When We Wait Expectantly

Have you been praying for a breakthrough for quite sometime, but you seem to be stuck?  Is there something in your life that you desperately want to change? You want your marriage healed, a new job, a child, financial relief, peace, joy, forgiveness… but God just seems to be silent or absent. If we are…

There’s a Calling for Your Life

Years ago… like back in the early 90s, a lady I worked for had a license plate that said “luvnlife.” I wasn’t sure that was possible because life felt so hard. I was a lost young woman, struggling to survive, and just trying to find my way.  Now twenty-something years later, I can’t think of…

How I Knew It Was Time to Quit My Job

I have led a fortunate life. There is no doubt that God has provided in abundance. For the past twenty years I have worked alongside some of the brightest and best people. I have been mentored by people who cared deeply for my success and as a result, I have gotten  good at my job,…

We All Face Battles

I spoke at the ONE Baptist Church Ladies Conference on May 7, 2017 and this is the audio file of that message. If you have a battle in your life today or have faced battles in the past, whether it is was within your marriage, raising your children, struggling through illness, financial difficulties, or life in…

I’ve Seen This Movie Before

(Trude, the title is for you… wink wink.) We’ve all seen those movies where the outcome is inevitable. The storyline builds and things might seem so bad that it would take a miracle to turn things around, and then suddenly the game changer happens! Somehow the hero escapes, love prevails, bad is made good, the…

Be Still and God Will

Do you ever feel overwhelmed from just thinking? Ironic isn’t it, we aren’t even doing anything yet, but our thoughts are exhausting! I could understand if we were running from meeting to meeting, hearing complaints of others, trying to decide between conflicting priorities, and meeting unreasonable deadlines (which is probably a typical day for most of us!);…

Christ Centered Counseling

Several years ago, one of my friends went through a devastating divorce and lost custody battle for her 5-year old. She was completely broken at the time, fragile in every sense, my heart truly went out to her. It was as if she could no longer think logically. Jaded and consumed with bitterness she began to lose everything…

What is Pushing God Out of Your Life?

I wonder how many times we assume that God’s with us, but we’ve actually wandered off to do our own thing? Does your life reflect any of the list below? Look at it from God’s point of view too, would He say that these things are true about you? Are you… Too busy to read the Bible Too hurried…

Priorities Every Working Woman Should Have

Why does society still want us to think that a woman must choose between her career or her family because she can’t have both? The theme persists in movies, magazines, and media. Stories of career-focused women who have lost relationships with their children and their spouses surround us. Divorce, broken families, and spoiled wayward children have become the cultural norm. It is so unfortunate that we are now inundated with stories…
