Conspiracy Theories, the Facts and Your Soul

COVID-19. I wonder what this will look like when it becomes a paragraph in a history book or a reflection in biomedical studies. Even if we do not follow mainstream media’s lead, we still attach our own version of meaning to what’s going on in our world right now.

A Plight of Stairs

I have an odd habit of counting as I walk up stairs. I’m not counting each stair, I’m not counting time, I’m just counting. Can’t tell you why, I just do, so don’t worry if you hear whispers as I climb stairs. I may be a little weird but I am okay… When I take […]

Fear Distorts Perception

Last night, our pastor’s wife said that God gives us something specific to do in every season. I’ve come to realize the season I am. It’s not marked by a solstice, the weather or the color of the leaves, rather the emotion that I need to confront. Which is, per the title, fear. Fear may […]

Hanging on to Fiery Debates

I love the saying, “God’s Word never changes, the culture changes.” There is nothing missed in the Bible and there is wisdom for every situation. Even if the culture is different, God’s Living Word still applies.

Just say…no?

Monday is for motivation, or moxie, the new word I found and enjoy, because it is the first day of the week.

It ranges from spiritual messages to folk stories to psychology to music analysis. I like it all, but I’ve listened to a […]

Stuck in Regret

In case you haven’t noticed by now, I tend to be stuck in the past at times. It’s difficult accepting failure. Right? Falling down doesn’t feel good. Some times it’s a soft fall that you can laugh about, I actually enjoy those. But those falls that feel like miles down a rocky mountainside? Those leave […]

Slowly but surely

So, one thing I’ve really learned to prioritize throughout this pregnancy is myself! I realized how much I gave away to activities, events, people, habits, etc. that were not building me. I’ve always preferred my alone time but the reality that I will be forever responsible of a little life has taught me that I […]

Standing Firm

Today’s message at church was prompted by an interesting question, “Why do some Christ-followers seem to struggle internally more than others?” It’s a question I’ve often wondered myself because my transformation was so radical. I want to see radical transformations in the hearts of all my friends and family, I want to see them experience […]

Setting Boundaries: the Self

You cannot expect other people to treat you how you want to be treated if you are not treating yourself how you want to be treated. That’s why boundaries begin with the self. We have to give ourselves space and time, especially prayer with God, to learn about the limits of things we can and cannot accept.
