A fat young male cardinal was flying off of a tree branch and hitting the window. I choose to believe that God was speaking to me.

When God Answers Our Prayers
I have been praying for two answers for this coaching ministry. It would be unethical for me to tell you what these two things are, but I received answers to both prayer requests yesterday. Yes, all in one day.
Is Personal Growth Important to You?
I believe we should always strive for change. As a life coach, I am tuned into the negative and stubborn words that typically stop us in our tracks (i.e., excuses), such as: "I cannot," "I refuse," "I have always been this way," or "I can never." Change is always possible.
When God Calls | Feeling Called to Take a Break
Trusting God means looking beyond what we can see to what God sees. - Dr. Charles Stanley (God's calling, faith, obeying God)
Are You Religious?
When asked the question "Are you religious?" I would rephrase it (even if only mentally) to, "Who do you put your faith in?" My response was, and is, "I put my faith in Jesus Christ."
Feeding My Soul
In easy terms, I will say that my soul is my connection with God. With that being said, I want a soul-feeding every day. I want to nourish down into the depths of God’s will for me. I want every piece of that to flourish.
In the Garden
I think of the many mornings that I've sat alone in the dark, right before (and after) sunrise. Alone in the physical sense, but not alone in the presence of God. This time of day feels spiritual to me—it is precious.
A Lesson in Forgiveness
God answers our prayers with a yes, no, maybe, or later. This one was a yes, and it came later, and he definitely helped me to release a stronghold.
Pray It Forward
Father, help my eyes have the clarity to see the needs others have for prayer. Help me to pray on the spot and lift others up—not at a convenient time for me, but when the necessity is clearly in the moment.
Songs and Words From the Heart (Notes about My “Why”)
As a writer, and for all of us, I believe the evil one feels joy as he whispers lies in our ears. He adores seeing us go off track when we believe in his words"You aren't good enough, " or, "What gives you the right or say or write that?!" (and more...). Satan's onslaught is constant, but when we are armored up, his lies cannot penetrate us. We possess the freedom to use our voices as tools to help others when our faith and shields are in place!
