Happy Thanksgiving! You may or may not be surrounded by loved ones. If your not, I hope you know how much you are loved. God sees you when you feel invisible. Throughout the year, life happens. So much happens. We start a new job, quit a job, get a new car or the car dies … More An Attitude of Gratitude
It’s Monday… I went into today with a positive attitude. I was ready to conquer this Monday and not let it get the best of me. Slowly, inch my inch, I let little things creep in. One thing and then another. The “I can do this!” wall that I had built up was starting to … More Show Up!

When I began following Hearts of Gold Magazine on Instagram, I thought that there was no way that my writing would ever be good enough for them to want or use. Thankfully, they seem to like the words that God has given me to write because they … More Be the Change – Guest Post
“It’s raining. It’s pouring. The old man is snoring…” This morning, as the rain was sprinkling, I headed to my car with my umbrella in my hand, but the umbrella wasn’t open.

In October, it will be five years ago that I left all that I knew in New England and moved to TN. To say that first year was hard would be an understatement. My first apartment saw many tears. I didn’t feel brave. I felt the furthest thing from it. God used that time to … More Oh, So Lonely…God Where Are You?
