I’m not much of a fisherwoman in my own right. I’ve never baited my own hook and stood on the lakeshore with my line in the water. It’s just not something that ever appealed to me. It could be because as a young girl my Dad and my Uncle shared ownership in a fishing boat. Read More

What does it really mean to be anxious for nothing?

Stop worrying! You are not accomplishing anything constantly worrying. I can’t tell you how many times in my life I’ve heard those words.

You burned your finger on the flat-iron, dropped your phone on the way to the car, and spilled your lunch on your favorite blouse. How on earth can you proclaim joy after a morning like that? Joy isn’t about what has happened to you. Joy is a way of thinking and living. Joy is a Read More

You are Worthy!

Women often struggle with lack of self-worth and self-esteem. They see the Proverbs 31 Wife as something unachievable and unrealistic.

Grabbing me and pulling me deeper into the message.  A message from God penned by the Apostle Paul nearly 1960 years ago. A message of concern; a message of tremendous hope.
