I heard a lady say recently in a bible study…with such honesty and transparency, which I treasure…I feel so inadequate. I loved the bible study leader’s response and began thinking about the topic of inadequacy myself. The bible study leader responded with the truth that we are all inadequate, and that we can be ok […]

What does whole look like?
This is a very serious post, not just a reflection, but a cry for God to work miracles. A call to brothers and sisters in Christ to reflect with me and respond. I am going to be more transparent about what I have recently written about…I sense that this is the time and place. So […]
As I made my first meal yesterday in 4 weeks, I really couldn’t believe God’s overwhelming provision to us…the meals lasted a whole month. I feel ready now to return to being a mommy and homemaker…just as the last meals are eaten. Doesn’t God know our needs so perfectly? His timing is beautiful. Just a […]
Standing Firm…Our strong deliverer is IN ACTION!
This morning, as I listened at PWOC and prayed with other sweet ladies, I sensed God wanting me to stand firm. There has been a lot of spiritual warfare going on lately in my heart and home and as I cried out for His help, Christ asked me to stand firm. I pondered what “standing […]
God Equips for BATTLE!!!
A very tangible and appropriate message at AWANAS yesterday that fortifies God’s message here often to me in the desert….much of it is about how to fight the spiritual battles that are so ever present and intense here.

God’s grace to me today…
The past few days I have not been feeling well, and this morning I woke up with a sore throat, aching body, and terrible headache. It felt like the flu or step throat. I was bedridden much of the day. It seems I had gotten my monthly sickness, along with the kids this month. But, […]
I have really identified with the weeping woman a lot here in the desert (Luke 7:36-50). I find myself coming before the Lord in tears nearly everytime I come before Him. I cannot stop the tears. I find myself often at an impass. He is calling me to accept my circumstances and CHANGE. He is […]
A faith unswerving
One of my favorite people, Mother Theresa, according to a book written about her- “Come Be My Light,” lived in darkness to lead those in darkness into light. I have always been drawn to Mother Theresa–her work, her calling, her heart for Jesus. God is showing me more and more to be faithful despite my […]
Holy Spirit’s Return
Some days I feel as though I don’t feel the Spirit’s guidance as much…and it always makes me sad. I wonder why. I wonder where He’s hiding 😉 I wonder when He’s coming back….I pray, pray, pray and repent and seek…I know that some days are just going to be like that. However, today I […]
1 Year Anniversary: The Battle
This past Thanksgiving was our one year anniversary of being in the desert here in California. I reflected that morning about God’s purpose for me and our family here in the desert over the past year. It has truly been a time of testing and refinement. It has been a time where the Enemy […]
