Are you eating that second sandwich?

“Before you ask for healing, make sure you are willing to give up what made you sick.” @RealTalkKim When I was a freshman in high school, I became obsessed with my weight. All of my friends had a gymnast’s build, and there I was – everything but that. Looking back, I really didn’t look that […]

How to move on when you’re in pain

If I were to ask you to tell me about your most painful memory, I bet you could tell me in a heartbeat. It doesn’t matter if it happened 30 years ago, I imagine you could still give me every detail. I could sit here and share mine, but the truth is — I don’t […]

No words

I recently went with a couple friends to visit someone I’ve known a long time who is in rehab. Although she’s dealing with a lot of physical pain, it was obvious that she was battling a broken heart. Completely shattered. You see, she lost her adult son a few months ago due to a tragic […]

How Do You Know?

I am a mom to 3 sons. Although they are adults now, I can’t help but think back to the days when I would have to tell one of them (or all 3 of them at the same time, which was the WORST!) why they couldn’t go outside without a winter coat on, play one more […]

Don’t Let Your Doubts Cloud Your Vision

Do you ever feel a tug on your heart to do something, and you wonder if it’s coming from the Lord? Days go by, and you realize that the tug has become more like a weight on your heart. You commit it to prayer, and although you don’t think you’ve received that clear-cut answer, you […]

Are you Living in Fear?

“Teach me your way O Lord, and I will walk in your truth.” Psalm 86:1 Have you ever been so afraid, that you couldn’t move? If you haven’t experienced that kind of fear, then it’s probably hard for you to relate when someone you know does. You most likely think they are either overreacting or simply […]

Blue isn’t My Favorite Color Anymore

As I was backing out of my driveway this evening, I attempted to use my backup camera to make sure the way was clear. Unfortunately, the camera was covered with ice,  so my view was pretty distorted.   My dad taught me many years ago that  ‘you can never be too careful!’, so I made sure […]
