Does It Seem Impossible?

Fear can keep you from attaining something you want.   Whether you think it's possible or not depends on the way you see yourself.   Believe that you are capable of anything and you will be.   Some days it feels like just getting through the day is impossible! But don't ya know? I make… Continue reading Does It Seem Impossible?

I’m An Overcomer

Having children with special needs is such a challenge! But one thing I've learned....it keeps us TOTALLY dependent on God. No way can I be "in control" because in the blink of an eye, our life could be in shambles.   There are days my prayer has been, "Oh God, oh God, oh God" because… Continue reading I’m An Overcomer

I’m a Warrior, Not A Worrier!

Today my friend's situation reminded me of the need for this card. There are a bunch of things pressing in on me and my brain is in a tizzy (southern expression for going crazy).    *I'm trying to get a seat belt installed before heading south. I had to cut it because my son became… Continue reading I’m a Warrior, Not A Worrier!

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… Continue reading You Are MORE!

I Won!

Today I defied the compulsion towards People Pleasing!! (A lifetime-long struggle.)   Yesterday was grueling for me.   I taught reading to reluctant kindergarteners for three hours,   went to an appointment,   returned home in time to get my son off the bus --his OCD meant he asked every few minutes if we were… Continue reading I Won!

Are You Making Numb Choices?

It seems we are always hearing how important focus is to reaching our goals and bringing our desires to us. However, sometimes our focus is totally off. We work hard, do what we think we should, spin our wheels, and run faster on the hamster wheel, only to remain stagnant.   Why do you suppose… Continue reading Are You Making Numb Choices?

The Lies That Bind Us

  You were created for a purpose and are amazing, creative, valuable, and productive. YOU were born to shine!! Do you believe that? Or do you struggle to believe that you were born to shine because instead you believe lies about yourself? Perhaps lies like you are stupid, unlovable, you will never amount to anything,… Continue reading The Lies That Bind Us
