Christmas day is quickly approaching, and I can feel the anticipation mounting. There is nervous energy everywhere you go. Parties galore and Hallmark movies, coupled with fudge and hot cocoa. The hype is building as we wait for the best day of the year!…

Day 34 – Examine Yourselves, To See Whether you are in the Faith

There’s more to being a Christian than attending church, singing worship songs, and memorizing a few scripture verses now and then. Am I really a true Christian? Or am I a counterfeit?

Day 33 – He Was Crucified in Weakness, but Lives by the Power of God

I wonder how many of us are guilty of this same thing? We want more proof that God is real. We’re looking for proof in blessings and materialism. Proof in large ministries and twitter followers. Proof in a life of comfort and ease. What does proof look like today?

New Blog Post Today…Being completely honest here, I like it when everything is okay. But God uses people and circumstances to reveal this thing called flesh. It’s not the prettiest sight.

When Everything Isn’t Okay

This morning I spoke to a friend who lost her job out of the blue, leaving her in a state of confusion. A few hours later, another friend called sharing concern over a nodule that was discovered during her annual exam. During our normal routine,…

I’ve got some good news….and some honest truth.

There comes a time when we need someone to give us a word of encouragement. We all encounter some rough patches in our lives. Times when we don’t know how to keep on keeping on. Times when we are unsure what our life journey…
