My Provider

Back in January of this year, I knew God was dramatically drawing my attention to tithing and finances. I developed a tendency to cling to every dollar I made, but as a single mother, I felt that no matter what I did, we were always broke. After several months of tithing, I began to grow frustrated when I did not see what I thought would be God’s provision. I was giving without knowing why. In my mind, God was asking for grocery money. I stopped tithing. (more…)

God My Healer

You have cancer ... Who says that to a young 24 year old woman who just buried her sister 30 days before? Surely this isn't real. The doctor squeezed my hand and waited for me to catch my breath. The look of fear settled on my face as unspoken questions raced through my mind. My favorite doctor stepped into my silence and immediately started answering questions that I didn't trust my words to utter. (more…)

Trusting, Even When Things Don’t Work Out

After we had our baby girl, Erin, we always talked about trying again for another baby when she turned 3. This August, Erin will be three, so earlier this year we found out we were going to be family of four in October. We found out our news right before my husband, Solomon, had to start leaving during the week to work out of town for two months. The thought of having another baby would be a great distraction while he was gone. Before he left, we decided to tell our parents, and of course they were thrilled. I even…

From Incarceration to Salvation

I grew up looking for love, attention, and acceptance. My dad left us when I was 8 years old. He had a drinking problem that led to my parent’s separation. It was hit-and-miss getting any time with him from that point on, and my mom had her hands full with me and my six sisters.  Yes, I was the only boy. And now I always say if she had had me first, she wouldn’t have had any more kids.  She tried to raise me as best she could, but I got into so much trouble, she didn’t know what to…

Promise Child

Some girls grow up with dreams of being a doctor or a teacher. I just wanted to be a mom. My mom and dad never had a problem with fertility. They had five kids, no problem. I was always healthy growing up, so I just assumed it would be the same for me. (more…)

God Brings a Miracle House

A few weeks ago, I was talking on the phone with a co-worker and she mentioned that a guy who used to work with us but had retired 5 years earlier, mentioned to her that he was putting his house on the market on April 15th, because he and his wife were downsizing. My coworker knows all about the journey that my wife Amanda and I have been on over the last year and a half with selling our house. She knew that we were looking for a little bit of land, and that we were willing to build or…

Real Financial Peace

In March of 2013, Christie (my wife) and I started the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University (FPU) course taught by Kevin J. Bacon. Little did we know this would be the best thing we had ever done as a married couple. At first it brought up a lot of things between us; you know, the things we don’t talk about that can cause heated discussions. I can say that Christie and I have never really had many arguments, but the ones we have had usually revolved around money. However, this fun (and funny) life-changing course brought us closer than we…

All Things Are Possible

Today was my last day in full time kids’ ministry. I wanted to share something that God spoke to me today after I got home. He told me that He had used my service in kids’ ministry to heal me from past hurts, and give me time to grow. (more…)

From Job Loss to Job Gain

A few months ago, I found myself in a situation with the loss of my job. I was employed there for 11 years and never thought that I would be leaving there except for when I retired. I had no disciplinary actions in my file and all of my yearly evaluations were superior. I was blindsided when I was called into an office, at the end of the day, by the administration team. Having been a manager since 2007, I knew that this was not a good thing to be called into a meeting with administration. Long story short...........they terminated…

Healing From Past Hurts

For many years I have been challenged with varying health issues. While seeking God for a physical healing from fibromyalgia symptoms, I requested a Sozo ministry session at the church. I was surprised that God had another healing in mind altogether! (more…)

God’s Financial Faithfulness

Pastor Eric Wann’s message in the Busy series, “The Clock or the Compass,” really hit home. I found myself saying “Ouch!” throughout the whole service as he described my life. Working three jobs and still finding time to waste on TV and Candy Crush, I’m a prime example of someone who needs to shift my focus from spending time to investing time. I knew that to change from living in the box of Unimportant and Not Urgent would take some obedience on my part. I just didn’t know I’d learn that lesson so quickly. God had good things in store…

God Breathes Life

During March of 2012, God answered my prayer by being selected to the rank of Staff Sergeant in the Marine Corps. This meant I would be able to continue my career in the Marine Corps but with that, it also meant I would be getting orders to move. About two months later I received orders to Richmond, VA. This meant I would have to tell my 15 & 16 year old boys that they would have to leave the only home they've ever known, and the church family they've been a part of for 15 years. (more…)
