Work with What You Have!

January 1, 2018

It’s the New Year and you probably have taken the time to set some new goals for yourself. That’s great! But what happens when the year starts to go by and you still haven’t accomplished your goal(s)? What happens when you see everyone else around you doing the things that you desire to do and everything seems to happen so easy for them? Are you going to give up? At that point, it may seem tempting to come up with…

Plan on Making a Big Faith Move? READ THIS.

October 30, 2017

In October of 2014, my husband and I packed up our things from Tallahassee, Florida, and we moved to the great city of Atlanta. We were confident that the Lord led us here and we were excited to “step out in faith”. I had all these expectations but I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. The glamorized “faith move” seemed to give me the gratification of feeling super-spiritual. Then, the real tests came when all the pomp and…

Are You Listening to God’s Voice?

October 20, 2017

For years, some of you have been asking, pleading, and searching for the voice of God. You did all that you could to draw near to Him. You followed the steps that this preacher and that preacher recommended. You read your bible, made sure you had quiet time early in the morning, cut off unhealthy relationships and more! When you first began hearing God speak, you were so excited. You couldn’t get enough of hearing His voice and would not…

My Wedding Story!!

April 4, 2017

Many girls grow up dreaming of their perfect wedding fairytale. We are taught to desire the perfect dress, flower arrangements, and decor. We envision the moment where we walk down the isle with all eyes on us. Our groom is foooineeee, 6 foot, with everything marked off our list of what we want in a man. The thing is, although there is nothing wrong with having your wedding turn out the exact way you dream, this is not the reality for…

February 9, 2017

Hey Everyone! I have some exciting news to share!!! Since 2015 it’s been my dream to have a National Book Tour but 2016 went by and it still didn’t happen. Then at the end of 2016, I got the vision of “The Writers Retreat” and I shut down my other business to pour into this new baby. The Writers Retreat is a 3-4 day event where christian writers of all genres can come together to relax, unplug, get inspired and…

Your Favorite Preacher Can’t Save You!

December 24, 2016

Hear me out. At one point in my life, I attributed my salvation as credit to my favorite preacher. When someone would ask to hear my testimony… you would hear the name of my favorite preacher, more than you heard the name of Jesus. Phrases like, “I was inspired by ‘so and so’…” or “Hearing so and so’s story, changed my life…” showed the idolatry that was deeply rooted in my heart. Don’t get me wrong, it’s OK to appreciate the…

How to Know When You’re Ready to Walk in Your Calling

September 5, 2016

“But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.” – Jeremiah 1:7 This was me. “God I’m not ready,” “God I’m too young,” “God I’m not experienced,” “God I need a mentor,” “God I don’t have the money,” “I need to read more books,” “God, I’m scared!” I gave God every excuse in the book as to why I wasn’t qualified…

Why HER Success Won’t Diminish Yours!

August 30, 2016

Sister, your willingness or unwillingness to help other believers succeed says a lot about your faith in God or lack thereof. Be honest with yourself… do you cringe when your sister in Christ gets the promotion you wanted, engaged, pregnant, launches a new product, etc.? Or are you truly and genuinely happy for them without any ounce of resentment or jealousy? The world teaches us to guard our “success” and not to share it with anyone… hide our failures and pretend…

The Truth about Worrying

February 21, 2014

Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the things of the world and allow worrisome thoughts to invade our minds. Many times I’ve felt like I’ve missed the mark. I feared not having enough strength to accomplish my worldly goals and I had absolutely no peace. I had to realize that God does not intend or desire for me to live a life of worry. As a child of the King, who has been made righteous through Christ, God…

The Top 5 Worst Things to Do During Worship!

December 20, 2013

1. Going to Sleep This is by far one of the things I struggle with the most concerning worship and my quiet time. Staying awake is not easy for me because I spend time with God first thing in the morning, after helping my husband off to work. That works out to be around 6:15 – 6:30 a.m. every day. Which I believe is MAD early, but I know that God is calling me to be disciplined and do it…

Coveting Someone Else’s Relationship with God

August 20, 2012

It’s so easy for us to judge someone from the outside. It’s so easy to say, “she’s so holy” or he’s so this and he’s so that. It’s so easy to get caught up on what everyone else is doing and fail to take time to step back and focus on the things that we’re struggling with when it comes to our walk with God. We spend so much time judging one another and looking at what everyone else is…

True Worship & Getting Closer to God

July 19, 2012

True worship is a lifestyle, not an experience. Sometimes when we think of “worship” a lot of us worry and obsess about having the right songs, atmosphere, etc. But what about having the right life? A righteous life, that is, one that glorifies God in every way. Regarding our righteousness, the bible says that: “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” (2 Cor.…
