It’s the start of a New Year. Today is the second day of it. I thought about challenging myself to blog every day this year but then I realized I was setting myself up for failure, ha.

We have a lot of changes coming our way in our little family. The arrival of our first (miracle) son is soon. 10 weeks…or less…I’m thinking less. Nicolas will be here in no time and I have lots to do before he is.

I don’t really make resolutions but I do prepare for a new year that offers new opportunities. Yesterday I spent the better part of my day cleaning out my desk and organizing everything in preparation for more writing and personal Bible studies/time in the Word. I am behind on my writing goals. I should have already had my 4th Bible study workbook published and available but I’ve been slacking in that department. The others are still available through 

I have the ever looming creative non-fiction novel hanging over my head screaming EDIT ME!! I should have had that book out two years ago but I trust all will happen as it is supposed to.

I think about all these things I should have done, could have done, haven’t done, need to do, will do, won’t do, maybe I’ll do…and I think about God and how he’s steadfast. In EVERYTHING. His Word never returns to Him void.

His Word in the beginning was fulfilled with the New Covenant, the New Testament. He made good on His promises. It’s all in His timing and His timing is always perfect. I like to think my timing on things is perfect but I don’t imagine God gets stressed like I do when I procrastinate on things being accomplished.

What if Jesus had been crucified before he performed all of the miracles he performed? What if he had ran away in the garden instead of giving himself willingly to the soldiers which started his funeral procession?

He knew and TRUSTED God’s perfect timing even though he may not have liked it. It was made obvious he didn’t like it when he asked in Matthew 26 that if there be any other way, he was all for it. There wasn’t another way though. God had already spoken on the matter.

God has already spoken about you and me as well. There are many scriptures that tell us who we are IN CHRIST. A few examples:

John 1:12 (KJV)

 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

1 Corinthians 6:17 (KJV)

But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

Romans 6:6 (KJV)

Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

1 Peter 2:9 (KJV)

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;

There is an awesome book written by Pastor Mark Hankins called Power of Identification With Christ that is a more in depth study of who we are in Christ. We become unstoppable when we know who we are in Him.

Be unstoppable this year.


James 1:4 (KJV)

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.




I am pleased to announce the release of my first poetry collection – Seasons: A Cluster of Poetry.

What is different about this poetry collection? I’ve included an explanation of the inspiration behind each poem. I’m always curious as to what inspires others so I decided to share mine.

There are 5 signed limited edition broadsides available through my Etsy store as well which are poems included in this collection.






“Dance Again” 

Depression is not something I have talked about openly before, other than with my husband. I go into more detail in the book I am working on but I am also easing into sharing my life with the world through social media before the book is released into the world.
I was never professionally diagnosed because I hid it and didn’t want help with it other than my own self medication through drugs and alcohol in my teens and early 20’s. I’m 38 now. My first suicidal thought was in kindergarten. It progressed as I grew older and I probably spent roughly 20 years of my life as an adolescent, teenager and into my 20’s where suicidal consideration was part of my daily thought life no matter how many smiles I put on.

When I rededicated my life to Christ at age 28, that stronghold over my life was broken. It no longer consumed me. However, there have been times since then when the enemy has tried to get me back into old thought habits but I have the Word of God to stand on and use it every time. The last couple of weeks have been trying and I felt the enemy trying to drag me back into a state of depression. I prayed through because I am able to recognize what it is and God always answers that call. Jesus took that stripe on the cross.

I’m not writing my story because I want to, I’m writing my story because God asked me to. There is someone who needs it. There is someone who  needs to know they aren’t alone. You always have options. You always have hope. Reach out to someone. Pray and ask God for help. I’m a living testimony of His Word and if He will do it for me, He will do it for you. YOU ARE LOVED. 


A side project I completed last week…poetry broadsides.

You can purchase a Limited First Edition, signed/numbered poetry broadside digital print, with a Letter of Authenticity, through my ETSY store. Click the link or image below. There you can read through the five available poems. Only ten of each are up for grabs.

The third workbook in the Bible Study series is now available through Amazon and you can order it here.

This one is on Ephesians and titled Growing in Christ.


The next workbook will be on 1 Corinthians and I hope to have it available no later than the beginning of July. I have a few projects going on right now and there is one taking a front burner to the others at the moment. Once that task is complete I’ll be able to jump back on the workbooks.

In the meantime, thanks for reading and following along. I hope you are blessed by the workbooks.






Scribble. Scribble. Scribble.

It seems like lately I’ve been doing a lot of scribbling but all of my scribbles come together into greater works so I’m okay with that.

I try to post here once a month as to what is going on in my writing world. Currently I am finishing up a 3rd Bible study workbook, compiling a 365 day devotional, editing my manuscript for my first creative non-fiction book and working on some prints for my poetry to soon be up in my Etsy store. I like to keep it simple.

More importantly, I wanted to make everyone aware of another blog I post to daily. It’s part of my ministry and I post Monday – Friday. It is there that I talk about all different things, in fact, the tag line is Everyday Christian Living. I don’t candy coat things either. It’s real stuff, real struggles, real revelations.

I encourage you to follow me over there as well at 

I promise you’ll laugh, sometimes you may cry, but most of all you will see that Christians are people too and we all go through the same struggles.

To my fellow writers, keep on keeping on!
