My Personal Ridiculous Faith Journey

I recently was asked to speak about how to step out in faith and how to live it out. The reason I was asked to speak on this topic was because I took a huge leap of faith about a year ago and through God’s faithfulness it turned out to be one of my greatest blessings.   I want to take …

Ridiculous Faith

I recently read a devotional that challenged me to ask myself these questions—Am I living life by faith or am I playing it safe? What does ridiculous faith look like and how can I live it out? According to the dictionary the word “ridiculous” means ​foolish or ​unreasonable and ​deserving to be ​laughed at.   Sounds to me like God’s way of living by faith is …

Don’t Give In

Temptation happens to all of us.  I mean think about it, there are some of us who can’t even walk past Forever 21 or H&M without buying at least one cute shirt or some jewelry; there are others who can’t help refreshing their Instagram or Facebook feed every hour and there are even some who can’t walk or drive past …

Being Sexually Pure in an Impure World

In today’s society, it’s important to understand that you are not an angel and you are not an animal.  You were created to live right in the tension of fleshly desires and God’s truths. If you try to be an angel and pretend you are not a sexual being that can be a problem.  I can’t tell you how many …

Listening to the Right Voice

What voice are you choosing to hear today? “Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.” Romans 12: 11-13  Recently I was at a meeting that I was asked to bring a word of encouragement and …

Boundaries from Above

Have you ever driven a car illegally, with a DL or permit?  If you don’t drive you’ve at least been a passenger, but we’ve all experienced being in traffic. You have seen a white solid and the dotted lines. Those lines are there to keep traffic flowing so that no one gets in each other’s lane.  If it weren’t for …

Fear No More

1 John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” What are you afraid of? Is fear a threat or causing you trouble right now? Are you wearing FEAR? Maybe you’re afraid of opening up by sharing a secret, …

Give Me Jesus

I was caught up in a conversation a few years ago, and I was asked a question that left me speechless. Now that doesn’t happen too often when I’m engaged in deep conversations, but this was one of those moments.  In what seemed like an eternity of nothingness, my mind was racing scrambling for an answer. The answer I had …

The Why Behind the NO

My daughter started first grade this year, and I had to hold back the tears on her first day because I promised her I would not cry in front of all her new friends. Later that day after I had picked her up, we sat on the couch watching cartoons and I asked Gisele how her first day of big …

Through the Eyes of a Prince

I debated on rather I should write on this topic due to the backlash I may get in my inbox, but I have to go for it. My heart is not to put blame or add one more thing for you to do­–it’s really more to help shed some light on a topic us girls don’t talk much about when …
