Are the ‘WHAT IF’s’ Holding You Back…


  If our hope – our trust – is in the Lord, then what are we waiting for? Why do we allow the “what if’s” to defeat us before we give our “I’m going to trust in you, Lord” a chance to birth life! How long are we going to hold back? Must we continue…

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…

Build YOUR Life


Second day of 2017 and our offices are already getting calls with how we can help people stay motivated and obtain momentum to achieve their goals. No! It won’t be easy! Yes! It will take everything you’ve got to do what you dream and desire to do – BUT ……  Y O U are worth…

Stress vs. Presence


It seems as of late more bad than good days have rolled in the front door and I can’t seem to get the back door opened fast enough. BUT as they say, ‘life happens’ and the marathon continues. Most days nothing that was planned was done and the things that were done were things that…

Our Aspirations . . .

Undeniable Love


“Giving of ourselves first to our spouse 100% may be unheard of in today’s culture BUT in order to defy that culture we must create God’s Culture by allowing God to teach us to die to self. Walking in unconditional love towards our spouse begins by allowing the love of Christ to lead. It may…

You were made for more ~


Woke up this morning to hear my 6-year-old say,“Mommy, you know . . . dreams can be SCARY!” How true is that! Yes, baby, dreams can be scary if we look at them through the eyeglass of fear and doubt.  When we allow our thoughts to flow freely without reflecting them upon the promises of…

Deep Roots


Fear makes people to do some strange things … unthinkable things causing cycles of sin that are so deep rooted that only the love of God expressed can bring repentance, forgiveness, and freedom. Show some love today and see if you’re not used as God’s vessel for someone’s freedom. All Brake 5 Blogs and written…

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…

BE Yourself!

Fear leaves as Trust Moves In


Remember this today when discouragement or depression starts to set in. Your confidence is in the Lord He is the lifter of your head and with all things He can do miracles. “Lord, HOW they are increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me. Many are saying of me, There is…

When you’ve had enough . . . .


“When you’ve had enough . . . you’ll know.  How . . . because your desire for inner healing will be stronger than your desire (craving) for that addictive sin, that oh so familiar sin, that one that keeps knocking on your mind’s doorstep, the one that is holding you in bondage.  And that my…
