Thinking Right Thoughts

There’s a battle I contend with everyday and it starts in my mind. I have to grab hold of my thoughts before it grabs and pulls me into wrong thinking about myself and well…pretty much everything.  A thinker by design, I analyze everything to death. My thoughts can drain me if I don’t grab hold…

Choose Joy

There was a long stretch in my life when I literally had no joy. None. Zilch. Nada. Of course I didn’t understand what joy meant until a good 15 years after I asked God to be in my life. Here it is. Joy is a supernatural by product of faith in Christ. Unlike happiness it…

Good Addictions?

Addiction is typically associated with the negative, at least in my experience. But can there be good addictions? Hmmm 🤔.

They were so pretty and wore clothes I could only dream of owning. Their hair and make-up was spot on. I envied them. And secretly I…

Your Life Matters

Ever since I was a young girl I wanted to be remembered, recognized, and cherished. It makes me feel like I matter. Don’t we all want the same? It’s the reason we want wishes, presents, and even celebrations on our birth day. These things make us feel loved. We feel like who we are and…

Inadequate Me

Hey there! Missed you all last week as I was prepping for a retreat weekend with my 8th grade girls from church. I finally recouped from the three hours of sleep I got over two nights 🙃. I love getting extended one on one time with my middle school girls, whom I see every Sunday,…
