I-contact or eye contact?

Becoming a grandmother has been an amazing journey. Our sweet Nessa is adorable, sweet, and from her I’m learning so much. Watching her mom and dad learn the joy of being parents is fun to watch. She changes so much everyday! She is almost 4 months old. Within the first few weeks I noticed something

A “wet and wild” Wimbledon? So much for class! Let’s take a stand people! PLEASE GET MAD ABOUT SOMETHING!

We love sports. I especially love tennis because it’s one game I get and also enjoy playing. This year was no different. Our family watches as much as we can as the tournament leads towards the finals. Wimbledon is unique in that it is known to be high class. The athletes are even required to

This way to better health….

It really does only take one solid decision to change everything. Many people go on diets and completely wreck their self control. If that works for you, great! Keep at it. When I’m struggling with my diet, I just make one definitive decision for that week.  By giving up one thing, it keeps me mindful

Dear Christian, this is NOT how to win the world…..

Few things make me angrier than when someone in the Body of Christ “falls” or sins and other Christians begin to attack. I’ve seen it numerous times but recently I could not contain my frustration. Seems someone somewhere had determined Beth Moore was no longer fit to be amongst their options for Bible study authors

For the last couple of years, I’ve bought my turtles from a traveling reptile exhibit. For those 2 years, I’ve consistently marked it on my calendar, traveled the

Mastering the moment in minutes…

  It only takes one. All too often, we think we have to have it all figured out. Our life planner ready, goals written in ink, with a busy calendar to match. While that can be good, we master the moments in minutes. How? By being present IN the moment. Being kind to someone. Smiling.

Please and thank you, for all the wrong reasons! Adult only though.

It did seem weird.  I’ll admit. It was a big wave of the sincerest gratitude. I could see that he saw me by the way he went to the other side of the road and went much slower as I jogged by. The gray pickup truck was the big kind with a huge tool chest

Looking for peace when you can’t find it…

Though my dad and I were never close, he asked for the same thing EVERY Christmas. “What do you want for Christmas dad?” Every year it was the same. “Peace.” Now I get it. Though we differ in our reasoning, this is one time I actually get my late dad’s desperate plea year after year

This is my “thing.” What is yours?

You could say it’s my “thing.” The Purpose of Purpose! Does your life have a purpose? YES! My passion is purpose. Because I’ve spent years interviewing others, often that word is a central focus of most conversations.  Just imagine…. if all who consider themselves  Christians realized their giftedness, we would be some of the most infectious people on earth!
