Tides

My arms wrapped around her waist as we swayed back and forth during a song at Pink Impact. She sang with all her heart the words to the song Oh how He loves us. She was pregnant and had some concerns weighing heavily upon her heart. She had a few chest pains that day, she thought it…

My Mom Chose Life

I heard a story about a 19 year old college girl who had all her plans laid out before her. She came from Seadrift, a small fisherman town on the Texas coast. She was the youngest of three, born to a Preacher and his wife. When she made the move from small town to “big…

Mr Softee

I could hear the jingle echoing loudly from the ice cream truck strolling down our neighborhood. What is it about the ice cream truck that gets kids and even adults so giddy and excited? It’s super-cool! My 5 year old runs in the house searching for some dollars. He knows he has to be super…

My Favorite Thank You

I posted thank you’s not too long ago from the shower and a few weeks ago, Mercy sent me her thank you with the subject line of, “Is it too late to send this?” She had typed it up on her phone because she doesn’t have a computer and it was all attachments of a…

But these are the words we heard when my husband approached his life-long mentor who was a pastor of…

My LifeLight Experience

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may…

Embrace Grace Starts Today!

The Embrace Grace I co-lead starts today at Gateway Church – Southlake Campus! It’s semester #9 and I still get just excited as our very first semester. There are always a little bit of nerves and butterflies on the first day with the girls – they are not sure what to expect. Will they be judged?…

Kissing Frogs and Doing Puzzles

“I have become very jaded towards love,” she texted me a few months ago. “Every time I see people holding hands, kissing, wedding pictures, I get mad (jealous) is more like it.” My friend was frustrated with searching for the man she would marry, even after being receptive to dating men she would normally discredit upon first…
