  • So, why repent?

    At the age of 21 I walked back into church, answered an altar call and rededicated my life to Christ. In a moment I felt peace and joy and that one decision changed the course of my life.

  • Finding God  

    Author and speaker, Joyce Meyer, tells of this story she heard many years ago—It is a story of three demons who were graduating from their course on how to deceive people in the world and prevent them from knowing God.

  • The Cross you carry

    Many faith believers wear cross necklaces, the cross of course being a symbol of Christianity. But being a Christian is a lot more than a symbolic act – it is a lifestyle we choose to lead.

  • The Art of Passive Aggression

    We all know that our words have impact. That ours words bring life, or they bring death. We either use them to build people up or we use them to tear people down

  • Embrace the new!

    Recently I was standing at the beach, right on the shoreline. It was a beautiful but cloudy day, the seas were rough and as I stood there I watched the waves as they rolled in and crashed right near me. There were rips, and the waves rolled in inconsistently.

  • Awaken leadership

    Just this month my husband and I have started an exciting new ministry called Awaken Leadership. It is an online platform which includes articles that we have written and information surrounding my new book Promise Keeper.

  • The spiritual side of things

    In Kevin H. Brooks’ Thesis proposal he discusses apathy in the church and moving people toward a biblical healthy discipleship model. His research argues the statement – ‘A ministry filled with servants instead of spectators will help unify the body and more effectively reach the community.’

  • The unknown

    Not that long ago we celebrated our friend’s 40th birthday. We were expected home at a certain time, of course to relieve our baby-sitter from their baby-sitting duties. We had an hour and a half worth of travel and sadly we were just 22 minutes from arriving home when we were completely stopped on the highway. It became evident that an accident had occurred only moments ahead of us.

  • Unfailing love

    An unfailing love is a love so freely given with no strings attached. A love we do not deserve, a love of purest form. A love that testifies with time, a love that redeems and transforms. This unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in him (Psalm chapter 32, verse 10).

  • A Whisper from Heaven

    “I’m here if you want to talk to me.” Were the words I felt the Holy Spirit share with me.
