Out of Our Pain, Our Purpose Is Born

I've used that quote each time I've had the opportunity to speak in the last 10 years ...it speaks of redemption to me. In the midst of pain it's difficult to see or feel anything except for pain. As you find relief from your past and you begin to look back it becomes...

Love Never Dies…

"Love never dies... You cannot put it in a casket and bury it" T.D.Jakes I love that line! Love is a powerful force that originates with God who was and is and always will be... Since love is found in the one who created us then there is no end to it. The word love is...

Your Purpose, Your Treasure

We all look for treasures.  Sometimes it's as small as a piece of jewelry, a letter written by someone we love, or a family heirloom that's been lost over time. Treasure - something that is very significant to us. We look for the treasure because we believe if we find...

Fulfilling Your Visions

Jesus, Others, & Yourself

Jesus first; Others next; Yourself last. Doesn't sound like a 21st century statement, right? Actually, it's a statement my mother would make to all 8 of her children on a daily basis.  I suppose with eight of us living, working, and playing together this idiom was...

A Trouble Free Heart

A heart that is free is a heart at peace.  Peace of heart is an invisible force, but is manifested in our behaviors. So, how do we face trouble and maintain our peace? We all have our share of troubles and how we respond to troubles is the indicator of the condition...

Love & Miracles

I'm counting my blessings, especially after an experience I had on Friday.  I took a walk to downtown Sarasota – it was a beautiful, balmy, perfect Florida kind of day.  I was walking along aimlessly enjoying the shops, the people… and noticed quite a few homeless...

Simple Does Not Mean Easy

When I think of the simplicity of my lifestyle growing up as a kid on an Amish farm... I smile.  Our life was simple, safe, and secure, but it was never easy. I've always enjoyed the more simple things in life, I guess because I grew up that way.  My mom and dad never...

Surrender Leaves You Speechless

My experience with surrender in the last three years has truly left me "speechless".  In December of 2013, we moved away from ALL of our familiar surroundings, family, and friends in Lancaster County, PA.  In many ways, our move to Texas felt like a death of sorts.  I...

The Poison of Non-Forgiveness

The truth is... NOT forgiving makes ME die a little more each day.   Most of us have said these lines at some point in our life's experience with hurt and pain...   1. They were wrong... 2. I could never forgive them... 3. I can never condone what they did... 4. What...

The Enemies Within & Without

Peace within creates a presence you carry.  When we are in a constant struggle within our mind and heart, our presence carries with it a countenance of sadness, depression, or anger.  The struggles that make your "mind race" and your "belly hurt" are an indication...

Character Is Built Daily

Many of us want quick results and we wish we were able to be more mature, more gentle, more loving, and be a person of integrity more often than we are.  We want to be able to react and respond to life in mature ways and yet we keep "missing the mark". When our...
