God connects with each one of us personally. We are each unique in how we see the world and, being divinely sensitive to our needs, He chooses to connect with us by speaking our own personal love language. How has He connected with you? You may have heard the perfect song at the right time or seen a rainbow or bird that held some significance. Perhaps God repeated a message through multiple… Read More

Some days I would rather be right than be like Jesus. There, I said it. And even if you weren’t thinking it, I’m sure you’ve felt this way before. If you’re human (and I’m pretty sure you are), then at one time or another you’ve felt you are right. It’s natural to feel your opinion is right, your perspective is right, your facts are right, and your approach to problem solving is… Read More

It’s here. The season I dread more than any other: wedding season. Wedding season is trigger season for a lot of single folks like me. Like many others, I spent my adolescence and young adulthood telling myself lies about love. Lies like these for example: Lie #1 – You need a boyfriend to prove you are loveable. Lie #2 – Only romantic attention will make me feel whole and confident. Lie #3… Read More

There was a young bride who sat in her room day after day trying to make her wedding dress. She designed it herself, but no matter how many times she tried, she could not make it perfect. In fact, she was not coming close to what she wanted. Eventually, she called the dressmaker and asked him to come and do what he could to help. She was embarrassed to call him because… Read More

There are moments in your life that becomes fixed markers along the timeline. Afterward, time is marked as “before” and “after” that moment. For me, one such moment came in 2010 on the street near my home in NJ. If you know me even a little bit you probably already know that 1) I was born with only part of my right arm and 2) I hate running. These things are important… Read More

It was there again this morning. Just when I thought it was gone. Just when I thought I might be free of it forever; my old friend despair showed up even before I opened my eyes. In the years when I struggled with alcohol and anxiety, despair was never far from my thoughts. Sometimes it was a nagging tug at my back, and other times a heavy, led blanket. It was so… Read More

Recently I was driving home from a Bible study praising God for the wonderful sunset and friends and women He has brought into my life, when out of the blue a thought struck me: What if that joke I told was actually offensive? Suddenly the beautiful sunset I was admiring seemed far away and irrelevant. I could feel that familiar knot of shame growing in my chest. My stomach felt queasy as… Read More

Some days are like a gift from heaven. The sun is shining on your way out the door, you catch every green light on the way to work, and even though you forgot your lunch at home, a vendor suddenly wants to take you to lunch to say “thank you” for your business. Life is basically handed to you on a chocolate platter. But other days just suck. You step in a… Read More

God has been speaking to me about my journey amidst the snow and the cold in this season. He is asking me to see my struggles through His point of view. The content of His message is actually the repetition of a talk He has given to me many times over. The amazing thing is, each time He reminds me, it has a new layer of meaning. And a new area of… Read More

The act of comparison can build up your confidence or completely wreck your day/month/year. It took me a long time to discover I was using my comparison tools all wrong. I spent years comparing myself to others when really I should have kept my comparisons to myself. I don’t mean you should silently make comparisons in your head. Rather it is healthier to focus on comparing your current self with your previous… Read More
