I’m married to an agnostic – What God has taught me in the process

By | April 29th, 2017|My Heart Journey|3 Comments

My husband is agnostic. There, I’ve said it out loud for the whole world to know. My husband went from being Christian to agnostic. I didn’t ask for this to happen nor did I think I would end up loving the Lord without my husband. For some reason, God has permitted me to be in [...]

Self-awareness plays a role in discernment

By | November 21st, 2016|My Heart Journey, Revelations and Encounters|14 Comments

There comes a time when we awaken to the identity that God has given us as his children. This identity grows deeper as he takes us on a journey of greater self-awareness and intimacy with him. Why do I use the word self-awareness? I don't hold the view that self-awareness means selfish or prideful. In [...]

I don't remember the exact time or date when God showed me the root cause of my need to be perfect and perform. In that moment, time seemed to stand still.  All I heard was his voice saying "you fear rejection". Truth penetrated into my spirit in one of those Ah Huh moments. Light flooded [...]

Love is messy and forgiveness keeps you going

By | November 1st, 2016|My Heart Journey, Relationships|8 Comments

It happened again. Someone said something in the wrong tone of voice and it resulted in a ripple effect of hurt feelings, anger, and disconnect. It didn't matter what was said, what mattered was that we got disconnected from each other because of miscommunication, misunderstanding, and a myriad of outside pressures jabbing away at our [...]

Whose responsibility is it? God’s or mine?

By | October 17th, 2016|My Heart Journey|9 Comments

Responsibility is defined by as the state or fact of being responsible, answerable, or accountable for something within one's power, control, or management. Sometimes I think that, as people, we are so used to taking on responsibility we've forgotten who is actually responsible. Our beautiful hearts have good intentions.

6 Ways to change your home’s spiritual atmosphere

By | October 10th, 2016|My Heart Journey, Revelations and Encounters|8 Comments

I couldn't figure it out. The boys were behaving highly disrespectful. The amount of high pitched shouting, screaming and talking that I have come to expect as normal when you have three boys in your home seemed to be extreme. Something was off. My husband was not in a great place either. Technology was failing [...]

Time with God in a busy life

By | September 26th, 2016|My Heart Journey|14 Comments

In the midst of it all, God asks us to love unconditionally, lavish respect, and bring peace to our homes. Often this means we need to come to Jesus daily to drink [...]

Small acts of kindness

Beautiful colored ribbons and scarves waved around the front of our church hall. Young girls of all ages followed their mentor as they danced celebration and praise to Jesus yesterday during the worship service. My heart was moved speechless. What a beautiful celebration! You'd have thought I'd have reason to smile beaming smiles or have [...]

Fighting against doubt with faith

By | August 28th, 2016|My Heart Journey, Revelations and Encounters|4 Comments

Yeah, not yet in a weekly rhythm of blogging my heart journey. At some point, I hope it will stabilize. I'm not sure how to consistently blog my heart journey when I find myself often allowing God to continue the work he started before writing about it. So let me ask you your thoughts - [...]

  Choices. I haven't written for over a week now because I have had a ton of deadlines to meet not to mention a clingy toddler and my middle boy's fourth birthday party. Yeah. Pretty busy past week. I have had to make a string of choices this week like we all do every moment [...]
