I just wanted to update you all that I will be taking a break from my blog to focus on free writing. I can't wait to tell you all about it when I'm finished! I've been studying the topic of soul care, and as I've asked the Lord how I can better take care of … Continue reading I’m Taking a Break!
The other day, I went to a Chinese auction, completely not expecting to go to one when I had woken up that morning. It was my mom's ticket, but she was unable to go, so she gave it to me for free. Since I'd had a panic attack at work, I wasn't sure I'd be … Continue reading Crazy Favor
Today, I was in a stressful situation at work that sent me into panic mode (which rarely happens at this job, thank God!). I sent a quick text to Lenny and told him how I was feeling. He sent me a text back that he was praying for me. Just knowing that he was on my side … Continue reading Praying for Your Spouse
I generally tend to be optimistic. However, in light of my optimism, people tell me that I'm sometimes unrealistic. And when people look at the negative side, they tend to tell me that they're just being realistic. One day, when I was in college, I looked outside and said, "Wow, it's a beautiful day outside. … Continue reading Pessimism is NOT Realistic!
Three years ago, I wrote a post on Facebook: "Sometimes we go through impossible situations so that we could truly know and believe that nothing is impossible with God." How appropriate for the conversation I want to have with you today about impossible prayers! Think of the impossible situations in your life. I want you … Continue reading Prayers for the Impossible

It's a fight against our own will, against our spouse's idiosyncrasies, and against what society expects of us. The hardest part of marriage is that you realize that your Prince Charming, or your Queen, is a human. … Continue reading Prayers for Eyes to See

Yesterday was Shine a Light on Slavery Day, a day to promote the #EnditMovement (Did you wear your red X?). Today, I'm ready to share how I feel about human trafficking, not only … Continue reading The Price of a Woman
As I've started working out on a regular basis, it has reminded me of God's Spirit. I feel more in tune with God as I'm focusing on my breathing and specific muscle movement. Because there are so many spirits out there, I believe that most Christians have shied away from the spirituality of God. While … Continue reading The Spirituality of God
Relationships are essential for our well-being. Studies show that people who have healthy relationships live longer and have an overall higher enjoyment of life. There's no better relationship (besides God) to invest in than the relationship we have with our spouse. I believe that there is an enemy of our souls that wants to keep … Continue reading Prayers for Unity in Your Marriage
Intimacy with God is made possible through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the presence of the Holy Spirit. We are able to draw near to God when we accept Jesus' sacrifice as truth, because we now have the righteousness of Christ. A couple of weeks ago, I read Tauren Wells' devotional on the YouVersion … Continue reading Intimacy with God
