If words have power, then put them to work!

Today my word is filled. It comes from the promises of Ephesians 1. If I lose sight of my goals for today, I'll recall that I'm filled to the measure of the fullness of God. It's an easy word that brings me back to my "goals" for today. Words are simple. Just pick one and… Continue reading If words have power, then put them to work!

When “stinkin’ thinking meets wisdom…”

The Monday after Thanksgiving, I felt like a fat failure. I'd not worked out in several days and had over indulged in turkey, dressing and a lot of other things. The "black cloud" of the panic to get my double work out in (punishing myself) asap was following me around. At the same time, I… Continue reading When “stinkin’ thinking meets wisdom…”

Before long, you will notice that many will be posting and sharing things they are thankful for. It's always fun and inspiring to learn what others are doing to improve habits and attitudes.

Because being in ministry is….

Uncomfortable! When I set out to publish a Christian magazine  2 1/2 years ago, I somehow thought it would be at least a little bit easy. Utilizing years of writing experience, a great mentor,  sound business  practices, and a lot of creative energy, it seemed the doors where flinging open. I'm a fan of open… Continue reading Because being in ministry is….

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!… Continue reading This is my “thing.” What is yours?
