I am excited to be able to blog about what God is doing in my life. Join me!
I’ll be blogging about women’s ministry stuff, speaking engagements, my precious family and whatever else is on my heart.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven … A time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak. –Ecclesiastes 3:7 In Job 1:20 we read these words, “Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven … a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away. – Ecclesiastes 3:4-5
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven … a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance. There have been seasons when the circumstances of my life ebbed and flowed with the lyricism and grace of a well-rehearsed waltz. At other
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven … a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up. The seasons of killing and breaking down could possibly be the most dreaded and feared junctures in life. Death, decay,

God reminds me daily that everything about grace flows from a heart that is pure, loving, kind, compassionate, and selfless. The lengths God
My head spins from the abundance of lessons God is already teaching me about grace this year. I don’t know when the learning curve has been so rapid in my life. I’ll be honest, midway through January I hated this year. Yep! Hated it. I had such high hopes for it too coming out of
Blurry. That’s how I would describe the last days of 2016. Blurry not from the hustle and bustle of the season, no not this year.
