We Need More Leaders Like This

inspiration Mar 30, 2024

Kudos to Baylor President Dr. Linda Livingstone for boldly speaking truth and sharing a powerful witness this week to the many in her realm of influence.

Linda, a dear friend of ours since the 1980's, is courageously working amidst the adversity of this dark world and all it's pressures to preserve the Christian mission of a major university (no small job, right?)

Lord, bless Linda Livingstone and all the others standing up each day for what is right and good so that our children might have the opportunity to walk in your Truth.

How can you take a stand for the Lord in your realm of influence? What is one change you could make this week, even if it is small?

A Blessing and Little Song for You

I pray this new song, written and recorded by Taylor Stull, will refresh your spirit and soul as you look to the Lord.  

(By the way, if your kids hear this song, you may be hearing them sing it the rest of the day! It seems to have that effect.) :)  


Taylor shares:   

"This little song is now spreading its wings & how I hope it soars!  

Psalm 24. 'Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? Those who have clean hands and pure hearts.'  

With every step, I come to the knowledge that anywhere with Jesus is safe.  

The more I let him cleanse me.

Purify me.

The more I experience him.  

Take me on the mountain.

Or take me to your riverside.

Mountain high.

Valley low.

Anywhere you want to go…..  

Just change me as we walk together.  

When I hear this song, I feel like I’m soaring high above the clouds.

Kissing the tops of streams & running through open...

A Video Peek into Coach Mom Live 2024

faith inspiration parenting Mar 16, 2024

I'm still rejoicing over how the Lord met us in such a powerful way at the Coach Mom Live Retreat in Phoenix a few weekends ago.

I so appreciate everyone who shared their talents to make it such a special weekend.

My daughter Mari made this video showing highlights from the weekend, which includes some of the moms sharing what the time meant to them.

Again, one of the most powerful moments this year was the time the foster and adoptive moms shared their stories with each other.

Where to go from here...

I am excited to continue the love and support by opening the doors to Truth Mom Tribe, a community for honest, free, and fun foster and adoptive living.

If you are a foster or adoptive mom, or seek to know how best to support your foster and adoptive mom friends, I hope you will consider joining the Truth Mom Tribe!

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… 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...
