What shapes you? What makes you who you are?

Did you ever watch Mr. Rogers as a child? This morning as I signed onto Facebook to send out birthday greetings to friends, a clip from a Mr. Rogers episode caught my eye. The thought of that show takes me back to the living room of the house I grew up in on Saxon Court. I couldn't help but watch it. If you're a fan of Mr. Rogers, you can watch it here. The clip caused me to reflect on television shows and movies that impacted me as a child. I have always loved movies, whether on television or in [...]

One Way!

Have you seen a movie in the theater lately? It's been hard in the past couple of years to find movies worth my time and money. So many of them would be enjoyable to watch; however, they're filled with horrific language and I just can't get past it to grasp the message of the movie. Recently, there have been more movies coming to the big screen that have attracted my attention. I shared with you a while back how much I enjoyed War Room. If you haven't see it, I highly recommend it. You can read my post on it here.  [...]

Bridge of Spies

Do you enjoy going to the movies? I love movies because I love the concept of story. I love getting to know new characters, traveling to different places, seeing different cultures, and trying to solve the problem of the story before it is revealed. I like many different kinds of movies: Romance Suspense Thriller (but not horror movies) Historical Drama Comedy This weekend I saw Bridge of Spies. It takes place during the Cold War. A KGB spy, Rudolf Abel, is arrested and put on trial as such. Abel's court appointed attorney, James Donovon, played by Tom Hanks, is tasked with providing [...]

ARE YOU IN IN HOT PURSUIT?

       Thanksgiving Day Gobble Jog 2014 How was your weekend? Did you do anything fall-ish and fun? I love the changing of the seasons. It is a reminder of God's faithfulness. No matter what we're going through, God won't leave us there. He loves us too much to allow us to get stagnant in any situation. One of the highlights of my weekend was our Sunday worship service. We had a full service dedicated to worship - no preaching, just worship, prayer, and the reading of the Word. It was powerful. One of the songs we [...]

ATTENTION!

What do you give your time and attention to? What do you focus on? Another way of asking that question is what are your priorities? My mother used to always say, You make time for things that matter to you." Think about it for a minute... If your boss told you something has to get done today, you're going to do whatever you need to in order to accomplish the task. It suddenly became your top priority of the day. Nothing else matters until you get that task completed, because your job may depend on it. It's become not just [...]

OTHERS FIRST, PLEASE.

What is your favorite scripture verse? If you're like me, it's hard to choose, because depending on the time or season of life you're in, different verses become your life line. We all know and love John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." When I first stepped out into ministry, the verse that served as my anchor was 2 Timothy 3:16, All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness," When my children [...]

I HAVE A NEW BABY!

Well, if that didn't grab your attention, I don't know what will. NO! I am not expecting a child at my age. Thank goodness. But I did birth something recently. I have worked for over 5 years in the anti-trafficking movement and have finally birthed the nonprofit, Rescuing Hope, Inc. Those of you who have journeyed with me for a while now are not surprised by the name. You can learn all about the ministry by skipping on over to my new website here. I am so very pleased with the way it turned out. It conveys the message of [...]

Jared Fogle, there’s a connection!

By | 2015-09-09T11:36:04+00:00 September 9th, 2015|Christ Follower, Human Sex Trafficking, Women, Young Adult|

What do you think  of when you hear the name Jared Fogle? Up until recently, you most likely thought of Subway. He went from being an overweight Indiana University student to the Subway spokesperson and some say cultural icon. He made his fortune by being the face of Subway for 15 years. While most saw Fogle as an ordinary guy who could easily be their neighbor, there was more to the story. Reporter, Rochelle Herman, gained her first glimpse of a story beneath the story when Fogle, married father of two, made a random comment, causing her concern. He told me that [...]

Worth the Work

Frozen Banana Bites Are you physically fit? Do you eat well balanced, health meals? Do you exercise regularly? I used to be able to answer yes to all of the above until about ten months ago when I injured myself while running. My foot injury prevented me from exercising. Because I was over compensating for the pain in my right foot, I put more stress and strain on my left foot, causing an old ankle injury to start hurting again. With both feet compromised, exercise was out of the question. I've always loved to cook. When I was [...]
