  • Conquering Condemnation-Spirit of Pride
    We are continuing our Faithful Friday blog post series on the subject of condemnation.  This week we will talk about a subject that everyone can relate to and that is pride. I have struggled with perfectionism on many different levels every since I can remember.  From second grade spelling bees to something as simple as packing my kids lunch— I have always had an expectation...

  • Conquering Condemnation
    Hey there!! I hope everyone has has a fabulous week so far! I know I have! We are continuing our faith-filled Friday’s on the subject of condemnation. We know that Christ defeated our sin and shame once and for all, but what we forget is that there is a part that we must play in that process of restoration.  When we are feeling the weight of...

  • Conquering Condemnation
      I am so glad to be with you all for the month of November to share on these Faith-filled Fridays! I want to talk to you this month about a subject that has challenged me and that is condemnation.  Condemnation is a word that just sounds dirty..  And it even feels heavy and like a cloud of darkness swarming over you. It carries with...

  • Be Different
    I can't believe October is about to come to an end and we are beginning a new season.  A season that brings cold weather, fires, family gatherings and change. Fall is a constant reminder of change.  From the leaves changing colors to the ground covered in leaves as they fall preparing for new growth in the coming spring. The season of Thanksgiving and Christmas is...

  • Truth Over Feelings
    As I have shared in my previous posts.  God has me examining my heart.  He is refining me.  He is slowly chipping pride away. I have always loved to write.  Most of the time it comes so easy.  But for almost a year I have struggled to put my thoughts to paper. I have found myself asking God "where are you" and felt most of...

      I'm so sorry...yes I realize that Faith post Friday has become Saturday.  That was not my plan and without going into all the reasons why I will just rest in knowing that I believe it was exactly what God designed it to be.  I spent this week heavy and deep in trying to accept "change".  Trying to embrace it but knowing that it was...

  • Hidden Grief
    Hey friends! I'm back for my last blog post on Invisibility. So far I've covered Motherhood, Social Media and Unanswered Prayer. Whew! Who knew there were so many ways we can feel unseen? These have been heavy topics so I really wanted to write something light hearted today. But after praying and giving it a lot of thought, I felt strongly that God wanted me...

  • Unanswered Prayer: Feeling Invisible to...
        Unanswered Prayer: Feeling Invisible to God     For this Faith Post Friday, I want to focus on something that truly stirs my heart – unanswered prayer.  I know each of our stories is different, but I'm going to bet you have experienced a time when you felt invisible to God.  When we are desperate for Him and we cry out for help and He doesn't rescue...

  • In All Things Jesus
        “Every generous act and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights; with Him there is no variation or shadow cast by turning.” James 1:7 All things are from Him. It’s hard to accept that some times. Instead, we question are we good enough, have we done enough to deserve such a gift or a current blessing that He has...

  • I Was Made To Worship
    It was at the end of the training season for the Little Rock half-marathon that I remember going to a pre-race dinner.  I was pulling up to the hotel to pick up college friends who were in town for the race. As one friend proceeds to get into the car, she noticed the radio station on the Christian station and commented “April-you still listening...

  • He Hears
    It has been one of those weeks. Sometimes I have felt as if I could hardly breathe. I have been weepy and my emotions are raw. Usually when I feel this way it is because I am tired from lack of sleep or exhausted from traveling or even tired from doing “good” things that I know are worthwhile. Sometimes I feel something else is going...
