The purposes for writing these blogs are simple. I pray after reading the posts you leave with PEACE and maybe receive a small NUGGET, not the chicken with sweet and sour type of nuggets...but the ones filled with wisdom purposed to feed your soul

As you enter into my thoughts, I pray peace with surround you letter by letter

I was awakened at 4:41 am this morning (9/19/19) and was given these words that I believe are a corporate word for God's bride:


There is a mantle that is over a chosen remnant that the Lord is giving a double portion. He is sharpening senses and will bear witness to things that have been and will be revealed to you.

Those who are totally surrendered and willing to be obedient no matter the cost are going to inherit their birthright. The fullness of it. 

It will be heavy. It won't be easy. It will bear a co...

Wow I have been so negligent in blogging while publishing my new book. Praying I can get back into this discipline of blogging once a week. Here is one I got today:

On Friday I had a meeting at the end of the day off site at a coffee shop down the street from my office. I was running out, closed my office door and BAM - I locked my keys in my office! No big deal right? Just find someone with an office master key to let you back in, right? 

Problem is the master key one of my co-worker has doesn’t work on my adminis...

Have you ever said, "some day I want to _________" in a way creating an internal bucket list? Sure. We all have. One of mine was, "some day I want to write a book." This personal declaration was usually followed by people asking, "what do you want to write about?" I had no idea. I just knew I wanted to write a book. I didn't need to know the topic because the timing wasn't ripe. I just knew the bigger picture of an assignment.

Then when God gave me specifics in 2015 it overwhelmed me. I had NO idea where to start...

I recently posted asking what people would like to read in a blog. Thanks Barbie for suggesting the topic of Christian singleness. Truth be told, before becoming a Christian I didn't know how to be single. I went from one long term relationship to another and sadly defined myself through the men in those relationships. When I came to the saving knowledge and grace of Jesus I was engaged and living with a man who was verbally abusive. After rededicating my life to Jesus and realizing I was living in sin, I eventua...

When I began my career it was commonplace for employees to remain in the same career and with the same company throughout the span of their life. There was a sense of loyalty, submission, and long suffering attached to the place and people who compensated you. Over the years there's been a major culture shift and the rules of employment have changed. My generation had the mindset of having one job in ten years, whereas the new trend is having two - three jobs (and possibly even multiple career changes) in the sam...

So this is a two part blog on discipleship with this being part 2. So, if you missed part one posted on March 19, 2018 make sure to read both. Part one is from the perspective of the discipler and this part two blog is from the perspective of the discipled.

My name is Stephanie Kelleher, the woman who Kaitrin has discipled since 1999ish. There are lots of things that I believe similarly to the Valencia’s. One of those things is that you NEED people “up, across and down” in your life. If you don’t understand that i...

"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith..." Hebrews 12:2 KJV

A few nights ago in deep prayer, I prayed these words from Scripture: "God you are the author and finisher of my faith.  I trust in you." After these words, I stopped in dead silence from that fervent prayer. 


Saying that word has a new meaning now. I was hearing it for the first time from the perspective of being an author. Despite fear and insecurities, I've authored regular blogs and written 2 books that are both in...

My husband and I have a belief that everyone should have people "up, across and down" in your life. What does this mean? You should have someone older or further along in their Christian journey pouring into you. You should have someone at the same stage as you (a peer) who you're doing life with. And you should have someone younger who you're pouring in to and discipling. This blog is a window into a few things I have learned about the later on the side of discipler.  Stay tuned for the "Other Side of Lessons in...

Whenever we go back to our hometown of Chicago we always battle to see everyone, from friends to family, with such limited time.  Of course family always come first and so this sometimes means we don't see friends resulting in some getting hurt, disappointed or sometimes even offended.  There's even been trips to Chicago where we go incognito without telling anyone and without posting anything on social media so no one will know we were there.

This trip during spring break I had a small window to see my best...

It's spring break for our children who attend a Memphis suburban school.  I get up, pack and go outside to get in the car and the weather is 63 degrees at a little after nine in the morning.  I sigh, see my husband in the driver's seat with shorts on, take my coat off, and get in the car.  Why do I sigh?  Because we're those crazy people who aren't going somewhere warm for our spring break vacation.  We're driving North to Chicago in March when it's cold, to see family

The furthe...
