“Travel light” are two words Christ spoke to His disciples before they set out an their assigned journeys. I’ve read these words before yet they never resonated with me until one day they did. Having spent years weighed down with clutter, the unhealthy, undesirable, unnecessary and unwanted, in, on and around me, I was definitely…
When Life Feels Heavy
What do you do when life feels heavy? When your mind is tired, your body exhausted and your heart suffering from unhealed wounds?
A Fresh Start
A fresh start awaits you. And it begins in the most unlikeliest of places.
Diets, a business venture, relationships, setting boundaries and achieving goals are just a few of the many things I’ve failed at. Failure is as much a part of my life as succeeding. You’d think I’d simply stop trying just to avoid failing. And for a while I did. I mean, who wants falling flat on…
Plan don’t Perish
Have you ever felt uninspired, unmotivated or simply stuck? I have. I spent years stuck at an undesirable weight and in unsupportive beliefs, habits, clutter, ruts and destructive addictions. Stuck had become my story. I had plenty of excuses but no plan for permanent change. Back then my life could best be described as feeling…
Have you ever been “ghosted?” You text someone only to hear nothing, get no response or even an emoji acknowledgement of your efforts to communicate. I have. Their reasons for not responding I will never know and I know from experience jumping to conclusions or making assumptions without any facts can be emotionally deadly. So…
The Power of Music
Are you a music lover? I am! From smooth jazz to praise to classic rock and country, I appreciate music. Why? Because it’s powerful, therapeutic, healing and fun. Music can calm raw nerves, soothe a hurting heart and command destructive thoughts to leave. Have you met King Saul? His life is a tragic story of…
Matters of the Heart
Do you have a heart condition? Its contents will tell you if you’re living inspired or infected. Those heart contents become thoughts which decide your words, actions and decisions. In the personal development industry too little attention is given to the heart and its impact on your life. The main focus is generally on your…
On Self Worth
Your SELF WORTH is the determinant for both your view and value of yourself. It’s either decided by external factors or eternal truths. External (ever changing) factors include your current weight, house size, bank balance, social standing, job title, salary or other people’s opinions, feelings, moods, labels and emotions. Some women derive their self worth…
A New Season
When was the last time you stepped out of the familiar, routine or usual? Yesterday, last week or last year? The exceptional life begins with one step. Peter knew this. His next season came only after he stepped out of the boat. When faith and action collide miracles happen. They did then and they do…
Feast or Fast.
Are you ready to FEAST this year? At the beginning of the year my church encourages us to participate in 21 days of Prayer and Fasting event. Each member is to seek Godly guidance in their fasting choice, be it food, sugar, television, social media etc. As each day progressed I began to wonder what…
Boundaries are generally associated with our emotional well being, designed to protect us from the toxic, unhealthy and hurtful. But what if we expanded our use of boundaries, creating and enforcing them around other areas of our lives? For example, instead of creating a budget with our money (which can feel restrictive, stifling and limiting),…
