    The God Driven Woman

    Today I would love to share with you all something that is on heart, and that is what it means to be a driven woman. When I say driven I am not talking about the women who claim to be feminists who are completely anti-men, but more the woman who isn’t afraid to be who God has called her to be. The woman who doesn’t hold back despite the fears and challenges that she will face, because she knows who is in control of her life. This was shared with me by a lady in my small group, so I cannot take credit of these words, but they are beautiful…

    5 Things to Start Doing in Your 20’s Before Buying a Home

    Home is where the heart is. 1. Start building your credit right away. If you haven’t started building your credit that is something I highly suggest putting at the top of your list. When purchasing a home, almost every loaner that you come across will want to know what your credit score is, and how long you have had it. If you don’t know where to start, I would suggest going to your bank and starting with a small student credit card. My first credit card had a $200 limit on it, and I used it on small things like gas and out to eat places. 2. Make sure you…

    Things To Do With Your Baby Before They Turn One

    This quote haunts me to this day. My parents are amazing, and I truly love them, but there are things that I wished they would have done differently, and I know that my children are probably going to think the same thing about me, because we are all human, and the best way we learn is by making mistakes or watching other people make them. As a kid, the people that we looked up to the most were our parents, and I don’t know about you, but sometimes the thought that I have someone looking up to me is kind of scary. I know that I will never be the…

    Five Keys To A Happy Marriage

    I want to begin this topic, by saying that marriage in my opinion is the root and foundation of the home. It goes all the way back to when God created the foundation of the earth. He saw man that he was lonely and needed companionship, and so he created the woman. They were a team. One was not better than the other, and I think that is where a lot of people get into arguments and conflicts, because marriage is often made out to be just another competition. God wants marriage to be more than that. One person can do amazing things, but two working together can do more.…

    Sunday Notes – “Four Principles of Rest”

    Matthew 11: 28-30 (AMP) “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened (by religious rituals that offer no peace), and I will give you rest (refreshing your souls with salvation). Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me (following Me as My disciple), for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU Will Find Rest (renewal, blessed quiet) For Your Souls. For My yoke is easy (to bear) and My burden is light.” What a beautiful passage of scripture, and I love the way this version of the Bible puts it. Today we live in a busy world, and sometimes we can get caught up in…
