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 [...]

Run from Flattery

In this post, I have a quick test that I’d love for you to take! It’s on flattery. It should only take less than 60 seconds. But in the meantime, let me ask you this question. Did you know that flattery is a sin? YES! It is - so run from it like a plague! And what I mean by that is, run from doing it. In all actuality, it doesn’t really help the receiver or hearer, because if you’re honest, it doesn’t come [...]

Studying A Book of the Bible

  In this busy life that many of us are living these days, we have to make time to get into God’s Word. I know that we have to get the kids off to school and extracurricular activities, clean the house, wash clothes, cook dinner, take care of the hubby’s needs (if you’re married), and do the work that needs to be done, whether that’s a day job or ministry. But again, we have to make the intentional effort to get into the Word of [...]

10 Tips On Taking Care of Yourself

I’d like to start this post by asking, “When was the last time that you took time out for yourself?” Because no doubt, most of us lead very busy lives. We’re busy taking care of the house (or apartment), cooking, planning, studying, working, taking care of the hubby and/or kiddos, and so much more, right?! Yet, where is the time for you? I mean, just about everyone is busy, including me. I get it, totally. BUT…I know how to slow down and take a bite [...]

When People Are Cold to You

Have you ever encountered a person who was just plain rude, mean, cold, or distant towards you and you didn’t quite know why? If so, how did you handle that type of behavior? Are you dealing with it now? If it's happened to you, know that you are totally not alone, sister! The Bible tells us in 1 Peter 5:9, “Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are.” That’s right! Suffering – [...]

Preparing For a Trial

What a way to title a post, right? I mean, who wants to prepare to go through hardships in life? Who wants to deal with that? I get it, sis. Nobody does – including me. But the truth is…we will go through trials in this life. We were never promised a flowerbed of ease on this earth. Instead, Jesus prepared us in advance (before He ascended into heaven) in John 16:33 saying, “…Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, [...]

Steps Toward Your Purpose

I was recently a part of a women’s conference (She Will Conference), and one of my fellow sisters in Christ spoke on a lot of “P” words. It was truly awesome! And I say that to say, that even though this was not intended, I can’t help but have a bunch of “P” words coming out of me as I prepare to write this week’s blog post! LOL! So as you read this write-up, I can’t help but talk about the process of prayer, patience, [...]
