giants screaming stampede me before I make it out the front door, “I call SHOTGUN!” Really?  Are you serious? Ugh the joys of being a mom! (I love it) The “riding shotgun battle” got me to thinking about who do I have,…

Don’t tie the hands of God with disbelief because in the very motion of our surrender God is able to shift our circumstances. Faith moves mountains. Somebody say . . . I’m gonna believe!
