I can’t remember when I started doing this, but I guess several years ago I began asking God to give me a word for each year, something to focus on, something prophetic that He wanted to speak over my life. In 2016, my word was “family.” That’s when we met Jessica and Stephanie and began… Read More Words
I’m sitting in my office pondering the things of God. November is Orphan Awareness Month. There are so many issues that have a month dedicated to awareness and action. Obviously, orphan awareness is close to my heart. My husband, Danny, and I always knew we would want to one day adopt children. We saw it… Read More Orphan Awareness Month
So much is unsettled in the world. Texas will be feeling the effects from Hurricane Harvey for a long time to come. Hurricane Irma will soon be bearing down on the state of Florida, where many of my friends are seriously stuck. The eastern coastline is at risk. I live in Upstate, SC, and our… Read More The Waves and Wind Still Know His Name
Rise Up, O Woman, Rise Up! We are dreamers. Believers. Worshipers. Dare devils. Warriors. We have been gifted by the Almighty. It’s us He’s entrusted with God-breathed life. We are the mothers. Raising our children in the fear and wonder of the Lord. Daughters. Sisters. We are chosen to make a mark on our world.… Read More Rise Up, O Woman, Rise Up!
It’s not a new song. It’s not an original song. But it has completely wrecked me. “Your love is proud to be seen with me.” How could this be? I’m not even proud to be seen with myself most days. There is a completeness to the Father’s love for us. 1 John 3:1-3 in the… Read More “Your Love is Proud to be Seen with Me.”
My husband, Danny, and I have 4 daughters. That’s right! Four girls! Two of those girls were born naturally through our union as husband and wife. The other two came to us from foster care. (I’ll share more of that story at a later date). We did things quite backwards with regards to the status… Read More Everything is Backwards
Recently, I felt the call to begin to write the songs that God was placing in my heart. I then called upon my friend, Dave Phillips, for help. Together, we’ve written several songs, and we have a few more in the works. What a cathartic process! This Sunday, we will unveil one of the songs… Read More I AM
35 feels like… Purple hair, don’t care. Confidence. Maturity. Wonder. Questioning. Anything is possible. Health. Love. FREEDOM. Realizing who my Daddy is. The best friendships ever. Servanthood. Motherhood. Falling in love over and over again. Self-actualization. Community. On this, the 35th year of my life, I am amazed at what I have learned, what I’ve… Read More This is 35.
This afternoon sitting on my balcony looking over Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant, SC, I feel the presence of the Lord. Here, on the water, is where I find a sense of complete peace. In the wind I feel the Holy Spirit’s way. Here in the simplicity and quiet, my mind is open to hear… Read More After the Rain
Life thus far. I’m trying to imagine all of the things I’ve experienced, from the deepest, dark sadness to the mountain tops filled with amazing sunrises and sunsets. One thing I know for sure is that wherever I’ve gone, I’ve not been alone. As a child, in the middle of the night, crying myself… Read More Thus Far…
