Embracing Our Children

In my mid twenties life as I knew it was devastated as divorce hit my world. Hopes of ever becoming a Mom were dashed. With shattered dreams I began picking up the pieces of my life. This time however God had asked me very clearly, was He enough? With a gut wrenching yes I layed…

Calling All Prayer Warriors

Alarm! Alarm! Please pay close attention to what I am about to say.  As I write this my eyes begin to fill up and spill over with memories of my own little girl who only a few short years ago went through brain surgery for her tumor. Today that sharp feeling of pain and confusion…

Intensity of Emotion

Screaming echoed off the walls of our tiny apartment. My sleep deprived body cried out for the night to end.  Each of us face our own crossroad moments where circumstances can push us to the limit. We can feel stretched beyond our comfort zone and we wonder, can I make it? The emotions are oh…

Two days before Bruce’s school was to start we only had $300 of the $4,000 we needed. Had we heard God correctly? Yes, we knew God had spoken clearly that Bruce was to do the Film Production school (click here). Therefore, were we to panic and back down from what God had spoken?  How could…

Thrive or Just Survive

Every day life keeps going if we like it or not. We however have a choice to make. Are we going to thrive or are we just going to survive.  Jesus says He came so we can have life and live abundantly (John 10:10). Yet how often do we find our life amongst the mundane?…

Comparing is Pride

Pride can come in so many different forms yet seldom will someone think that comparing themselves to others is a form of pride. Oh but it is! STOP for a moment. Think!
