Identity ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 23/365, Week 4/52

Fear ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 17/365, Week 3/52


Fear “Fear holds one bond to a thought long enough for the heart to be darken to the truth. Belief of a fear can overpower ones trust in the Lord that the sight of hope is lost. Then the origination of that fear is overshadowed, covered up by the lie.”  ~ excerpt from Insightful Reflections…

Surrender ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 13/365, Week 2/52

Shotgun! ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 12/365, Week 2/52


SHOTGUN, I CALL SHOTGUN!!!!! My kids, even today at age 14 and 12, override my 6-year-old by constantly calling ‘SHOTGUN’, every time it’s time to roll.  She does not have a clue what it means or how to be the one who makes the first call. (sigh) The battle is on as soon as I…

2013 ~ 52 Weeks, 365 Days ~ Here We Come, Ready or Not!


Well, well, well  . . . we survived the ‘end of the world’ at least twice in the last two years. What do you think will be predicted for 2013?  (sigh)  When will these idiots realize that the only, ‘ending to life’ , will happen . . . unexpectedly?  That there is not a pre-planned…

When not writing . . .


Many wonder what I do when I am not writing, free-lance editing, being a wife, a full-time mom, running our business, teaching art and dance conferences, obtaining my degree, speaking, coaching, or counseling.  Well, on the side when all my Matter Hatter Days slow down and I have time for a great cup of hot…

A Religious Mindset Brings Destruction . . .


“Anything can become religious – even religion.   It is the heart motivation behind a thought, a word, or an action that has the power to make it full of liberation. Only man places religious limitations upon themselves or another.  Our relationship with Christ is not to be held within the realms of a 4-sided…

What has your attention?


“God will use anything to trigger a moment in order for His love to consume us and freedom to invade us.” A few weeks back, I found myself at that moment where I began asking God to soften my heart; allow me to see through His eyes the lives of His creation. Sometimes He uses…

Are you a Self-Seeker or a God-Seeker?


Self-seekers bare their name upon their hearts. They shout it loud. Declaring it long enough to gain attention. All their deeds, words, creativity is marred by seeking the approval of men. Only to find short gratification that spins them off on another self-seeking attention pick-me-up. God-seekers bare His name. Declaring Him, Christ as the Creator…

Love is a choice of action . . .


Love is a gift of giving and receiving – the exchange is sweet and always life changing. Some say that love is like taking the black and white of everyday life and then adding a little color. Skeptics say love can seem to detour our day-to-day concerns into a temporary fade. Finding ourselves in a…

Someone’s Fighting for You and Me . . .


More than 2,000 years ago someone was thinking of me, fighting for my life, fighting for my soul, fighting for my bloodline. Fighting for my health, my finances . . . fighting for my destiny. Christ thought of me even then – before my heartbeat sounded, before my flesh began, before the atmosphere of this…

~ Created for Love ~


Our challenge as women is found in the unique creation of being…. We are made to uniquely feel, live, love, and be a creature that reproduces love. Satan’s war against us is to fight what and who we are because our very presence stands for the one key that will heal this dying world. L…
