Keep Planting, No Matter What.

Psalms 126:5-6 says,

Those who sow with tears
    will reap with songs of joy.
Those who go out weeping,
    carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
    carrying sheaves with them.

I was reading this the other day and began to think about what it meant.  Sorrow comes.  We all have trials we go through, but in this passage of scripture, I find it’s encouraging us to not give up on doing good, even though we may be suffering while we serve. Continue reading…

Where does your time go?

Last week was tough. I had several vegan dinner fails … Consecutively.  So as much success as I had with my plant based dinners the week before, last week’s dinners were the antithesis. I actually wrote this post last week, but somehow it didn’t get posted. I guess it really only counts if I posted it LOL. Anyway, dinners this week are going better (in case you were wondering).  I’m cooking Continue reading…

Hi guys!  Before I get into today’s blog post, I have to tell you about a major mom win in my house the other night…  Two nights ago, I made chicken parmesan for dinner, but instead of spaghetti noodles, I made noodles out of zucchini!  AND THE KIDS ATE IT!!!  They went on and on about how good dinner was!  It was one of those rare moments when moms can sit back in satisfaction, not just that dinner was good, but that the kids were eating vegetables and actually enjoying them! (not just complaining about them.)  LOL Continue reading…

Jumpstart Creativity: Try Something New

I’ve been talking about how to become more creative.  If you missed the previous post, You ARE Creative: tips on how you can become more creative now, click HERE to read.  It will get you fired up and ready to try something new … which is what we’re talking about today!  So let’s get started!

Our brains are so complex.  It’s been said that they are more powerful and faster than the most current supercomputers.  And the synapses in a single brain number more than the number of galaxies in the observable universe, and more the stars contained in the Milky Way galaxy!!!  Tell me that happened on accident.  Go ahead and try.  LOL.  Brains fascinate me.  Because I’m a nerd.  Ok, moving on to how this applies to trying something new and creativity… Continue reading…

You are creative!

I want to start out this year by declaring that you are creative.  You may not think so, which is why I’m writing this post.  To help you find your creative side — because I promise it’s there!  I have so many wonderful posts planned for this year, but they will do you no good if you don’t believe you’re creative.  So I have to start at the foundation:  You ARE Creative.

MEET YOUR CREATIVE SIDE…

You are creative.  Yes, you.  Don’t believe me? Let me prove it.  Continue reading…

What is Your Gift?

You’d be surprised how many people I encounter who truly believe they have no special talent or gift.  I can’t believe that’s true at all!  I want to set the record straight.  You DO have a gift!  You’re believing a lie if you think there is nothing special about you. Continue reading…

How Much Can You Handle?

The Bible doesn’t say that God won’t give you more than you can handle. I have no idea where that concept came from, but I suspect it’s mankind’s wishful thinking. I think the verse that people confuse with this concept is 1 Corinthians 10:13, which says, “The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.” Continue reading…

Going All In

A while back, my husband ministered a message called “Going All In.”  The message was about turning from our ways and giving all to Jesus.  Surrendering everything to Him and going 100% with everything we are, not holding anything back.  I drew a picture, shown here. Continue reading…
