Act Fast!

by

We’ve all seen a sales ad that strongly admonishes us to ACT FAST! Don’t worry, this isn’t one of them, but there’s something we can learn here. Salespeople and marketers know that if they get you to make a decision on the spot, you won’t have time to talk yourself out of it.

5 Steps to Get Through a Rough Patch in Your Marriage

by

It was our three-year Wedding Anniversary and the worst of the worst had reached its climax. I found myself walking out the door 6 months pregnant, with a one-year-old son and a backpack full of pocket change. I didn’t know where I was going, but I was finished with this marriage. Pierre panicked and called everyone he knew to call – my father, our pastor, his mother. It was the latter who got in her car with her husband and immediately drove to our house. They sat us down in separate rooms and listened. For the first time, I was sharing my heart with someone outside of my home. That night, she convinced me to stay. Continue reading →

by

The other day I was reading 1 Kings 14:1-20. King Jeroboam’s son was ill so he was sending his wife to the prophet Ahijah to find out if he was going to be OK. He told her not to let the prophet know who she was, probably so Ahijah wouldn’t be tempted to skew his prophecy for the King’s wife. Yet before she even got there, the Lord told Ahijah she was coming, who she was, and what to say. What took place in that meeting got me thinking about holiness in our generation. Continue reading →

My BHAG

by

Years ago I was part of a group that always talked about having a BHAG – Big Hairy Audacious Goal.  A quick Google search reveals that BHAG is an idea conceptualized in the book, “Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies” by James Collins and Jerry Porras. I’ve never read this book, but it’s amazing how ideas spread because I have a BHAG I started mulling over a decade ago, and I’m going to share it with you.
