Training With God

The clock strikes midnight, we all hoot and holler, hugging friends and loved ones, wishing each other a “Happy New Year!”  For a few seconds we forget about the past and haven’t started thinking about the future. We celebrate in the present, ringing in the New Year with the people we love.

Trying To Perfect Christmas

Christmas Season: When we are filled with this overcoming want to be cheery and bright. Where snowflakes dance in the sky and mistletoe is hung in hopes of making two perfect strangers fall head over heels in love.

We Were Made to Love

I’ve always been jealous of people who are kind; people who are genuinely sweet natured and loving. They say girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice. If I were to guess, I’m pretty sure I was made with two servings of spice and a nice dash of sass. Being a kind and loving person does not always come naturally to me.

Top Three Leadership Lessons From MOM University

Once upon a time, in a season that feels a lifetime ago, I was a single woman with the privilege of working in full-time ministry.  I gained invaluable first-hand experience from church leadership about managing volunteers, casting vision, and leading a staff.  I had young, insatiable passion for ministry and time free from family obligations to pursue it.

Every Soul Needs a Shepard

Psalm 23 is a vivid picture of what our lives can be when we live under God’s shepherding care. As a king, David recognized that some of his greatest revelations of God came to him long before he carried the responsibility of leading a nation.
