Help For A Meaningful Advent {and a give-away too!}

Let’s just admit it, we all struggle with keeping Christmas in perspective. The season just seems to sweep us away, propelling us forward into the spinning world of over-commitment, over-spending and over-everything! If you are already over it, or are overwhelmed at even beginning it, I hope what I share in this this video is…

A Place In The Circle – Reserved Just For You

One morning this summer, a memory I had long forgotten popped up in my mind.  I wonder if God brought it back to remind me of something important. When I was in the 9th grade, I ran with a large group of girlfriends.  We had known each other since elementary school.  We loved slumber parties,…

Let Him Catch You

Being still is very hard for me. I am by nature high energy and a multitasker – and God created me with a very busy brain! Just like you, my greatest strengths are also my greatest weaknesses. My go-go-go busy head has served me well over the years, but it has also been an obstacle…

A Beautiful ADVENTure: Anna

This is our 3rd devotion for Advent and it is coming to you in written form instead of video. I have been battling a cold for a few days and trust me, you do not want to hear my voice right now! I am praising God that this little annoyance waited until my speaking season…

A Beautiful ADVENTure: Mary

Hi There! If you are like me, trusting God while waiting is an on-going exercise. I’d like to tell you I have conquered the tendency to want to worry and fret, but that’s simply not true. I am still growing and learning. In my 59 years on this earth, I have increasingly trusted Him more…
