Do you trust your Pilot?

Sitting here waiting for the airplane to take off and my mind starts wandering as I look around. It’s so easy to see everyone comes from a different walk of life. Little ones sitting beside their parents playing games quietly on their iPads. Medium sized ones talking to the ones next to them about their … Continue reading Do you trust your Pilot?

A little goes a looong way

Sometimes we make things so complicated. Our kids aren’t looking for the next Pinterest worthy accolade. Sometimes it’s a simple love note in a lunch box or crayon doodles on the back of a paper plate waiting to surprise them when they get up in the morning for their first day of school. It’s so … Continue reading A little goes a looong way

“Where ya joy at?”

I kept trying to rename this post.  But I can't get past these words. My heart is so burdened for us as the church this morning. Where.  Is.  Our.  Joy??  When the world looks at us, do they see anything that makes them want what we have?  Heck, do we look like we want what we … Continue reading “Where ya joy at?”

They also pastor a growing church in Braydenton, FL.   She's young. A healthy eater. And cancer doesn't … Continue reading Fighting With Faith

It ain’t over ’til God says it’s over.

It's hard calling it "Good Friday."  Because for what it appeared, it looked to be anything but good.  The Messiah flogged, beaten, spit upon, mocked and his tattered flesh brutally nailed to a wooden splinter-ridden cross.  Sounds more like #worstdayever Ohhh honey... but I believe Jesus knew deep down, despite the physical agony, despite the … Continue reading It ain’t over ’til God says it’s over.

Little Victories

Today, it happened. And I can't contain myself!   Today, I stepped on the scale and lost it. It's not as easy to lose the weight after baby # 3 and God knows I've been trying. And today it has finally paid off. I've lost.... Not 20.. Not 15... No, not even 10.  I've lost.......5...... … Continue reading Little Victories

No More Excuses

❤ Disclaimer: Pardon my scary no-makeup naked face and hear my heart. ❤  As a mom of 3 little ones under the age of 7, time fills up quickly. My middle child is up before the crack of dawn each day so that takes my morning devotion time most days. My oldest hates school during … Continue reading No More Excuses
