It’s likely that in some point in our walk with Christ this has happened. When everything was going great matters were taken into our own hand and ended in complete disaster. 

Who? How? What just happened? These are all questions we ask once the wrong plan is discovered. The key if one ever gets...

Motherhood is like no other. Early mornings, late nights, constant feedings… after working a eight hour plus work day, coming home can seem like a mountain of tasks that never seem to be completed. As commonly stated, motherhood is a journey.

“For who has despised the day of small things? For these seven rejoice to see The plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. They are the eyes of the LORD, Which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth.””
Zechariah 4:10 NKJV

One day my mom and I had a conversation about heating up food. She informed me that as a child microwaves were yet to be invented and once they came into household use they were bulky, expensive and non-en...

Part two of our debt free journey ending with us stepping full time into ministry and entrepreneurship with another car loan. To make matters worse, I traded that 4 door sedan in for an even larger family friendly vehicle rolling over $4,000 of negative equity into yet another car loan totaling $26,000.

Worship is more than just listening to a praise song but actual acts of trust and obedience.

Musical worship sounds create vibrations that cause an emotional response to retreat to our Savior but it doesn’t stop here.
