“Friends” & “Followers”: Balance in the Exposure 

Were we humans created to be exposed to so much? For centuries, we could only really stay in constant communication with approximately 50-150 people, depending on our roles in society. We had our household members, classmates, coworkers, the people in our places of worship, extended family members, and neighbors. If someone moved away, we bid... Continue Reading →

Hidden No More

Each year for the last 8 years, I’ve prayed about and had a word or phrase for the upcoming year. It’s usually not until the end of that next year, that the word(s) make sense. So, when I felt like the phrase for 2020 was “hidden no more,” I was excited and nervous, not knowing... Continue Reading →

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 →

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...

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 →

A New Normal

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!! I'm no longer CHASE-ing the facade by swiping my VISA every chance I get. DISCOVER-ing the One who provides the real FREEDOM has allowed the CARD to no longer MASTER me. I never knew that was possible as an AMERICAN, where you're told to EXPRESS everything rather than wait. The morning of December... 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 →
