Everything happens in seasons.
I remember there was a season of my life that I had three children playing in Morada Little League simultaneously. The most sensational little league ever in my opinion, but not two of them on the same team. Two boys and my daughter played softball. The home field was just around the block from our home. But softball travelled much so my daughter’s games were all over the place. I remember I would begin to mentally prepare for the schedule and time demand of the
The angel came to Mary, just a young woman, and told her that not only was she going to see God, but she had been selected to birth something amazing from God…His Son.
“Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God.” Matt. 5:8
Of all the ways He could have entered the earth Christ came through the one the Father had selected for the purity of not only her body but the purity of her heart and its intentions. Mary found favor with God and He revealed himself to
GLOW with it…
A chief objective in my life, part of my mission statement, if you will, is to help people become successful.
I do this first and foremost by instilling in the them the resolute and unwavering belief that they can, indeed, achieve all that they have been placed on this planet to do. I can see it in my minds eye, my heart and soul. But what I see won’t matter if you don’t see it and believe it, too.
Helping other people be successful doesn’t mean God doesn’t have success
Don’t be Overwhelmed and take Courage
A step forward can be great gain when we use it to give Glory to His Name.
You’re steps are Chosen.
His Path for you clear.
He has seen each one before you ever took one.
Think about that.
Have confidence in that!
You can only bubble over with the Hope and Glory knowing you will have a Banner finish to this Year!
No matter what you face today–it is building in you a foundation for brighter days…if you will just keep going!
Hope has an anthem and it
What makes a wine good?
I have a friend who is a wine maker. Wine making is her passion and she opened up a winery to turn her passion into the reality of a dream. So I’ve learned just a little bit (just a little bit) about wine making from her.
There is a lot of art mixed with ingredient, science and heart to wine making. It is a process, but it is delicious for every wine connoisseur who tastes the final product. Just the right blend makes something beautiful, tasteful and
Last night I had the most hysterical conversation with my youngest child as he tries to decide what decade I was born. Once we had it all sorted out he was quite surprised and informed we that the Toy Story movies weren’t even made yet when I was born!
He is in the early middle childhood years and it’s so fun to talk with him. How he got a large vocabulary and mind he has blows me away. It’s fun to watch their cognition change and develop with age. The complexity
Flex your faith.
Stoke your Joy.
Share your smile and know you’re a custom original.
You’ve got style!
Take some time to celebrate all that is good. You’re the sculptor of your life!
Flexibility is key in just about anything. Make yourself like the willow tree and bend when necessary…
Be encouraged. God put His courage in you. He is the Essence of all things noble.
With Him, there’s nothing you can’t achieve! Watch and see what God can do!
Have you ever been waterskiing?
When I was growing up this was our weekend activity of choice. We went often and we went with some close friends. Our summer vacation was usually a camping trip near water so we could ski all day every day. I absolutely loved it.
If you’ve ever skied you know how challenging it can be to learn to stand up on the water as the boat drags you along. Learning can mean a lot of water in your face and up your nose. There is
Chances are…God is thinking about you right now and His thoughts toward you are lovely…
Once you discover this unmerited grace and favor and begin to savor what the Savior actually did for you, you are a member of His Family. You become His Chosen, His Bride. You don’t have to be a woman to be His Bride—it’s an analogy.
God looks at us the way a groom looks to His Bride as she walks the aisle to stand by his side and the two become
I invite you into my Tabernacle of Hope.
I have been sifted deeply and completely;
But within it all you have never left my side.
You bore my stain that I might gain something intimate, something lovely,
something created for my goodness sake.
Then your Love walks in, radiant and bright. Your Love walks in and it has worn a path on my heart and stains the soil of my pen—
I will never be the same again.
You never leave me forlorn.
You’ve bore the scorn.
You took the sting of rejection and turned it into
