Welcome to the blog!

As I journey through this life, I am learning  to answer my calling, step into my purpose and to use what I have been given. I want to be a good caretaker of my gifts, skills, time, and resources. 

In this blog, you will read about faith, food, and family.

 

“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much.” – Luke 16:10

When You See Your Face on a Stranger

When You See Your Face on a Stranger

It's hard to even know where to begin. At the start of the year, I know that God has been taking me on a journey, preparing me for the purpose He has for me. He has taken me from someone who was always on the move striving for success to someone who sits still and...

Reckless Love (Yes, That Song!)

Reckless Love (Yes, That Song!)

When God Makes His Desires Your Desires

When God Makes His Desires Your Desires

Psalm 37:4 says, "Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart." Some interpret this verse to mean that if you follow God, He will give you everything you want. However, that is only partially true. What actually happens is that when we are...

To Live, First You Must Die

To Live, First You Must Die

A couple of days ago, I was listening to a sermon by Christine Caine titled, "I Can't, But He Can".  She made the statement "There has to be a death before there can be a resurrection." Isn't that the whole premise of the Christian life? Romans 6:4 is a verse that is...

Laying Down My Dreams

Laying Down My Dreams

I guess it would have been foolish to think that God would speak to me during these 21 days but not ask anything of me. It would be foolish to think that He would request my undivided attention to then not demand my undivided attention.  It would be foolish to think...
