In his book, Draw The Circle, Mark Batterson challenged us today to  pray crazy bold prayers. In Luke 18 Jesus told a parable.. verse 1 says, “Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.” Don’t we all do that? Pray and give up when things don’t work out like …

I got a deal on Siris XM radio and added it back to my car recently. I heard that old Loverboy song the other day, “Everybody’s working for the weekend.” That’s how a lot of people are. They complain on Monday, make it through Tuesday, rejoice in HUMP day, then celebrate that Thursday is the day before Friday. On Friday, …

My self esteem has been something I have struggled with for most of my life. I was not told that I was pretty or beautiful growing up. I think that is the most important time for a little girl to hear those words. It has taken me years to get to where I am today…but it’s still a battle I …

I used to not pray everyday. I would just go about my day, busy with three small children at home,  and make it through the day some how. Remember me telling you about my friend who prayed over the phone for me to get a hunger for the Word? Well, that started my daily quiet time with God.  I write …

There is a group of us on Facebook reading the book “Draw The Circle, 40 Day Prayer Challenge.” What I read today combined with something my Pastor said Sunday really hit home with me. I consider myself “sold out” to God. I love Him dearly, talk to Him, read the Bible and other books about Him, attend church regularly, and …

I believe everyone deserves a chance.They need to know that they are here for a purpose.When we allow someone’s past to define them, we are doing them an injustice.Jesus is a great example of how we should be.He hung out, ate with and talked to people that no one else would.As Christians in 2015, we tend to sit quietly in …

When I went to a traditional church years ago, I used to hear this from the pulpit… “If you aren’t praying everyday, something is wrong. There was a man who had so much on his agenda for the day that he had to add an extra hour of prayer. That put him praying for four hours a day.”This was repeated …

Have you ever heard that phrase before? I know I have. Especially when job searching.For Lent, I joined a group of people reading through the 40 Days of Prayer Challenge. It’s from “Draw a Circle” and the Circle Maker book by Mark Batterson. Here is a page from the book: “Don’t worry about meeting the right people. If you meet with …

I signed up months ago to write a blog post today about Compassion. Honestly, it’s on my calendar, but I forgot. I was overwhelmed with life last night and this morning. There are 999 other people who signed up to write about compassion today. I think that’s totally amazing.My idea of compassion might not match your’s. Compassion to me, is about caring …

About once a week, I go to Burger King for grits. Yes, I said grits. I could make them at home, but I like grits that are made by other people. I’m weird, I know. When I go by the window, I see a bunch of old men sitting inside talking. They are probably retired. It got me thinking. If they …
