Letting The World God Define Your Beauty


We have allowed our society to let beauty mean a certain thing.

If, like me,  you type in the word “beauty” to a google or bing search to see what people really define beauty as, you’ll see tons of pictures of thin women, with long, luscious hair, powdering themselves with makeup.

I’m sure by the time you’re done going through those, you won’t feel that you’re beautiful.

4 Books to Add to Your Reading List (if you’re simplifying your life)


We all would do well to simplify our lives. Stress and overwork, extra stuff and disorganization lead us to live lives where we can’t enjoy the moment, where we can’t do our work the best it could be, and where we’re as miserable at home as at our over-busy work.

But we are all people of habit, and frankly, we’re used to the harried way we live. Sometimes the thought of changing it up so drastically makes us afraid.

We’ve come to view our possessions and the busyness of life as security–because when you get rid of the busyness and extra stuff–we’re forced to know who we really are, and what we really want. Continue reading “4 Books to Add to Your Reading List (if you’re simplifying your life)”

Yet another week’s Monday Mixup.

I have to confess, I’m finding it hard to keep up the inspirational stuff because my mind is just so taken up with travel plans for later this year! (whoo-whoo!)

I will be traveling to Africa this August and I’m literally sooo excited but I’m also nervous because I’ve never flown before (yeah, so I decided to take a ten-day trip? It’s all good).

Faith to Walk on Water


“And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? “

(Matthew 14:28-31)

A quest to know Jesus more. A step of faith. A tempest of doubt. A saving hand. A question of faith. Continue reading “Faith to Walk on Water”

Valentine’s Day—Thoughts of Love


With Valentine’s Day approaching, I was thinking about the reason we celebrate it. I was thinking about love.

Love has almost become a dirty word in our day.

People have been manipulating with, and playing off of that most vulnerable and appealing of emotions. We talk about how we love a pair of shoes or piece of furniture. People assure us that we’ll love the deal we made with them, the car we bought from them (really?….I’m guilty of talking like that as well!)
