Building a Better Life with Purpose

A New Year Begins

It’s a brand new year. Happy New Year!

You know how we all get so determined at the first of the year? We have all these big plans for self-improvement. We have goals that are going to lead us to be better people; the people we want to be. 

But then our excitement fades. Somehow we get bogged down again by general life. We forget all that we planned to do and usually by February we are back exactly where we were before. 

So instead why don’t we bring in every new month like we do the new year?

I challenge you to celebrate every new month and restate your goals and plans; or maybe even improve them as the year progresses. 

So on February 1, March 1, April 1….I expect to hear you all saying “Happy New Month” and keep marching forward with your personal goals-whatever they may be. 

2017 is going to be a great new year!! Let’s make it count.

Intentional Living

I have recently been looking into intentional living. I’ve wondered the meaning of it. In it’s simplicity, it just means living intentionally. At first I thought aren’t we all living intentionally? Is this a new thing? No, it isn’t. It just means living your life…now. Don’t just drift through life. Actually live it. What do you want?… Continue Reading

Stand Behind God

What happened to standing up for what is right? All I can see are folks fighting for what is wrong. Everyone wants rights. But in America we already have rights. We are a free country with freedom of speech, freedom of religion, & many other freedoms. For now anyway. The problem I see are those… Continue Reading

God’s Voice

This is the day that I, the Lord, made. This is not your creation. Wake up and praise your Creator. Praise Me for your blessings. Trust Me to handle what you cannot control. When you feel you cannot manage your situation any longer then try something new-give it to Me. I am waiting for you to… Continue Reading

Dear Past Me

Dear Past Me, I’m sorry I made so many mistakes. At times I believe without them I would be a different person. But other times I believe with them I am exactly who I am supposed to be. Me—with all my faults, inconsistencies, annoying ways, inability to cope with stress & worries—just me. I find… Continue Reading

Is any thing too hard for the Lord?

In Genesis, chapter 18, Abraham had heavenly visitors come and tell him that his wife, Sarah, would give birth to a son. Now, Abraham and Sarah were old in age—close to a hundred years old at the time—and Sarah overheard them tell Abraham that she would have a son. The bible says then upon hearing… Continue Reading

I write because…

The words “I write because…“ is a writing prompt published not too long ago. My first instinct upon reading this prompt was to say—I write because I cannot not write. But that is simply not true. I can go days upon days without writing. As a matter of fact, I have. But the truth is… Continue Reading

An absent parent is abandonment that causes us overwhelming grief from childhood. This particular type of abandonment leaves us brokenhearted and changes us forever.… Continue Reading
