I am repenting


I am repenting against my previous attacks towards New Year's Resolutions. And of making fun of people who make them but can't make it past January 17. The irony is I am extremely goal oriented. But more of a broad sweeping 30,000 feet LeT's ChaNge The WOrld aNd DREam A Lot AnD DOn't HoLd Me … Continue reading I am repenting

Why I Won’t Be Saying A Certain Phrase Anymore: Becoming The Leader I Already Am


My son told me he had to write a short paper on a great leader. He told me he wanted to write about me but he wasn't sure what kind of great leader I was. I could relate.

Isaiah 54:15 - If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing; whoever attacks you will surrender to you. However, within minutes … Continue reading Hit In The Teeth

Why yes, I am setting goals for 2012 before April. (weird, right?)


I see everybody is grabbing a word or a claiming a scripture for the New Year. I normally wait until about April to start setting goals and resolutions. But honestly, this year that never happened and I feel like I've been swirling out of control all year. God still managed to hold me together and … Continue reading Why yes, I am setting goals for 2012 before April. (weird, right?)
