The Gospel of Experience or The Gospel of Jesus Christ?

My heart is utterly grieved. I don’t even really know what to say. I have had to repent of SO MUCH, over the last couple of months. This isn’t the first time I have had the very foundation of what I believe in, shaken. When I turned from my New Age beliefs and returned to…

New Age or Christianity? Defining Our Terms

When trying to determine if something is Christianity or New Age, we need to understand what certain words and phrases mean. I’ve noticed that Satan likes to play with language to cause confusion and frustration (we see it in the news, everyday). As Christians, we are taught to disregard Satan’s lies and focus on the…

On the Rise – New Age Beliefs in the Church

I’m sharing something today, that I hope will begin some conversation about where we are as the Church – as the Body of Christ. While this post addresses issues found in the western church – North America, in particular – these beliefs and practices have a global reach.  This is a video by Steven Bancarz…

Recent Changes and Future Plans

I’ve been away from both my blog, and social media, for a few months. It has been a season of change for me and my family, so a break was a necessary thing. I’m writing this as a quick update on what has been going on and to share a little about my plans for…

Women Are To Be Silent In Church?

I recently came across a teaching that I would really like to share.  For more than a decade I served in some kind of church ministry. I LOVE ministering to people and felt the pull to minister from a very young age. And I believe, with all my heart, that it was God who placed…

Exposing the Darkness

***Warning: This is a post on abortion with some graphic detail from my personal experience.*** If you have had an abortion, this may not be a post that you want to read. However, if abortion is a part of your story and you find yourself struggling with pain, guilt or shame, please know that God…

Praise in the Midst

In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though…

The Beginning of Small Adventures…

I am adding a new category to my blog. It isn’t devotional, necessarily, but something that I believe the Lord has laid on my heart to do. The new category is called “Small Adventures” and will basically be me visiting a local landmark, museum, town, memorial, etc…and writing something about it. There will only be…

To Dream, Again

I’ve never really been one for making New Year’s resolutions. I know me, and the whole “New Year, New You” thing is not going to be enough motivation to help me change anything about myself that my head and heart aren’t ready for…no matter what day of the year it is. Back when I was…
