When your Enemies are Yelling, God is Whispering

I have been reading through Crash the Chatterbox by Steven Furtick – It is all about hearing God’s voice above all others.

I think that it is such a powerful message to understand… because so often the thoughts in our head are not voices we need to listen to.

This is the second video of our “Video Book Club” where I cover the second section of the book: All about Fear!

Watch the video now:

I loved reading through the story of Elijah – a famous prophet in the Old Testament. read more

Rise up to the Opportunity

Yesterday at church, a message was shared about Rising Up… and it got me thinking about all the opportunities in our lives that God has called us to stretch ourselves so that His mission can be completed.

In my video, I talk about our personal seasons where God has called us from being comfortable to uncomfortable. I’ve learned that God calls us to go, move, rise… He doesn’t want us to settle.

I feel like all of us are called to do something that can make an impact. He gives us opportunities where we can have more influence over the people around us for good! read more

Is THIS the secret to Reaching Your Goals?

How much time do you really need to form a new habit??

The secret to REACHING your New Years Goals to to make small changes in your daily life.

If you change your daily habits, you can change your life!!

Based on a recent study, on average it takes more than 2 months before a new behavior becomes automatic — 66 days to be exact.

There is no reason to get down on yourself if you try something for a few weeks and it doesn’t become a habit. It’s supposed to take longer than that! (This is why Most people give up on their New Years resolutions by Valentine’s Day) read more

Forgetting Your Past

Something that I think can hold you back more than anything is your past.

We give so much power to something we can’t change… and let if effect our future.

We remember when we stumbled and failed and miss the goal so much that it hinders us from pressing on to our purpose and all that our future holds. Free yourself from your past!! You can be future focused today and focused on the prize ahead. 

Today’s Scripture is from Paul’s writing to the Philippians:

Watching them grow…

This is a post I wrote almost 4 years ago… and I think about what a “baby” mom I was, haha!

I didn’t have a CLUE what it was going to be like to be a mom… but I was going to do everything I could to make the best decisions for her. Now, I’m a mom of two and I just have to laugh at how much life has changed.

Aidalyn is 5 and is still independent… but she loves being a big sister and she always wants to do the right thing. I love her spirit and the joy she brings. read more

My Prayer for you, Dreamer

Today I’m praying for you, Dreamer <3 

The world doesn’t like dreamers – They never have!

I’m not sure if it is just that people aren’t comfortable with new ideas… or they don’t like change.

But God LOVES dreams 🙂

God is the God of BIG Dreams.

They don’t scare him one bit!!

I think of Joseph who was made fun of by his family for being a Dreamer. God created those dreams inside Joseph’s heart and they were SO BIG that everyone just laughed and mocked Joseph. read more

When Being Healthy Becomes Your Idol

When Being Healthy Becomes Your Idol

Striving for health is not a bad thing. Putting health before God is.

When you make health your idol, you are turning it into something your heart desires before God. An idol is anything you put before God.

There are plenty of amoral things that become idols in our lives. Amoral = neutral (Not Bad or Good). Amoral things that can turn into idols could be your kids, your hobbies, your spouse, your status, your job, or even how you use your spare time and money.

How to Identify Your Idols 

Mark Driscoll states that “Idolatry is often a good thing that becomes a god thing and one of the surest ways to find your idol is to follow your money. Jesus, a master of word play, irony, and satire, uses humor to speak truth to the rich ruler by showing him two ways to find idols: follow the money and figure out what’s not funny to you.” read more

Why are you here?

 why are you here?

Why are You Here?

Have you ever laid awake at night and asked yourself “Why am I here?” or “What am I supposed to be doing with my life?”

Have you ever thought about how much you have to offer?

Everyone has different strengths and value to add based on their background and experiences. It is what makes you, “you.”

Sometimes it helps to put the pen to the paper and get organized. By organizing your skills, experiences and knowledge, you can have a better understanding about what you have to offer your work, church and other volunteer roles. read more

How to keep Growing in Life

How to keep growing in life

How to keep growing and to have life among the growing.

Life Among the Growing…. What does that actually mean to me?

This phrase really speaks to me deeply in several ways.

First, I think about how I want to be continually growing into a better person with each day and opportunity I get. If you aren’t moving forward, you are moving backwards. If you aren’t growing, you are dying. 

This is in my personal life as a wife and mom. In my spiritual life, I want to continually study and grow in God’s words. read more
