The temperature outside has dropped. Indoor activities are in full effect. Warm and cozy blankets have been removed from our closets.  It’s cuffing season! Everyone is looking for someone to tie down and spend the cooler months with indoors. This is the time that we often get to visit with family and old friends, and the age-old question, “Are you still single?” resurfaces. This question is coupled with the opportunity to scrutinize our lack of...

If we were to view marriage as a house or something to be built, then it stands to reason that, at times, repairs will have to be made…which require the use of tools. In this article, I want to present to you one tool in the marriage building toolbox that I believe is extremely important but seldom is used. In 2015, I did a book launch for my first book “Got Fruit.” That launch was...

The journey to wholeness is not for the faint of heart! Just as the great poet Langston Hughes penned, let me tell you, “Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair…” BUT, I never would’ve gone as far to say it had all those issues of tacks, splinters, and such going on. I knew my life wasn’t perfect or easy, but in my eyes, it was far from being labeled “hard knock.” Needless to say,...

WARNING…words of brutal honesty will follow this disclaimer. If you’re one of those people that refuses to confront the difficulties of choosing a life of faith in Jesus, this article probably isn’t for you.  If you’re someone who believes that choosing the life of a Christian is all John 10:10 abundance, without confusion and hard pressing strikes mentioned in 2 Corinthians chapter 4…brace yourself, please, because the truth is…challenges are coming. BUT… That isn’t the...

“Most people don’t wait long enough on me.” –God Wow! How accurate is that sentence? We’ll admit it; A lot of us here are impatient. We hate long lines, we dread traffic, we get frustrated when God says “no,” but we really feel pained when he says “not yet!” For some reason, hearing “not yet” hurts more than hearing “no.” We think it’s because, when God says “not yet,” we know the good thing is coming,...

When everything around us seems like it’s spiraling out of control … … people often remind us of the Bible passage in which Jesus is sleeping in the storm as his disciples were, for lack of a better phrase, freaking out. We know we need to focus on something during hard times, but Jesus getting some rest while things are seemingly falling apart is normally not helpful. What should catch our attention is why Jesus is...

“For God sent me before you to preserve life.” Genesis 45:5b At times, it may be difficult to accept and trust that God is weaving a plan for your life to prosper you and bring you to an expectant end. When we get to the nuts and bolts of it, most of our difficulty comes from our lack of understanding and acceptance of God’s ways. Isaiah 61:3 tells us “He will give a crown of...

As millennials, it’s easy to get wrapped up in a mindset that says you must be making moves (with digital proof or it never happened) or you aren’t doing anything with your life. Culture has implemented an unwritten rule: That we must “have a life,” primarily in our single season, and the way by which to have a life is to live according to the world. If we went by all the suggestions thrown at...

Performance. The word alone elicits feelings of pressure. Tears flow, frustrations surface, comparison gnaws, and self-pity rises when we feel like our performance has fallen short of an expectation. We are raised with a performance-based mindset that conveys the message that “you get out what you put in.” Therein, we train ourselves to believe that the burden of success falls on our efforts. “If I study diligently, then I’ll do well on the test.” “If I...

It was one of the most magnificent waterfalls in the world, and he was about to bungee jump. The only thing keeping him from plunging into the rushing waters of the Zambezi was a single cord tied around his ankles. His pounding heart seemed to drown out the mighty waterfall as he heard the instructor behind him shout: “1, 2, 3.. bungee!” He jumped. Within seconds, it felt like he was flying. When God calls...
