Sour Lemonade

We all have been deceived into believing one of Satan’s biggest lies, that this life, we have been given, is suppose to be easy and pain free.  Its funny to me that the man that is in fact causing us hardships and pain, is also the one that is telling us we are to be…

What JoJo Siwa taught me about Spiritual Warfare 

I had never heard the name JoJo Siwa before, until our unplanned, last minute, Descendants 2 premiere party. The girls were watching YouTube videos on the TV and this new song came on. Immediately, all the girls went crazy.  They began to sing and jump up and down. I listened, unsure I was going to…

Better than diamonds

On Mother’s Day I wrote a post that eventually was deleted by my own mistake. At first I was upset, but ultimately I’ve always taken the approach of Gods perfect timing with my writing. I never push a post, they must flow from the mouth of God through my fingertips to your eyes. When a…

After the “exodus” 

Almost a year ago we moved out of our house, in obedience, unsure where God was leading us. We only knew we were called to leave. We minimized our belongings and moved into the basement of my parents house until we heard the next step. We had/have no idea where God may be leading us…

A Confession and My Purple Jeep

I sat silently in a car full of noise on the side of a very busy road.  A few minutes earlier my precious 1998 Jeep Cherokee decided it was time to rest.  With my flashers on I slowly rolled it to a stop on the side of the road.  Semi’s and cars whizzed past us…

The Forgotten Letter

The car came to a stop and I took a deep breath.  My feet hit the Texas soil and a warm breeze blew my freshly fallen blonde curl across my face.  I wondered why I wore my hair down in the first place as the humidity took down each curl by the second.  As my…

Waters Deep

I stand with my feet in the ocean, the sun shining down on my bare shoulders from above.  The perfectly white sandy beach is in front of me.  Mostly everyone I know  is on this beach.  They are sun bathing, throwing frisbies, drinking wine & laughing, chasing kids and splashing in the water next to me….

Bolivia- coming soon! 

As I am prepring to leave for Bolivia in less than a week, my heart is anxious to see the Holy Spirit move in everyone’s life!  This trip doesn’t just affect the kids, but everyone involved. It is a ripple effect. It will drastically change the lives of the team members and each person that…

Keeping up with the Clutter

I haven’t been able to write in awhile because God has been working on me in a different area, the outside!  He has been sending little hints my way for the last couple weeks and this week I put those hints into action. It may be drastic for some and encouraging for others, either way…

The morning God showed me a little bit of Heaven

The sun was just peaking over the horizon and the rays were trying to sneak into the room through the holes in the blinds.  Distant worship music filled the quiet house and everyone was asleep, including myself.  As I slept, I found myself in the midst of an early morning dream.  For me, those are…
