If words have power, then put them to work!

Today my word is filled. It comes from the promises of Ephesians 1. If I lose sight of my goals for today, I'll recall that I'm filled to the measure of the fullness of God. It's an easy word that brings me back to my "goals" for today. Words are simple. Just pick one and… Continue reading If words have power, then put them to work!

Why you can’t “make it happen…”

  I've seen countless people working so hard to "make things happen." I've been guilty myself of getting in a hurry to spring into action with my latest crazy idea. Worthy causes, great people, even better innovative ideas. Yet until God is clearly moving in our midst,  we are best to wait. Read a great… Continue reading Why you can’t “make it happen…”

Dear Christian, this is NOT how to win the world…..

Few things make me angrier than when someone in the Body of Christ "falls" or sins and other Christians begin to attack. I've seen it numerous times but recently I could not contain my frustration. Seems someone somewhere had determined Beth Moore was no longer fit to be amongst their options for Bible study authors… Continue reading Dear Christian, this is NOT how to win the world…..

The real reason people shop online…

Outside is my happy place, that is unless it's cold. Part of my fun is critters. Koi pond, bird feeders and one of my favorites, baby turtles. For the last couple of years, I've bought my turtles from a traveling reptile exhibit. For those 2 years, I've consistently marked it on my calendar, traveled the… Continue reading The real reason people shop online…

Mastering the moment in minutes…

  It only takes one. All too often, we think we have to have it all figured out. Our life planner ready, goals written in ink, with a busy calendar to match. While that can be good, we master the moments in minutes. How? By being present IN the moment. Being kind to someone. Smiling.… Continue reading Mastering the moment in minutes…

That fine line….

😇Over the years, I've met some amazing folks. Having interviewed people for years, often I think back to specific memories of one-liners that have shaped who I've become as a writer and speaker. John Croyle is a man with a magnetic personality. Having been very successful playing football at the University of Alabama, he also opened… Continue reading That fine line….

Because being in ministry is….

Uncomfortable! When I set out to publish a Christian magazine  2 1/2 years ago, I somehow thought it would be at least a little bit easy. Utilizing years of writing experience, a great mentor,  sound business  practices, and a lot of creative energy, it seemed the doors where flinging open. I'm a fan of open… Continue reading Because being in ministry is….

Looking for peace when you can’t find it…

Though my dad and I were never close, he asked for the same thing EVERY Christmas. "What do you want for Christmas dad?" Every year it was the same. "Peace." Now I get it. Though we differ in our reasoning, this is one time I actually get my late dad's desperate plea year after year… Continue reading Looking for peace when you can’t find it…

This is my “thing.” What is yours?

You could say it's my "thing." The Purpose of Purpose! Does your life have a purpose? YES! My passion is purpose. Because I’ve spent years interviewing others, often that word is a central focus of most conversations.  Just imagine.... if all who consider themselves  Christians realized their giftedness, we would be some of the most infectious people on earth!… Continue reading This is my “thing.” What is yours?
