What Can A Running Group Teach You About God?

Tonight, I learned about God from a woman named Cynthia. I did not get a chance to talk with her a lot. I don’t even know a lot about her, but through her presence, I learned about God.
Cynthia is a nurse who runs. She has one child and a smile that makes you glad you […]

Brokenness Can Be a Teacher……

Ahhhhhh! Yes I am back. No I did not quit. I didn’t even have writers block.  My blog was just BROKEN!

My little endeavor here got a bit derailed a couple of weeks ago when we hired someone to merge it into our Ultramax Sports site. That is why I have mysteriously been MIA.

You might […]

Change Your Life: 4 Choices I Made

We all get stuck, don’t we? We all develop habits that may or may not be “bad” but that definitely keep us from experiencing our best life. I’m not sure what it is about human nature, but there can be something you ABSOLUTELY know you need to change and it will take you 100 different […]

5 Ways I Share My Faith At Work

In my last post, I talked about how God needs me, as a believer, to be his light in the world.

That probably isn’t a big revelation to most believers and it isn’t a new goal for me either. However, if you are like me, for the past 40 years or so, being the light generally […]

Into the World: Living Out My Faith In My Work

I am a business owner. Sometimes it feels like a blessing and sometimes a curse. Either way, I am thankful for the work I get to do, and I will keep doing it as long as God is willing.

Over the past year, I have begun to question how much I am willing to blur the […]

All About Me

Many months ago, I started on this journey to follow Christ. I don’t know if I can truly claim that I was a new believer, because I had believed in him since I was very young. I guess I can call it a re-dedication. It was and still is an attempt to find out how […]

The Wife God Created: Part 2

“And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.”
Mark 9:35
Dear God, can you clarify? By all, do you mean my husband too?

Sometimes God says things I don’t want to hear. And, even though I say […]

Day 26: The Wife God Created, Part 1

I think we all know things in our gut.  I used to dismiss my “gut” feelings, but more and more I realize these gut feelings are promptings from God.  We might not know all the answers.  We might not even know the answers we are desperately seeking to find, but there are some things, that […]

Day 25: Be Awesome Today

As 2013 draws to a close and 2014 begins, it is more important to me than ever before to look at my life, my actions, my thoughts, my prayers, my goals, everything I am doing and evaluate it in light of God’s word.  In light of God’s word, in light of the mercy and grace […]

Day 24: Money, Money, Money

So……as awesome as this blog has been for my faith journey, I need to admit some epic fails on my part.  I mean, I am trying, but probably similar to some of you, just because I declare something, doesn’t mean I actually understand all the necessary steps that go into it.  And, probably like many […]

Day 23: Black and White

Recently, I was asked to give a speech to some women on Faith and Overcoming Fear.  Now, before anyone says it, there are some real obvious questions here.

Why would they ask me?  40 year old woman who has spent most of her life being fairly unfaithful.  Hmmm…..
Do I really know enough and have enough wisdom […]

Day 22: Excuses, excuses, excuses

“If Satan can’t make you bad, he will just make you really busy.”  I have no idea who said this, but that phrase is haunting me.   Yesterday as I stumbled out of bed with 18 things already on my mind, I began to make my coffee.   I filled the reservoir with water and then filled […]

He shows up

Sincerely, if you don’t ever see God, you are absolutely not looking. Now, I can’t say that miraculous things happen to me every day, but to me, the next experience was really incredible.  It was so clearly God showing up that I can’t imagine it being any clearer.  I am sure some naysayers will suggest this […]

Day 21: The Hands and Feet of Jesus

I was saved at age 13.  At certain times my faith was especially lame, but by all calculations, I have been a Christian for 27 years.   Amongst others, one of the principles I have lived by is that I am saved by Grace.  There is nothing that I have done or can do that will […]

Day 20: Impossible is Possible, Prayer and Marriage

Impossible is possible.  Do I really believe this?  This is the awesomeness and also the difficulty with God.  It is what we pray for.  “God heal so and so.”  “God fix this situation that is completely out of control.  I’ve tried and tried to fix it but can’t and know only you can.”  I would […]

Day 19: Called to Make Disciples-Part 1

As I sat down to this post, I had several topics to write about, but I just couldn’t get comfortable with any of them for some reason.  Each time I get ready to write, I do two things first.  I pray and I read the bible.  And, until I get a peace about what I […]

Day 18: Reserve Judgement

I hope I don’t get kicked out of my church for this one, because this is a true representation of how petty and sinful I can be.  I believe if we are honest, however, we can all admit that we have a problem with judging others.   I judge people’s actions, their clothes, their hair, how […]

Day 17: “Be Still and Know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10

I don’t know exactly how I got to where I am at this moment, except for divine intervention.   Not only did I not plan to believe this deeply in Christ, but I did not even know what it would look or feel like.  I didn’t know that after two months of really, really seeking His […]

Day 16: Bittersweet

“If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23. One of the things I have realized from trying to live my faith out on a day to day, hour by hour, minute by minute basis is that I am really bad at it.  To […]

Day 15: National Day of Prayer

“So I say to you:  Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a […]

Day 14: Choose Better

“Enter through the narrow gate.  For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to life, and only a few will find it.”  Matthew 7:13-14This is a beautiful and telling verse.I have not […]

Day 13: The Little Things

I became a Christian at 13. I was pretty devout until the age of 17 when I decided that my will was better than God’s.  Brilliant, I know.  But, the point is, I have known the basic concepts of Christianity for a long, long time. As an adult, I’ve been wishy washy, trying to move back […]

Day 12: Put me in Coach!

As I sit here on a rainy day, right after the explosions at the Boston Marathon, I contemplate what to write.  Is there one thing to say or do that is more meaningful than any other?  No one knows what to say or do.  Our country is hurting.  We continue to be shaken to the […]

Day 11: Marriage Revisited

As I grew up, and I am sure many others are the same, I had a vision for my life.  A big part of this vision was the perfect, romantic marriage.  Romance and joy.   Joy and romance.  Love all around.  I don’t ever remember envisioning that there might be tough times or that I would […]

Day 10: The Holy Who?

I love to read, but I hate to waste my time on books or chapters of books that I don’t think I am going to get a lot out of.  Often when I pick up a book (I read mostly non-fiction right now) it is because there is a specific chapter, lesson, or message that […]
