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 […]

Overcoming resistance to follow your calling

I didn’t want to take your hand. I didn’t want to follow you. Again and again, I called You back into the comfort I believed in. But there was no stopping You. In the end, I realized I couldn’t truly live without You. In the end, I ran after You – past everything I’d known, through my fears […]

Embracing freedom as a gift from God

Who are you when the shackles fall off? When the judgements, expectations and illusions clang to the ground … Who rises up? When the chains finally break and you’re free.. What does she want to do now? In this moment, with this breath… What does she love? Who does she want to be with? Where does […]

Learning to rise above drama and set healthy boundaries

Look out, firefly for grubby hands that like to catch bright lights and seal them in a jar. So full of radiance, you can’t imagine their jealousy- wanting to grasp a glint of something that can’t really be contained… willing to steal your freedom for an illusion of their own. Rise high, firefly- above their reach. […]

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 […]

Voices of Unity: Maya Angelou “Still I Rise”

  A world renowned poet and activist, Maya Angelou was a master of connecting with people’s hearts and souls. Growing up in segregated south, she experienced poverty, racism and child rape. Instead of breaking her spirit, these challenges opened her to the depth of human experience and informed her ability to write with faith, power, […]

Unveiled

There’s a coarse black blanket that can shroud light for a while, but it doesn’t have the power to extinguish what God created. When we pray under the cover of darkness, eventually we grow so radiant that the Creator decides it’s time to unveil His work. With dramatic flair, He pulls the dark cloak off, and we experience the reason He […]

My spiritual writing journey

I shouldn’t be surprised I’m becoming a faith writer because I first felt a calling to write as a little girl at my grandmas kitchen table, while playing under a painting of the last supper. It wasn’t the artwork that influenced me, and it wasn’t my grandma either – at least not in a tangible […]

The Divine Artist

Like a drop of pure white paint, the Spirit enters our colorful lives. Before long, She seems to blend in- and we forget, Who lightened us up. Divine Artist, keep pouring Your radiant love into me- I want to overflow Your brilliance into this dark world.  

What I loved about my first open mic night

I recently submitted a poem to a local community blog, which was curated by a spoken word artist. I personally am NOT a spoken word artist – at all. I’m a very shy and private person, who likes writing poems to express my faith and encourage others. Since I’m writing more consistently now, I’m at a […]
