Send Me

I am currently co-leading a single mom small group with some really incredible young women from my church.  Our small group is based on the study of an amazing book my pastor, Jeff Little wrote called It's Worth It - A Fresh Perspective on Faith, Religion, and Relationships.  The topic of our last session led [...]

Praying for an Epiphany

Over the past few months, I have run head first into a writer's roadblock.  My clarity and focus has not been on point.  Maybe summer is to blame.  Maybe I'm easily distracted.  And maybe, at times, I feel I need to contain what I really, truly, deep in my heart want to say.  Regardless of [...]

He Is The God Of Hope

Two night's ago, God stepped in (IN A HUGE WAY) and made a connection YEARS in the making.  These are the kinds of moments I try to explain to others about using your past pain to help others.  Only this was WAY BIGGER! A family pet with an upset stomach, resulted in a late night [...]

He Came Out Of Nowhere

  He came completely out of nowhere. There were no prior thoughts or stories of Him from a memory long ago.  Not a single memory verse to cling to.  There was no turning to Him in times of trouble.  No songs of worship or praising His name.  Never a bible to read from. But suddenly [...]

By Your Side

https://thereoncewasthisgirl.wordpress.com By Your Side. Where could I go from your Spirit?  Or where can I flee from your presence?  If I ascend into heaven, You are there.  If I make my bed in hell, behold, you are there.  If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost part of the sea, [...]

Seek Me

Seek Me https://thereoncewasthisgirl.wordpress.com We rescued a tiny Chihuahua about six years ago and named her Madigan.  She was an older dog and her spirit had been broken beyond comprehension.  Her entire life confined to a crate, locked away with a sole purpose of having pups for her owners to profit from.   The room was [...]

A Time For Renewal

A Time For Renewal https://thereoncewasthisgirl.wordpress.com We have had the strangest winter this year here in Texas....really all over the country!  But yesterday...yesterday was a little taste of what's to come.  It was a gorgeous day!  The weather was perfect.  Not too hot and not too cold.  The only thing messing with my head yesterday was [...]

Why YOU Matter

Why YOU Matter https://thereoncewasthisgirl.wordpress.com I found myself in a terrible funk yesterday which has carried through to today.   I am feeling such a heavy burden in my heart that I just needed to sit down and write. I fix my kids breakfast each morning while they are showering and getting ready for school and [...]

Patiently, I await.

Alone.  Lonely.  Lonesome.  Loneliness.  Solitude.  Isolated.  Forsaken.  Abandoned.  Unloved.  Unwanted. Once in your shoes.  Single motherhood and loneliness go hand in hand. Full of insecurities and doubt, attracting the wrong men.  Lies.  All lies.  Lies I believed about myself.  Lies I believed from the wrong kind of men. Spiritual warfare within my mind.  My soul.
