Decisions. Decisions.

I was recently forced to re-evaluate a certain area of my life and it was quite uncomfortable. Everything I’d lined up to do made perfect sense and fit the mode of a well-crafted plan. Still, something wasn’t quite right. So I quieted myself for a couple of days, went back to my prayer closet and…

Word of the Week – Psalm 91

How often we run from living in the “shadow” of others. We can be inspired to live under the “shadow” that truly matters as we navigate these challenging and uncertain times.

Words You Need to Ditch Right Away

What you see in the mirror always seems to be inferior – even on your best day… Perhaps you are this woman. If so, keep reading… There are many words that we can use to describe ourselves. What we say has a significant impact – more than we sometimes realize.  Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the…

When Women Gather: Mental Wellness Conversation + More

I recently had the pleasure to meet with Kim Jones, founder and organizer of the GEM Experience in Trenton, NJ. Her upcoming event in February 2020 will include a panel discussion on mental wellness, domestic violence, and life changing moments just for women. I’ll be one of the featured panelists and I’m super excited about…

Accepting the Call to “Be”…

Many of us will wear many hats, titles, and positions; but no other calling is more sacred than the call to just “be” in God’s presence… There were so many pivotal moments in the New Testament Bible where Jesus was very much active – preaching, teaching, discipling, counseling, healing, and preparing for His destination to…

Everything We Need…

I have been reflecting a LOT on Genesis 3 (CLICK HERE),  the fall of humanity, and the temptation to seek futile/worthless pursuits. I shared this reflection in a women’s Bible study a couple of weeks ago and it aroused a passionate discussion about God’s wonderful provision and care for us versus Satan’s lies and deceitful promises….

The Call to Serve: Marriage

November 4th will mark thirteen years for us… I remember it like it was yesterday. On November 4, 2006, we said our “I do’s” in front of about 150 witnesses in the beautiful, cool, and crisp fall season of New Jersey. The wedding reception with our loved ones, Bahamas honeymoon, and endless celebratory moments were a…

Like Jesus Did: Creating “Buzz”

There is no better model for serving others than how Jesus did here on earth… We are clearly not witnessing any shortage of leadership agendas and propaganda. My social media feed is bombarded with sponsored posts by organizations and individuals who desire folks to buy-in to what they are claiming to offer. Certainly there is…

Perfectly Imperfect…

So, I’m noticing a personality trait in my daughter… Last year’s home-school year had its fair share of challenges. Jordyn’s dad and I pulled our then 4-year old from traditional preschool after I officially retired from teaching. I created a routine at home that allowed her to be creative while still learning the basic foundations….

Here’s to “Firsts”

#Leadership #MattersOfTheHeart Exactly two years ago, I had no idea what I was being drawn to. I really didn’t have a clue about “my next big move” or what specifically God wanted me to do in my ministry and service to women. I was compelled to publish a resource – CLICK HERE – that would educate…
