One Small Step of Faith

Awaken

So many times, I think we get stuck waiting for an orchestra and symphony to sound these great bells and chimes to let us know it's Time ... So many times, I think we get stuck waiting for someone else to validate what we already know God has placed in our hearts ... So many times, I think we get stuck because we want to believe we are in … {Continue reading…}

Unreasonable Hope

I had the privilege of receiving an advance copy of this new book by Pastor Chad Veach  "Unreasonable Hope" I knew the moment I learned about his story and sweet Georgia, that I would connect on many levels. The day it arrived I was so excited to open it and dive in... and then my heart didn't quite feel the same. The book is raw and … {Continue reading…}

For Your Approval

we-are-all-made-to-shine

Honesty, Integrity, Authentic, Accountability Just a few things that frame the way I am the way I am.   For Your Approval, not so much. Which has others seeing me as unashamed, bold, intimidating, fearless, and blunt.

Yesterday was quite simply just amazing. Seeing prayers answered in ways I hadn't in my little simple mind, been able to imagine. But Yesterday, it all came together multiple ways, multiple times. Like a big knock in the head from God himself- "Hello Girly, It's really Me." I laugh when I think of all the things I 'know" with … {Continue reading…}

Things Look Different Than I Planned…

Hebrews 12

I remember agencies closing and praying to find the right one.  I remember having a room all set up even though the wait could be two or more years. I remember having to take pictures to send with our dossier.  I remember walking past that room and gazing.  I remember every painful step that led to us having to stop and change directions.  I can … {Continue reading…}
