What You Say Matters

“Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” Proverbs 16:24 What you say to yourself has the power to transform how you see yourself. I’ve come to the realization that every word I speak over myself matters. I can choose to speak life over myself or literally speak words…

When Grief Is Just Too Much For Us

“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26 Nothing could have prepared me for what was to come on that day. It was mid morning on a Thursday and I had decided this morning to take a nap with our grandbaby Bella….

Walking into 2020 like a BOSS!

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1 HOW DOES A BOSS WALK INTO A ROOM? Do they walk in all timid, afraid of all the what ifs? Discouraged and pessimistic? On the contrary. If anything, they walk into a room full of confidence…

Don’t rush the destination

We recently took a family road trip to Florida. This was a first for us. Neither of us had ever felt comfortable driving a distance like this. 6+ hours seemed like too much. So we decided to take our trip with ease. Not rushing straight thru from Texas to Florida. But instead making a few…

Nourish What You Want To Grow

Nourish the seeds you planted if you want them to grow. A farmer’s process isn’t something that renders results overnight. The process is a time consuming and laborious cycle.
