Who are your people?

“Life was never meant to be lived alone.” I used to hear this growing up and yet finding solid friends was always a struggle for me. Be it my past experiences and how I grew up, or just the fact that God had a call on my life and it rubbed people the wrong way, I had a hard time with keeping lasting friendships. That was before I understood there are three types of friends in life, and I am going to discuss them below. So without further ado let’s get into… Read More

Seeing Ourselves Through God’s Eyes

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 NIV Hello ladies, I know it has been a minute since I wrote you, but I had some personal things come up in my life that needed my attention. One of those is having to deal with old hurts and wounds I’ve covered up instead of giving them over to the Lord to heal. Growing up I was always addicted to approval, never learned the respect of boundaries – for myself and others -, and had issues with the… Read More

Taking A Stand

” How happy is the man who does not follow the advice of the wicked or take the path of sinners or join a group of mockers!

Most of you know I am a paraprofessional – a teaching assistant – at a public school in my city, and unfortunately because of the wickedness going on in our government and those who govern our… Read More

Beacon Of Hope

“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NLT Being a woman of peace and hope is extremely important, especially if God has given us a platform to teach and train up other women, and this has been something I’ve strived for over the past ten years. The world today is full of chaos, drama, and heartache. Yet the way we live and how we… Read More

Where Is Your Line Of Conviction?

Conviction: “A strong persuasion or belief” Merriam Webster Dictionary Over the past few months I’ve been thinking about conviction, and in a recent devotional I’m doing they asked the question, “Where is your line of conviction? What areas will you not compromise on?” I’ve been struggling with how to write this because it is a very deep topic and in an effort to keep the post brief today, I’m only going to touch on a few things. First, as a follower of Jesus our convictions should be filtered through the Word. Second,… Read More

Safeguarding Your Heart

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Proverbs 4:23 NIV There is a story I read once of a wealthy man who enjoyed collecting rare works of art. He had many pieces in his collection from Picasso to Raphael. During the Vietnam War his son died in battle rescuing another soldier, and the man grieved deeply for him. One day a young man stopped by and dropped off a large package. It was the soldier who had been rescued, and he said to the older gentleman,… Read More

Observing Lent Embracing Easter
