The Process Of Prayer

Prayer for me has taken a turn. Similarly to going through what I shared about song and worship, equal humbling and development is being unlocked through the process of prayer, shifting from being solely fixated on the prayer item, goal, or destination itself to also valuing the process. I’m thankful for the contrast of experiences that can lead to newfound need, understanding, trust, and appreciation. Meaning, on one side of things, in terms of prayer, I’ve experienced going through the motions. Not praying at all. Doubted it was even doing anything. Struggled with the effort while…

"What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?"  -Mark 8:36- What good is it to gain all things adulting, yet neglect the most important decision and gift of all? Our adulting needs continued spiritual growth. The quest shifts beyond just meeting life goals and navigating life chapters, pointing to and living for ourselves, to living as a light with purpose through life goals and chapters, growing closer and pointing others to the answer for hope and life. All the details of our precious life need a woven in Jesus.

Our Adulting Needs Jesus

Homemade Deodorizer Spray

Wouldn’t you rather have a homemade deodorizer spray on hand that not only smells amazing, but also delivers protective properties within the air of your home? One that doesn’t just mask odors, but actually neutralizes them? One that doesn’t leave you at the mercy of an over-magnified scent, but a personally-controlled one instead? One that isn’t accompanied by a slew of other added chemical-ridden ingredients, but 3 simple natural ones that gets the job done and gives you peace of mind? Similar to my homemade laundry soap and homemade…

Activation Of Song: The 4 Ps

What would happen in our life if we not only experienced the words of song, but the activation of song? The following lessons come from a place of struggle and being humbled taking my understanding and approach to worship, in terms of song and music, to a deeper level and unlocking the 4 Ps: Pathway, Position, Posture, and Power.  I’ve gone through the motions. Did the good deed. Enjoyed and participated as long as I was happy. Left it to last resort. Acknowledged words while fighting change. Connected and expressed yet prioritized self. When I discovered I struggled…

Freedom In The Journey

Our layers are as good and nourished as the various things pouring into them. Encouragement from a dear friend is just that: Remember YOU and your happiness. Sometimes we get so caught up in worrying about what everyone else thinks or is doing and forget or neglect our own desires, needs, and goals.  Very true. There’s freedom in the journey. We only get one shot at this life – in work, in play, in love, in faith, in dreams, and in health. Our personal choices matter. Make them count. Everyone gets this opportunity to live these things out…

In And Out Of Seasons

You don’t have to complete a journey or season to have a testimony. You can have one while walking the journey and living out the season. There’s value and opportunity in the stage you’re in, not just when it’s over…

Homemade Hand Soap

Maybe you love trying new hand soaps like I do. The different scents. The foam and non-foam versions. Their varying containers. But maybe you’re also like me and prefer a cleaner alternative. Perhaps making your own homemade hand soap has remained just a thought. An attractive dispenser sounds appealing to merge with home decor that you can use and reuse – and without those less flattering store-packaged stickers. I’m here to share a simple blend proving a DIY creation can be that easy, moving your thought into motion. I’ll include some reasons…

The Good In Hard

Social Media Detox

It doesn’t take long to find detox suggestions for health reasons. Restoring and resetting our health makes sense and is a good thing. Why not extend the detox or reset to other areas of life like a social media detox or a digital detox? What do we have to lose?  Or better yet, what can we possibly gain?   What if those very things about social media that are important to us need less of us or a different us in order to get the best of us?   Detoxes and resets both take and give things in…
