A Long Season
Days can be long and difficult, and then the days can turn into long and difficult seasons. We long for change and wonder if these seasons will ever end. We wonder how we will make it through to the end.
Be Someone's One
We all have the opportunity and capability to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Every word we speak or action we take matters.
There is more to this life than pain. There is more than being overwhelmed. There is immeasurable grace, love, joy, hope, peace, and more.
A Change of Heart
Sometimes, our hearts get off track, and they need adjustments. Sometimes, they are broken. Sometimes, they are restless. And sometimes, they are focused on the wrong things. But a change of direction will change everything.
To Love with All My Heart
So many things can happen to cause our hearts to want to act in unloving ways. Giving in to these behaviors and allowing them to become habits is unhealthy for us. But there is a way to overcome these negative patterns and learn to love with all our hearts instead.
A Joyous New Year
New years are not always happy. Life can be very difficult. Yet, there is a way we can still have joy in the midst of the sorrows.
The Difference a Day Makes
No matter what occurs in the course of our day, our day can make a difference.
Gifts of the Season
When we open the eyes of our hearts, we will discover we are surrounded by gifts. This applies during our good seasons and our difficult seasons alike. Come, receive the gifts of this season and every season.
Gratitude vs. Grumblitude
The attitude of the heart affects perspective and what is poured out into the lives of others. And perspective impacts the attitude of the heart. Each day can be filled with gratitude to God or filled with an attitude of grumbling. The choice is ours.
Times are difficult with the way world events are unfolding and also with the holiday season approaching, but we can take heart because there is still hope.
The Persevering Heart
This episode is the third in a three-part series entitled "The Runner." When things are difficult, there is strength available to us. We can press on, doing the hard things in the hard times. Our hearts can persevere through pain and setbacks and rise victoriously over them.
The Weary Heart
This is the second of three episodes in "The Runner" series.
Life can be overwhelming at times and cause us to want to run away to the wilderness. We can become so tired that we feel we cannot continue. But, there is help and rest available which will enable us to stay in the race and keep on running.
The Runner's Heart
Life is full of twists, turns, hills, and valleys, and is sometimes so difficult it makes us want to quit. At these times, we need to dig in deep so that we can finish the race. This is when we need a runner’s heart. This episode is the first of three in “The Runner” series.
Do You Trust God?
Seasons of difficulty raise questions about what we will do and where we will turn for help. I have been asking myself lately if I trust God. Do you trust Him?
A Moment of Weakness
We all experience moments of weakness, and the decisions we make in those moments have consequences. But, help and hope are available at times like these to redirect our steps into a new and beautiful season.
Confronting My Heart
The thoughts of our hearts are not always good. At times, we need to confront them. That is what I have been doing with mine lately.
Sometimes, life gets off track. How did we get to where we are, and how do we get to where we need to be? Regardless of what brought us to this point, a reset is necessary.
A Season of Heartache
Life is difficult right now. How can we keep pressing on when our hearts are aching? Where can we find help, hope, and peace?
A Hope-Filled Future
This episode is part three of a three-part series entitled "A Time to Hope." Our foundation can be hope-filled, our faith can be hope-filled, and our future can be hope-filled, if God is the hope of our foundation, the hope of our faith, and the hope of our future. This is a time to hope.
A Hope-Filled Faith
This episode is part two of a three-part series entitled "A Time to Hope."
A Hope-Filled Foundation
This episode is the first in a three-part series entitled "A Time to Hope."
The Sparrow Keeper
In the storms and falls of life, we are never alone. God is there and cares about every detail.
Where we are heading matters but so does where we are right now. If we are on a path that is not good, we have the opportunity to change the direction of our lives.
In the Name of Peace
Peace may seem hard to come by right now, but it is actually obtainable. Our heavy hearts can know rest.
Whatever the Day Holds
Life can be scary and cause fear and anxiety to ramp up in our lives. We can even become prisoners to them. But sheltering in God will set us free.
Time is quickly passing, and every moment matters. How are you spending your moments?
Hearts That Don't Quit
Help and hope is available in the most difficult of times, even when our hearts are broken and we want to quit.
Faithful faith is real and possible. Move forward with it today.
There in the Midst
Investing in the lives of others is important—in the good times and the bad. And being there at all times produces an invaluable treasure.
What sons need your love? All of them do, whether they are your own children or not.
We have access to help, hope, and power 24 hours a day when we access the ultimate source of power.
The Promise (Part 3 of a 3-part Easter series)
When it comes to God, a promise made is a promise kept. His promises will be fulfilled every time, for all time.
The Purpose (Part 2 of a 3-part Easter series)
How can Good Friday be good? When the reason and the motivation intersect, we find ourselves at the heart of Jesus's purpose.

Names and Numbers
You are significant. You are more than a number. Your name is known.
Life does not always go as planned. Sometimes, we need to reevaluate our direction, and sometimes, even our purpose.
Seasons of life come and go, but sometimes, we get stuck. Discover how to spring forward to new life.
Life is difficult and heartbreaking, yet there is a way we can find rest. You are personally invited to find it.
