Waiting on the Lord

A baby! I can’t believe we’re having a baby! This little surprise came to us right in the middle of moving homes and jobs! The Lord’s timing is impeccable, that’s for sure! Although He has chosen to bless us with this little one at this exact moment does not mean that we didn’t do some […]

Happily Ever After

As girls, we all dream of being the princess with the Happily Ever After story.  We read books or watch movies that leave us looking forward to our future happiness. For many of us, the dream of happily ever after may seem like an impossibility.  We encounter The Enemy and our world is rocked.  Sometimes, […]

Who is God?

In my small group today we were talking about different attributes of God.  How do I see God and who is He to me?  In the Old Testament, the Israelites only referred to God by his characteristics… Yaweh-Lord Jehovah Jireh-Provider Elohim-Creator ….And so many more.

Standing Out

“Why blend in when I was born to stand out?” The actor’s words cut deeply.  Isn’t it just like God to use a line from a movie to mold your heart!?! How often have I blended? Too often.  When someone treats another wrongly, and I failed to speak up. Blended. When I know that someone is […]

Faith or Stress?

June 2nd, I lost my job! Without question or doubt, I KNOW God gave me the job. I saw him pave the way for me to have the position. In my mind, it was to serve as a means to an end of using the gifts He gave me. His ways are not our ways. […]

A Double Blessing

On Mother’s Day, our family was excited to announce to our church family that we were being obedient to God’s calling on our life as we moved to bring a baby home through adoption. The support we received from everyone humbled us but gave us strength in our new journey. The very next day, I […]

A Disciple who makes Disciples

The women’s ministry in our church has been life-changing. When I began coming to Grace Baptist Church in 2000, I had little to no experience in church life. The ladies of Grace were quick to scoop me up and disciple me. It began as an invitation to join them in Sunday School, then the choir. The weekly Bible Studies were […]

Celebrate!

As I sit here listening to fireworks going off in my neighborhood, with the sky sparkling and the scent of smoke all around, patriotism is in full force. Yankee Doodle is even being sung on a 4th of July special on TV. We’ve enjoyed a day of hiking and eating with family. I’m thankful for […]

All of the If’s, And’s, and Then’s

They had just come from Judah so Nehemiah asked them how things were going in Jerusalem. They said to him, “Things are not going well for those who returned to the […]
