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 →

Spirit of Power

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 →

I’ll give you a very practical way... Continue Reading →

I looked outside at the rain and clouds (which are beautiful), and was instantly reminded that the sun is still shining. Just because I couldn’t see it or... Continue Reading →

Unafraid to Fall

At what age does fear kick in? Have you ever seen a toddler or elementary school kid playing? I remember when I was in elementary, and would climb to the top of the jungle gym, do flips, use my legs to hang upside down, and swing from bar to bar (skipping some), with no fear... Continue Reading →

Live! Live Now!!

This week, I had (and still experiencing) an in your face reminder of how fragile life is. We literally can’t take anything or anyone for granted.
