Way To Go Award – Jennifer Livingston

I saw a few posts with this video of  CBS WKBT News Anchor, Jennifer Livingston, responding to email about being fat, so I watched it and then cheered!   It made me think about the posts I made recently about being an example and not looking at our outward appearance.  Yes, we KNOW we are over […]

Mirror Broken Mirror

And just like that, the mirror slid from the top of my makeup case and crashed onto the tile floor.  Shattered, Broken, Shiny pieces…Some so tiny, others large chunks. I cleaned up the mess and went on about my day but God kept whispering to take a look at that broken mirror. Ok, God, I […]

Help me decide

I need your help!!  I have to choose a picture to send in with my bio for the statewide women’s ministry page and I can’t decide between these two… Please leave a comment with which one you think I should use.  I will tally the votes and send in the “winner” by Thursday so don’t […]

Healthier Living

The aroma of “fair foods” at Celebrate Munford today made it very difficult to stick to my healthy eating plan but I did it.  You know what I am talking about…funnel cakes, corn dogs, cotton candy, BBQ. All things delicious but definitely NOT nutritious. I was there working the Junior Auxiliary booth and encouraging kids to […]

A little time away

Last week I was going through my calendar and saw that, like always, I had something scheduled every night…except for once, I had a night that had nothing written. SO, to keep me from putting something there, I wrote “Rest & Rejuvenate”.  I made an appointment for some ME time.  If anyone called and asked […]

YOU shall teach

This morning during my coffee with the King I read this verse in Deuteronomy (Deut. 6:7) You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. It reminded me that […]

Just Another Statistic

This morning I was thinking about all of the statistics we hear and about how I don’t want to be just another statistic. You know the ones: 50% of marriages end in divorce 43% of people who marry young divorce within 15 years 66% of married people whose parents are divorced end up divorced also […]

March Makeover – Tracking Food

One of the things I want to accomplish with the March Makeover is to get myself back on track with my weight loss goal and hopefully encourage others in their journey so they can motivate me…it is a wonderful accountability circle!  I find that when I actually keep track of what is going into my […]

Go For It!

“God, are you sure this is what you want me to do?  I don’t know how. Surely you have the wrong woman! I can’t do that.” About 14 years ago, during a church service, God called me into ministry. My response was pretty much the same as the one above! But my momma always told […]

Issues of the Heart

Lately, there have been a lot of “heart issues” in my family… It all started a few months ago when my pediatrician noticed that my 14 year old son’s blood pressure was elevated. She decided to keep an eye on it, told us to watch his sodium, and had him come in every few weeks […]
