Fan into Flame

Fan into Flame

To Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. I thank God whom I serve, as did my ancestors, with a clear conscience, as I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day. As I remember your tears, I long to...
Toxic Thoughts

Toxic Thoughts

I’m going to share with you one of the keys that God gave me awhile ago. It’s a key that stops toxic thinking, and it can bring lasting transformation. Are you ready? You can’t afford to think this way. That’s it! Sounds simple, but this...
A Father’s Blessing

A Father’s Blessing

We all have fathers. Even if you’ve never met your Dad, he’s your Dad. Our understanding of fatherhood is shaped by this man, regardless of how well he has done or the mistakes he has made. Maybe you’ve had many father figures in your life, or none...

Stolen Identity

Stolen Identity

I have 7 little ones in my care right now. 7 tiny people with 7 big personalities. 7 sets of strengths and weaknesses, different ways of celebrating life and bringing joy to those around them. 7 different sets of annoying habits, unique needs and weak areas. But I...
