I am posting this in the hopes it might inspire/challenge/motivate others to do something similar or better. God put on my heart that I should buy blankets and keep them in my car and give them to the homeless when I see them. Yesterday I bought these 3 blankets while I was running errands. They are not as big as the ones I am looking for and will be going back for, but it is a start. I am also going to put some money for a warm meal with...

There is a reason the bible tells us in Matthew 7:3 not to worry about the spec in someone else’s eye when you have a log in your own eye. We are all sinners. There was only one perfect person to ever walk this earth and that was Jesus Christ. In God’s eye’s all of our sins are equal.

When did we become a society that thinks everyone wants to hear our OPINIONS. Opinions are not facts. Far too often I see people on social media giving their unwanted opinion on other people’s posts. People are tearing others down instead of building them up. They tell you how to parent, how to do your job, how to behave, how to treat your partner/spouse, if they don’t like something you have said or done and just how to live YOUR life. Why...

I wish more women could see the value in themselves without feeling like they need a man to be complete. There is a sense of pride and fulfillment that comes with knowing you can stand on your own two feet without the support or help of a man. Too often I see women who have self-limiting beliefs. They don’t put enough faith in themselves or have the confidence to conquer things on their own. Far too many women believe they NEED a man to be...
