Why, How and What

Happy Monday! “You must start with why before you can begin with the how and what.” “One of the most important parts of the Daniel Plan’s Focus Essential is to know your motivation, or why you must get healthy.   Without an underlying clear sense of motivation, it is much harder to stay the course in…

Time To Go Home

Happy Monday! We have just returned home from vacation.  It was a little longer than normal and took some dips along the way. Some changes to our plans had to take place but the vacation went forward.  After spending a couple of wonderful weeks with family, it was time to get ready to return home.…

Sermon on the Side of the Road

Happy Monday!  I have a great deal of respect for the young man who wrote this.  He was pastor of the church my mom and dad went to for many years.  They loved him and loved his children like their own grandchildren. Not many pastors affected my dad but Brother Jason did.  He loved him…

Happy Monday! Sometimes little things creep into our heart and mind.  Something so small we hardly even notice it.  Unfortunately, that little thing can take root and grow very quickly until we are buried in resentment, fear or bitterness.  Do you know who it hurts?  Us.

Feel Good Foods

Happy Monday! Have you ever thought about all the different ways that what we eat can affect us?  Sometimes, I forget and sometimes, I guess I just don’t always want to remember… It’s not just our weight and our health that are affected.  Food even affects our mood!  Certain foods can make you feel more…

Put on Your Armor

Happy Monday! I have been trying to think of anyone I know, who isn’t being attacked either physically, spiritually or emotionally and sometimes from every angle!  The enemy must be getting really worried.  Time is growing shorter and however he can pull us away or distract our focus from God is what he will be…

What happened after Easter? -You Version

Happy, blessed Monday! Easter is over but it didn’t just end there.  Forty days after His resurrection, Jesus ascended to Heaven until He comes back for His bride! What happened during those forty days?  We are talking about Jesus, so we know He wasn’t sitting around twiddling His thumbs.  Even after all He had been…
