Conversations With God. Unexpected Answers.

I was recently contemplating the beauty of #prayer and intimacy with God. To have this connection is an honor as we get to voice and express our hearts to God — no matter the words or circumstances. Have you ever had a conversation with someone and felt like your words were misunderstood or lost inContinue reading “Conversations With God. Unexpected Answers.”

Relationships, Connections, & Partnerships…

#Choices #Network #MattersOfTheHeart I speak and consult with visionary leaders frequently about the necessity of healthy relationships and connections. And sometimes what we want and what God wants are two entirely different things regarding the matter. Godly career people, CEOs, ministers, missionaries, authors, founders, presidents, etc. desire to do right by their Lord and the people they serve. Such leaders areContinue reading “Relationships, Connections, & Partnerships…”

I Want to Forgive, But…

We don’t have to “mask” the pain… Imagine a man who just lost his last living parent and then was confronted by a group of family members with the latest “drama” of the day… #TrueStory Keep reading… #Genesis50 Genesis 50:15–20 (ESV) When Joseph’s brothers saw that their fatherContinue reading “I Want to Forgive, But…”

A Road Trip of a Life Time…

Imagine your spouse saying to you, “Honey, it’s time to leave our comfy/cozy home. Get rid of most of your stuff. We’re about to start traveling. I’m not sure exactly where we’re going, but God told us to trust Him.” #TrueStory Her name was Sarah – biblical figure, wife, mother, and warrior in her own right. Genesis 12 wouldContinue reading “A Road Trip of a Life Time…”

Traveling Light…

—Change may be on the horizon for 2021. If you can relate, keep reading. The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.” – Genesis 12:1 I can imagine that many of us will have to “drop” some things during this season as God continues to refine,Continue reading “Traveling Light…”

Coming Home…

March 2020 impacted so many lives in lieu of COVID-19 and the numerous changes people were required to adapt to. I almost didn’t believe it when I received notifications that my daughter’s school and the entire state of New Jersey were shutting down. I still had trouble accepting it one month into quarantine life asContinue reading “Coming Home…”

Just a Little Push…

–Jordyn, my six-year old daughter, rode her bike without training wheels — on the second attempt. I can’t express how ELATED I am as her mom! Jordyn had been insisting on removing her training wheels all summer long. Her dad finally did and they ventured onto the new territory of “big girl” transportation. You canContinue reading “Just a Little Push…”

Seeking Sex…

I won’t offer any deep interpretation, but I was extremely interested in Selah’s discussion about her approach to #sex and relationships. I know some women can relate as we remember the emptiness and confusion that came withContinue reading “Seeking Sex…”

Grief – Facing It Courageously…

“You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same nor would you want to.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Today marks nine years since I lost her –Continue reading “Grief – Facing It Courageously…”

A Perfect Storm…

The weather forecast had been predicting that New Jersey would get hit pretty hard with the trickle down effects of Hurricane Isaias.
