Last night, my Pastor taught us a lesson I had NEVER heard. It actually blew my mind and I can not help but share it.Some of you might know the Scripture Matthew 5: 38-4, “38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps …

People close to me will be happy to tell you that I’m being fully honest here. I’m a nerd. I admit it. I am a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. This means I like all of The Lord of the Rings books and movies, as well as The Chronicles of Narnia books and movies. I can’t help it.Today, I watched …

Life is full of conflict. All we have to do is be born and we will face it at some       time in our lives.I have hurt people I deeply care about on accident before. It hurts me to see         them hurt. Honestly, I could never hurt someone on purpose. It is just not …

He almost drowned in the ocean, but was saved by a surfer who took him under his wing. This man became the …

Some days, I need to take my own advice! I have days where I do beat myself up over the past. I feel like a failure sometimes and like I have let down many people, but especially my children. I saw this picture on a friend’s Facebook page and thought about how true it is. As with any situation, you …

I have only been a parent now for 16 1/2 years. I would consider myself to be a decent mom. I am not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. But I do try. I try very hard. This new season in my life of being a single mom is challenging. I think children need a parent, not a friend. Well, maybe …

I have been talking about my Pastor’s messages, and he is talking about our calling. I know what mine is, at least I feel like I know. Then, I am asked to volunteer at two things that I will be really good at. Two things that I seem “fit” for. So, I am like, “What’s up God?” If you are my friend …

My Pastor’s definition of faith is this: “Assumable trustworthiness.” Faith is remaining hopeful long after something you were promised should have happened.He talked about Abraham on Sunday. When God told Abraham to sacrifice his son, Abraham did not understand, but was willing to do it because he trusted God. When I felt like God told me to home school my children, …

I realize that life does not always work out like we think it should. Our dreams can get shattered, bad things happen to good people, etc. But being negative does not help anything. Especially if you are so negative that you are squashing other people’s hopes and dreams.You should also be careful not to do this to yourself! I know …
