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

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:
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
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.
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
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 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
