When Storms Come

  On Thursday afternoon, I made the dreaded trip to the grocery store.  We are under a Winter Storm Warning, so we must be prepared. You know the drill: milk and bread in every shopping cart.  When the forecast calls for extreme weather events, it’s only natural to prepare.  Even those of us who live […]

Thankfulness

It is Thanksgiving week.  I love Thanksgiving…maybe it’s the food.  That is part of it, but I love the focus we place on our blessings. Last week, my husband and I were having an extra crazy and chaotic week.  A sweet friend in our church called and said she was bringing dinner.   I was so […]

He’s Our All in All

I’ve toiled around many different topics to write about this week: Veterans Day, Military Life, Service, Sacrifice, Thanksgiving, Thankfulness, Community. But last night, I stayed out way too late on a school night at a Chonda Pierce concert. She said something that stuck with me, and I really feel the need to share it with […]

No Looking Back

As a little girl, I’d go out in my grandparents’ garden after my grandfather had tilled the ground. When I tried to follow my grandfather’s footprints, I’d get tickled because his huge prints were cockeyed, almost framing the tilled soil. No matter how funny his footprints looked, they were always in a straight path. Now, […]

As long as there is Life there is Hope.

One of my sisters, before she went home to be with the Lord in February 2015 gave me this framed quote.  “Hope – Just as the lily brings new life.  We’ll build our lives anew.  With Hope and Trust the clouds will pass and Faith will see us through.” As we face the challenges in […]

There is Peace in the Eye of the Hurricane

I just listened to a powerful reflection regarding the “Eye of the Hurricane” by Danita Harris, a news reporter who loves the Lord. Her message speaks volumes and something we all can take into consideration. She makes note that in the eye of the hurricane there is less wind; more peace. It is what surrounds […]

Be Encouraged

I just want to encourage you! As I think about the devastation of Harvey in Texas and Louisiana and beyond and with so much going on in our lives; sometimes we have to encourage ourselves. I have included scriptures in this post to help keep you encouraged.  Know that you are not alone and God […]

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 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 […]
