Level Ground

This morning as I was reading through Ps. 143, verse 10 seemed to be “manna” for me today. “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.” Each morning I pray and ask for the Holy Spirit to fill me and lead my path. I offer up my plans for the day praying over them, yet yielding to …

Around the Mountain, Again?

The last day of the writing conference was the most inspiring for me. Previously, during the week I was a little disheartened after hearing that the title of my book may need to be changed and that the editor had not been able to start working on my book due to other projects. Several times I was fighting the battle in my mind if I was called to …

Mountain Top Experience

One year ago if you told me I’d be at a writer’s conference I never would have believed it. This week I am attending Life Way’s Blue Ridge Mountain Writer’s Conference.

Are You Waiting on God?

Happy Mother’s Day

Sometimes in the daily grind of rountine I easily forget the honor of being a mother and the awesome responsibility that comes along with the title “Mom”. It’s so easy to get busy and lose sight of what is really important…training our children in God’s ways. With influences from school, peers, T.V., and computers these …

Passing the Baton

Is it time to pass the baton of leadership? Who is God rising up to take it from you? Paul counseled Timothy, “The things which you have heard from me … entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:2 NASB). Throughout the last few months while I have been finishing my book and contacting Christian …
