Lessons Learned Along The Way

Hello Girlfriends!

Can you believe it’s already May? Summer is almost here! I hope you are having a wonderful Spring!


We’ve had a challenging few months around here, but God has been faithful and good. I want to update you on what’s been happening and share a few things I’m learning along the way.

The video is longer than usual, so think of it as a podcast! 😊 My deepest hope is that you will find what I am sharing helpful and that you will gain a few practical ‘tools’ to apply to your own life.

Thanks for listening. I am mindful that your time is valuable. At the bottom of this post are Scriptures and quotes – some shared in the video and some that are not. I thought maybe you’d like to have them in print.

Many Blessings,

“He has the right to interrupt your life. He is the Lord. When you accepted Him as Lord, you gave Him the right to help Himself to your life anytime He wants.” – Henry Blackaby


The antonym for “judgmental” is “respectful”

When we feel judged:

“It is dangerous to be concerned with what others think of you.” – Proverbs 29:25

It is an emotional trap when you start worrying about what other people think.

When we judge others:

The New Testament definition of the word “judge”: condemn, damn, condemning, murder

“God never gives us discernment so that we may criticize, but that we may intercede.” – My Utmost for His Highest


The enemy is counting on the fact that you are going to forget who you are and whose you are when going through a crisis. And the best way to get us to forget is to leave us depleted.

“Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge.” — Psalm 62:5-7


“Resilience is not wishful thinking, positive thinking, or denial. It is the ability to optimistically view the future, even when the worst has happened. It is the capacity to recognize the truth and except it, to look at the future with hope and realism, and to except God‘s dealings with you as good. When hard things happen, God doesn’t turn His back. In fact, I believe He leans in closer and reminds us in a thousand ways that He is good all the time.” – Jan Silvious, Courage for the Unknown Season, pg. 33

Redemption, Restoration and Repair {with loved ones}:

“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” — Romans 12:18
