I have found the one whom my soul loves.

The one whom my soul loves… After a year of planning, hoping, and dreaming, the day had finally arrived. She in her mother’s wedding dress of Chantilly lace and he in his shiny black tuxedo were just babies at the ages of 19 and 20. They sang love songs and made vows of promise and love and death. All of the anticipation had come to one final conclusion of everlasting love. Then after, they walked…

When we live in the dark, we tend to hide all of our faults, failures, fears and flaws but if we live in the light we can bring them into the open and admit who we truly are. When this happens, friendships flourish.

  Women and friendship go hand in hand don’t they? I mean when we speak about friendship in terms of gender, more than likely it involves females and the two words are synonymous with one another.

Friendship is just hard sometimes, isn’t it? Do you ever just long for real, authentic friendships?

I have some really great friends who speak life in to me. One in particular is only a little over half my age. She is wise, gifted and talented in areas that I am certainly less than. She sent me a text the other day and told me that I should write a series about friendship. This is exactly what she said- “I believe you are the perfect person to teach about Godly friendships.

Should you tell you story? This article gives you some things the think about before you start.

It’s been 4 months since I told my story publicly on this blog. Of course Jesus has never left my side, but that doesn’t mean it’s been a breeze. I’ve received a plethora {I really like that word.:-)} of reactions, some good, some not so good and some bad. I’m so proud of you. You’re so courageous. You’re so strong. You disgust me. How could you do something so evil? Now I know why God…

Are you struggling to forgive in marriage? It's not easy, but it CAN BE POSSIBLE with God! Only God can help you forgive when you are struggling,

It's too deep and no matter how hard you try to climb out, you just can't make your way to the top. I'm not sure what it is that has caused your fall. Maybe you've given way to an addiction. Maybe you've said some extremely hurtful words to a friend. You've found yourself lying to your spouse. Maybe you yelled at your toddler 5 times yesterday.

Dear sweet sister, first of all I want you to know you’re not alone. You’ve fallen, and you’ve fallen hard. Maybe you’ve fallen so many times there’s just no hope anymore. You try to pick yourself up but it’s exhausting. I know you’re tired. I know you’re weary. The days seem long. The nights seem longer. There’s no air and your suffocating. The hole that you’ve gotten yourself in to is too deep. It’s too…
