Be Aware and Join Up

Awareness - it’s something I continue to tell my kids. Be aware of what Others are doing, be aware of what’s happening around you... They can get so distracted by the TV or their own desires they seem almost rude as they walk by me with my hands full and don't offer to help or … Continue reading Be Aware and Join Up

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

Gentleness in Not Weakness

Anyone that knows me probably wouldn't use gentle to define me, bull in a china shop- maybe, but not gentle.  I'm loud, opinionated, a rule maker and keeper, list checker... yet this time of year when hallmark is out to make all of us cry with their sappy wonderful movies, my strong personality melts.  I … Continue reading Gentleness in Not Weakness

From food  to people, from taste to character - "good" is used to describe many different things, so, when reading about goodness in the bible, I'd always align it with the definitions I use for good - like being a "good girl".  I end up seeking approval from anyone and everyone, hoping they would think … Continue reading To Inspire Change – Use Goodness
