Livin' My Life Like It's Golden

For a while I was feeling incredibly defeated in life. I wasn't able to find a career I could stick with because I wanted something different. After college and 8 years after, I wanted to delve right into an industry that would support and allow me flourish in the world of creativity, events, and marketing. But to no avail. It was as if I was forcing my square dreams into a round career- it just wasn't happening. Aside from my career woes, it seemed as if I could never get ahead financially....more

Cover New Land

I sit and watch people from near and afar. I listen to the stories of their lives and the things they have seen and heard. There are some people who are born in one city, raised in that same city, and never venture away from that city. I honestly think it is sad. How could you be given a whole world to explore and not take advantage of it? ...more

God Can Call You Out

Poor. Lost. Hopeless. Abandoned. God notices even the people who feel they can be called one of the above. One day Jesus was passing through Jericho and there was a chief tax-collector by the name of Zacchaeus who wanted to see who He was. (Luke 19: 1-10 NIV) Zacchaeus was a wealthy man yet he was lacking in his physical appearance. He was very short. Because of this, Zacchaeus was not able to see Jesus through the crowd of people who had gathered to see Him. To increase his chances of being able to see, Zacchaeus ran ahead and climbed a sycamore fig tree. ...more

Change Is Good

This week has been super busy for me. I have been trying to get my 3 year old back into the daycare routine, which has not been going so well. I have been attempting to mentally prepare for the return to the workforce. I have been having nightly talks with the hubby for our semi-annual check-in of expectations and issues we may or may not have been communicating. My oldest has started his last year of elementary school, so I am trying to get as much face time as I can. And to top it all off I am on day 2 of my spiritual fast....more

Why God said, "No"

When my team got to Kenya 23 years ago there was a large cistern full of rainwater that we used for our drinking and cooking needs. The tank collected rain, we treated the rainwater and were then able to use that water. Pretty simple concept. The only tricky part was it had to rain in order for the cycle to continue. But it didn’t rain. Not once. Not one little raindrop. And we ran out of water. So we did what any good group of Christians would do: we prayed....more

This Isn't Your Grandma's Christian Blog

Last month the blogger behind "Stuff Christians Like" asked his readers to share what they thought were the best Christian blogs. Some of the responses were the names of (relatively, in the Christian blogging community) high-profile blogs, some were of much smaller blogs, and several were flat-out self-promotions. It probably won’t surprise you, but not one of them was my blog. ...more
I agree - Christian or "spiritual" bloggers shouldn't be limited to what we can talk about.  ...more

Hope Is Never Shattered

Today I have faced sadness, hope, triumph, and the gentle touch of God. I drove a friend and mentor to his radiation treatments this afternoon. It was my honor and privilege to do so. I have been inspired by Sandy Steward and his walk in the faith. This is his third time in the ballgame of cancer and he’s refusing to strike out....more

LESSON 3

Saturday, August 14, 2010 LESSON 3 There is no title for Lesson 3.  It is what it is.  YOU MUST PUT YOURSELF FIRST!  Above all else, make sure that you have the things you need.  Make sure that YOU are taken care of.  God will help, or show you the way, or send you an angel, but it is up to you to step up and recognize, and take care of yourself.  What I mean by that is this; If your like me, there are ...more

Bride To Be

So in just about one year I will be getting married, 8-13-11. I have had a lot on my mind lately regarding this, which is probably something every soon to be bride goes through. I have been thinking a lot about what the bible says about marriage, and how we are suppose to live a biblical and spiritual marriage, I have also been researching the biblical term of submission and what that means to submit ourselves to our husbands. A good friend of mine, who is a minister told myself and my fiance to read this bible verse and then determine what it means to each of us individually....more
