I STILL FEEL THE WORDS… 9/23/2021 …. Thursday

What words still resonate in your body? Were you told you were precious, precocious, picky, or a pest? Were you told you were a beauty or a brat? So smart or so stupid?

WHERE IS YOUR POWER?… 9/20/2021 … Monday …

I like to post right after I pray so it is fresh on my mind. Lately, I haven’t been able to get it all in. This week the scripture has a theme of power, not power over, but power with.

STEPPING OUT .. 7/15/2021 …Thriving on Thursday

I have a tendency to pull away into my own world, especially if there is conflict. I have discovered that no matter what our personalities or coping traits are, we can step out in faith.
