How Do You Define Kingdom Culture? (Diverse Not Divided; Unique We Stand United)

In light of the racial turmoil in our country, I wanted to share a video that is a beautiful reminder of the opportunity we have before us, as The Church, to stand united, yet unique, diverse, yet not divided! We stand shoulder to shoulder, facing outward, to love and serve a lost, lonely and hurting world, not facing inward in […]

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 15

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 15 Today is day 15; therefore since we are just about at the half-way mark on this 31 day journey, I am adding a reminder of WHY it began in the first place. If today is your first day on the adventure, I hope you will read days 1-14 when you get a chance and […]

Be Strong, Be Strong, Be Strong: Abstract Triptych Series (Week 45)

Check Out My 2016 Painting and Post Goals Story behind the Paintings: One definition of “triptych” is a picture (such as a painting) that has three panels placed next to each other.  “Abstract” is existing in thought or as an idea but not having a physical or concrete existence.  The number 3 in the Bible symbolizes wholeness.  I chose to do a series […]

Be Kind

At the end of my days, I pray That God can say: “She erred on the side of kindness!” What breaks your heart? What have you committed to that you have decided: NO MORE-NOT ON MY WATCH!!! If you don’t know, please hit your knees and boldly ask the Lord the BREAK YOUR HEART where HIS breaks and HE is […]

OverWELLmed (this is not misspelled)-Walk with me TO THE WELL

These pictures were taken on a mission trip to Uganda in 2013.  I traveled with Jesus and the staff of Passion Partners, the global missions organization of Her Passion ministries, founded by Candice Moore (formerly Candice Ashburn).   These photographs are relevant to this post because we are actually walking to the town well, and this blog update is the […]
