30 Days of Surrender

Good morning, friends! Starting May 1st, I will begin a series entitled 30 Days of Surrender. I encourage you to search your hearts and pray for divine revelation regarding what you need to release that keeps you tethered to this world. Romans 12:2 reminds us that we should not copy the behaviors and customs of…

I Surrender All

Good Monday morning, friends! With last week firmly behind me (as it should be), I’m ready to greet this week with fresh eyes and a positive attitude. There’s something about the power of a storm to turn things upside down in your life. In my case, it was a Nor’easter that threatened to take down…

Sunrise Sermon: Arms Wide Open

Ever have a bad day? I mean a really bad day? You know the kind of day I’m talking about — where so many things go wrong that this becomes your expectation. Before the day is even over, you just wish it would end. You’re frustrated and might even be tempted to cry. Bump that!…

Who Really Knows You?

  About a year or so ago, I attended a full-day workshop on a Saturday morning. The presenter was a brilliant man, and I had witnessed him give a message or two from the pulpit of my church before. He’s not the type of pastor with the charisma that would fill a megachurch, but he…

Always Remember This

Good Monday morning, friends! I pray that the sun is shining wherever you are today. Even if it’s overcast or storming, know that storms don’t last for long.  I woke up with a grateful heart and a silly grin on my face this morning. All night long I dreamed about the eclipse. In this dream,…

Sunrise Sermon: Roots

Two years ago my friend Desiree invited me to read the bible in one year (along with several other sweet sisters). It was the continuation of something good that God had started in my life a few years earlier, so I jumped at the chance to delve into scripture with a group of ladies who…
