Challenges . . . Growth or Destruction


Challenges create opportunities for growth not destruction. At times I believe we wait on the sidelines for something dramatic or should I say drastic to transpire in our lives before we take action. It could be a divorce, an illness, loss of a job, or traumatic event that brings us to our knees. No, I…

Embrace Family


“Forgiveness is not overrated . . . Why? . . . because walking around with animosity towards another, holding a grudge against someone for years, allowing bitterness, resentment to take residence within ones soul combined with built up anger is the most deadliest  venom to a person’s spirit and their destiny.  Walk in forgiveness by…

“Mommy, you know . . . dreams can be SCARY!”


  “When you realize you are worth every moment of sweat, it takes to make your dram, your desires happen; motivation is strong, and your mind is renewed. When you proclaim you are made for more – you are taking out the negative and replacing it with positive powerful progress that becomes life changing and…

Power of Prayer


“When prayer is lacking doubt has permission to walk in and bring its friend fear. Together they can wreck havoc on a man’s mind and his steps will falter. Prayer can be intimidating for some but when operating can be the leader of right decisions for the right time. A person does not have to…

Steps to Building & Sustaining Self Esteem


I had the honor of participating in WE, the Women’s Eposium, that was held in Sebring, Florida a few weekends ago to help support the business women in that area. I spoke on the importance of building and sustaining self esteem and gave a few tips. Here is an audio link to that session.  Hope…

be you . . .


Be you – the ‘you’ that is designed to be His masterpiece. Don’t try to be someone else. Don’t believe negative words that have been spoken over you – those words trying to describe someone God did not create. You have a purpose. You’ll not find your purpose on your own but with God’s presence…

FORGIVENESS . . . is there a limit?


I had the awesome opportunity of sharing my testimony on Real Life Show out of Denver, Colorado a few weeks ago. I hope this changes your life and brings restoration and healing in the area of forgiveness. If you missed any of our shows last week… I have great news!!! You can listen them on…

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…

Happy Thanksgiving!


Brake 5 was birthed seven years ago after the Lord walked me through a four year healing process from experiencing a rape and the many issues that accompany such a trauma. During those four years of healing, God began to show me how He loves and cherishes His daughters. He asked me to simply show…

Let’s Do This!

Praying that your purpose for today is fulfilled and that God leads all your thoughts, words, and behaviors. Be blessed and walk in your authority today! Do not allow the enemy of your soul to rule or…

Keep Pressing Through!


Encouraging each of you today to push through! No matter what it looks like right now it is not the end of the story. Keep believing, keep pushing, keep opening your heart to hear God’s still small voice – the hope that you are looking for at this very moment is found in His presence not…

Balancing Life in Today’s Society


Balancing Life in Today’s Society I share with you part of a speech I had the honor of delivering this past April at an Administrator’s Luncheon with our local Chamber of Commerce. Also, this introduces the information that will be discussed in Brake 5’s Online Fall Sessions beginning Tuesday, September 15th. I hope you are…

You are NOT a FAILURE!


Do not look over your shoulder to see where you have been or what you have done. Your past is just that your past. God uses our past failures to make us stronger, BUT He does not want us to even take a glimpse or we may become like Lot’s wife . . . a…

Walking in a NEW DAY Anointing


If we are to bear fruit to walk in authority and the command of the Lord … If we are to walk in a place of righteousness … If we are to walk in this new day … We cannot be in fear We cannot hold the hand of our excuses, our offenses any longer….

Just a little bit of COMPROMISE goes a LONG WAY


“There is a fine line between right and wrong. A fine line between observation and participation. A fine line between hot/cold and lukewarm. Crossing over does not begin by an initial motion of physical action. It begins in the heart; in the mind. The physical action follows what the heart and mind have already set…
