Confront The Giant I try very hard not to write random blogposts. I like to wait for Holy Spirit to deliver the message or the title or something HE wants me to write. So, this week I was listening to Joyce Meyer on a quick IGTV video and she said something like, “David didn’t stand… [Read More]
We Are Anchors
Remove the Mask I read a beautiful post this morning on a friend’s blog; a post from a woman who suffered a great depression due to many life-changes within a one-year period.

I see beautiful faces of sons, brothers, fathers, husbands, boyfriends, uncles, cousins, nephews. And, each one reflects that one word Holy Spirit whispered to me many years… [Read More]
There’s been a lot of talk about being brave. In fact, Annie Downs just released a book called Let’s All Be Brave: Living Life With Everything You Have. This past week I was at my daughter’s – she had surgery on the 19th and I was blessed to be able to go and run the household… [Read More]
