Have you ever thought about fasting?  Me neither! (Hee, hee!) Seriously, I have never thought of fasting being relevant to my life.  It’s not that I don’t think it should be done, I just have never thought of doing it. Plus, my idea of people fasting has always been of the Israelites in the desert […]


This past weekend I was a part of what I would call a ‘miraculous holy cow’! First, have you ever signed on to do something that you were uncertain anyone would show up to?  Or stepped out in faith and just hoped you didn’t make a fool of yourself? Well, I did exactly that when […]

Spring Cleaning

It probably comes as no surprise that I’m a little bizarre about a few things in life.  We’ve all got ‘our thing’ that annoys us, is a pet-peeve or just drives us crazy!  These ‘things’ may not be a concern to anyone else, but to us…they can be lethal! Topping my list is clutter. I […]

Giving it up to God

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday.  Of course, this means that the march towards Easter is under way and the ‘reason for the season’ is weighing heavy on the hearts and minds of Christians everywhere. Lent has officially begun and its traditional purpose is to prepare believers through prayer, repentance, change and sacrifice. Sounds kinda like a […]

Taking Care of Others

As seen in Thursday’s blog, taking care of yourself is crucial in order to be a valuable servant in the world we live in.  Clearly, when we don’t get the rest, exercise or God’s Power (through scripture and prayer) on a daily basis we become useless. However, the next step in the process is to […]
