Learning to lovingly disagree with others

Do opinions need to be boxing gloves or can they be flowers? What if we’re all part of a bouquet in the hands of God? What if we each have a unique color, shape, scent and reason for being placed exactly where we are? Can we begin to see our differences as compliments to each other’s […]

Equally adored

When God created each of us in His divine image, He had plenty of yarn left over. He wants to knit us back together again, into communion with each other. Why do we keep stopping Him? It’s silly to argue over differences, when we’re all loved equally by the same Father, whose greatest desire is union […]

You can take it with you

Peace is like God wearing pajamas, cozying up next to you on the couch- basking in the fireplace glow. No matter how busy you are, peace can have a home in your heart. You can take it with you, wherever you go. The more peace you have inside, the more others will be warmed by your […]

Peacemaker’s prayer

Into the darkness of a world divided by hatred, give me the courage to carry Your light. Radiate Your truth so brightly through me that I can’t help but cast out lies. Ignite the fire of Your love so boldly in me that I leave trails of freedom, wherever I go.   In Jesus name, […]

Peace in troubled times

Fiery chaos surrounds me, but You are the still waters in my soul. Through prayer, I retreat- into the silence of Your presence, and I am not burned. Thank You for the promise of Your perfect peace, and Thank You for sustaining us through it all.   Related Scripture John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; […]

True beauty

Will you cultivate superficial beauty only to be admired? Or will you allow your God-given natural radiance to shine? I hope you find the courage to show them your insides. Underneath all your vain attempts to belong in this world, you really are stunning. With your gorgeous, peace-loving presence and spiritual connection, you have the power to leave […]

Becoming peace

If you want to be covered in chaos, go ahead and bathe in it – it’s easy to do, just soak in the news and talk to people. If you want peace, you need to shut out the world for a little while. Maybe leave a little window open, so you can know what’s going […]

Mystical love story

The first encounter feels like a helium balloon of love, floating us gently to new heights of peace and sweetness we’d never fathomed. Sooner or later, atmospheric pressure pops this bubble of perfection, and gravity spirals us back down to the reality of earth, where purgation starts like a strenuous climb. A gift freely given must […]

The riches found in prayer

I’m here to tell you the good news: There is a gemstone treasure waiting to nourish your soul in the quiet depths of contemplation. If you could begin to fathom the wealth of graces waiting for you under the surface of life, you wouldn’t hesitate to dive right into the crystal clear pool of silence. I encourage you to […]

How to transform your fears into faith

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. I am a born worrier, who has been transformed by grace into a prayer warrior, who doesn’t stay stuck in fear […]
