Today I chose to close the chapter on a journal I’ve been keeping the past couple years. Though there are great moments sprinkled in and some pouring out to God for answers; the higher percentage gave way to griping, whining and complaining. A negative spirit. It had t...

Sarcasm. We have all dealt with it on some level. It may even be a behavioral trait passed down from a parent or a deep wound that has created the behavior. If you are a people pleaser, being on the receiving end of sarcasm and/or harsh tones from those you care about...

As of late I have been reflecting on the last three fruits of the spirit in Galatians. Faithfulness, gentleness & self-control. The last one continues to be a point of focus over the past few months as I’ve been studying what it truly means to “take up an offense”, and...

I learned through one of life's most difficult trials last year to stop asking God this same question over and over. This was no easy feat let me tell you. Looking back, I now know why it happened, I've seen the lessons, even recognized what I had put my security in.

While I am now a sold out lover of Jesus Christ, have restored relationships and forgiveness of those who deeply wounded me, I also am a “former” pit-dweller… and I DO mean PIT!! You know the person who seems to be perpetually stuck in a pit? I’m talking about in a dee...
