WAKING UP!… 7/29/2019 … Thursday

No matter what, we can wake up and remind ourselves of our potential and of the holy strength and love that holds us up.

BUILDING UP… 7/26/2021… Monday!

What do you love to do? How can you use that love to care for others, to offer encouragement, to build up? Sometimes I can beat myself up thinking that I mess up everything, that I can’t do anything well. But is that what really matters?

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. And, in stepping out, it is okay if we don’t get it all right, as long as we are livingContinue reading “STEPPING OUT .. 7/15/2021 …Thriving on Thursday”
