one foot in front of the other…

The evidence of my faith is not only in the clarity of my decision to move forward, but by actually putting one foot in front of the other and moving. It’s great to talk about what you would do, but it’s even greater to do it. It’s heartwarming to dream of your future, but it’s bolder to take steps to […]

With One Word

I’ve started this new year with a bit of fog. I feel strongly that I need to simplify, edit, pare down, purge, you-name-it, I’m throwing it out. I’ve tried to find a verse to anchor to. I’ve tried to come up with a phrase, no luck. I came across a site that asks for only one word to set your […]

When I’m not sure what to do next…

The New Year is right around the corner. I am cautiously optimistic. It seems as soon after the ball drops my expectations can too.

faith and fear ask the same question

Fear and Faith both ask me to believe in something I can’t see. Why is it so easy to believe in the fear? We are all afraid of something. And for most of us, these fears are preventing us from reaching our greatest potential. Fear of acceptance. Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Fear of intimacy. Fear of vulnerability.  Fear […]

What have I learned about BIG dreams?

  So, what is one thing I have learned about BIG dreams? I’ve learned not to count God out of the ideas that cross my mind. Too often I have missed out on things because I thought they couldn’t be done. A God-sized dream is just the type of idea that is too big for me, too impossible to bring […]

Does everything really “happen for a reason’?

We all know someone who says that everything happens for a reason. We know that there is good and bad all around us. We know that God has our back and allows us the choice to do life with or without Him. He does not secretly want us to fall flat on our faces. He doesn’t quietly chuckle when we […]

Too busy “doing”

What if I’ve been so busy “doing” that I’ve forgotten to “be” ? What if I’ve forgotten that on this journey I’m supposed to dream of my dream? What if in my anxiety and despair, I’ve concluded that it’s just not happening fast enough and I am losing hope? I am there. I have a huge dream. A “God-Sized Dream”, […]
