I Want to Throw a Brick at Being Inspired

I Want to Throw a Brick at Being Inspired

I usually read a couple inspirational quotes every day. I love words and the power of language and the ability they have to speak into my heart often when I need it the most. I could give you a list of leaders, experts and friends whose words impact me on a regular basis. If their quotes were paintings, I would hang them up all over my house.

God Will Finish What He Starts

God Will Finish What He Starts

I wanted to talk to you about how God will finish what He has started!!  Sometimes it takes a while to see the completion of a trial. You know IT TOOK A WHILE when the children of Israel had to march around the wall of Jericho 7 times for 7 days, but in the final moment of God’s justice, it took only moments for that wall to crash to the … Read More...
