October Monthly Devotional: Make It Personal

Three can be a crowd, right? Especially when you’re longing to spend time with a specific person one on one. Sometimes I wonder if God just wants to spend one on one time with us and we create 3rd wheels. Between Bible Study, conferences, Prayer Meetings, Missions Trips, church meetings etc there are many things…

Tweens & Teens Lessons I Wish I knew (PT2)

Last week, I shared with you I spoke at a young women’s empowerment. I totally ended up talking all about forgiveness and the next thing you know I’m pouring out my testimony.  I promised you I would share how it went so this post is my promised fulfilled.

September Monthly Devotional: The Creativity In You

July’s Monthly Devotional: Give It Back Already

Well, here is a dumb question you might answer if I asked; If you had a company car and decided to pursue a new job, would you have to give the car back? So many people would say “Duh Des that’s not a difficult question. Of course,  I would relinquish the car!” However, why is…
