Ashleigh & Brett’s Adoption Journey…Love on the Line

Isn’t it funny how the Lord speaks? He speaks through people. He speaks through silence. He speaks through the words of worship. Here lately, as these past few weeks have slowly crept on, I’ve found myself asking Jesus for specific things. I see this adoption process, this wait coming to an end. This brings an…

To the girl who…wants to do something great for God.

Hey God. I know I’m no one special. I know I’m small. I know that there are so many other women out there doing massive things for you. Speaking to thousands. Singing to the masses. Leading ministries that are literally changing not just my country, but the world. I see so many of them all…

To the woman who…needs a word.

“You are loved” Do you ever ponder whether or not you are loved? Do you ever feel unloveable? Do you ever buy into the lie that you aren’t loved at all? “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners”. Romans 5:8 The cross…a…

To the girl who’s…a control freak.

Confession: I am writing this blog for myself. (Insert the big eyes emoji here.) Because… I am a control freak. Guilty as charged. And I would even be so bold as to say that I am not the only guilty one. If Jesus is my Savior, and if God is my Provider (Jehovah-Jireh), then why…

To the girl who…thinks the world is more exciting than Jesus.

“By faith, Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents, because they saw that the child was beautiful and they were not afraid of the king’s edict. By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharoah’s daughter, choosing rather to be mistreated with…

To the woman who…needs a word.

Last night in prayer God reminded me of words He spoke over me: On Dec 31, He told me 2016 would be a “year of abundance”. On Jan 1, He told me 2016 is a “year crowned with bountiful harvest”. At the time, I didn’t know exactly what that meant but excitement began to rise…

To the girl who…is trying to find an easy way out.

Sweet girl, Listen to these words out of Psalm 36. ” They are abundantly satisfied with the fulness of your house, YOU give them drink from the river of your pleasure, for with YOU is the fountian of LIFE, in YOUR light we see, oh please continue your lovingkindness to those who know you.” Last…

Ashleigh & Brett’s Journey: A letter to my girls…

Today was by far, hands down one of the hardest days of my life. Today was the day the Lord closed my chapter as girls minister at Gardendale First Baptist Church to open up my new chapter as full time stay at home mama. I knew this day was coming. I knew it would come…

To the woman who…needs a word.

“His Presence” This morning I read about His Presence. Relaxing in it brings about miraculous healing power. Being still before Him transforms the mind and heart. His Presence chases away the Pharisee mentality of rules, regulations, religion. It eradicates the presence of guilt, shame and condemnation. It instead invites relationship to unfold. His Presence alone…

To the girl who…hates her parents.

Hey girl. So we’ve heard that you maybe, sorta, kinda despise your mom and dad. Bottom line is…they don’t understand you and you have decided in your mind that you give up. On them. On trying to have a relationship with them. A few things that have ran across your mind and out of your…

To the girl who…is living in a broken world.

To be honest, I have been trying to avoid the news lately. It is too painful, and uncomfortable to take in. And even sitting here, I can’t really form into words the feelings I have regarding the shootings, riots and protests. People everywhere are searching for answers, and wondering where they can find peace and hope….

To the woman who…needs a word.

To the woman who needs a word… This morning a Southern Living magazine catches my eye. My first thought is our southern charm and hospitality in the south. Hospitality = generous and friendly treatment of visitors and guests; the activity of providing food, drinks, etc…for people who are guests or customers of an organization. “When…
