Β We’re On The Same Side: Parenting in Harmony

I remember my first hygiene job out of school, the doctor I worked for was lecturing me about something and he said, “You can either make me look good or you make me look bad (to the patient). Your job is to make me look good!” I always thought back to that in several different…

He Calls You By Name

When the devil tries to call you by your sin tell him who you really are. Your heavenly Father calls you lovely, equipped, strong, more than a conqueror, more precious than rubies! The devil is a liar! He roams about seeking whom he MAY devour. Knowing who and who’s you really are and standing firm…

Excuse Your Excuses

Our pastor is finishing up a life-changing series called “How to Deal with How You Feel.” In one of the sermons he explained, “When you make a way for excuses, you excuse your blessings.” Woa! That statement really spoke to me and challenged me to think about some areas where I was not seeing God’s victory in…

Pray Big!

I just love this in everyway! I’ve known people that pray so meekly like they’re bothering or burdening God with their requests.

Time has no inherent healing power. Only God has healing power! I know women who are just as bitter and angry today as they were…

Who Do You Think You Aren’t?Β 

“It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.”   – Unknown  Too often we are held down by our own beliefs about ourselves—who we think we are not. What are you telling yourself you are not? A good mother? Physically fit? Educated? Motivated? Happy?  Today, I challenge you…

Strong Women

In a recent series of sermons at our church, our Pastor said you should be growing up, and growing out of things. It’s so true! How silly would it look if a grown woman flung herself on the floor and had a temper tantrum in the middle of a store because she didn’t get what she wanted….

Sometimes Being Strong Hurts

It’s easy to be positive when things are going great but what a strong person it takes to stand immovable in your joy even in the midst of a sea of negativity. To choose to continue to be positive and to focus on the blessings you do have instead of what the storm raging around…
