If you know me at all, the title probably caught you off guard. For me there is nothing in this world I would rather do than serve Jesus wherever I am at. 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
Where Does God Fit In?
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?
February 14th-The Love that Matters
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
You Can’t Leave Your Past Behind
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
Live For Today
I've been thinking a lot about how often we say "I sure wish they were small again." I am guilty of saying that myself, and I'm sure I'll say it again. We have to be careful though,that we are not so caught up in living in the past that we miss what today holds. I've … Continue reading Live For Today

I recently decided I should probably listen to God about going back to school to get my Bachelor Degree and eventually my Master's Degree. It definitely wasn't something I decided on my own. There are plenty of things I could do in my spare time. However, God has huge plans for me and I want … Continue reading Lessons Jesus Taught in Statistics Class
Sometimes It’s Okay To Burn Bridges
Many times in life I have heard the phrase "be careful you don't burn all your bridges". I've been thinking a lot about this lately. I agree there are times you must be careful and not do this. However, I also believe there are times God calls you to burn the bridges in your life. … Continue reading Sometimes It’s Okay To Burn Bridges
Meeting Jesus Face to Face
I am blessed as God continues to put many people in my life that speak truth and that are living for Jesus. As we started helping with the launch of a new campus, I've been able to meet some pretty amazing people. There is one gentleman who in a casual conversation spoke some words that really … Continue reading Meeting Jesus Face to Face
Before You Say No To Fasting
About a year ago our pastor called a Daniel Fast. I read about it and without a second thought came up with a hundred reasons why I couldn't do it. No coffee gives me migraines, I dislike vegetables, and most importantly I have hypoglycemia. So I justified not doing it and fasted a different way. … Continue reading Before You Say No To Fasting
Go Ahead, Test God!
I have a lot to say about this scripture found in Malachi. If you are one that doubts this scripture this is for you. For four years now we have faithfully given our tithe and followed in obedience when God tells us to give above and beyond. We have been on a very tight budget trying … Continue reading Go Ahead, Test God!
