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...

In 2003ish my pastor took me and others to an out of town conference.  While there, God showed me a glimpse of an enormous dream that was the call on my life.  It was a small revelation into a huge vision and at the time I was in no place for the dream to materialize (even though I thought I was lol).  God gave me just enough in a glimpse for me to hold on to during the years to follow that were filled with many mountains and many dry dry valleys.  Do you remember when God gave you the glimpse of a dream that is...

I don't share this part of my life very often unless led; however, with it being International Women's Day I want to encourage any women who desperately want a baby and are on the rough road of having challenges with infertility.

After two years of marriage we began thinking and praying about starting a family.  We were not exactly "trying" to have a baby but we also were not preventing.  So not getting pregnant after two years raised some red flags. 

I went to the doctor and they ran a bunch of tests and sure enou...

I saw a sign today that said:  Now Hiring.  Oh how tempting that sign was! 

This morning is a hard morning.  In all transparency, I want to quit.  Not quit life or anything like that, but "bite the bullet" and get a job and quit this radical faith journey God has me on. quit my faith in God.  I love Him.  He is my anchor.  But quit the "radical, illogical" part of my faith.

I've been off work since October, 2017 and really pressing in and hearing from the Lord in wh...

How fitting that this "No Smoking Permitted" sign is placed in front of parents protecting a child playing.  My first thoughts when seeing this sign were how smoking in front of children severely impacts children's health.  Yet, I see this taking place all the time.  Even if the smoking doesn't take place in front of the child, there is research that shows there are still negative consequences of the second hand smoke on children.  The smoke remains present in clothes, couches, cars, etc. and has a negative impac...

What lens are you looking through? We all have filters or lenses that we filter life through.  Our natural tendency is to filter things and our lives through what other's think, what the enemy thinks, or what we think.  These three perspectives will not get you to your God given destiny. Other's perspectives will not get you to your destiny. The enemies perspectives will not get you to your destiny.  Your own perspectives will not get you to your destiny. The only perspective that will lead to the divine purposes...

If you were traveling to or through a city and wanted to visit the points of interest, would you take this exit?  Of course not.  The purpose of the sign is to highlight all the attractions that the driver will encounter if they take exit 18.  But the sign is empty and doesn’t delineate any attractions.  When I saw this sign I laughed and thought: “there is nothing attractive in that exit…in fact the sign’s purpose is futile.  Why even have it?”

Yet, how often do we take exits in life where Go...

I saw this sign one day and knew ONLY the person in the right lane was supposed to or legally allowed to turn right.  While the left lane travelers had to remain traveling straight.  Obvious right?  Yet, how many times do we see someone in another lane (who appear to have things better) and we move to that lane to take the same turn?  When in actuality the lane you were traveling was meant to stay straight. 

Welcome to comparison.

When you look at other's lives, skills, accomplishments, an...
