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?

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, [...]

The Influence of a Godly Woman

Have you ever thought about how important you are to those around you as a Christian woman? Because you are! God chose you, adopted you into the faith, and created you to be His child – His precious daughter. He also created and called you to be a beacon of light to a dying world for Him and to be a godly influence to those He has entrusted to you in your lifespan. In a nutshell, you were created on purpose and for a purpose. [...]

Working Together in the Body of Christ

I want to start this post by asking you a question. Do you know your place in the body of Christ? Meaning, where you’re called to serve? If your answer is no, then I urge you to pray and ask God to show you where to serve, who to serve, and how to serve well. And if you know your place, then I’ll ask you this. Are you flowing in it or are you stagnated? These are essential questions for today’s time, because Jesus is [...]

How to Handle Your Struggles

If you’re going through a tough time at this moment in your life, I pray that this post truly ministers to you and encourages you. I want to start by reassuring you that, “God is here.” Remember, His Word promises that He will never leave you, nor forsake you. So that means that He is with you in the struggle. The reality of life (even for us as Christian women) is that hard times hit our lives. Think about it for a second. One day [...]
