Oh so tired…

Fatigue. Just look at that word. It looks like  fat with tiredness. A quick glance at the dictionary tells me that fatigue is: 1. extreme weariness from prolonged exertion or stress 2. To make or become exhausted. Most of us, as women, are familiar with being tired. Tired of...

Remembering…

As usual, Friday morning usually brings a weekend random blog. Mostly because I am usually heading out to speak or otherwise occupied getting ready for something pertaining to the weekend. Today I am preparing my heart for the Design4Living Conference. And, as I reflect on the...

A friend for the wounded heart

Today I am borrowing words from Max Lucado. Today’s Truth: Hebrews 10:35 “Do not lose the courage you had in the past, which has a great reward.” Is there anything more frail than a bruised reed? Look at the bruised reed at the water’s edge. A once slender...

What if God really DOES restores lives?

I am blessed to be the proud mother of a new baby… No, not a real baby…a book baby. This new book baby has been named, A Different Kind of Wild, but I just call it Wild for short. Wild stands for Women In Life-Long Development and is encouraging women to embrace the...

The Power Connection

Each day we plug something in...a hair dryer, flat iron, curling iron, coffee maker ( though when it comes to coffee, I would prefer an IV drip!). We all know about plugging in. When I speak at retreats I often use my own hair dryer as a visual illustration. It’s made by...

God Uses the Weak and Broken to Display His Power

Broken things are not celebrated in our society. They are fixed or thrown away. Usually tossing for a new model is what happens…it’s much easier. I am glad that God is not like that. He not only fixes the broken areas of our hearts and lives, but He redeems anything...
