Do you ever find yourself wondering how do we live at peace with others in a world that is so hell-bent on destroying peace in the name of fighting for peace? I think I may have found the answer in Proverbs 16:7. This verse is referring back to King Jehoshaphat. Read 2 Chronicles 17-20… Continue reading Peace 101
James 4:13-17. It's always good to start your Friday off by having your toes stepped on. Our life is just like a fog in the grand scheme of things. We have such a brief amount of time to make a difference for Christ before we fade away. "We know what we ought to do" but… Continue reading Friday’s Thoughts
My Own Fight for Freedom
A few Sundays ago, I had the opportunity to share my testimony with the High School girls in my church. What's so spectacular about my testimony? Well, I was a sinner and Christ saved me. It doesn't get any better than that! Seriously, that's the best testimony and we all can share that if we… Continue reading My Own Fight for Freedom
Church Members: Which One Are You?
In March of 2007, I came home to Knoxville from a week in Oklahoma City, where I had been visiting my aunt and uncle. My parents picked me up from the airport and I had an hour to repack my bag before we headed to Morristown, TN for the night as my dad would be… Continue reading Church Members: Which One Are You?
A funny thing happens every May, I find myself feeling a bit nostalgic and remembering my senior year of High School. Not in an Uncle Rico/Napoleon Dynamite way but more so as a Bethel moment in my life. In Genesis 35 we see where God told Jacob to go “to Bethel and dwell there. Make… Continue reading May Memories

Practice Ephesians 4:2
Over the last week, I have written and deleted several posts. I had so much on my heart yet I couldn't find the right words with which to say them. I have been and am frustrated over the political climate in our country. I am over the moon in love with my niece, nephew, and… Continue reading Practice Ephesians 4:2
Truth Is … We Can Handle It
Yesterday, my path crossed on Facebook with another 32-year-old woman who was struggling with the fact that she was single. I sincerely told her that it is better to be holy, whole and alone than dating the wrong person. But like most she struggles seeing friends getting married, coming home to an empty house and not… Continue reading Truth Is … We Can Handle It
Happy New Year!
Well, it's 2017! Can you believe it?! 2016 seemed to fly by. It's amazing how when you start measuring your years by the little ones in your life how quickly time passes! The general consensus on Facebook seems to be that 2016 was a very hard year for many people. It was a pretty average… Continue reading Happy New Year!
