Yesterday, I received a message at my ministry page which said, “There is no silver lining on Facebook.” At first, I said to myself, “Oh, no! I let down my readers… again.” I thought how my life doesn’t always allow for my enthusiasm about God’s truth, to be shared the way I planned. God gives … Continue reading Are We Failing to See THE SILVER LINING in Our “Failures?”
America has become a nation of entitlement, no longer wishing to work for wages. Since when did God allow us to sit back and wait for things to be handed to us on a silver platter? Since… never. Why is this selfish attitude being supported by the very people who worked so hard to get … Continue reading Hard Work Brings the Blessings… NOT Entitlement!
Ever been told to “Let it go?” We heard the song for one whole summer after practically every little girl in America had seen the Walt Disney movie; Frozen.

Fathers are meant to love, guide, encourage, protect, teach, comfort, and lead us. So what happens when a father doesn’t fulfill his responsibilities? Emptiness happens. Depression happens. Doubt happens. Confusion happens. Children lose their way. A neglectful father leaves his children to fend for themselves. They may have to fend for food or clothing, or … Continue reading When You Have an Absent, Abusive, or Abandoning Father… God Cares

It was apparently the last straw; the one that broke the camel’s … Continue reading When the Tables are Turned, is it Abuse… or Righteous Anger?
Today is my birthday, and I’m thankful to God for giving me life, and offering me the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. Because Jesus lives in me, The Holy Spirit changes me every year, molding me to become more like Jesus. When you’re a Christian, getting older is a reason to celebrate, for we … Continue reading God is The Potter

Some have been abandoned or abused by their mothers, and are no longer a part of each other’s lives. Some have never known their mothers. … Continue reading 15 Ways to have a Blessed Mother’s Day Even if Family is Not There
Two Cocoons When I see your tiny red naked bodies clad only in diapers the size of a Kleenex, I think that nothing is more fragile, and you’re just like the wings of a butterfly. While one of you cries out like a hungry kitten, the other cries out like a bleating sheep. It … Continue reading Two Cocoons: a Love Poem… My Premature Twins on their Teeny Tiny Miracle Journey
Come on, Christian Believers… Rise up! You have to make a CHOICE! You can NOT serve two masters! Either you’re with JESUS all the way, or not at all! You can’t say you’re a Christian, and then tell other people it’s okay to worship whomever and however they choose! That’s NOT witnessing! That is denying … Continue reading Jesus is Your ONE WAY Ticket to Heaven! Don’t Deny Him! Get on Board!
