“Because we’re designed in God’s image, we’re happiest and most fulfilled when we’re serving and giving.” -Dave Ramsey

Even if you feel like your inner light is barely flickering today, let it shine. It will attract the light of others, and you will have the pleasure of watching it grow into a force more powerful than you could have ever imagined or accomplished on your own.

God seems to be working very hard to prove to me the old adage, “When the student is ready the teacher will appear.”

The more the enemy beats me up by planting thoughts of inadequacy in my mind, the more I realize I must be doing something right. If I wasn’t so important to God, I wouldn’t be so important to the devil.

In Matthew 16:23, Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you ... 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

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
