Ten Minutes: Work Hard

“Whatever you’re doing and whatever you’re asked to do work hard.”  Annie F. Downs #100daystobrave This is what my daily reading in my devotional was about.  My daily reading in my bible study was about “farmers don’t quit.”  A time for everything, for every season! I really felt like these two readings were meant for […]

Ten Minutes: Job for Season

At the end of my devotion today it asks: In what ways is the job you have exactly the right one for you in this season? The idea behind the question is that some of us are doing one job as we wait for the career we are dreaming of.  That we have to keep […]

Ten Minutes: Treasure

I am working on a bible study through this Lenten season.  It is my first bible study and I am really enjoying it.  There are a group of 18 of us or so, going through this journey together. Well I plan the posts for the day in our Facebook group.  I try to pull the […]

Ten Minutes: Conversation

As you seek out where your calling could take you, who could you invite into this conversation?  Who do you trust with your dreams and stories that can help you brainstorm? (100 Days to Brave) I had a really hard time sleeping last night.  The last message that I sent was to a friend telling […]

Ten Minutes: Parable of the Sower

The reading today for my bible study was all about the parable of the sower.  Now, if Christianity and the bible isn’t your thing…go with me here anyway, as I believe the idea can be help for anyone. What do you think we can learn from gardeners and farmers –the ones who work the land […]

At the end of my devotion today Annie F. Downs asked the question what is the thesis statement for your life? One might think that it took a little bit of time for me to come up with, but then it hit me.  My thesis statement is my objective on my resume.  I have had […]

Ten Minutes: Listening to God

About 11 years ago, nearly exactly I participated in a 30 hour famine at my church.  It was a mission project to raise money and awareness about our brothers and sisters around the world who aren’t as fortunate as we are.  I was a youth group leader and there were probably about 10 of us, […]

Ten Minutes: Do Not Quit

For lent I started a Bible Study journey with a group of friends.  We are working through “Looking for Lovely” by Annie. F. Downs.  So far it is fantastic.  I also bought the book itself and finished it in less than 3 days. Yesterday was Day 3 of Week 1.  Topic: Do Not Quit.  “I […]

Ten Minutes: Looking for Lovely

Sometime last week I posted on Facebook that I was going to do a bible study for lent.  I asked if any of my friends wanted to join me.  I haven’t ever done a bible study before, but after reflection of what I was going to “give up” for lent, I decided I didn’t want […]
