“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6)


I have had several plans to get back into the swing of things with multiple to-do lists and intentions, but it seems one battle after another kept me distracted and exhausted. The spiritual attacks are felt on a weekly basis. My battles have been a horrible bout with the stomach bug before Christmas, COVID-19 forContinue reading “Lament”

Go Easy On Me

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:58). The sun was shining brightly upon me as I drove on the newly reconstructed 44 into Tulsa,Continue reading “Go Easy On Me”

Reignited & Refueled

Since my last race—Aravaipa Running’s Merry Vertmas with 402.7 miles and 318,146 feet at a fifteen percent incline on the treadmill from December 1-25, 2020, in forty-one runs, I had been sporadic with little training runs. I’ve continued to workout with my clients at the dance studio and online for an average of five timesContinue reading “Reignited & Refueled”

Helpless & Loved

“Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord Himself, is my strength and my defense; He has become my salvation” (Isaiah 12:2). After contemplating and measuring up the emergency from the murky crown cove shoreline in the San Diego Bay, I jumped into the water to swimContinue reading “Helpless & Loved”

My God Fights For Me

If I collected all the things that go wrong or don’t work out in one or more places, I’d fill multiple canyons. I have found this book journey full of closed doors. On the positive side, there have been an array of open ones. I have found myself once again overwhelmed and frustrated. Why? GodContinue reading “My God Fights For Me”

Humbled and Glorified

I got to share the good news of my book making it on Target, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, and Amazon with a fellow writer. I rambled on and appreciated seeing my book synopsis in languages like French, Russian, and Dutch. He asked me who published my book. I justified with going through IngramSparkContinue reading “Humbled and Glorified”


Obedience can be like a worn, oversized pair of shoes quietly resting on a pedestal. A beam of light is shining down on them as to highlight their victories and let their hardships hide within the shadows. We soak in their glory moments, forgetting that they are battling in the background. Their obedience has highsContinue reading “Obedience”


I found myself still treading in deep water and waiting for my youngest to jump off the diving board on a Sunday evening this past month. I just kept treading and hoping she would find her bravery and strength. She had jumped off a twenty-five foot cliff a couple of summers ago. I knew sheContinue reading “Tenacity”
