A Simple Prayer, God Sent an Eagle

faith Jan 20, 2024

Do you ever feel like God isn't hearing your prayers?

I sat today with a friend and we recounted some of our best answered prayer moments, and it was so spiritually encouraging and uplifting.

What did all of these "best" answered prayer moments have in common? There was always some difficulty, risk or peril...but God.

What in your life do you need God's intervention in?

Always pray and never lose heart. (Luke 18:1)

Click here and take in this 30-second astounding testimony springing from a simple sincere prayer.

Then take a moment to lift up your heart to the Lord, asking Him for intervention in your life or family.

Trust the promise that as you pray according to HIs will, He hears you. And that you have what you have asked. (1 John 5:14)

I'm praying right now that as you pray a sincere prayer, the Lord will show you

  • He loves you
  • He sees you
  • He hears you

Please let me know if you end up with a cool story to share!

Barbara O’Neill Flu Bomb Home Remedy

health parenting recipes Dec 07, 2023

"It will knock out most sicknesses in three days," according to health teacher Barbara O'Neill, when she talks about her "flu bomb" recipe. 

This natural remedy, recommended by Barbara O'Neill, provides the body with the environment it needs to heal, without the negative side effects that come with pharmaceutical drugs. (It's also cost-effective!)

Each ingredient in this recipe serves a specific purpose in promoting healing within the body.

  • Garlic, a "natural antibiotic" also helps with boosting the immune system. (One study cited that one clove of garlic is 6x more potent than the antibiotic Tetracycline) It's also anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-yeast.
  • Ginger has anti-inflammaory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties and is best known to help reduce nausea.

Police Warn Parents: Beware of iPhone’s New ‘NameDrop’ Feature

parenting Dec 02, 2023

According to the Epoch Times, multiple U.S. police departments issued alerts about a new iPhone feature that allows sharing contact info and images wirelessly between two closely held devices, warning it could put children and other vulnerable individuals at risk.

“If you have an iPhone and have done the recent iOS 17 update, they’ve installed a feature called NameDrop. This feature allows you to easily share contact information and photos to another iPhone by just holding the phones close together,” the Middletown Division of Police, Ohio, said in a Nov. 26 Facebook post. “PARENTS: Don’t forget to change these settings on your child’s phone to help keep them safe as well!”

“With this feature enabled, anyone can place their phone next to yours (or your child’s phone) and automatically receive their contact information to include their picture, phone number, email address, and more, with a tap of your unlocked...

Gratitude: The #1 Life-changing Virtue

faith inspiration Nov 23, 2023

Happy Thanksgiving!

May all our days be filled with gratitude and thanksgiving.

Even science proves that it has a great impact on one's mental and emotional health.

Some thoughts on thanksgiving that I journaled this last week from a compilation of sermons by Bill Johnson:

  • Thankfulness is an expression of trust that keeps us conscious of the Presence of God
  • Thanksgiving enables us to take what the enemy meant for evil and transfer it into to the hands of God, knowing that He is causing all things to work together for our good.
  • When we are thankful, we sanitize our touch and involvement in the matters our our lives. It removes the remaining "flesh influence" that defiles what God might do.
  • Thankfulness sanctifies.
  • When I am thankful, everything in my life is usable to God.
  • Thankfulness is an automatic position of humility, the #1 virtue that changes a person's life.
  • Thankfulness can change the nature of a family line

I am thank God for the privilege of being...

7 Things to Do Now, In Fearful Times

faith parenting Nov 09, 2023

God flew me all the way to Africa and back, 20 checkpoints each way, with an airline ticket that had the wrong LAST NAME. Yep…it was a miracle! 

I only got detained 3 times. Each time they came and profusely apologized, letting me pass through without speaking a word on my behalf!

I love to share my most exciting God stories. But I realize they all have one thing in common: a certain degree of peril

The idea of living out more God miracles sounds amazing… but...today just never seems like a convenient time….

Right now, we all stand in a unique time ourselves…

War, threats of organized terrorist groups on our own soil who have entered through our open borders, political unrest, bank closures, and food chain disruptions all threaten our sense of peace.

But I encourage you to not be dismayed or discouraged.

One thing we know from the past: The biggest challenges are God's biggest opportunities to show...

Don't Miss This Powerful Movie on Oct. 31

faith Oct 28, 2023

Have you heard about After Death, a new movie by the makers of The Chosen and Sound of Freedom?

The movie tells the stories of 14 people who clinically died, and came back to tell about it.

Producer Stephen Gray said that out of the thousands of stories they looked through in the making of this movie, they were amazed to find 40 similar testimonial data points across these people of all sorts of religious backgrounds.

For us, watching After Death will be a great alternative activity on Oct. 31...dinner and a movie!

(If you are wondering why we choose to do alternate activities on Oct. 31, here you can find a video of me explaining 7 questions we answered to make that decision.)

Opening weekend is such a powerful time to watch a film, especially for independent films like After Death. The more people come out for it, the longer the movie will be shown. So let's show up on Oct. 31!

An Urgent Call to Prayer

faith Oct 13, 2023

We are living in times that we cannot risk prayerlessness.

 WHAT IS GOING ON?

This week it was reported that Israel was barbarically attacked by the Islamic terrorist organization Hamas. Not just going for the military, but a ruthless attack -- killing grandmothers, families, and even infants.

"There have been about 1,200 Israelis that have been butchered by Hamas terrorists. That is the equivalent to around 30,000 or 40,000 Americans, if you adjust for population.” said Karys Rhea, a fellow with the Jewish Leadership Project.

Rhea said they suffered the bloodiest day for the Jewish people since the Holocaust.

WHAT ABOUT FRIDAY, OCT. 13, TAKES THE CONFLICT UP A LEVEL?

Khaled Mashal, a leader and founding member of the Islamic terror group Hamas, has called for a global Day of Rage on Friday, saying “this is the time for Jihad,” according to American Greatness.

Mashal called all Muslims "to show anger,...

Your Husband Will Treat You Like a Queen

marriage Oct 07, 2023

Would you like to be treated royally in your marriage?

Treat your husband like a king and eventually he will treat you like a queen! 

(Of course I can't guarantee this, but I can say that this will greatly increase the probability!) :)

As women we can be very good at harping on husbands’ faults and failures, but that only leads to discontent and distance in marriage.

Yelling, nagging, and belittling are disrespectful and ineffective.

But respect is everything.

Last weekend at a women's conference in Sedona, AZ, I led a breakout and shared "The Daughter of the King's Guide to Being Treated Royally", which includes 8 action steps.

Catch that video teaching here if you'd like to transform your marriage.

A Few Minutes Each Day to Do This: Game Changer

faith Sep 30, 2023

A little more than a year ago I started a new and powerful habit: taking communion daily.

If you've been walking with me for very long, you probably have picked up on my attitude about how I want to live. I once heard someone say, "When my alarm clock goes off, I want the devil to say, 'Oh no, she's up again!'"

Bingo.

This daily communion addition I believe has been powerful and, if you have received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, I want to encourage you to consider doing the same.

If we didn't understand before that we are in a daily battle between good and evil, I'm pretty sure we all realize that at this point in history.

It's fierce and this is no time to be complacent.

In the shakings, our families need us to fight for them.

A reminder of where our absolute victory in this battle we are in is found in this verse:

“They overcame him [the accuser of the brethren] by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their...
