Saying Goodbye

The plan was to run a few errands before heading to the hospital but that all changed when my mom got the phone call. “Wait, what? Slow down. Everything ok? Ok we are on our way.”  As she hung up the phone, I had a flashback to dream from the night before. There she was, walking toward…

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.

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 Letter to End Internet Bullies

Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and pluck the internet from existence.  There are times when I thrive on social media and enjoy how people from all over the world can interact with one another.  I enjoy the community that it creates and the opportunities it has given people.  But, what I…

I AM 1 of 4

Today began just like any other day.  I stumbled out of bed, grabbed the babes and headed to the kitchen and waited for the coffee maker to pour me a cup of gold.  Black.  That’s how I take it these days.  Enough with the frills, lets just get down to business, right? I wish, honestly…

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….

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…

One Very Bad Day: day in the life of a 7 year old

I was six, maybe seven. I was a first grader in Mrs. White’s class down in Houghton, LA. I had lived there for almost five years enduring the very hot humid temperatures and large bugs. We may or may not have had a random lizard living with us, but that was as normal as finding…

Recently, I went to see the new movie Cinderella with my daughter. It was beautifully done with a great message, “Have courage and be kind” in all circumstances. You all know the story, we grew up with this treasure,  but have you ever thought about what Cinderella had to go through to get to the…

Finding Heavenly Hope

Hope.  What is hope?  I know we all have an idea of what it is but what does it really mean to have hope?  In this world we use this term, “I have hope” nonchalantly & freely almost everyday.  We will say “I hope I can get home in time”  or “I hope this meal…
