    Turn Your FRET into FAITH

    You are probably familiar with the story of Hannah, who had been barren, but earnestly wanted children. Peninnah had children but Hannah had none. I Samuel 1:6 (KJV) says, “And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the LORD had shut up her womb.“ We learn from this Bible verse that Hannah FRETTED about her barren situation, especially because of Peninnah. Do others make you FRET? Sometimes we FRET because we compare ourselves to others. We may feel like we’re doing something wrong since the Lord hasn’t blessed us in the same way. Or, we may FRET because others criticize or hound us about our…

    7 Tips on How to Make Better Decisions

    Doesn’t it seem like we have over 100 decisions to make each day?  We decide what we’re going to wear. We decide what we’re eating for breakfast. We decide what we should say in responding to a text or perhaps a question from our child.  And the decisions go on and on.

    Let’s Sail into Fall with Fearless Faith

    The self-help industry has blossomed big time in the last 10 years or more. If you walk into a bookstore, you’ll see tons of self-help books lining the shelves. Why? Because people want to better themselves. They want to conquer their life obstacles. We should be extremely cautious about intaking and adapting most of the worldly philosophies pushed our way.  For example, “Just follow your heart, and you’ll do the right thing” is catastrophic advice. God’s ultimate authority says in Jeremiah 17:9 (kjv), “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Following your heart will possibly lead you astray big time!

    Are You Reaching Your Full Potential?

    It’s summertime and I just LOVE a fresh, juicy watermelon. But, have you ever gone to buy a watermelon, hauled it home, heaved it inside the fridge to chill, only to slice it open and be extremely disappointed by the sight? Sometimes you’ll discover a watermelon that’s all whitish and barely pink. Instantly you know you got the bad end of the deal with your purchase. At other times, you might have sliced open a watermelon and it’s so seedy that you can barely enjoy the pleasure of eating it.  Maybe you even got one that was too sour or worse, mushy? What a disappointment! From the outside, a watermelon…

    Are You Using the Right Umbrella for Protection?

    The word “umbrella” comes from the Latin root word, “umbra,” which means to shade or shadow. Ancient umbrellas were originally used to shade and protect you from the sun. From what I understand, the Chinese were the first to get creative and coat their paper parasols with lacquer and wax to make them waterproof. Whatever the facts may be, I am THANKFUL for the simple invention of an umbrella every time it rains! My umbrella has protected me from getting soaked on numerous occasions.  Unfortunately, my umbrella has also failed me a few times… On a couple of occasions, I left my umbrella at home even though I could plainly see…
