The Great Let It Go

English has always come easy for me. I have ALWAYS been a talker. I’m a social person, so to be social, you have to talk, but little did I know that one day, God would call me to sacrifice that gift. No, He didn’t ask me to become a mute. 🤣 HE makes the dumb […]

The Nonsensical Mission

“I’m a high school dropout, and I’m dumb, so if you want me on your team, you’ve got a lot of work to do,”  I prayed. This was my weak-minded prayer in 1994 when God began to deal with me about ministry. I was a preacher’s kid. I grew up in ministry, and I had […]

We made so many wonderful memories here throughout our lifetimes and, of course, there’s nothing like coming home to Mom and Dad’s for Thanksgiving and […]

Penguin Boldness

Last night, while watching National Geographic, which I only do if my dad already has it on the television when I arrive 😂,  I watched an episode with six penguins who stumbled upon a beach filled with sea lion after sea lion. They were literally laying side by side, like Tex-Mex enchiladas on a plate. […]

Hopes and Dreams

What if God called you to do something so outside of your comfort zone you claimed it wasn’t God’s will? What if you even said, “I don’t want to do that”? What if God then gave you over to your own will and allowed you to find your own path? What do you think it […]
