Living the Life of Christianity

Hello Kingdom Woman! If you have accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior (today or for a while now), that is exactly who you are. Amen! So, believe it and own it. Next, after salvation, is the Living the Life of Christianity part. And that’s what I’m going to be talking about in this week’s post. Let me start off by saying that this will NOT be a legalistic approach, instead a biblical one. Thank God I’ve learned and know the [...]

Conquering Complaining

Yes! I am so glad that you clicked onto this link! If you are here right now, then you, I, and GOD (for that fact) all know that you want to be delivered and set free from this negative emotion. And that is a GREAT thing! So, let’s talk about conquering a complaining attitude. The best way to start is with the Word of God. It has been my lifeline for life-change, and it will do the same for you if you apply [...]

Speaking the Word

Last week, I talked about studying the Bible. This week, we're going a little further. I believe all of us need to be reminded of this one. Unfortunately, we can get so caught up in our daily to-do-lists that we forget when a pop quiz, test, or trial comes our way, we have to be ready to conquer it! However, if we’re not trained by having our reservoir of Scriptures at hand, then it will be pretty hard to win. So that’s [...]

How to Study the Bible

When I put out a mini request for what topics my reading audience would like me to write about, I received a good bit of responses. This particular topic was the largest response! And I am not surprised. I’m actually super elated about this - and I know God is even more than me! Now, if you didn’t submit your topic, it’s okay, because I think this topic can help everyone across the board, including me. So in this fresh post, [...]

Your Thoughts This Week

For starters, I actually want to know your thoughts this week on topics that you would like to learn more about. I’m going to be working on fresh new blog posts for you, and I want to hear from my readers on what you actually need. I’ll give you a few topics to start with, but I’d also like to know your thoughts as well. Here are a few sample topics… 1.) Conquering Complaining 2.) How to Know Your Calling 3.) [...]

The Thing About Perfectionism

After reading the title, would you say that you’re a perfectionist or do you know someone who has signs of being one? If you are a perfectionist, what are some areas in your life where you feel things need to be just right? Is it being the perfect wife, mother, or friend? How about being the perfect employee, boss, or leader? Do you feel like your gifts and talents need to flow perfectly when you minister or perform? Let’s talk about [...]

How to Adjust the Attitude QUICKLY

Okay, this is going to be a crash course - through one post. So get ready, because my hope and prayer is that by the end of reading this, you will know exactly what to do when you need a quick attitude adjustment. Print this one out (for now and later reference), grab a highlighter, and be sure to purchase a pack of index cards for the Scriptures that you’re going to need to chew on, memorize, and apply when you [...]

Knowing and Fulfilling God’s Will

I want to ask you a heart-to-heart question. Are you about the Father's business today? Or, are you busy doing what you want to do vs. what God has called you to do? Think about that for a moment. The reason why I’m asking these questions, is because sometimes we can get so caught up in doing a “good” thing that we neglect to be doing a “God” thing? What I mean by this is, “Are you truly doing the will of [...]

Getting Too Busy for Your Kids?

I would go on record to say that I believe that we are the busiest generation of parents that this world has ever experienced! My goodness! Just about everyone in this time and generation is BUSY! Are you busy? If you’re a mother, do you think that you might be getting too busy for your kids? I’ll tell you, it’s like being busy is the new “in” thing! Let me say here that there is absolutely nothing wrong with being busy doing what [...]

When, If, and How to Confront Someone

Hands down, confrontation is not easy. I think I could vouch for many when I say, "No one really likes confrontation." Mainly, because it's awkward. Other reasons I believe are because we don't quite know how the other person will respond. Yet, that's when we have to pray and decide when, if, and how we need to confront someone. Again, one reason why I think we don’t jump at the opportunity with great excitement or determination to confront someone is because we [...]
