Choosing Peace of Mind

You know how people say there are certain prayers you need to be careful to say? Like, “God, I want to be a more patient person.” Well, back on January 7th, I said a prayer I don’t recommend saying lightly because it just might turn your world upside down... “God, show me who in my...

10 Years Ago

10 years ago... October 11, 2009... I walked into my very first young adult “Reach Prayer Night” service on a Sunday night, and encountered the life transforming Jesus! I had no clue what was coming. During the night different people were praying about different topics. There was a woman (who till this day I have... Continue Reading →

Heart Check

This time last year I was working at my first ever fast food, correction, quick service restaurant. I feel like sometimes God allows us to experience certain things, not just for those watching, but for us to also see the transforming work He’s done in us. 10 years prior, 2008, I remember being so angry...

You Can’t Unknow What You Know

Christian Abolitionist William Wilberforce said “you may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.” There’s a revival happening in our (United States) culture today that’s centered on justice and making wrongs right. Many people are no longer willing to sit silently in the midst of wrong doing.... Continue Reading →

A few weeks ago, I was thinking about the personality God gave me, and I remembered 6th grade. I’ve always been a quiet person, so people TRIED to bully me in junior high. 3 girls were picking on me in 6th grade and said they would jump me after school. Instead of avoiding them and...

Generalizations

Many of us grew up hearing “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” Experience has taught us how false that statement is. Yes, sticks and stones can break bones, but words? Words can crush a person’s spirit. I know I’ve been guilty in the past of (intentionally) causing some... Continue Reading →

Hopes Fulfilled

To say the theme for my year has been “Hopes Fulfilled” is an understatement. In 2018 alone, sooo many things I’ve prayed for (some for days, some for months, and some for 10+ years) happened. I had a woe is me moment on 2 things I’ve been praying about for years, then I was gently... Continue Reading →

Unexpected Packaging

This past week, the thought “I didn’t expect that” came up a few times for me. On 2 completely different occasions, I was hit with the realization that just because something doesn’t look like or arrive the way I expected, it doesn’t mean my prayer isn’t being answered. I’ll give you a very practical way... Continue Reading →
