Thank God for the end of another work week. It’s Friday and it’s time to pray! Do you often feel like there’s more to this our present way of life? Do you sometimes feel like your life should count for more? Living the abundant life is more than driving the latest car or wearing the latest designer clothes. It’s been kingdom minded, bearing an unquenchable thirst and passion for God’s kingdom. If you are ready for […]

A Brand New Week is here again! I wrote a short poem a few days ago about Leaving the storms of life on the outside. I was going to write an article at that time, but for some reason, as soon as I sat to do that, a poem flowed out instead. I started writing that post about a month ago, but I left it in the draft with only the title written. [See Leave […]

#TipsTuesday – Thou Shall Not Burn Out

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Mom Talk, Mom Tips

Reading through the story of the ten virgins in the Bible [found in Matthew 25], something caught my attention. The wise virgins had their lamps full of oil at the time the bridegroom came in the dead of the night. The foolish ones had no oil left. I thought, how wicked of the wise virgins, could they not even have spared just a little oil for their friends? “That’s not fair at all”, I thought. […]

I was just pondering on the past two months of this year. As I sit pondering on what the next month is going to be like, I just wanted a word from God.

#MomsPray Friday – Wisdom For Motherhood

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Moms Pray, The Praying Woman

Sometimes, some things happen to our children or they have some issues, or ask some questions, and we’re just at a loss. “How On Earth am I to handle this?” The truth is that living is an act and it requires wisdom. So does Motherhood. Why will I keep moving around in circles to sort issues out when I can simply look to the One who has the manual for life? If you’ve ever had […]

#MomsPray Friday – I Am More Than This

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Moms Pray, The Praying Woman

If we pause long enough from all our daily activities, when we have a few quite moments, when we can search within ourselves, we often sense a certain discontent in our hearts.
