2015 = Service. 2016 = Courage. 2017 = Redemption. 2018 = SHIFT. (Surrender/Humility/Inspire/Flourish/Trust) 2019 = Accelerate. 2020 = Expectation.

Avoid regret by standing your ground with lions

Male lions roar something fierce. They are loud and terrifying when they are on the hunt. Do you know what is more ferocious than a male lion? A lioness. The way the lions survive is they enclose their prey. When the prey hear the roar of the male, they will turn to run in fearContinue reading “Avoid regret by standing your ground with lions”

Confidence is a smart soldier.

“As a confidence coach, what would you say to yourself right now if this version of you were your client?” My therapist asked a great question a few weeks ago when I was riding the wave right out of confidence into arrogance. Two days later, I was getting pulled under. That’s when you know it’sContinue reading “Confidence is a smart soldier.”

COVID-19 and Confidence

Just in case you weren’t aware, the news of Coronavirus is taking over the world. Nobody who is alive today has ever seen anything like what we are experiencing as the human race right now. COVID-19 doesn’t care what country you’re from, who you worship, how much money or fame you have or who yourContinue reading “COVID-19 and Confidence”

The Lord prepares a table for me in the presence of my enemies.

About a year ago, I was right in the middle of a completely unfair circumstance. It was one of those rare moments in time when I actually didn’t do anything wrong, yet I was getting hit on every side. This wasn’t a TV show. It wasn’t a novel. There wasn’t some genius storyline behind theContinue reading “The Lord prepares a table for me in the presence of my enemies.”

Are you taking care of yourself well?

Living a well-balanced life takes work, friends. One of the very practical things I had to learn in the last few years is how to take care of myself. Everyone has their own ideas of what self-care looks like. Some will say it’s about sleep and exercise. Others say it is spending time in silenceContinue reading “Are you taking care of yourself well?”

Say yes one more time.

A few months back, I shared pieces of my story with fatherlessness (Abandoned and adopted. Twice. and Abuse lies.). I saved the hardest piece for today. It’s been five years since Bucky fell out of the sky. I spent my entire childhood begging God to be a daddy’s girl. When I was a little girl,Continue reading “Say yes one more time.”

Abuse Lies.

Last week, I posted a piece of my story about my struggle with feeling worthy after my biological and adoptive fathers both abandoned me. Today, I want to share more of that story. The pain and my struggle with feeling a father’s love didn’t end at my mom’s divorce in 1997. In fact, it gotContinue reading “Abuse Lies.”

Abandoned and adopted. Twice.

The single greatest thing I have learned that radically changed my life is that I now have confidence in who I am as a child of God. Not as a servant of man.

I didn’t learn that any faster than when I began to study the character of God, and remember His faithfulness. Our Heavenly Father does not break His promises. He never has and He never will. He does what He says He will do. Every single time. He is the same yesterday, today and forever

Legos and Shame

My life is really good. I have found that the more joy I experience, the harder Satan fights.┬áHe is louder than usual this week. He’s relentless. While God has done so much transformation in my heart in the last couple years, there’s still so much left to do. The shame runs deep. Most of myContinue reading “Legos and Shame”
