Stages of a Meltdown!

How do you handle stress? I have different stages. For example, at the beginning, I’m like, “Ok, I can do this. It will be ok”. Then it goes to, “Oh my gosh! I’m doomed. What am I going to do?” Then finally, after retreating to my room and getting so far into a funk, I […]


“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13) What are the key words in this verse? “Because you trust in Him”. The understanding is that you already […]

Broken Family 

I think at one point in our lives, we have all experienced brokeness and separation within our families. Mine is no exception. Unfortunately, we have hurt feelings, un-forgiveness, stubbornness and pride in the way of repairing torn family ties. I have tried to do some mending on my own; trying to fix what I feel is […]

Lost Keys

If you’ve ever lost your keys, you know one thing – it can be frustrating! A few weeks ago, I lost some very important keys to me like my truck key and oh, the key to the business I work at! Not a good thing. You can’t open the door to your house, you can’t start your car […]

Keep Kindness Going

Ephesian 4:32 In these times of chaos, hatred, greed and selfishness; it is awesome to see a little bit of kindness spreading through our little town.

Thought for the day

Where do we find Wisdom? Are we born with a certain amount then as we grow and mature the wisdom grows with us? Is it from making mistakes or poor choices? Or does wisdom come by just living life and learning the do’s and don’ts?  I was asked recently where my wisdom comes from. All I […]

Don’t Forget

Deuteronomy 4:9; Judges 2:10-11 In the book of Judges, the Israelite’s forget about the things that the Lord has done for their people. They ultimately turn from the Lord to worship other things. In some ways, we can be like the Israelite’s. When we don’t read God’s word, pray, or worship, we may “forget” all […]


I look up to the mountains — does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord , who made heaven and earth! (Psalms 121 :1‭-‬2) If you read that right, David is asking where does my help come from?   Many years ago, alters were placed on mountains as signs to heaven, a […]

Count your Blessings

Sometimes we need to be reminded to count our blessings – even if the reminder is just a little off. I woke up in one of those moods. And I know I should be much more grateful for this day. (It is NOT raining!!) I should be much more thankful for every good thing I […]

Never Underestimate

While standing in a checkout line recently, I was hearing some very negative comments and chatter about the new manager at this particular store. Some of the comments consisted of, “she’s so young what does she know about managing anything, she won’t last long, she won’t be able to handle the pressure”, and so on. […]
