First Responder on Kennesaw Mountain

Do you like to hike? My husband and I like to hike sometimes on the weekends. There are some amazing places to go for a hike in Georgia. Amicalola Falls is about two hours north of the city. If  you don't want to travel that far out of the city but still want that mountain feel to your hike there are still places to go. Stone Mountain for starters. While many take the cable care ride to the top, there is a fabulous trail that leads to the top of the mountain. They also have a theme park and accommodations close [...]

Make the call! Save a life!

Did you ever read the story of the Emperor's New Clothes growing up? It's a story by Hans Christian Andersen about a king who was duped into believing he was wearing the most beautiful suit of clothes when, in fact, he was stark naked. The weavers, who promised the emperor a beautiful suit of new clothes, said these clothes would be invisible to those unfit for their positions, those who are stupid or incompetent. The tale goes on to say people didn't proclaim what they saw, or rather didn't see, out of fear for themselves. These weavers were very shrewd and [...]

Does He hear you?

Does God still answer prayers? Or do you feel like you're talking, but no one is listening, especially God? At times it can feel that way. You pour your heart out and wait patiently... or not so patiently... for an answer that never seems to come. I don't believe God sits on His throne each day deciding who He will or will not listen to. Unlike you and I, He is the ultimate multi-tasker. While many of us have a hard time making it through our day and listening those around us, He can keep everything on earth going and [...]

Who did you meet yesterday?

Do you have the opportunity to meet new people each day? I meet people from all walks of life and I learn something from everyone of them, whether they're survivors, doctors, lawyers or teenagers. Everyone has something to share if you're willing to listen. The more I learn about sex trafficking, the more I realize I need to learn. It is so multifaceted and there are many people to educate on the issue. While I know a lot about the issue of sex trafficking, I do not know a lot about the medical world. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to [...]

Do you know the indicators?

Were you ever a part of Fellowship of Christian Athletes, also known as FCA? They did not have FCA in my high school growing up. My introduction to it was when my son was in sixth grade. He started asking to attend and I decided to find out all I could about the organization. They meet in middle schools and high schools across the country, usually once a week before school. Their mission is simple, To present to coaches and athletes, and all whom they influence, the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him [...]

Four Things You Can Do Today to Help

Did you know this past Saturday was National Human Trafficking Awareness Day? The entire month of January was declared National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month . My question is do you think human trafficking takes place anywhere near you?

There are a variety of indicators you may or may not see. Some are: She may be in the company of an older man. She may have a tattoo or branding [...]

On the move….

Are you a baseball fan? If so, you've likely heard the buzz around the Atlanta Braves. They stunned everyone when they announced on Monday morning they would be relocating from Turner Field in downtown Atlanta northwest to Cobb County, still in the metro Atlanta area. The reason for the move? Many reports say they Braves wanted a convenient location with more than a ballpark. They want to create an experience, thus providing restaurants, shopping and lodging close by as a draw to baseball fans as well as easy access to major interstates. This announcement was a huge shock to those [...]

What’s the verdict?

Have you ever lost something only to find it right in front of you? Yesterday, I was trying to grab too many things at once: the dry cleaning, the letters for the mailbox, my cellphone, my iPad for my meeting, my purse and my car keys. I'm all about multitasking, but this was just more than my hands could hold. I didn't realize something was missing until I got in the car and down the driveway to put the letters in the mailbox. I was missing two. After a frantic search of the car, I went back in the house- [...]

There’s an APP for that!

What do you do when you see a young girl dressed scantily? Do you move your family as far away from her as you can, hoping they didn't notice her? Do you reach out to her, hoping to learn if she's in trouble or not? Domestic sex trafficking is a real and growing issue. We'd all like to think it only takes place in third world countries, but the reality is it takes place not only in our nation, but in our cities and neighborhoods. According to Cornell Law School's Legal Information Institute, the term sex trafficking means, the recruitment, [...]

Praying in Freedom for the Captives

Interstate 20 Do you believe prayer works? You sit and pour out your heart to the Lord and hope to see Him move. Sometimes you pray the same thing for days, weeks, months or years without seeing any activity. Do you think He hears your or is He just too busy? A friend of mine stood in church yesterday and shared how God answered a prayer she'd been praying for some time now. She has family in south Georgia she visits fairly regularly.  This trip takes her up and down interstate 20. Since she makes that trip alone, [...]
