Many of us, myself included, were never taught how to regulate our emotions. That’s why I love the Inside Out Movies. Pixar‘s creators take complex subjects like emotions, brain development, and mental health, making them easy to grasp and understand in Inside Out One and Two.  While there is still so much for us to learn about the human brain, I think it’s safe to say that no matter what, your emotions will not go away anytime soon—even if you... Read more

I will be completely honest: Some days, trusting God is a choice. I choose to trust God because all of my other options are much scarier and more depressing. However, trusting God has often brought me peace when I finally decide to make that choice. But why is it so difficult to choose to have faith and not doubt? Many fears and other emotions can surround your inability to “let go and let God.” So, how do you trust God... Read more

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than fear.” ― Franklin D. Roosevelt The story of Esther is one of my favorite books in the Bible, so much so that I named my cat Esther. I can’t say the Book of Esther has been completely life-changing for me. However, the reminder of Esther’s courage and faith inspires me in my daily walk with God. Taking the time to study the... Read more

“You’ll understand when you become a parent.” – Dad’s Everywhere This year, I think we should start our Father’s Day Cards like this: Dad, you were right. I have kids now, and I am sorry for being a normal, rebellious teenager with a terrible attitude and inability to see that I was wrong and you were right. I’m sorry for thinking I was smarter than you when I was only 14 and for always being mad at you. I am... Read more

Powerful women are all around you, but they might not look like you’d expect. In the Bible, the most powerful women were often quiet and humble and never claimed to have all the answers.

Continue reading and get inspired by seven powerful women in the Bible who found their purpose. God’s Word... Read more

Mother Teresa once said, “If we want to love, we must learn how to forgive.” Forgiveness and unfailing love are at the very core of God’s being. God’s love knows no bounds, and He has gone to great lengths to forgive us. Forgiveness is not easy, and the wounds of some offenses are deep and hard to let go of. The offenses can often be reciprocated, and the offense only worsens and festers because it is too painful to let... Read more

I am not here to convince you that miracles exist. If I try to convince you to believe in miracles, then that defeats the point. Miracles are built on the foundation of faith. If you do not believe that miracles are possible, I cannot convince you otherwise. If a miracle or healing occurs and you don’t believe in it, you will find a way to discredit it. Today, I will not try to convince you. Instead, I will share my... Read more

As a mom, living the full life doesn’t take much, but it might take a lot out of you. I believe motherhood is one of the most challenging jobs on the planet. I don’t know how I could continue on the journey of motherhood without God’s word and His promises. Many Bible verses about moms are encouraging and designed to give you hope during the wonderful ride of motherhood.  That said, Mother’s Day can be one of the hardest days... Read more

I was lying on the couch with my weighted blanket pressing against my body. It felt like those protective X-ray aprons the dentist puts over you before they take pictures of your teeth. My new weighted blanket was like a trusted friend to whom I didn’t have to talk. I could lie there and be sad, which was great because I didn’t want to tell anyone what I was going through. It was a very depressing and dark circumstance, and... Read more

“Do you trust yourself?” my therapist asked me as I started telling her about some issues I was struggling with. Trust has always been a problem for me. From freely trusting anyone who walked into the room and immediately becoming friends—to not trusting the people closest to me—my thoughts and feelings on the subject often tossed me “to and fro” with each new suspicious twitch of the eye or the story someone told me that “didn’t add up” or make... Read more
