Walking in Career and Calling

Looking back at the path the Lord has led me on, I have at times felt conflicted. I remember when he first started calling and developing me for ministry, I was very confused. On one track, things were taking off in my career. On another parallel track, I was simultaneously having opportunities in ministry andContinue reading “Walking in Career and Calling”

Stories: Abortion & the Loss of Motherhood

The other day I attended a small gathering of Christian men and women.   As the speaker started to talk about families she also started to talk about abortion.  Hearing that one word was a reminder of why Women in His Presence exists. If you were to ask me the purpose of Women in HisContinue reading “Stories: Abortion & the Loss of Motherhood”

Wrestling with God

Wrestling is a physical interaction between two people in which one is trying to gain dominance over the other. Spiritually, we learn in Ephesians that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against evil principalities. Because of this, there are times that my flesh and my mind wrestle with God. Last Sunday IContinue reading “Wrestling with God”

God Gave Me a Stone

My dogs favorite thing to do is have time off the leash. This means they can run fast and crazy without bothering anyone.  It’s complete freedom and bliss for them, which also makes me happy to see. A couple of weeks ago, we were doing our normal off-the-leash trek when I decided to cut throughContinue reading “God Gave Me a Stone”

Attempting to read the Bible can be intimidating. This is because we have the misconception that it’s too hard, too long, and we really don’t understand why we should.  We think we are too busy, it’s not relevant, and it’s made up of stories that aren’t real. Most of all, we think it’s filled withContinue reading “Reading the Bible: Why Should I and Where Do I Start?”

Ready for War

He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow, and concealed me in his quiver. Isaiah 49:2 As the year comes to an end, 2017 has been a year of new firsts, a season of waiting, and a total dependenceContinue reading “Ready for War”


My grandma has always had a special touch in making a backyard look special and relaxing. This Thanksgiving morning, I sit in the backyard reflecting, resting, and enjoying the birds, fresh air, and just being alert to what God has to say today.   RELENTLESS. He reminds me that his love is relentless and soContinue reading “Relentless”

Surviving on Higher Ground

Today I went with my youngest sister for our daily walk in the rain. It’s a time we count our blessings that this little area has been spared so far. However, we take pictures of the increasing water behind the house as we toss a toy with the dogs. They have been the few toContinue reading “Surviving on Higher Ground”
