Contending for the Extra Oil…

These last few months have been different. Covid-19 has been an unearthing for everyone. Schedules have shifted, calendars wiped clean, financial uncertainty, job instability, widespread sickness, fear of the unknown and church services closed! There has never been a time in history we have walked where we are walking today. The greatest leaders are struggling [...]

COVID-19 VS GSPL-20

This morning I was reading in Luke 9 about how Jesus sent out the 12 Disciples. It felt so foreign to read that they were anointed with power and authority to cast out unclean spirits and heal every kind of disease and every kind of sickness. It made me wonder that if we were living [...]

HOW we love shows WHO we love…

Recently, I met with someone whom I was counseling with on the difficulty of 'Hard Love’. You know, the kind of love that your heart knows you’re to engage in, but your flesh fights it with all resilience. It’s that kind of love that only Jesus talks about. The kind of love that makes you [...]

Living ‘Unoffendable’

We live in a culture now that whatever you do it seems as though everyone is easily offended. One wrong interpretation of a statement can mean a social media blast or even worse, a stain on the intent of your character. I am amazed at the things people get offended at. Vaccinating or not vaccinating, [...]

In the Waiting…

Today, I sit in Kaposvár, Hungary. 26 years ago, on this day, I sat in this same country on my 16th birthday. It was the most defining year of my life. I learned 3 Truths that summer that has shaped my obedience since... 1. I could really trust God; 2. God was and is really [...]

Beyond The Noise…

While in my car driving this week I was having a conversation with my mom that struck my heart. She was sharing with me regarding some big decisions she was about to make and made a statement that took me back a few weeks ago when I sat in the Amazon Jungle. She said, “I [...]

Broken wholeness…

Just recently, I returned from a mission trip working with Syrian Refugees. It was such a unique experience. God was faithful in bringing together a team of College Students, Therapists, and Medical Professionals to go and serve the emotional, spiritual, and physical needs of the ‘Least of These.’ What I discovered on the trip, though, [...]

Maybe It’s Time….

This past year and a half I have been intentionally exercising 5 days a week trying to get my body in shape. Now, what shape is debatable? With all joking aside, I have tried diligently to live healthier and build my endurance level. I decided to go to the ‘next level’ in my exercising routine [...]

His Presence…

As I pray over 2019 I asked God to give me a word for His desire for my life, my ministry, my family and my purpose this next year.   As I sat and listened in prayer I heard the word, ‘PRESENCE.’ Not in an audible voice, but in a moment of quiet reflection of listening. [...]

Will You Step Out….

This past weekend I had the privilege to be part of a Global Missions Conference hosted by Awe Star Missions. The theme for the weekend was, “Step Out Of Your Element.”  The weekend was intense! Multiple Main Sessions and Break Out Speakers shared how God urged each person to step out in suffering, trial, risk, [...]

Be Still…

I never know how I get to this place? I envision my days different. I’m a dreamer. Since I was young I have carved out memories of imagining incredible Gospel adventures in jungles, safaris, and restricted access nations. I am a lover of innovation and thrive in newness and change. But lately, when I reflect [...]

I Prayed TOO Small…

I’ll never forget that day.... I had a team of students in West Africa. We were doing Mobile Medical Clinics by day and Chronological Bible Storytelling Ministry by night. We decided to go to a local beach for some intentional team prayer and worship. We envisioned looking out over the ocean and reclaiming, Habakkuk 2:14: [...]

What Is In Your Hand?

This summer I had the opportunity to serve in The Gambia, Africa for 28 days through Awe Star Ministries. My husband and I led a team of medical professionals, college, and high school students in a combined trip of Medical Missions and Chronological Bible Storytelling. The first 10 days upon arriving in country we went [...]

Stillness In The Storm…

Have you ever been driving through a storm?  The sky looks clean, clear, and blue, then suddenly everything grows dark?! You begin to hear the whistle of the wind, rain begins thrashing on your windshield and thunderous lightening rolls across the skies.... In some storms there is always 'a moment' that is the eeriest. The [...]

The #MomHood…

This weekend we will celebrate the joys of ‘Motherhood.’  Flowers will be bought, cards will be given, and gifts will be received. Today, though, I would like to talk to you about the ‘other’ side of being a mom.  First,  let me say, I LOVE being a mom. I love the snuggles, the kisses, the [...]

#WonderWoman…

I received an anticipated new shirt in the mail this week. It is a football jersey that has, 'Proverbs 31 Woman' written on it. I waited for this shirt to be delivered ALL...... week. I finally got to wear it yesterday and woke up feeling energized…like, “I have this day!” But, as the day persisted I got [...]

Living Your Passion…FULFILLED…

The last 6 months I have been reflecting a lot on what it means to walk out our 'calling.' When I say, 'calling' I mean- obedience to a specific mission or assignment God has placed upon your life. For most of my life I have lived ‘On-Mission’ trekking among some of the most primitive tribes [...]

I Choose…

This morning I woke up with a promise that “His mercies are new EVERY morning." The last few months have been a little rough. I feel the words to the new hit song, 'This is Me" by The Greatest Showman, echo through my heart. “When the sharpest words wanna cut me down,...."  Accusations, lies, half-truths slung [...]
