Build Your Fortress

Definition, fortress: “1a large fortified place; a fort or group of forts, often including a town citadel; 2any place of exceptional security; stronghold” Fortresses are imperative in life. Danny Silk shared a quote the other day on his Facebook Page: “Boundaries are courage in action. A child who is courageously setting boundaries will be able to resist negative peer pressure.” Timothy Smith The deeply woven truth in these words is intensely profound…especially the beginning words: […]

Get Up, Show Up, Live Out!

The mind is a terrible thing to waste. Remember that slogan? In all honesty, it’s laden with truth. It is terrible to waste the gift God gave us: the ability to choose. We’re give many gifts by God. In fact, in 1 Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4, Paul lists a multitude of spiritual gifts given […]

Growing up, it was […]

I stepped up to the make-up counter, informed the well make-up’ed woman behind the counter of my circumstance. She was happy to oblige…until she […]

Overexposure

I hit my head last week. Plain and simple. Can you paint an image in your mind [without photos] to show you what I did to myself? Sure, it may not be the exact image of what I did…but do you really need the actual image to know what I did? Can’t the words, “I hit […]
