Spiritual manipulation PT2: Learning The Voice Of God

It was breathtaking exploring the people, food, and culture of Greece. A few years ago a teacher gifted me the gift of a trip to Greece. Yup you heard correctly Greece. Along the journey of touring, I bumped into a few language barriers. This stirred up feelings of discomfort, fear, lack of direction, hunger, and…

December Monthly Devotional: Ripping God Out Of The Box

Happy December! and Happy Last Month of the Year.  Don’t put God in a box. Let him excite you  and surprise you.  I woke up at 3am with a song on my heart made by God. I wish you could hear the melody of the song or maybe you can just make your own.  Well,…

New Series Introduction: Spiritual Manipulation

Before starting on this topic I want to clarify a few things; to avoid being misunderstood. I’m not against spiritual advisement.

While I’m not a mom yet we both hold adoption both dear to our hearts.  We met about two years ago at bloggers conference called Declare in Texas. We instantly became friends. Although we are…

I Burned All My Old Journals

If you a writer you may cringe at the title of this post.  No need to pray for God to revive my journals.  The burning of my journals was inspired by God. Trust me; else I would have NEVER!. With all honesty, I would have probably kept those journals forever. At first, I didn’t understand…
