40 days of CHANGE


Whose up for a CHALLENGE?!?! I’m not into New Year Resolutions – done that – it does not work . . . but what does work for me is giving God the first 40 days of each year. Instead of making a New Year’s resolution that you will probably break within the first two weeks,…

Hello 2018!


POSITIVE CHANGE – watch your world open and how you experience the rush of being alive.

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…

A Gift for You!


God’s love is patient and kind . . . God’s love is untainted. He freely gives and provides ‘untainted love’ to those willing to accept. untainted – stainless; free from blemishes; free from evil or corruption (undefiled, unstained, clean, innocent, pure, {pure as the snow}) If His love for you is untainted than should there…

Who would I be ‘if’ . . .


One’s identity reveals itself in knowing who they are apart from their gifts, talents, calling, etc.  It begins with a one on one connection with the Creator, the giver of life.  It continues when one learns to accept their self just the way they are. God’s word says He want us and takes us just…

What is Normal?

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.

I Don’t Want It Any More . . . .


“Forgiveness is beautiful. Giving up the right to hold onto something that was a wrong . . . allowing yourself to let it all go . . . Forgiveness is a breath of fresh air, a new life, a new mind, a new heart. Forgiveness opens the door for God’s love to consume, healing to…

Addictions ~ LIVE TODAY ~ 2013 ~ Day 34/365, Week 5/52


Raise the Standard It is amazing to see how far we have come from the righteousness and holiness of God. To find pleasure in the most grotesque actions, perversions without thought to the after effects upon the mind and eye gate, and human brutality to another . . . We find all these things amusing…
