when you are the owner of a broken heart

Friend, today I am going to share from the heart one of the biggest lessons I have ever learned about brokenness.  My prayer is that the same God who is rebuilding the broken pieces with me will give you a glimpse of hope where you are feeling broken. Maybe you and I, we’re never meantContinue reading “when you are the owner of a broken heart”

finding your sweet spot

Getting to know yourself is the key to finding out what revs your motor. When a car is finely tuned with care by its mechanic, and is running on the right fuel, the ride is sweet. Not taking care of your engine will cause damage to your car, not to mention the wrong fuel canContinue reading “finding your sweet spot”

running on empty? time to fuel up on self care again

Feeling more than a wee bit fragile lately. I have been so busy, I haven’t taken the best care of myself… like I have been using regular versus the best quality gas. You can have a great car, and cause it to break down over time by giving it an inferior type of gas. TheContinue reading “running on empty? time to fuel up on self care again”

find rest…

We are all looking for that soft place to land upon when we fall. We tend to keep ourselves busy to distract ourselves from the fact something isn’t right. We all need rest.

And not knowing how things are going to look when the blitzContinue reading “Hello from the other side”

cover lover or lover of the Word?

I love getting a new version of the Bible. There is something holy and fresh to me about holding a brand new Bible. Opening the cover for the first time, and taking a peek at the insides. As a book lover and word crafter, I can appreciate a pretty cover, fantastic graphics or eye catchingContinue reading “cover lover or lover of the Word?”

what a Word

Words have the power to bless, uproot, encourage, surgically impact or curse. Sometimes all in the same day. And when words are both your primary love language and part of your job, words can pierce far beyond the speaker’s intention. There is One, however, who knows the power of words. He not only inspired theContinue reading “what a Word”

What kind of crackpot are you?

Years ago, a well known prophetic teacher spoke a word to me which has stuck with me through the hard times. Basically, it is sometimes hard being me because I don’t fit normal. And for years I struggled with that very feeling. Why am I not normal? Why do people look at me like IContinue reading “What kind of crackpot are you?”

what family looks like

Today is Family day here in Ontario, falling the day after Valentine’s. Which got me thinking about love and family. To me, there are three different types of family, which ideally represent the three main types of love: The family we are born into is meant to be our Agape love foundation. Agape love isContinue reading “what family looks like”
