10 Tips for Keeping Yourself Happy (& Healthy)


We all have those days when we decide to choose the decision that is not quite so good as it’s alternative—ahem, pizza over salad—and end up feeling bad. Not like, just bad physically, but like we just chucked all our good will and resolution in the cornfield (or garbage can).

For Everything There’s a Time


Seasons being dramatic changes. One season can be quiet and tranquil, a period of restoration and refreshment. The next can be hectic and unplanned, a rushing through time without being able to pause and take a breath.

Last year was a waiting year. God told me, “Just learn to rest and trust in me. I am preparing you for something in this calm season.”

This year has started, and already I know: this is a year of action.
