Embracing the fullness of my messy, miraculous life

This is the road of authenticity – one day rocky, another smooth. It’s easy to love the sand squishing between our toes, hot sun warming our souls … storms are another story. One way or another, we need to believe in the Light that never stops shining behind clouds and radiates always deep inside. This is the […]

The simple path to peace … what Unite in Prayer is all about

If we’d all tune in and listen deeply enough to the Perfect Quiet inside, we’d all know the Way, the Truth and the Light for ourselves … We could wander in a trillion different directions and remain One, united beyond time and space, free like children playing, knowing what to do without making any sense. We’d […]

Deeper Life: The power of presence

When we’re deeply rooted in God, there’s nothing to do … no motion, no words. In the silence, we can stand tall and strong like oaks, providing shelter for others. Our loving presence is enough to send oxygen into the atmosphere. When’s the last time someone was there just for you? With no agenda or needs of […]

Just a reminder: Faith isn’t supposed to be easy

Sometimes we choose to climb mountains. We’re up for a challenge, so we buy maps and boots and join monasteries. Other times, we’re forced to climb. We’re kidnapped by heartache, left in the wilderness- alone with our prayers. Sometimes when we’re asked to walk a high road, it feels more like being left for dead. […]

Deeper Life: Clearing internal blocks to freedom

If you take the time to remove each stone one by one, a doubt and fear at a time – gradually, the Living Waters will begin to flow more freely through you. If you want to experience the bubbling joy of infinite Divine Love, heavy lifting pays off. Jesus said “He who believes in Me, as the […]

Deeper Life: Experience the transformational power of prayer

Like a stone at the seashore, waves of God’s love crash over me, smoothing away my rough edges. Mother Teresa said “I used to think prayer changes things. Now I know prayer changes us, and we change things.” Let’s face it! We all have a lot of work to do to reach our full potential […]

Just a Reminder: God is always with you

I just want you to know I’m right here with you, always. Even when I’m the furthest thing from your mind, I’m in the air you breath- surrounding you, illuminating the atmosphere. In this moment: Can you feel the sweetness of My presence? The Truth is: you’re swimming in Love … Can you see My […]

Deeper Life: Slowing down to acknowledge God’s presence

Whose voice is that frantically rushing you out the door? Who is pressuring you to abandon your sense of calm? Who is banging that obnoxious drum? YOU. SHOULD. DO. MORE. Is it the Prince of Peace, whose voice is still and small? Is it your Heavenly Father, who abandons fear for love? Beneath the clamor of this […]

Simple Faith: Cultivating friendship with God

Prayer is a cup of coffee with our Creator, who loves us perfectly. We become the average of the five people we spend the most time with. Today, I encourage you to ask yourself: Is Jesus on your top five list? Saint Teresa of Avila said “Prayer is nothing more than spending a long time […]

Simple Faith: Walk toward the Light

I used to wonder about the darkness. I was obsessed with how it consumed some people and transformed them into cold cruelty, unyielding hardness. The answers settled into my bones as shadows, textures of despair- thick hopelessness, futility like a fog. What’s the point of shining in this world? Now I wonder about the light. […]
