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 [...]

What can I do? I’m just one person.

Interstate 20 in Georgia Have you signed up to be a part of Circle Atlanta for Hope yet? I have been so blessed to see the number of people sharing the website information and challenging their friends to be a part of it. This is an event that everyone can be a part of, young and old. It is a way families can teach their children about the power of prayer. This is a way for the elderly to engage in the fight.

The Difference Between Rescued and Restored!

It's not finished yet. Have you ever restored a piece of furniture? It almost always takes longer than you expected. You also tend to discover some unexpected costs to the project; however, if you will stick with it, invest the needed time and effort, the end result is beautiful. A dear friend of mine is very gifted in restoring things. She took an old, discarded desk from a friend and spent several days working on it, sanding down the rough edges, removing the coats of paint and varnish that covered it, taking it down to the bared wood. Then [...]

Where were you?

Where were you? It's a question you can ask anyone on this specific date and they immediately know what you're talking about... September 11, 2001. It has been 13 years and still people remember it like it was yesterday. Some people received frantic phone calls from friends or family members telling them they weren't going to make it.

Just within my little bubble of the world, the horror of it all threw one friend into early [...]

Largest sex trafficking bust in America!

Did you see the breaking news yesterday about the largest sex trafficking bust in American history? If you missed it, you can watch it here or read about it here. It was like Rescuing Hope on steroids. From the moment the story broke, I couldn't stop thinking about those rescued: 105 girls between the ages of 13 and 17 rescued from 76 different cities 150 different pimps arrested, who held children in bondage either physically or mentally 105 families, learning their children had been rescued and were alive I welled up with emotion for the girls, for their families and for the [...]
