You’ll never feel ready. There’s never going to be a better time. There are no guarantees in this life. But you can count on the Truth: a step into the unknown for God leads into the Light you’re longing for. What’s stopping you? My son likes to look at the stats of my Unite in Prayer […]
Deeper Life: Cultivate a personal relationship with God
When we forget that it’s normal to have conversations with God, we get lost. But thankfully- He never stops looking for us. The more time we spend in prayer, the more we realize God’s presence is with us in a spiritual way. We don’t always feel His presence, and we certainly don’t always literally hear […]
Deeper Life: Saying yes to God no matter what
I feel like I’m toeing the line between two worlds. Trying to please One and survive in the other- I guess that’s the job of a mystic.

Divine dancing lessons for moms
Even as women, who juggle bouncing kitchens of chaos and children, we have the power to make a choice. Will we take a deep breath and tune in to the invisible reality that’s waltzing all around us?

Deeper Life: Allow yourself to follow the promptings of the Spirit

I choose to walk toward the quiet light of His love, and it costs me. God, give me the strength to follow You through darkness- help me illuminate the path for others.
Simple Faith: Discerning the voice of God in your heart
When He tells you to rest, take a break. When He tells you to stand in faith, keep your chin up. When He tells you to march, go to the ends of the earth. There are many voices in this world, but only One that truly loves you … There are many paths you can […]
