Ever Feel Like You don’t Belong?

  Most of my life I have felt left out, looked over, and that I didn’t really fit in or belong. Some of this was because I moved so many times during my school years. I was always trying to fit into a new crowd of people who already had their cliques. And I was… Continue reading Ever Feel Like You don’t Belong?

Wrapped In His Heart

Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You (and only You) I wait (expectantly) all the day long.

I had a conversation the other day with a young woman who said something interesting. She said that for some people negativity is all they know.… Continue reading Nope!

You Are MORE!

  It doesn't matter what is being said about you. It doesn't matter what others think of you. What matters is what you think of yourself! And if you believe lies about yourself, then you will act on those lies instead of the truth. Any words that make you seem "less than" the amazing person… Continue reading You Are MORE!

Why Write?

  Gustave Flaubert said, The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.  I have found this to be quite true! In the early nineties I experienced one of the hardest periods of my life. During this time I wrote so much that my hand stayed in a perpetual cramp (no laptops… Continue reading Why Write?

You're the God who stays. You're the One who runs in my direction when the whole world walks away. You're the God who stands with… Continue reading The God Who Stays
