Step by Step

I’m so far behind. I turn 30 this year and let me tell you, I won’t be making any “30 under 30” lists. Many of you can quickly see how unhelpful lists like that are. However, I did live my late teens and early twenties with a sense of big dreams and big ambitions just… Continue reading Step by Step

Rest for Your R.E.S.E.T.

As I think about R.E.S.E.T...REST has been heavily on my mind.  I was exhausted at the beginning of the school year because I'm an educator. Preparing the classroom, professional developments, lesson planning, adjusting, and getting to know my students had me ready for at least one day off! LOL. I was looking forward to being… Continue reading Rest for Your R.E.S.E.T.

Reset

In order to reset, you have to start with yourself.  When I first got the concept of RESET, I visualized a refrigerator with a water filter reset button. The image stayed in my head. Then, I heard re-evaluate everything so everything will thrive.   While texting a friend recently, the word RESET came back to me very… Continue reading Reset

Fear or Faith

“The Bible says that God “has not given us the spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). Fear is not from God; it is the devil’s tool to keep people from enjoying their lives and making progress”. Fear causes a person to run, retreat, or shrink back. The Bible says in Hebrews 10:38 that we are… Continue reading Fear or Faith

R E M T I Q U E

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11.

For me, this is the verse that always feels like a drop of water in a heated desert. It’s something that I like to hold on to whenever I need it, which is pretty often! Does it mean hardship gets any easier? Absolutely not. But what it does mean is that there’s hope for the future; and hope is a very dangerous thing for a positive personality type.

Growing up in a very spirit-filled church, I saw some pretty amazing acts of God and miracles that you couldn’t deny. I’ve witnessed things I can’t even comprehend from an outsider’s perspective, as well as my own! If you grow your relationship close to God, He may gently reveal certain…

A Beautiful Mess

Well. Isn’t that an oxymoron? How could something or someone be both beautiful, and a mess at the same time? How can someone look young on the outside, but feel so broken in the inside? If you don’t already know or can’t imagine relating to this beautiful mess, then let me introduce myself.  Hello, my… Continue reading A Beautiful Mess

Cynical Cyanide

I was pretty excited when my dear friend asked me to write for her blog. My first thought was, “God, I have so much to share about everything You’ve done for me!” I was convinced the Lord would lead me to talk about worship, His great provision, or His ever-present nearness in dark, difficult times.… Continue reading Cynical Cyanide

Heavy Baskets

My parents divorced when I was very young. Because of the nature of their divorce, I never had a relationship with my biological mother. After decades of drug abuse and mental health problems, she took her own life before the Christmas of 2000. As you can imagine, even though we were estranged, her choices and… Continue reading Heavy Baskets

Hwy 43 North

Traveling in Unfamiliar Territory Tomorrow is my 43rd birthday! I recently traveled from San Antonio, TX to Shreveport, LA to visit my mom. This was to be a familiar 7-8 hour trip, a route which I have traveled several times. I plugged my mother’s address into the GPS, gassed up, and headed north on Interstate 35.… Continue reading Hwy 43 North
