Concerned about another software company ripping me off, I awake at 4:17am. I prefer to sleep, but make my way to the coffee machine and into my office to check on a refund. No such luck – no refund. The tension is rising. The root cause is not the money or principle, it’s the time […]
Driving from Kigali towards Musanze, I grab the handrail as the tattered jeep sends us air born in our seats, hitting every pothole along the way. I spot a waterfall and ask Emmanuel, the driver, to pull over to take pictures. Excited, I jump out of the vehicle to capture the perfect shot. Suddenly we […]
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” – John 15:5 When Jesus said nothing, he meant NOTHING! And when we refuse to abide in His ways, we are destined to produce rotten apples. […]
Beautiful Savior how we long for your ways of righteousness. Flowing is the current that leads us to deeper water. Let us rest in the solitude of salvation and hear our cries. Oh Lord, we must not worry about tomorrow and seek forgiveness when we stumble. Satisfy our hearts today, oh Lord, with your songs […]
In my morning quiet time with God I pray for wisdom. Sometimes I receive inspirations from the Lord intended for sharing… Celebration is a way of life. Be generous in all things. Wake up with prosperous ceremonies. Count the riches of this world and many blessings. Share faith in a positive way of righteous understanding. […]
How ironic. Just a few weeks ago I blogged about turning trials into triumph. Today, I’m typing this one flat on my back to share my revelation of turning back pain into empathy. Sounds like a trial to me! Thankfully, compared to many people, my lifetime contains a few minor injuries, illnesses, and surgeries. Not […]
During my long season as a “work-a-holic,” I faced multiple trials in my professional career as well as my personal life. Specifically, with my marriage. It’s not difficult to imagine the damage inflicted on a relationship when the number one priority is hyper-focused on work and career pursuits. Gratefully, I’ve learned how to turn trials […]
As business owners, it’s easy to become discouraged at times. We need strong words of wisdom to keep us motivated, focused, and help us conquer business owner fear. At 3:30 am I awoke with a feeling that I thought I buried after leaving the demands of my technology career. I thought, “Oh no, this familiar […]
God help me! Not because I’m down and out or hitting rock bottom. Not because I don’t have an abundance to live a good life. Not because I don’t have people who love and support me. So what’s the problem? That’s the exact question that my dear Mentor Diane Hale used to ask me when […]
Looking in the rear view mirror, a reflection of the week where God stepped in as the leader. “God is with us; he is our leader.” – 2 Chronicles 13:12 How true of that statement! Through the highs and lows of doubt to determination, God always shows up and delivers on His promises and this […]
Around five o’clock am, I woke up with one eye open and fumbled for my iPhone strategically located on my night stand. I blinked a few times to remove the blur cautiously scanning my inbox for emails to alert me of any system issues. The morning inbox determined how hectic my morning would be and […]
I recall a time when my Husband Keith couldn’t do anything “right.” The reality of that statement is that my mind was not “right” and I was more interested in my “fight to be right” than being the wife God intended, but I didn’t know how. I also didn’t know that we needed marriage restoration. […]
I recall being a new Christian. It was exciting, awkward, intimidating, uncertain, and thrilling all at the same time. Unfortunately, my development as a newly baptized Christian delayed for many years because of a gap in answering the question, “now what?” Even though I attended church from my earliest years of childhood, my defining moment […]
