Gift of Love


“A gift should not be given with stipulations. Otherwise, it truly has not been given but bondage has been exchanged for trust. Learn to freely give and to freely receive – such love is unconditional.” ~ Jennifer Goodson 2008-2014 © Copyright.

Peace that transcends all understanding . . .


How??? Everyone is so quick to give us a cliché of terms quoted from the Good Book.  Most of us know it’s true and order our lives after God’s leading trusting in Him in all things.  However, those who do not walk in that foundation of trust tend to be skeptic of God’s peace let…

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…

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…
