To The Woman Who Has It All Together

[dropcaps type='normal' color='' background_color='' border_color='']S[/dropcaps]he came up to me after I was done speaking to the group of women that had gathered at Prism :: Overcome. She spoke encouragement and life over me.   Then she referenced my talk--the bit where I had expressed some of my darkest fears--the fears that have, at times, dictated how I behaved and what I believed about the Lord. I had confessed to the women there that I believed from time to time that while God had absolutely wonderful, bountiful gifts for everyone else, I wasn’t sure if He had the same for me. Did God really love...

Let’s…Let’s Stay Together…

[dropcaps type='circle' color='' background_color='' border_color='']F[/dropcaps]iguring things out on your own. Keeping your problems, victories, fears, hopes and dreams to yourself. Keeping it all together and powering through with all you have. Proving to yourself you are strong enough on your own.   Leaning on others for support, wisdom, and encouragement. Letting people see who you are, your deepest fears, insecurities, hopes, and dreams. Being exposed in and honest about faults, failures and frailties. Looking to be accepted and supported and not judged and abandoned.   Which of these scares you the most?   In my life I have always leaned towards being an "open book." I desire...

Rooted in Our Purposes

I have been so honored to be a part of Prism Women and ministries like it. It’s refreshing and more exciting to see ministries popping up that encourage women, daughters, mothers, and grandmothers to keep pursuing their God-given dreams. It excites me to no end to be alive during such a time where the female population is continually being seen as equals to men, and the world and church are recognizing the need and influence of women in society.   Something I have struggled with is the space between being empowered to follow my heart and the practical steps to take...

The theme set by the Holy Spirit is that our God is a good, good father.   Director of Excellence Nicole Cottrell spoke boldly about our identities in Christ.   WORKSHOPS:   -Identity, Part 1 :: Write a lie you believe on a black...

Joy, Joy, Joy!

I have been living the abundant life God has promised me? What does that really look like? Am I supposed to feel happy all the time if I've got this "thing" down?  My answer to my own question is no and I don't know.   No, I feel like there is certainly more abundance God wants for me, but I don't really know what that looks like, and it would be impossible to be human and be happy all the time. I am chasing after the one thing that I know is real, what I know God desires for me, and I...

What To Do When You Don’t Know What to Do

On the heels of one of the hardest years of my life, I naively assumed that this year would be easier--lighter--more bearable. I thought that certainly God would, at some critical point, swoop in and rescue me. He would save the day. I was sure of it.   But, difficult days continued to be rolled out before me. I was hurting both physically and emotionally. I was spiritually anemic. I was holding on to a kernel of faith and on most days I was starving for hope, in any form.   I honestly didn’t know what to do. I asked for prayer. Then I...
