Right Now

Serving is something we are all asked to do. It’s a way of showing active worship to God.  He expects it of us. We are to serve Him, by serving others.  “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to … More Right Now

Tell of Him

I’ve been a concert goer for the last several years, and have loved every second of it. The one I attended last night was different though. It wasn’t meant to be a concert, but instead a night of worship with an arena full of God’s people.  Music has always spoken to me. It’s been an … More Tell of Him

Rudder Problems

I haven’t ever given any thought to what steers a boat, until tonight. I’ve never been on a cruise ship, but the size of those boats are incomparable to other types of transportation.  These ships are massive, and carry hundreds to thousands of people to exotic locations all over. Yet the thing that controls the … More Rudder Problems

Hang the Pot

Ok seriously, I have to be real with y’all. I am not the tallest person on earth, in case you didn’t already know. I’m average I suppose, if there IS an average, but definitely am a bit vertically challenged.  As you can imagine, this causes me some issues every now and then. I struggle to … More Hang the Pot

I’m Not Ashamed

I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, “I’m Not Ashamed,” about Rachel Joy Scott from the Columbine Shooting, but spoiler alert, that’s what this blog is about in honor of today being April 20th. I knew the movie would be emotional, because I know how heartbreaking the Columbine shooting was. What I found was … More I’m Not Ashamed


I was browsing through my Spotify playlist a while ago, and I ran across an old hymn called, “I Stand Amazed.” I decided to play the song and listen to the words. Wow.  Honestly, I don’t think I have ever actually paid that much attention to what I was singing. I mean, they are far … More Unclean

Turn or Burn

I just got home from a weekend trip to a conference called Leadership Training for Christ (LTC). My church has been a part of this for quite some time now, and this was my 3rd event to coach drama at. The event is a total blast, and exhausting nonetheless, but the lessons the kids involved … More Turn or Burn

Smaller is Better

Everything in life revolves around relationships. Everything.  We have relationships with co-workers, family members, spouses, friends, church family, etc. The list goes on forever.  The level of the relationship may vary, but regardless, they’re all an important part of the balance of our lives. “Someone to tell it to is one of the fundamental needs … More Smaller is Better

Spiritual Slump

Have you ever been in a spiritual slump? I sure have.  We get stuck. We get distracted, drug down, and overwhelmed by the world, and it leaves us in a spiritual stand-still. God seems distant at times, and we don’t know how to get ourselves out of the stagnant water we are wallowing in. Times … More Spiritual Slump


Recently, I had a post pop up on my Facebook “memories” and it has been eating at me ever since. This is what the post said: We are not here to make a difference. We are here to make the world different. – Don McLaughlin Don is the preaching minister of a church in Atlanta, … More Different


Today is a blog of total transparency with you. I’ve been struggling with something recently, and after much prayer, I feel compelled to share it. So I hope you’ll stay with me through this post. I’ve attended the same church my entire life. The only time I didn’t was when I went through a rough … More Conflicted
