Keep Your Head Above Water!

Sometimes life can be overwhelming. It’s the holiday season and every day for the next few weeks has been taken up with things to do. Let’s admit it. We are human, and not everything goes the way we plan. We can have a plan to get everything done, but sometimes that plan goes out the window with complications knocking at…

Are You Thankful For yourself?

Last week was Thanksgiving, and we were able to at some point reflect on all of the things we were thankful for. But I wonder, at any point in your life have you ever truly thanked God for yourself? Have you thanked God for creating you, and all of the things that make you who you are? Have you thanked…

Lives, Eat, and Breathe Thanksgiving!

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” ~ Colossians 3:17 Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and I am sure I am not the only one thinking about what it means to be thankful. As we know, Thanksgiving is…

Free Your Mind From The Worlds Problems

When there are so many needs in the world, how is it possible to help each one? This is something that I struggle with in my everyday life greatly. I see my family, loved ones, friends, and even strangers that are in need and immediately have the great desire to help them. But as I have found, whenever I try…

Don’t Be Afraid Of Success

It is odd to me that most people are afraid of success. They are afraid of the unknown, of the new, and of change. Yet, God is always setting us up for new successes and changes every day. A big part of Christianity is giving up our rights to fear, for the trade of trusting God and His plan for…

Expecting God

“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” ~ Hebrews 11:6 God expects us to expect Him. When we expect God to move in our lives, we are living by faith. Living by faith requires total trust of God,…

Draw Close To God

There have been seasons in my life when I have felt completely and utterly alone: Friends that I have become so close to suddenly felt so far away, and it would feel as though even my own relatives could never understand how I was feeling. Looking back on these times I am now so thankful for them, as I have…

The Power Of Believing

Belief is either empowering or limiting. It can open up doors for you, or shut them right in your face. Let me ask you, do you regularly believe the best about yourself, or do you focus on all the things you cannot do…? Years ago I had to learn that if you are always undervaluing who you are, and overevaluating…

Monday Motivator

I’ve been writing the Monday Motivator for over ten years, and honestly it is one of the greatest joys and pleasures in my life. I love being able to encourage and help people start off their weeks knowing they are wrapped in God’s love and protection. This morning as I went to write this week’s Monday Motivator I felt inspired…

Flu Season? No Thanks.

‘Tiss the season… the season right before the temperature drops and so does everyone’s immune systems, or so it seems. Already I am seeing more and more people in line for the doctor, and several versions of Vitamin C packets on sale all across the country. Every time someone says that it is flu season, cold season, or any type…
