community: family by choice

I am very blessed in community. I know several people who feel like they are all alone in their circumstances or situations, and the reality is: often it’s due to your choices.

all access pass

image via Remade Ministries Over and over, I fail. His love for me remains, constant, solid, dependable. Unlike me. I am nowhere near perfect, inside or out, but I am no longer where I was when He found me. One thing has changed me for eternity: His love. And His love is a constant flowingContinue reading “all access pass”

armor up

God is stirring something in His daughters today….can you sense it? He is calling us, His Bride, to band together & intercede, cry out for the ones we love. The enemy strategy is to take us down, however he can. God defeats him by linking us together with His power & love, and strengthening usContinue reading “armor up”
