Self-Talk Determines Mindset

The way we talk to ourselves and allow others to talk to us determines our mindset. I'm reading "Principal of the Path" by Andy Stanely and he states that it's our direction, not our intention, that determines our destination.  The way we talk to ourselves sets our direction - we might intend to live life … Continue reading Self-Talk Determines Mindset

Praying through the Pieces

March 3, 2019, is the saddest day of my life, so far. My dad, age 58, passed away after being blindsided by pancreatic cancer.  30 days is all it took to turn our world upside down.

Checking in or Checking off

Cool story share!!! The other day during my bible study and quiet time with the LORD, he said "let's go for a run" so I agreed, put my headphones in and started to run on my treadmill. 30 seconds in my treadmill shut off.

Learning to Fly

During my bible study this morning, I'm learning about joy in hardship.  Weird concept right?! I don't know about you, but most of my days start with prayer and bible study, getting my mind right for the day, then without fail I close the book, something happens and I'm letting my emotions, frustrations, fears, and … Continue reading Learning to Fly

How I’m Healing Anxiety through Humility (Day 1)

Anxious and worried sums up my life pretty well.  I've been blessed with the gift of planning and forward thinking. However, I haven't used this as a gift to trust God, but instead taken hold of it with all my might and I've gotten to the point where I'm living daily right on the edge … Continue reading How I’m Healing Anxiety through Humility (Day 1)

Are You Feasting on Foolishness or Truth?

Ever been in a position where you looked the other way from what was right so you could do something you knew you shouldn't?   I have many times, more than I care to ever admit, but carry around the 'shame' with me daily.
