In our quest to hear God’s voice, I must address the elephant in the room who is blocking our ears - sin. Trust me, no one likes to talk about sin less than me! But when we know that God has forgiven us through our faith in Jesus, why are we still living in denial? … Continue reading The Elephant in the Room
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” John 14:26 As a child, I remember hearing that the Holy Spirit is like our conscience. I’m sure whoever said that meant well, … Continue reading The Missing Link (in Your Prayer Life)
My pastor once said, “God created us in His own image and ever since we have been trying to return the favor.” Most of us really don’t think that God is like us, but we sure do act like it. When we wonder if we will have enough, we underestimate His power and provision in … Continue reading The Abundance Shift

As children we were taught that it polite … Continue reading Do You Find it Hard to Receive?
If you know me well (or maybe even if you don’t!) you know I have a passion for the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). As soon as we meet, I am trying to figure out your “type.” Partly because I want to know how best to communicate with you and partly just because it’s fun! You … Continue reading Why Should I Take a Personality Assessment?
We have all been told at some point that we can’t make everyone happy. But, do we really believe that?

I did a … Continue reading ARE YOU MAKING EVERYONE HAPPY?
You have a sudden inspiration and wonder whether it is Divine. Now you have a decision to make: what do you do about it and when?
