OK… so I’m not really burning my bra, for very practical reasons, but when my friend, Rachel Britton, asked me a while back to write a guest post for her blog theme #BeBoldGirl that was my first thought; I’m Burning My Bra! One of the chapter titles in my new book, it describes my spiritual […]Read More
Thank The Lord For Creating Coffee Beans!
Personal reflection moment: Hot coffee takes on a whole new dimension when fall hits and it gets cooler out. Mmmmm… I love coffee now, but haven’t always. Growing up, Mom always had the coffee pot going at the butt crack of dawn. She’d fix me breakfast, light a candle, and try to “motivate” me to […]Read More
No Fear! My Take On Politics, Voting, & Being A Christian
There is a mountain of “information,” opinion, facts and fabrications out there in cyber world and the media on voting in the present political climate we find ourselves in.

HELP! I’m Stuck Between Generations…Now What???

I am on Twitter, but I have come […]Read More

I went from being a grandma to three children to a grandma of five very quickly and, because of the circumstances, it has brought new emotions and thoughts to the […]Read More
Does This Outfit Make Me Look Fat?
It is a given that, for the most part, I write for women. It’s not that my thoughts are not relevant to men, it would benefit some to read my ramblings to, at least, give a glimpse in to the psyche of us women, and possibly, even help them to avoid common misunderstandings in their relationships. Why […]Read More
Ministry = Celebrity?: Not in God’s Book!
I have had the privilege of working with quite a few nationally known speakers and musicians in ministry over the past several years and have discovered something very disconcerting: Ministry and celebrity have apparently become synonymous in our culture and an entitlement attitude has infiltrated the Body of Christ. I am very disappointed and discouraged […]Read More
MOTHERS DAY: Blessing AND Curse
I have mixed feelings about Mothers Day. On one hand, it is nice that the role I chose to fill, that has been the primary focus of over half of my life, and in many ways has defined much of who I have become, is recognized and honored. On the other hand, I struggle with […]Read More
