Do you feel that it’s a constant struggle to get things done? Lately I’ve felt like my time with God is getting pushed back because I don’t have the time. However, when I look at my schedule it’s not that I don’t have the time but I’m honestly distracted. How do we keep our attention […]

The Comparison Epidemic

The Comparison Epidemic

There is no doubt in my mind that we are in the information age. If you don’t believe me, simply acknowledge the fact that all you have to do to find the answer to a question is Google it – a term that didn’t come into existence until 2006. Isn’t that crazy? It’s one of […]

Waiting To Exhale

Waiting To Exhale

Waiting, waiting and still waiting on a card, flowers or even candy but nothing has come for me. Another day of love wasted on spending time by myself.

What’s Your Story?

What’s Your Story?
