I Praise You!

In the arena of body image, we are often told to view ourselves with body positivity; as a wonderful work created by God. While this is certainly true, I think we need to shift the perspective off of us and onto Him when doing so. As women of faith, we are called to respect and…

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…

First Book!! Coming Soon!

The Savior’s Heart: Lessons Of Truth From The Gospel Of Mark 📖 This book was not planned. I was actually in the middle of writing my 1st book (which I suppose will now actually be my 2nd!) when I felt the Lord prompting me to pause & write this book. I wasn’t sure I heard…

Five+ Scripture-Based Tips For Boosting Immunity {FTT}

Something a little different this week for #FiveTipsTuesday. I know that we are all being very diligent right now to do whatever we can to boost our immune system and guard against illness. How many of us are being as diligent to guard ourselves spiritually right now? For myself personally, and many who have reached…

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. It’s not just millennials though; it’s just worse for them because of the number of choices they have. There have been studies showing that the more options we have, the…

A Lesson From Siri

Backstory: I can’t spell and need to double check if it was appearance or appearence… but was struck by the irony of the way Siri responded. It got me thinking… Are we considering Truth before blindly setting our expectations to cultural standards? Who’s opinion of us are we most concerned with and does it align…

The Hope In Joseph’s Story

The Hope In Joseph’s Story: “Things may look bleak in human terms, but can end up being totally different when our God comes into the picture.” This time of year, we read a lot of devotions about Mary and the beautiful humility she exhibited in response to the Lord. I won’t deny that I still…

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…

How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything? …Maybe Not!

I have a love hate relationship with this phrase. On one hand, I totally agree. The passion that you show up with in one area of life often spills over into other areas of life and transforms them in a similar manner. For example, up until I found a love for lifting weights, I struggled…

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…
