Happy New Year #Thisis38

The quote that I received for the day was “Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.”  What a wonderful idea to start 2019 with. This year I will be Intentional.  I will go back to intentionally taking care of myself, therefore being able to take care of my husband, my kids and the life […]

Ten Minutes: Letting Go

First of all, last night, right before I went to bed I prayed to God that he would give me a sign that letting go is the right thing. In my head it is and every time I think about it, I know it would be so good, but something in me just isn’t quite […]

Ten Minutes: Hold On

“You and I just have to be brave enough to hold on, even when our struggles feel like more than our hands can handle.”  Annie F. Downs “Don’t give up on life.  Don’t give up on God. Don’t give up on yourself.  Hold on to hope, love.”  Annie F. Downs I am going to keep […]

Ten Minutes: Grace in the Waiting

For months I have been thinking on something.  Patiently praying and living while I wait.  Trusting in God that he has a plan.  That he is going to let me know exactly when and how it is meant to happen. Another another note, sometime around Thanksgiving I started seriously thinking about getting a second dog.  […]

Ten Minutes: Job for Season

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 […]

Multiple Expressions: #100daystobrave

The question at the end of today’s devotion: Is God revealing some different ways you might express your calling?   Answer: YES

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 […]
