My heart cries for humanity. I have experienced as a white, Conservative, Christian woman that I am expected to understand the injustice of civil disobedience and defiant crimes against authority. However, all I seem to understand is the intense pain and screams...

Obey the Spirit

I have a testimony to share.

Tonight, God paid me a visit. As usual, I was hanging out with my online friends via social media and having a great time of laughing. I was almost on the floor laughing so hard with my friend in PA. We were being silly and making references to the movie Finding Nemo and at one point I changed my profile picture to a little purple octopus from the movie. You know the one that says "you made me ink" after she was frightened.

How I Know God Sees Me

Posted on August 25, 2014 at 10:50 PM Comments comments (1)

Moments after writing my last post I opened up a devotional titled "Keeping Darkness At Bay" which explained how our good deeds are the power against darkness for the glory of God. (Matt. 5:16) I thought it was perfect reading after I had just written about making it through the storm. This article reminded me how to stay in the light. Thank You Lord.

I then opened another devotional dated August 23 which started off with "Entrust your loved ones to me.". It went on to...

Out of the Darkness

I made it through the storm!

What I learned was that the hardest part to get through was the human emotions aspect. My head knew that God had everything under control but my heart would not listen to reason. My heart screamed out in agony. There was no denying the pain. It really confused me because I usually have more control over how I allow things to affect me. This storm was more than I could control. I had no choice but to surrender and allow the sadness...

Why I Returned to the American Idol Scene Last Night

Posted on July 14, 2014 at 12:55 AM Comments comments (3)

​It is strange how life flows in ways we don't always understand. I just made a big deal about leaving the American Idol scene behind me and moving in the opposite direction towards Jesus and don't you know where I found myself last night? On a fan page for the American Idol tour that was happen...

​ ​

​Before American Idol became a part of my life a few months back, I had a system for working things out. I screened everything through God's Word and applied it to my life. Enter into my life- Caleb Johnson (winner of this year's show) and it became more difficult to filter. Yet I tried and managed to find ...

Some of us have been blessed with a solid starting point and have been allowed the opportunity to grow and develop at a natural pace into the people we ...

A Season of Encouragement- My thoughts on one particular young man

For Josh

(this is not him, but the result of a Google search of sunshine and piano.  I thought is was appropriate.)

You know how refreshing it is to see the sun break through the clouds on a rainy day or how exciting it is to see a rainbow after a storm? Well, I know someone who has that same effect on me.
