The Power of Your Testimony

A God that gave us a spirit of power, love and self control. And what is more powerful than love? God given love.

Perspective

Perspective.  Getting to choose how you look at your current situation. It’s been one of those days. Weeks.  Months.  Where very time I turn around it feels as though something else in my life is falling apart.  Or do I just need to change my perspective? There are always going to be those days.

Just What I Needed

If you’ve been reading my posts over the last few years, you know that life has felt kind of overwhelming at times.   It has even felt at times like there was no way to get out from under this huge cloud over me. Here’s a quick recap for those who dont know:  I had…

Nothing Stands Between Us

There is nothing that anyone on earth has ever done to lessen God’s steadfast love. Ever. No matter how bad you think it is.

I Lost Her

Almost exactly 6 years ago, I had one of the hardest days of my life. I went from pregnant, expecting my third child and waiting to get my first glimpse of her. And then the next moment, I was being told that I wasn’t going to get to meet her. At least, not on this…
