Category: Be You

In my experience, the surest way to get a blessing is to be a blessing.

Deuteronomy 28:1-6 says, “If you listen obediently to the Voice of God, your God, and heartily obey all his commandments that I command you today,God, your God, will place you on high, high above all the nations of the world. All these blessings will come down ... Read More


One of my favorite lines is “She knew she could, so she did.” I wear that saying on a charm around my neck to remind me to do what I can, when I can, to add light to our world. What could you do, what could you give TODAY if you weren’t afraid of TOMORROW?

Proverbs 3:28 (NIV) says “Do not ... Read More


“It’s okay for people to reject you, but it’s not okay for you to reject yourself.” – Brilliant advice from my friend, Chris Linnares. God made you and He loves you. Don’t insult Him by insulting His most wonderful creation- YOU!

Genesis 1:27 says, “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male ... Read More


You don’t need lots of words to show kindness. You only need two: I’m here.

Romans 12:15 says, “Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep.”


I think what people want most from us is what we’re most afraid to give: They want our truth.

In John 8:31-32, Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”


As I reflect on my life thus far, I can’t help but think, “I’ll be darned! God really did have a plan!” The whole enormity of it honestly brings tears to my eyes…
Jeremiah 29:11 says “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give ... Read More


Take the time to stand in awe of something today. And to read Genesis 1:21.

“So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms in the water, and every sort of bird—each producing offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good.”


There is no finite amount of success in the world. Showing kindness to your competition may even earn you an ally as you search for your piece of the pie.

Proverbs 27:17 says “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.”


Sometimes I can see the hand of God working so clearly in my life, and other times the picture is kind of blurry. I choose to trust Him regardless of my vision. Hebrews 10:35-36.


Whatever is waiting to greet you this week, remember you don’t have to meet it alone. Take comfort in Psalm 91:11.
