I am the driven first-born child of two driven first-born children which has taught me to be self-motivated, eager to learn, a natural leader, and this all quickly turns into pride in my heart if I am not cautious. Although God has given me seasons and spaces where He has asked me to lead, most recently He has reminded me of a gift I possess … Continue reading Our Gifts for His Glory
When I was 12 years old I travelled outside the US for the first time with a group of missionaries to Mexico. It was also my first time studying these verses in 1 Corinthians 12, “For as the body is one and has many parts, and all the parts of that body, though many, are one body—so also is Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit … Continue reading Finding Our Place in the Body of Christ
It’s a Southern mama’s dream to watch her baby boy run onto the field and take the position of quarterback. Commanding the game, he quickly gestures to reposition players, reads the defensive formation, grunts plays in a voice I’ve never heard before, and steps back to deliver a spiraling 40-yard bullet into the arms of a moving target.

Trusting in God when you don’t know what to do. When I am faced with difficult life situations, being a Christian and knowing I have a relationship with Jesus is always a comforting reassurance .

Of course, a marriage does not end overnight and of course, each one … Continue reading Where is He?
These words remind me of my 2 older kids. “why me? I just did it yesterday, or why me? why don’t you ask him/her?” and only us as parents know the answer to that question. Whether there was a lesson through the task that you want him or her to learn through experience, the task is meant for him or her because we as a … Continue reading Why Me…?
If you asked me to make a list of things I’m tempted to worry about or stress over, I could make a list a mile long. If you’ve ever self-identified as a control-freak, I’m right there with you. If you’ve ever woken up in the middle of the night struck with fear or anxiety, you’re not alone. If all of this sounds familiar, this is … Continue reading What If?

I absolutely love music! Since I was young I have been intrigued by the tempos, rhythms, and sounds of music…anything from Mozart to Michael Jackson. From era to era, culture to culture it’s amazing that music has marked time, events, and emotions for the people of history. We even classify parts of history by the music that was written and performed. There is something about … Continue reading Soul Selah
It is my honour once again to contribute to For All the King’s Daughters. I continue to be amazed at how God moves in our lives, and orchestrates all things according to His will. When I was asked to write on having ‘lung power’, on experiencing the Holy Spirit’s breath in our daily walk with God, I was stupefied. Why? Because at the exact time … Continue reading Lung Power
