Part II: Love Defined

Good morning, friends! I can hardly wait to get this day started. I woke up with a song in my grateful heart and a sincere desire to just do better. I think we all owe God our best — whatever that may look like. For some, it may mean donating your money as generously as…

Sunrise Sermon

As I sit at my computer quietly tapping out these words — eight digits on the home row and a ninth tapping the space bar, I’m sipping on my second and final cup of coffee. Already, this day has been amazing. My alarm went off at 5:00, but I was awake long before then —…

Fighting the Good Fight

Good Monday morning, friends!  Thanks for stopping by once again for a little Monday morning motivation. I always enjoy sharing what I’ve learned over the past week with all of you — whether it was a struggle or a strength, I like to build community  by being completely transparent. Sometimes those who look like they…

Bring a Smile to His Face

Happy Monday, friends! Let’s get ready to greet the day with confidence, strength, and love for the one who made you exactly the way that you are — fearfully and wonderfully made. I know that God made me to be a bridge builder — someone who helps others connect to the resources and human capital…

Sunday Sunshine

This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad about that. Whether it’s sunny or cloudy wherever you are, know that God is watching over you. My verse of the day is one I know well. I’ve turned to it many times over the course of the last few years….

Give Him Praise

Good Monday morning, friends! Today is a great day to give thanks for all that you’ve been through. I know we don’t always want to thank him for the tough times — the hills, the valleys, and the bumps in our journey, but it’s necessary. Scripture reminds us in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 to give thanks…

A Little Sunshine

Every day that we wake up is a gift. Shine like the sun, steward your gifts, and answer God’s call to be his hands and feet. Today’s message is simple: God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. ~Psalms 18:30 Remember…

Soul Food

Get up, get up, get up!  No more snoozing…let’s get this day started. We have work to do. Someone prayed to God to send some resources — a little human capital, and that means you. So, fuel up. Guzzle down a bottle of water, grab some fruit, and hit the start button on your coffee…

It’s All Small Stuff

Good Monday morning, friends! Let’s start this week off on the right foot — knowing that we have side-stepped some obstacles just to get here today. Maybe you woke up late, didn’t have your Wheaties, or perhaps your give-a-d*amn is busted.  Well, let’s kick those crummy feelings to the side just like you’ve done so…
