I've been thinking a lot lately about my love for the ocean. I have the same love when I look out at fields that go on with no end in sight. When we were at the beach a few weeks ago the storm clouds covered the sky. While eating and looking out over the ocean, … Continue reading Endless Love
I've been reflecting a lot about this statement and no matter what I'm doing lately God keeps pressing it on my heart. We can be doing a lot of things in life that aren't bad, but that doesn't mean that's what we are supposed to be doing. Sometimes we have to step away from what … Continue reading Not All That Is Good Is Right
I've been thinking a lot lately about Proverbs 18:21. "Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose." MSG version As I was walking today I noticed these beautiful purple flowers growing in the midst of the dead ones. Or, was it the other way around? Would these beautiful flowers soon be … Continue reading Do Your Words Speak Life?
As I was writing a poem God placed on my heart for Father's Day, I couldn't help but reflect on the similarities of my dad and my heavenly father. My dad always has time for us; so does Jesus. As a father he longs to spend time with us and looks forward to it. So … Continue reading Dad’s Gentle Touch
I've learned over the last month that God will remove even good people from your life to draw you closer to Him. This has been a challenge for me because I love being around people and talking! I have a devotional bible with over 1600 pages, and last week when I needed clarity the most, … Continue reading Feel Alone?
One of the hardest things in any part of ministry is moving when God speaks. We are either fearful of the future unknowns, sad of what we are leaving behind, or both of these. I believe we have come full circle in this as we follow the recent call of God telling us to close … Continue reading When God Moves You

Volunteering is defined as freely offering to do something, while serving is defined as preforming duties or services for something or someone. For me, … Continue reading Do Not Volunteer
In my past I remember having that "christian" checklist. Go to church on Sunday, tithe, ask forgiveness, pray, fit in a bible reading. These items on my checklist needed to fit around my schedule though. If something else came up on Sunday, I didn't feel I could spare money to tithe, or I didn't have … Continue reading Where Does God Fit In?
It doesn't matter what your age is or what your relationship status is. If you think you didn't receive a gift today, then you're wrong. Jesus has given you the ultimate gift. If you haven't received this gift it is possible that's why you feel discontentment today. Let today be the first Valentine's Day you … Continue reading February 14th-The Love that Matters
I'm constantly hearing in different conversations, quotes and inspirational messages about how we need to leave our past behind. It's easy to say your past is behind you, just move on. It's harder to put that into practice; especially when you have a past full of things that aren't always easy to talk about. I've … Continue reading You Can’t Leave Your Past Behind
