Rockin' the world

Can you imagine being apart of a ministry that packs houses like this?  Ever since I was introduced to Priscilla Shirer through her Gideon study this past summer - I have fallen in love with her ministry.  I have enjoyed watching how she travels the world ministering the Word undiluted in her very own way. I love her passion for Christ and her family. I love her!

So when she posted this picture last night on Instagram I thought "wow." Someone made the comment, "When you see numbers like these...why are we as Christians not rocking the world as we should be?"  That question stayed with me because I agree.

God has given us dominion, but you know, I'm guilty of living defeated at times.  I shared about my heartbreak and feeling stuck this past week not for anyone to feel sorry for me, but because I know my sisters who read my blog may also go through that heartbreak and discouragement. That sometimes in this crazy, beautiful, big world, we feel defeated. 

So why aren't we rocking the world?  Well who says we're not? I believe we are! Personally, I know I can focus so much on the darker times, that I feel like my light has been diminished. Coming out of this recent situation has caused me to question my worth. It's hard to rock the world when you are doing that.

The key to us Christians rocking the world is keeping our eyes on the One we represent. It's hard to rock when I'm focused on my heartbreak or my worth or my work or everything else. I can stand strong when I am standing in Him. When I know His strength is perfect. When I know He has ordered the days. When I know in Him I have my breathing. When I know He is Alpha, Omega, the Beginning, the End, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Simply put - He rocks!

Because He rocks - we as Christians can rock when we focus on all that He is. 

With that I leave you with a message from Priscilla about who He is. 


You rock!

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…

Colin Kaepernick is bae

I really don't need to say anymore.  
I've been saying people with a platform need to take a stand. I didn't want any Black athletes to travel to Rio for the olympics to represent the USA. I realize that is a big thing to ask. That is the dichotomy of being Black in America.  Black athletes representing a country and winning gold medals in the name of a country who doesn't fully see us. 
So Kaepernick gets all my love for taking a stand by taking his seat.  Personal protests have always been the catalyst for greater awareness and action. 
Let me tell you a quick story. This summer at our Scentsy convention, Orville gave a moving and authentic speech that touched on the current times. I could see how he genuinely felt about what he was saying. There was a moment where this quote by a Scentsy consultant's husband was placed on the screen. I realized when he said "he's Black", everyone remained seated, but when he said "and he's a cop" eve…
