Fearless or “fear less”

Blog Leave a Comment

I’m a worrier. Even as a child I worried. Back then, I mostly worried about getting in trouble. I was terrified of being in trouble. In school, if I was even next to the kid that got in trouble, I would get upset. As if my proximity to them meant I was in trouble too. Now, as a grown-up, I …

Reflections from the women’s retreat, Part 2


I recently began sharing with you about the Amazing Love Women’s Retreat. (Part 1 here) I experienced a truly intimate time in God’s presences during my quiet time.

First in Acts 2:12, when the Jews were amazed and perplexed by the …

Just breathe: A Mary & Martha story


I’m being like Martha when I need to be so much more like Mary. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.” (Luke 10:40) It has been one of those mornings. Seems like I’ve been …
