Finding Joy in Who I Am

When I am in prayer and reflecting on something, I seek Him first and through seeking Him, I also find myself going back to the wisdom He taught through Sara. Sara was my little sister, but she was also my greatest coach and wisdom leader. In my prayer this morning, I found myself reflecting on the…

Choose Conference

What a blessed week-end! I had the honor and privilege over the weekend to be a disciple to over 80 beautiful women! Speaker, singer and songwriter, Jill Miller and I put on a half-day conference called Choose: Life is about Choices. It was truly an inspiring and blessed event, filled with time for worship, learning,…

Spreading Joy and saying Yes.

Although this year had its challenges, it has also had its many blessings. The blessings these last couple of months have more than made up for the challenges my family and I faced this year. As I wrote in my last post, I enjoyed the opportunity to spread God’s message of Joy with my friend…

31 Days of Be Intentional

Hello friends! How would you like to be part of 31 days of “Be Intentional?” The last couple of years, in honor of my sister Sara, I chose to join the 31-day challenge. The first year I chose the topic of Choose Joy and the second year the topic was Choose Surrender. Since the launch…

Milestones

2 Chronicles 15:7 “But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” Last Friday was a big milestone on this cancer journey. I have finally finished chemotherapy! A journey that has lasted about 6 months. I am so grateful to each of you for your prayers, support, and love…

A Survivor

Tomorrow marks 11th of 12 weekly chemo treatments! I also met with the Radiation Oncologist this week to discuss my radiation treatment. It was decided that I would begin the 33 days of daily radiation the week after I am finished with Chemo. Although radiation will be something I need to do every day, the…

What do you Choose?

I’ve been thinking about the above words from Sara… “When everything is taken away, and nothing is left but the core of who you are, that’s when you have to make a choice to be washed free of everything but the comfort of God who would never let me fall.” I have finished up seven…

Joy…Down in my Heart to Stay!

When you were a young child, I bet many of you, like me, sang the song… “I’ve got that joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart. Down in my heart. Down in my heart. I’ve got that joy, joy, joy, joy, down in my heart. Down in my heart to stay! Down in my…

Why?

Oh, the questions. Not the questions that are easy to answer, but those that we don’t know the answers to…how frustrating they are. Why did this one bee sting take my dad’s life? He was such a good man, why him? Why did my sister Sara have to endure so much pain? She was so…

Faith, Hope and Love

The greatest of these is Love. The forever gifts of the spirit. This verse has been running through my head a lot since my last Chemo treatment, because I have felt so much love from so many of my brothers and sisters in Christ…each of you! The true love that I felt has helped grow…
