I Have You

This morning I sat down with my coffee to do the usual….spend my day in front of a computer screen [because that’s what I do]. But then a little voice in my head [or a bigger one from above] said…why don’t you get outside for awhile today?...

Never Give Up

Sometimes life throws you a curveball. At other times, your GPS seems completely off course.We all have a story. Every story is different. Mine might go something like this… “There was a time that she couldn’t see the light. Too fragile and broken to gather her senses...

A Right for a Better You

Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Some too dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and ways of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness....

Give Without Expecting in Return

Giving and expecting reciprocity is NOT giving, but rather an attitude of mercantile exchange where one offers something and expects something in return (gratitude, praise or respect, etc.)! You will always be disappointed when you demand gratitude and respect. Those...

Ask Him Again

I know, I know, you’ve already asked Him a million times, I see those eyes rolling. But today, ask Him a million and one. Yes. Ask Him AGAIN. Ask Him again for that child to come home. That marriage to be healed. That mountain to move. Ask Him again for that...

Girl Trips

This weekend I took a road trip with a few girlfriends to Cherokee NC. I know most of you are thinking that we hit the casino. Negatory. Believe it or not we made the pilgrimage to a healing revival. (No snakes were involved). None of us knew what to expect. But how...

What’s Meant For You

My life has been a roller coaster the past few years. I’ve spent a lot of time lately reflecting, praying and…waiting. Here’s what I’ve learned the hard way, so listen well ladies of all ages. God’s best won’t be stolen or taken… His best for you won’t...

When Reality Hits

Remember that day when you woke up and looked around and realized your house was a disaster? That there were piles of clutter everywhere, pet hair, stacks of mail and miscellaneous nonsense everywhere you look ? That you’ve moved 3 times in a year and a half....

It Takes Great Courage

It takes great courage to remain silent. It takes great courage not to reply when you’re being antagonized. It takes great courage to have your personal life exposed. It takes great courage to leave those things on your social media for the world to see. It takes...

Happy International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day. Thankful for all the women in my life that get up, show up and get it done every day. You are stronger than you’ll ever know. You got to this point because you chose not to play the victim card. You took responsibility for yourself and...

INFP

A few weeks ago, we were given the Myers Briggs Personality Test at work. I had taken it years ago. My results really haven’t changed much over the years. Fast fact about me that even my closest friends and family don’t know…. I have a Master’s in Clinical Psychology....

The Power of Words

“Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can only be forgiven, not forgotten.” Lashing out, saying things in anger, yelling, name calling, demeaning, putting someone down…all of these things create wounds that are far slower to heal than a physical wound...

I See You

If there’s one thing that I am 100% positive of, it’s that women are AMAZING !!! I have had the pleasure of meeting women from all walks of life. Maybe I just meet the spectacular ones. Or maybe I just see the spectacular in them that no one else sees. Women are...

Love Them Well

Believe in your children, and tell them often that you do. Guide them when they are young. Take time to give them your full attention. When they ask questions, try to look them in the eye and answer to your best ability. Be firm, yet loving. Lead by example. Take time...

Speak Jesus

Todays thoughts come from a very raw place. I just want to speak the name of Jesus over every heart and every mind. ‘Cause I know there is peace within your presence, I speak Jesus. I’m incredibly grateful today that I speak Jesus. I am incredibly grateful that...

Still Writing My Story

I’m so thankful that God writes the story of my life, because He has written it much more beautifully than I ever could have. I know He’s not done with me yet. I’m still a work in progress. I’m still growing and evolving. I’m also still making mistakes and bad choices...

Do The Healing

Today I’m feeling JOYFUL. Joyful to the depths of my soul. I’m joyful because I’ve put the time in to heal. I’m joyful for answered prayers. I’m joyful for peace and clarity. I’m joyful that toxicity has been removed from my life. I’m joyful that delusional negativity...

Thankful

Over the years, November has become my favorite month. Thanksgiving has become my favorite holiday. There’s something so very peaceful about the seasonal change. November is also a great time to say no to negativity, stress, anxiety, toxic relationships and things...

Let’s Us Our Words Wisely

We can use our words for blessings, or we can use or words for cursing. Our tongues, in their natural state, bring forth rotten fruit. Rotten Fruits of the Tongue: Gossip Belittling Cursing Bragging Sarcasm Manipulation Exaggeration Insult Lying Complaining If we are...

Protect Your Peace

Just an important reminder if you’re going to be dealing with someone who enjoys pushing your buttons. Remember, what others say and do does not define you in any way. It is actually just a perception of what they see and feel. So don’t take it personally. It’s not...

Embrace Your Season

What season are you in? While your understanding of the current situation or season may seem slow in coming, and years may pass (sometimes a lifetime) before God gives you a clue or opens your heart and eyes to receive the truth, He will counsel and guide you, and He...

Love Your Tribe

Thoughts for Thursday: Yesterday I was on my way home from work when a dear girlfriend of mine called and asked to meet for an impromptu dinner. These times are so special and much appreciated. Girlfriends are crucial to have in your life. I believe that as we get...

You Are Worthy of Gods Best

God desires us to make wise choices that benefit our well-being and help us remain close to Him. We simply can’t do that if we don’t love ourselves. If we don’t grasp and appreciate our value, we won’t treat ourselves with respect. This may mean we talk negatively...

Be Still

Have you ever been in a season of waiting? My given message this year has consistently been “Be Still.” Blessings usually arrive when God determines that we are completely ready to receive them; heart, mind and soul. If our heart isn’t in the right place, if our...
