2020 Vision

This was definitely funny, but the more I thought about it, the more I just couldn’t help but think about the truth of what God’s perspective on 2020 would be. While our view of this year might be negative at the present, I think that hindsight on 2020 will be 20/20, and we will be…

I Love Her

I thought that being who I was “supposed to be” would make me happy. All those years of trying to conform to what I thought others wanted me to be, but I was miserable. When I decided to lay down the people pleasing, I wasn’t even sure who “I” even was. I had never really…

Happiness vs Joy

An email from She Works His Way and the quote on the second slide about millennials by Jordan Raynor resonated with me so much today.

Lasting transformation takes time. It is not achieved via a quick fix approach or through a temporary diet and exercise program. To truly sustain a lifestyle that gets the results you want while also honoring God requires a renewal of the mind. A transformation on the inside is the only thing that will ultimately sustain…

On Leaving Things Unfinished…

One of the best lessons my business coach Jill Coleman taught me was to look for opportunities to learn / share insights as you come across them in your day-to-day life. This is one such pearl of wisdom—pun intended. I found this barely begun-to-form pearl in my birthday dinner oyster. Tiny though it is, it’s…

Where Your Purpose Is Found

I was listening to a sermon the other day when the pastor mentioned the story of Jesus in the boat with Peter (found in Luke 5:1-11). To get you up to speed, the gist is that Peter (a fisherman by trade) had fished all night and not caught anything. When Jesus asked him to let…

He Will Lead You On Dry Ground!

I know you may feel like you have tried many times to overcome some of the things you’re struggling with at this time in your life. It may feel as though you will always be struggling, but be encouraged that with the Lord’s help, you can find a way through and overcome once and for…
