Fear of Missing Out…

People will make emotional decisions when they feel like they might miss out on something. I encourage you to use wisdom and discernment when faced with big decisions. Pray about them, and listen for the voice of our Creator to guide you…

Gratitude…

There is always something to be grateful for. Think about your heartbeat, fresh air to breathe and food in your refrigerator. Focus on what you have, not what you lack…

Toxins…

We protect our children from poisonous cleaning supplies by restricting access to the cabinets in our homes. Why do we allow toxic people into our lives? Restrict their access to you. They will remain as they are, yet you will be better…

Speaking of Kindness…

The tongue is a laser sharp instrument. It can heal or it can hurt. Your choice, but I encourage you to return kind words to others, not stinging rebukes. Both of you will benefit…

Looks Aren’t Everything…

Every day, Facebook and Instagram are filled with pictures of people showing us how attractive they are. Pictures are filtered to hide lines, wrinkles and other imperfections. But I want to see more…I want to see into the heart of the person. Every face has a beautiful story behind it…

Our Future…

Today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders. We are failing them. In 2016, suicide became the #2 killer of kids. In 2020 a study revealed that 78% of students felt lonely. It’s ironic that so many kids could feel lonely. We live in the most technologically connected culture ever.

The solution? One thing we can do is make certain our children feel loved and accepted. Hold them accountable for their actions, but don’t let them feel unloved because they made a mistake or two.

We must turn this around, and fast. It begins with us…

Settle?

Pursue the dreams that ignite your life. Don’t allow the projections of others to cause you to settle for anything less. Work hard, stay humble, give something back to better our community, and make a difference…
