I’m a pretty independent sort. Even as a preschooler I would take care of myself without “bothering” my… Continue reading Without Jesus It’s All Downhill

YOU are Amazing!! And don’t you forget it!

You ARE amazing!! I finally began to believe that about myself after a few days of saying it out loud in front of the mirror. The year was 2008.

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… Continue reading You Are MORE!
