Dear Lord, Keep My Mouth From Evil….Amen!

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs,  that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29 As a high school teacher, I have the unique experience of being able to see the similarities of behaviors in both children […]

Never Forget That Jesus Loves You

Every day we need to be reminded that Jesus loves us.  Today is no different.  Satan, our adversary, never gives up on looking for strategies to attack our self-worth, so we need to be as vigilant in reminding him that we know who we are in Christ! As you play this audio/video, allow God’s word’s […]

Scheduling Conflicts

Anytime that we turn on the television or scroll through the pages of social media, there never appears to be any […]

If Jesus Were Sitting Next To Me….. 2018

I recently posed this self-reflective question at an event, “If Jesus were sitting next to you right now, what advice would he give you?”  As I reflect on 2017 and embrace 2018, I have to ponder the answer to this question for my own life.  Yes, 2017 came with many challenges, but there were many […]

What is Your Motivation?

Read Daniel 1 As I began to prepare for the Daniel Fast this year, I came across something that I had not paid attention to prior to this year.  I kept noticing the words, Daniel Plan and Daniel Fast mentioned in secular articles. Growing up in the church, I always heard of the Daniel Fast, but […]

It’s Time to Tune out Distractions

Afterwards, they wrote those obstacles on a canvas […]
