I will be a Father to you, and you will be sons and daughters to Me, says the Lord Almighty.

Help Change a Life!

 I love sharing Compassion with y'all! Sweet, heartfelt stories like the one shared in this video grab my heart. And I'm pretty sure it will grab yours as well. Watch this sweet boy's story and see how Compassion came alongside them to help save another child's life. We aren't sponsoring to fill a need, we sponsor to invest in the life of a child. Share Jesus with a child today and help break the cycle of poverty in their life. Change and be changed through Compassion. I guarantee you will fall in love with this amazing organization just as I have. :)

Stand in Him...

 Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength.
-Ephesians 6:10, HCSB

 Immerse yourself in truth, so when the enemy tries to whisper the lies that say, "You can't do this. You aren't strong enough. No one believes in you," you can stand and say that You can do all things for you are covered in His strength! You are chosen and held by your Maker. He makes you righteous and pure.

 Have faith; hold it before you and let it surround you. Then, even though the enemy hurls arrows of fear, shame, pain, and failure intended to cripple you; the faith and trust that Christ died to redeem you, redeem your mistakes, and take hold of your past, present, and future can resound in your heart. Faith can dispell the fear and loosen the chains that hold you captive.

This video is one of the many, many reasons I love Compassion... Watch it and smile. And sponsor a child. You will change their life and your own. Sponsorship works. It's not about sending thirty-eight dollars a month. It's about building a relationship, pouring Jesus' love into their life. You get the chance to work alongside this incredible ministry and help them mold a little life. Compassion is not just a crutch to these kids and families in poverty. Compassion is not only trying to walk with the children through the poverty they live in; they are working to empower those children to break the cycle of poverty in their life and their community. And you can help them. Join me, join the millions of people just like you, and sponsor a child. It is the best decision ever.


Okay. I'm done. Maybe.

Letting Go and Loving Louder: 6 Things Learned in March

  March, you brought a downpour of mercy and grace. You unveiled new-found strength with delight. You, March, were a month of peace. You were a month of finding peace within the trials of living in a world that is hurting. You were a month of holding tightly to that peace, of being anchored in peace. You brought new realizations and welcome reminders. This month I learned...

one. Letting go of control is the most freeing thing. Ever.  How long did it take me to get to this place of complete trust and total surrender? Plenty long enough. It's a beautifully sweet place of peace because I know, I truly believe the Creator of my soul is holding me. I don't have to have everything figured out and I do not have to do it all.

I am the Pharisee.

  Hi y'all! I feel like I haven't been around in a while. It's been a busy few weeks. I've been trying to slow down in the midst of all the craziness that is life and trust me, it isn't easy for this girl. So far, it's been a month of letting go and finding peace. And yes, I'm writing a blog post at 12:00 at night. I saw Son of God tonight and everything that is in my heart needs somewhere to go. It's hard to put everything about this movie into words. I'm pouring out and sorting out my heart here.

Sometimes, I get so caught up in my own life. In my good life. At least I'm not like them. I'm not getting drunk and partying all night. I'm in church every Sunday and at youth group every week. I even read my Bible outside of church! I'm a pastor's daughter; I'm the good girl; I don't do the "bad things"; I don't curse; I'm better than them.
