Sunday Encouragement-Let’s Thrive!

Sunday Encouragement-Let's Thrive!

I love how God’s word always speaks to me. I read this passage in Romans from the New Living Translation. It simply states what we need to be doing. I love this entire passage but specifically, “Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.” Do you have something today that troubles you. Let me remind […]

Sunday Inspiration-The Beautiful Woman

Sunday Inspiration-The Beautiful Woman

Last night, I was honored to get to speak to a group of women about “What does a Beautiful Woman Look Like?” I used the passage of scripture from 1 Peter 3:3-4, Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let […]

Sunday Encouragement-Is It Enough?

Sunday Encouragement-Is It Enough?

When I started this blog in 2009, I had no idea what I was doing. I’ve made several changes over the last five years but one thing has remained consistent, I’ve always wanted to share my faith. I’ve often wondered if it looks like I think more about fashion & makeup than I do about […]

Breathing In Grace

Breathing in Grace

We’ve made it back from vacation and it’s bitter sweet. I miss being so close to the beach but it’s also good to be home. I always long to come back home. Even if that means coming back to some stress (we are still dealing with a very difficult situation), work, and of course housework, cooking etc. Oh fun!

But today I wanted to remind you and me of God’s grace. I don’t take it lightly. I know the sacrifices He made so that I could have grace. And to be perfectly honest, I’m desperate for it.

I sometimes forget that past sins have been wiped clean. I still mourn them but. there’s. grace.

More Grace

Even now at this moment I am in need of grace. I love the words to this song… Your great grace oh such grace……So I’m breathing in your grace and breathing out your praise.

Give Me Jesus

Give Me Jesus

I shared this picture with you this week of Camille and Nicole heading off to school. Camille is from Paris, France and Nicole is from Caracas, Venezuela. They both live in big cities. Living with us is a huge transition for both of them.

Give Me Jesus

Today we are headed to church. Camille went last Sunday but this is Nicole’s first Sunday. She has never been to a protestant church. Never attended worship. Never read scripture.

To be honest, they don’t have a lot of interest in going to church. They don’t understand why we do it. I want to explain it all to them. I want them to understand that knowing and believing in Christ is “life” for us.

But I’m not sure that anything I say will make sense. I could talk to them all day about my love for scripture, and how I want to act and look like Christ but it’s a foreign language to them.

So all I know to do is to “live life” and pray that while they’re here, they will see something different in us. I pray seeds will be planted. I’m begging God to do something in them, that only He can do.

Begin Your Day in God’s Word

Begin Your Day in God's Word

Begin Your Day in God's Word
I didn’t take this picture but saw it on facebook from Women Living Well. It reminded me of how I love to start my mornings.

The last few days I feel like I’ve been bombarded with sad news. Friends that are suffering with cancer, marriages that are struggling and families dealing with serious problems.

I never have all the answers, nor do I pretend to. But the one thing that I know is spending time in God’s word is not wasted. It is manna for our soul!

Today, take time to spend some quiet moments in His word. I promise you’ll be blessed!

Simply Sunday-Think Happy Stuff

Simply Sunday-Think Happy Stuff

I found this coffee mug in the hospital gift shop (I’ve spent a lot of time in the hospital this week with my family members). It looked so cheery and springlike, I decided to get it. I also loved  what it said, “think happy stuff.” It reminded me of my daughter when she was young, […]

Simply Sunday

Simply Sunday

This is just what I needed to hear today. Thought you might need to hear it too! Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 Have a blessed Sunday!

We Are Not Defined By Our Mistakes

Mistakes

source Somedays we need this written out for us! We are not defined by our mistakes or sins. Psalm 103: 8-12 says, The Lord is compassionate and merciful,     slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He will not constantly accuse us,     nor remain angry forever. He does not punish us for all our sins;     he […]
