Dare to Get Real Conference

In the early months of 2012 I was asked if I would be available to join seven other speakers at a Women's Conference to be held in November 16-17, 2012.  I was asked to write a "bio" about myself.  As I was writing in my journal that night, I was reminded of all that God has done, not only in my life, but in the lives of all the women that I have been privileged to have been able to share this magnificent walk with.  My "bio" is God's story in, and reflected through, me ... and so I wrote in my journal that night, what was in my heart...

"So often we are encouraged to study our Bible, but have never really be shown how.  I have had the pure joy of watching women, of all ages, develop an intimacy with God that comes through the study and knowing of His Word.  Know His Word and you come to know Him.  A woman who knows her God will not fall for a lie, because she has risen with the Truth.  A woman who knows her God stands firm, no matter the circumstance or trial, she displays great strength and takes action.  Instead of looking outside ourselves for these kind of women, let's purpose in our hearts before God that we, ourselves, will go and be that woman amid this generation, knowing our God and living accordingly!  One by one, together, we will be a beautiful "planting of the LORD that He may be glorified."  (Isaiah 61:3)

It's not about me... it's all about Him.
The above "bio" was submitted.
The Women's Conference is on.  
I'm looking forward to seeing you there!

Fabulous Friday!




1. almost impossible to believe; 

Did you catch that?

 "...almost impossible..."

But certainly,
by no means,

Matthew 19:26

leave you shaking your head at the wonder of it all.
The fabulous wonder of believing...

"...that Jesus is the Christ, 
the Son of God; 
and that believing
you may have LIFE
 in His Name."
John 20:31

Thrilling Thursday!



1. to affect with a sudden wave of keen emotion or excitement

She... was crying. 
She... saw Him. 
She... heard Him. 
She... did not recognize Him. 
Grief can do that. 

Then, He called her by name....
Jesus said to her, "Mary!"
She turned and said to Him, "Teacher!" John 20:16

So, perhaps it wasn't a Thursday...
but if thrilling means a sudden wave of keen emotion or excitement... 
right in the middle of her overwhelming grief, 
this girl TURNED ... 
her amazingly THRILLING DAY had begun!

He's calling your name today.
Hear Him, turn to Him... 
and know the JOY of the THRILL!

Wonderful Wednesday!


Perhaps today will just be another Wednesday you can tick off as 'done'.
Perhaps today will decide to tick you off and declare you, 'done'!

Either way,
what's so wonderful about Wednesday?

No matter what this day brings.
No matter what this day holds.
There is One Who is intent on holding YOU!

His Name is Wonderful...
                                             (Isaiah 9:6)

Tremendous Tuesday!


 If you are feeling a little fragmented today, 
frayed around the edges 
and seemingly ready to fall apart, 
remember that "IN HIM all things hold together" 
(Colossians 1: 17) 

It's a Good Word!

Magnificent Monday!

Today I posted this on Facebook...


“But make sure that you don’t get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-by-day obligations that you lose track of the time and doze off, oblivious to God. The night is about over, dawn is about to break. Be up and awake to what God is doing! God is putting the finishing touches on the salvation work he began when we first believed. We can’t affo
rd to waste a minute, must not squander these precious daylight hours in frivolity and indulgence, in sleeping around and dissipation, in bickering and grabbing everything in sight. Get out of bed and get dressed! Don’t loiter and linger, waiting until the very last minute. Dress yourselves in Christ, and be up and about!” –Romans 13:11-14, The Message 

After more than a few conversations this past week with women, 

who are weary in well doing,
 it made me think of how we frame our days in thought.  
Monday's seem to be dreaded DAYS before they even arrive!  

This week, I'm eagerly anticipating each morning, 

being clothed in Christ and JOYFULLY RECEIVING...


WONDERFUL Wednesday, 
THRILLING Thursday and 
FABULOUS Friday!  

Each is a day the LORD has made... 

wouldn't I be a silly girl not to choose to REJOICE and be GLAD in it!

May this week be a blessing to you as you joyfully anticipate each new day,

clothing yourself IN HIM!

with love,
