It’s been a busy week. As you’ve gathered by now, I firmly believe that America is in her “fall” side of the rise and fall of the USA. What we’re witnessing is the final arrangement of the chess pieces before the Day of The Lord. We don’t know if it will come next week or in another thousand years, but it’s safe to say that world events...

Release. There are many forms of release that we face and deal with throughout our lives. Each form representing something different. Yet, how we define it in any given situation is what makes the difference. There are releases of fear, joy, excitement, wonder, sadness, purpose, trust, change, and accepting. Based on the matter at hand at the time deems one of these forms of release.
It can also represent challenge. Challenge when we struggle with allowing ourselves to release what needs to be let go. We try to fight it thinking we know what is best and yet without allowing ones...

Loving the Lost into the Kingdom

Being a Christian on a very secular college campus on the “Left” coast is not exactly a walk through the tulips. There are days, even weeks, where my very spirit is twisting and turning in agony. Some days, it feels like my tiny little prayers get sucked up into a bubbling, oozing tar pit of decay, and other days I can...

Summer doesn’t just end in my world. It comes to a crashing hault. I blame Labor Day. If we had no holiday to mark the end of practical summer, we’d hardly notice its passing. September would give us 30 days to make the transition (maybe 31 in Indiana, I never could figure out their time zones). We’d begin the month in shorts an T-shirts, end it in flannel jammies...

Change, there are different facets of this word. We all face change, except change, live with change, and deal with change. However, how do will process change. It can be a positive or negative depending on the situation at hand. No matter what that situation is we still must process it.
That has been the theme of my life , and in that each aspect of change has arisen.
In facing change, I have had surgery that has caused me to face a lifestyle change. My battle with weight started in junior high and has been a constant battle for most of my life. To my shame at graduation...

Tomorrow I leave for the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) conference in Indianapolis. While most writers who attend such conferences make some connections, get some manuscript requests from editors and agents, and learn a bit more about their craft, I think most of them will also admit that the primary reason for attending such a conference is to meet and hang out with a group of people who share their...

I remember the first time I heard the term “fiat currency.” I asked my economics instructor, “So currency only has value because we believe it has value?”
“That’s correct,” he replied.
I pushed. “So what happens if the entire country just stopped believing a dollar had any value?”
He smiled. “Hope you’ve stocked up on chickens.”
I still find this concept amazing. It’s almost like we’ve been fooled....

Do you ever wonder how we survived childhood? I mean, really, can there be a more hostile environment on this planet than the gym locker room in a junior high school? Maybe that’s why the educational masterminds decided to change “junior high” to “middle” school. Maybe it sounded less treacherous. Kind of like changing the name of Sudan to…say…Happystan. They should try that. I’m sure it would work as well as...

A phrase I often hear in my engineering world is “it is what it is.” Meaning, essentially, that we have no control over the issue under consideration and that we must simply work as best we can around it. Most of us can relate. On a daily basis, we encounter any number of problems, some of which we can solve ourselves or with the help of others.

Then there are those that fall under the “it is what...

What I know for sure is that without God being an active part in my life this year would have turned out different. His daily presence and taking the time to read his word and learning how to apply it on a daily basis has helped to know he is real and he does care. Taking time to pray and share my heart and confess my shortcomings and seek strength and wisdom is all part of this daily process.

What I know for sure is that true friendships are hard to come by, but when you have them, they need to be cherished. They are there to help, encourage, teach and train us on our path to being...

There are certain's in life that we all will face. One way or another our lives will be touched by them. Certain that we will have needs to be meet, certain that we will pay taxes, certain that we will face the lose of a loved one, and certain that we will make mistakes.
Flawed, a word that we do not commonly use in our daily language. Yet, it is something that is a part of life. All of us are flawed. We are human, and in that we make mistakes. We hurt people in our lives, and that hurt can not only effect the person it is directed toward, it may also effect those...

John 7: 1- 5 (NCV) After this, Jesus traveled around Galilee. He did not want to travel in Judea, because some evil people there wanted to kill him. It was time for the Feast of Shelters. So Jesus' brothers said to him, "You should leave here and go to Judea so your followers there can see the miracles you do. Anyone who wants to be well known does not hide what he does. If you are doing these things, show yourself to the world." (Even Jesus' brothers did not believe in him.)

There are weeks when you feel like is there relief in sight. There are weeks were you wonder is it going to get easier anytime soon. There are weeks that seem to drag on and you wonder, really another day like yesterday. When does the break come, when does the relax come, were do I find that place of peace that once used to be so evident. That is what this week has been. A Calgon take me away moment has been a part of each day this week. This week was my week of wrestling, my week of battle and my week of weakness. Being focused on a daily basis has been a fight.

It has been several weeks since my last pen. With all that has been going on it has been hard to put into words all that has taken place.
The mind can store and hold much knowledge, with that comes the gamete of every type of emotion you can imagine.
We never imagine having to lose people we love and are dear to our heart. And to lose two in less than a two week period plays with the mind. On top of that my mother being in the hospital and then having a heart cath the same week, it has been a whirlwind of trying to maintain. In the mist of these events, my co-workers boyfriend...

The world spins and we revolve with it. How are we revolving. Are we revolving into the positive that life can bring. Are we revolving into the lessons we are taught to help us change and mature. Are we revolving into the despair of life and not seeing the good in each day we are blessed to have. The reality is that each of us have revolved into one of these at some point in our lives and we will do so again. Why, because we are human, we have feelings and when we are dealing with those feelings and allowing ourselves to dig deeper into ourselves this will happen.

During a jog one day, the Lord began to speak to me. (I hate to admit it, but it’s one of the few times He has my undivided attention.) Like I was saying, the Lord was bending my ear during a good sweat because for the longest time I was feeling static and even useless as a Christian. It seemed no matter how hard I tried, I haven’t been able to connect to my Lord. You know what I mean by connecting to Him? Like when you feel the very presence of God enter the room, He practically suffocates you with His love, and He leaves you feeling like a pile of jelly lying on the floor.

Tragic Scenes by Ron Estrada
Tragic Scenes

As Christian writers and readers, we have a responsibility to show
the light of Christ in a fallen world. The irony is that, in our quest
to uphold what is right and can save the world, we will be identified as
the hindrance to a peaceful, just society. Ours is a task of
self-destruction. We patiently watch the chaos unfold daily around us,
speaking the truth and taking the hostile rebuttal from a majority that
cannot bear to see the light.

Is God Speaking To You?

Do you ever feel like you’re hearing things from God, but you just not quite sure?

This is common, and happens to everyone.

At some point along the way we feel like God is speaking to us, showing something, telling us something, revealing his plans, etc., and some how we fall into a bit of doubt. We start feeling like it should be different or things weren’t exactly as I thought they were and we fall into unbelief and doubt that we were hearing...

A blog filled with poetry and short stories

The poetry I write comes from my life, my experiences and my heart. As a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend and so much more I've seen and been through a lot to get where I am today.
While most poems I write are raw emotion, they still reflect the honesty in are feelings, and how God uses us most when we get to that honest place within ourselves.

You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. (Psalm 56:8 NLT)

How many times in my life and you in yours asked this question? Generally we say it this way: “why me lord?” I believed for the longest time that He answered with “because you deserve it.” Now I know that wasn’t really God saying that to me, more like Satan, but I believed it, I truly believed because of all my sins I didn’t deserve God’s Love or forgiveness. Why would He want me to be part of His crowd? Besides I wasn’t ready to be a “Bible thumpin, glory hallelujah person giving up friends and parties, the” worldly ways”...

This perhaps is most difficult to do. For I think when we pause, letting another person tell you their story, then we can truly walk a bit in their shoes, seeing where they come from.
