A Personal Letter

Dear precious friends, Forgive me but today I want to share, in a personal letter format, from my heart to yours. This weekend I am headed to the beautiful mountains of NC to Montreat Conference Center with the ladies of my home church! I am teaching a new three-session live event on the Book of […]

From Panic to Peace

When your days are long . . . When tired, torn and teary-eyed . . . When you want peace instead of panic . . . My friend, I know of hard places and sleepless nights. But I also know of a peace that carries one through the challenging seasons, and I have found an […]

Directionally Challenged

Somewhat recently, I was in an unfamiliar building and stepped into the ladies room. After washing my hands, I turned to exit only to open the broom closet.

Sometimes headaches and deadlines will not dissipate. Can you relate? All I can say is thank goodness for Advil and a fantastic daughter who sends […]

Do You Know What You Have?

I recently read an intriguing story of a wealthy man named William Randolph Hearst. The late Mr. Hearst enjoyed collecting rare artifacts and expensive paintings. His mansion in northern California has been a testament to his thirst for unique items and houses a rare and beautiful display. On one occasion, Mr. Hearst heard some artistic […]

Facing Fear with a Handful of Chocolate :)

In my natural state, I can be a fearful person. Fear of the unknown, fear for the safety of my children and concerns of the future can be paralyzing. I often desire to live in my comfort zone trying to control life’s outcome. Can you relate? Do you ever worry? To live life fully and […]

A Promise for Stormy Days

Whether you are facing a personal storm or a dangerous hurricane, God promises to be with you today. He is close when life is calm, but He is also near in the storms. God promises never to leave us. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am […]
