A year ago in late spring the Lord told me He wanted me to go to Israel with a trip my pastor was planning. The deposit was due by August 2018. Because my husband would be going also the deposit would of course be double. $1,000 by August that I didn’t have. But that’s not stopped God before. I remember the Lord telling me that it didn’t matter what my bank account looked like, pay the deposit no matter what, even if it left me with pennies in my account.
God tends to have a preference for the Impossible. That’s where He does His best work. The impossible seems to be His specialty. In fact, Ge does His BEST work when the odds are stacked against us.
David met up with a giant. Moses opposed the leader of Egypt. Daniel prayed when He was told not to. Esther stepped into territory she wasn’t allowed. Ruth forsook her birthright for the Identity of God through Naomi. She stepped foot on the threshing floor and received for herself a Kinsman Redeemer named Boaz

Let me take a moment to introduce myself. Whether you’ve been following me for days, weeks, years or have only just discovered this blog- I will begin as if we are only just beginning together.
Together sounds good doesn’t it?
Together sounds strong.
Together has a layer of supplemental strength that can’t go wrong.
There is infinite power in together.

This very minute I’m at a leadership conference in the greater Dallas area.
I’ve been involved with a business of nutrition for more than twenty years now. It has blessed my life in countless ways. Countless ways.
I have deep conviction in my heart that my God used what I have learned through the leadership training, the products and the people—well… it is of invaluable worth. I also love the culture. So many wonderfully successful people who just simply love and care about others. And that is exactly what made them prosper.

Because of the nature of Noah’s Intimacy with Heaven he was immune to the commentary of his peers. It may be true he didn’t like it, but it didn’t waiver or move him to unmove what God had asked him to move. So he moved…the comfort zone of every human on the planet. Figuratively and then literally!
There are days we feel fierce…
And there are days we feel fiercely little.
On both days—no matter how you feel, know that God is real and He is the Power behind it all. Meaning, whatever you do and no matter how you feel, He will go with you. Always beside you. His love for you is real. So square your shoulders and drink in this scripted mental and spiritual vitamin elixir. May you be strengthened for your day:
🔻You are more than a Conqueror with Christ. (Romans 8:37)
🔻When you feel weak, He
You Won’t Go Under
Yesterday was yet another full and hectic day-but deep down I know wouldn’t have it any other way. I have a large family, clients who want training and a car that takes me wherever I want to go. I am indeed blessed. The afternoon was spent poolside at the school watching my son play in a water polo match. Those boys swim back and forth and track that yellow ball as they attempt to shoot and score. Sometimes they get pulled at to keep them from advancing
“Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass”
1 Thes. 5:24
Noah believed and held onto a promise of God for his life for many, many years. He endured insults, rejection and jeers-but that didn’t keep him from putting one foot in front of the other, hammer to the hull. Not only did everything the Lord told him happen, he saved his family from despair and he created a marvelous invention that had never been seen, required or desired before. Talk about a Visionary!
Next time you
Each day of your life is like a page in the story of your life. What will be written today?
I love to write. It is in me to do so since childhood. As I reflect back over my life I see how he directed me to my pen over and over again.
I love a good pen.
I adore the touch and feel, the luster of quality paper.
I have countless volumes of journals. I type on the keyboard, but it just isn’t the same. There’s something magnificent to me about the creative
