The Editor

As a writer I am always looking for an editor.  Sometimes it’s a friend, a sister or my husband.  When I’m really in a pinch…it ends up being me.  Thank God for spell check! Being my own editor is a bad thing. It makes no difference how grammatically affluent I am or how many words […]

Giving It Up For God!

As Lent came around this year, I really had no intention of giving anything up.  Not that I wasn’t interested, but I didn’t have any ideas on what to do.  However, on Monday I had a conversation with God and to my surprise HE gave me an idea! It went something like this…. “Should I […]

Stop the Comparisons!!!!

Last week’s blogs were all about taking the plunge to accomplish our life’s purpose no matter where we currently reside.  This week I would like to encourage us to stop one of the worst things we can do to sabotage our own personal journey… COMPARING OURSELVES TO OTHERS!!!! Unfortunately, we act like we are all […]

What Do You Offer?

The El Salvador mission story I blogged about on Tuesday really has had me thinking lately about what God really wants me to be doing. Not that I’m going to pack up and move to a far off land and build schools, hospitals and orphanages, but it does have me wondering what I bring to […]

September 11th

It’s impossible for me to post a blog on September 11th and not think of two things…the terrifying events of 9/11 and my nephew’s birthday.  One is absolutely horrendous and the other is such a wonderful blessing that I feel completely stuck in the middle of sorrow and joy…Sigh. I’m even more emotionally confused this […]

Being Content

Do you ever look at someone in their lovely life, driving their awesome car and living in their amazing house and think…oh, if I could just…. There is always someone better. Maybe they have more money, are better looking, have more stuff, have nice kids or snagged that fantastic job.  Regardless of what they have […]

Merry Christmas!

Since the next two weeks of my life will be filled with fun, family, friends and the kids on Christmas break, I will be posting only once each week.  I know, I know…you’re gonna miss me terribly!!  HA! HA! Honestly, I can’t contain my excitement because I love this time of year!  There’s nothing better […]

Happy Birthday, GEM!

God’s Encouragement by Meg celebrates two years of Tuesday/Thursday postings today!  WOOHOO!  Seems strange how quickly the time has gone and how much I’ve enjoyed this blog adventure. Considering I knew nothing about writing blogs and less about my Savior, Jesus Christ – I am amazed at the growth that God has allowed me to […]

Making Music

This past Sunday the praise band at my local church ROCKED the house! Not only were there some musicians who I absolutely adore playing that day, but every song they performed was spot on!  The notes blended, the piano soared, the guitar ripped it up and the drums beat to the rhythm of my soul. […]

True Gifts

It’s the last week before Christmas and I’m making my list and checking it twice!  Sounds like a song, huh?! (Don’t mind me; I think I’m funny sometimes!) Anyway, Christmas is my favorite time of year. In the month of December I can be found trekking through stores and browsing websites online to find the […]
