I have been blessed to have found an outlet for the current of life, in my friendships. These women have adopted me into their hearts and named me their sister. They say the word so effortlessly and fill it with a grace that smooths out my broken edges and difficult ways. They have been the very sponges to polish my jarring weaknesses. They have been God’s hands to uphold me in the midst of trauma, loss, heartbreak, and pain.
“Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him.… Continue reading 7 More Days
There is a quiet these days. Each morning I wake up and its not like the mornings of years past but its not like the mornings of months past either.

There have been times lately that my heart has been so overcome with pain that I could not speak. (Psalm 18) The pangs of death surrounded me, and the floods of ungodliness made me afraid. The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me; the snares of death confronted me. I could not utter even a single syllable. It… Continue reading There is Power in the Name
One of the benefits of being an early 80’s baby is that I carry the fond memories of my 5-year-old self playing Nintendo with our next door neighbors, repeatedly watching MJ’s “Thriller” video (I actually used to think it was a movie b/c it was so long) and enjoying movies such as “Adventures in Baby-sitting”,… Continue reading It’s Our Time!: Key Lessons from “The Goonies”
When you’re in the journey of faith long enough, you learn that there are not only natural storms but spiritual storms as well. Just like a natural storm, a spiritual storm can create such strong winds and rain that the duo will knock you right off your feet and you find yourself falling flat on… Continue reading When the Winds Blow
This journey in my career has been just that. A JOURNEY. I’ve been trekking upon the twists and turns of winding roads for the last 7 years with my faithful companion Jesus.
