Isolated, but not alone

I know this past year has been a struggle for most of us. I know it has for me. A lot of things were shaken and in the shaking there was loss. But I would rather think of it as pruning. Spiritually, there are two choices: Give in and give up or press in and […]

A Runaways Journey to Salvation

I wrote this story for women, young and old, and youth, who have experienced rejection, especially by those who are suppose to love them. Rejection can leave a scar not seen by the human eye, but is felt in the soul. The young girl in this story is longing to belong, to be loved and […]

God and Mercurochrome

I was a tomboy when I was young. I was always outside riding my big wheel or bike, playing baseball, freeze-tag; anything that involved being outside and running. There was a neighbor boy, Johnny, and we would ride bikes together. I forgot to mention I have a bit of a competitive streak, so naturally when […]

No More Self Loathing

We know God forgives us, because He says if we repent, He forgives us of our sins. We even forgive others (with His help). Yet… We struggle to forgive ourselves. Living in regret and shame keeps us in bondage. This is not God’s will for us. We start getting ahead and then that ol’ lying […]

If I could change One Thing…

If you could go back in time and change one thing, have one do-over, what would it be? Have you ever wondered? I had several answers when I first thought about this question. My mind quickly recalled times when I said yes when I should have said no, or said no when I should have […]

Ultimate Makeover

The question we all ask ourselves, huh. Who am I? For many, the answer to this question changes depending on the season.  Sadly too many base the answer on emotions, experiences, or what others have said about us; as if someones opinions define us. Times and seasons change. Society is a fickle people. With the […]
