Goodbye Drama

So what do we do when it seems like drama has walked itself into our lives? What do we do when the perfect scenario turns into complete chaos? Well, we pray. We pray for wisdom. We pray for peace. We pray for the right words and the right actions to find resolution. We pray for those who contribute to or are the source …………..

With a Grateful Heart

I’m totally reminded that God has a way of taking care of us. That year and a half I lived here was a true test of my patience and my faith. Years later, I’m convinced its only by the grace of God that I’m still standing. From job to job and city to city, God has always provided and taken care of me……

His Plans Are Better

Sure, being intentional about our goals and aspirations is so very important but God has reminded me, especially recently, that He indeed has a plan for my life. I can choose to be resilient and prayerful and trusting of Him or I can be pessimistic, angry, and just negative. The later of two certainly would never lead to clarity or patience………

Devotion, Distractions, & Discipline

No matter how hectic life gets we have to find time to hear His voice. The difficulty comes when life becomes so overwhelming that spending quality time with God is minimized to calling on Him only when we need something or waiting on a convenient time that never seems to come. I have these moments when I know I could be reading my bible but I .......

Purpose Driven - Publishing My First Book

I didn't start off 2015 thinking that this indeed would be the year when my dream of becoming an author would come to reality. I spent so many years focused on things that brought me temporary happiness that I just didn't have the focus needed to be a successful author. It wasn't until I removed people and things that only served as distractions from my life, that I began to see things from a new perspective. Let's just say the process of accepting hard/ugly truths about myself was not fun but very necessary for personal growth.

Confessions of a Christian Writer

I don’t always get the same reaction when people learn that I’m a Christian blogger and writer. Some people assume that I’m some kind of Jesus freak that can’t talk about anything other than God and, or I’m on a mission to be as perfect as possible. Well, both assumptions are wrong...

Back to Joy and Contentment

If I could change one thing right now, it would be my career. I have this vision in my head of what I want my life to look like. I can close my eyes and imagine sitting in my very own office (with accents of pink, gold, and gray) leading, mentoring, and running a successful publishing company/consulting firm...

Dear Dreamer - Farewell 2015

I couldn’t think of a better way to end a year of blogging than to write a letter of you. We may have never met in real life but I’m pretty sure we have some things in common, from moments of feeling immense joy to seasons of feeling completely lost. There’s this tendency to feel like no one understands our pain or our frustrations in life, but really, if we peeled the layers of pride away, we would all learn that we indeed share more than we realize. So, before I go any further, I want to remind you that you aren’t alone.

Rest In His Presence

It's so funny as kids we want to grow up so fast, then adulthood hits us with so many responsibilities and challenges that we want to rewind time and just enjoy the simple life for just a little bit longer. Life is hard sometimes but there is something about totally surrendering our problems to God.
