  When the Covid pandemic first shut down the world in March 2020, I was having a personal high. I was in great physical shape. I was running everyday. I felt like I was living my life purpose. I felt so connected to my spirit and to God. I had amazing habits in place that […]

Allowing God to Hold Space for Us

The times I hold space well, is usually directly linked to how much I have allowed God to hold space for me. I used to pray by saying words.  I’d list things i was thankful for, ask for what I needed and be done.  I’ve probably said years worth of prayers filled with anxiety and […]

My life changing affirmation

“I am seen. I am okay being seen.” This was not how I felt.  My calling was to stand up in front of hundreds of people every week and lead everyone in singing the hymns.  Not a big deal, unless you have this belief that you need to completely hide from the world.  I hated […]

But the Lord is inviting us to avoid human suffering by doing the exact opposite and allowing ourselves to feel. Let us taste the bitter so we can know to prize the good. […]

Unity is Possible!

We just need Jesus to come again. We just need Him to come and fix it.Imagine my surprise when I listened to podcast in which the speaker took this same statement and said, “If you think Jesus is going to come again and fix it you’re wrong! We have to build Zion first, and then […]

Winners Know They Will Finish First

I was recently listening to an interview with Lanny Basham, the 1976 Olympic Gold Medalist in Sports Shooting.  Lanny had trained hard to go to the Olympics in  1972, by putting in lots of action. He trained for 5-8 hours a day and most certainly the training paid off in going to the Olympics, but […]

God loves to help us turn things around

He loves to see us use our creative power to turn, especially to see us turn our hearts. Is it any wonder that he uses this invitation of turning many times in the scriptures? The word turn is used nearly 700 times in scripture! We are invited to, Turn away from wickedness Turn towards God […]
