Why do those who are experiencing a life of pain and heartbreak still live for God? What’s the point of serving a God who allows us to struggle through so many hardships as we go through this life? As Believers, the foundation of our Christianity should be based on faith in a divine, all-powerful, all-knowing … Continue reading Looking Beyond Your Pain
I don’t run. I just don’t enjoy it. At all. I’m sure that’s hard to believe for a former track runner, but I loved competing. I just hated running for practice. You’ve seen all the running decals on the back of cars: 13.1, 26.2, 5K, 10K, and so on. You may even have one on … Continue reading Despite the Discomfort, Keep On Running
Have you ever thought about what it takes to create a great story? Think about your favorite books and/or movies. What were the characters like? And what about the plot? Do you like a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat? One with a predictable, satisfying ending, or would you rather have … Continue reading Keep Turning the Page
After months of begging, I finally allowed my youngest daughter to watch the Netflix series, Stranger Things – but on one condition – that I watch it with her. Kennedi had warned of the language and other questionable content within the series, so I wasn’t completely in favor of Kassadi watching. But I guess she … Continue reading Who’s Writing Your Story?
The 2019 club track and field season has come to an end, culminating with the AAU and USATF Jr Olympics. Most of our track friends and family were down in Greensboro, North Carolina last week to compete in the AAU Games.

Today I laughed when I passed the ice machine near our room, jokingly telling Kenny that it would have been perfect for … Continue reading You Prayed About It, But Do You Believe?
I recently read that Satan’s greatest weapon is his ability to deceive. That really stuck with me. So many of my recent blogs have been about overcoming mental struggles. Even when there is a tangible issue we must deal with; our battle first starts with our mental perception of the issue. In order to deceive … Continue reading Do You Trust God’s Promise… or Your Perception?
If you can’t tell by now, today’s Play Prediction is my favorite scripture in the entire Bible. And that’s pretty significant, as there are so many scriptures that I love and lean on. But this one? When I’m feeling at my lowest, and things are looking really bad, Romans 8:28 has gotten me through almost … Continue reading Just Breathe – It’s Already Being Worked Out
I messed up. Big time. You ever make a bad choice and then continually berate yourself, questioning why, why, why would you do that? How could you be so stupid, thoughtless, lazy, inconsiderate, or whichever appropriate adjective fits the situation?
My youngest daughter had her Move Up Ceremony a few weeks ago. As a proud mama, I was excited leading up to and during the entire event. There was a Student Awards section in the program. About 8 different categories of awards were given out during that portion of the ceremony. During the first award, … Continue reading An Award (or Lack Thereof) Doesn’t Define You
