30 Days of Deeper (Day 16)

Recently, we’ve talked much about regret and past mistakes that leave us shaking our head in embarrassment.  That old self of ours sure could cause a scene, couldn’t she? But when we renew our minds and surrender our lives to Christ, we get a brand new slate and, even though we will fail, we fail … Continue reading

Recently, the Lord has been gifting me with a Scripture every single morning before my head lifts off the pillow. As I have been writing everyday here, I had to shoot straight and ask Him for as much anointing as He thought I could handle. In committing to this 30 Days of Deeper, I certainly … Continue reading

It was just a random weekday at Sam’s Club. My then, very young, Grant and I were pushing our way in an oversized shopping cart, browsing all the bulk. Bulk crackers. Bulk eggs. Bulk butter. Everything that day was oversized and only a card-carrying club member got in on those deals. Grant couldn’t have been … Continue reading

“Lead me in Your love to those around me.” This line was the first I heard upon opening my eyes just now. Literally, messy head still on my pillow, these nine words. “Lead me in You love to those around me.” A short verse from a song I knew, but couldn’t place. It took me … Continue reading

30 Days of Deeper (Day 7)

30 Days of Deeper (Day 6)

A few years ago, the Lord led me on a journey to restore hormones levels in my body and bring my weight into a healthier/normal range. Being a fervent runner AND learning my “healthy food” patterns in the 90s did NOT serve my body well over the decades. Come on children of the 90s!….. Raise … Continue reading
