Learning More About Love

Feb 24, 2021

Love…the Lord has been expanding my learning around love.  I want to always be loving towards others, but know that I fall short of that often, either by accident and unawareness, or because I am weary in the moment.  Loving God and Loving Others is a theme throughout the New Testament that I have studied…

Take Courage

Feb 8, 2021

Courage. What does this word evoke in you? Courage is something that can be exciting, inspirational on the brave “edge” of the blade. But it can also be something just out of reach, something that is desperately craved in a moment of uncertainty, a moment of need. Many have written, spoken, and described COURAGE in…

Who are you listening to?

Feb 1, 2021

Who’s voice are you listening to?  Like many, I purpose each new year to settle into fresh habits.  I exercise more, eat cleaner, and focus on getting enough sleep. One of my favorite things is to begin again in reading the Bible through in a year.  (I almost made it last year and only had…

Waiting Part 3

  Whew…I come to this part 3 of this mini-blog series with relief that I can share what God has been giving me through this Scripture reference for a couple of years now. And as I do, obediently, I am learning MORE of what He is trying to communicate to me personally. He is such…

Waiting Part 2

Apr 24, 2020

  So…how are you doing in this Waiting? What was different after you learned about the meaning of that Hebrew word, qavah?  For me, I have spent much more time in God’s Word, as well as much more time in prayer dialogue with Him.  This active waiting feels different than how I always thought waiting…

Waiting Part 1

Apr 19, 2020

  Waiting…as you think about that word, what do you notice? What does it mean to you to “wait”? Is 40:31 Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary. A…

Blueprint for Life – Obedience

Oct 12, 2019

  Where do we find that “blueprint for life?”  Wouldn’t it be great to be able to order it online, or to download it onto an app and have the path clearly defined?  What if we are looking for directions and clarity in the wrong spot?  What if we truly CAN have a blueprint for…

Significant Season of Change: Empty Nesting

Sep 4, 2018

Change….One thing in life that is constant, right? We hear that all the time…but do we really embrace change for all it’s worth in our lives? I am in a significant season of change, and I am looking at it through the lens of a coach this time. Having so many options in front of…

Renewing My Mind

Jul 3, 2018

Death Anniversaries are hard… there is no way around that. There’s not a way to predict if “this year will be harder, or easier” or even what the scale would look like if there was one to begin with. Grief is a unique emotion and plays with the other emotions we go through and are…

Welcome to my blog!

I have begun this blog to have a place to share some of the things God has shown me throughout my life. This is a small space for reflection and awareness that this isn’t all there is, and that our lives are not just random happenstance.  There is purpose, and reasons, if we pause long enough to look, rest and reflect.  I hope that as I continue to share with you in this blog that you will begin to see the Grand Design in your own life more clearly.
