Stay Hungry & Humble

A place of encouragement for everyday life.

God Doesn’t Make Mistakes

The Struggle is Real I struggle with food.  For years I have believed a lie that my worth is directly related to the number I see on the scale.  Lately, God is showing me the lies that I have not only believed, but projected onto others.  I know God’s love is unconditional.  But yet, deep […]


Would Others Know You’re A Christian If You Didn’t Tell Them?

The Question… One question I am humbled by: Would others know I am a Christian if I did not tell them so? Think of how we act around others, at the grocery store, in traffic, or even in our own homes. Jesus said in John 13:34-35, “…love one another.  In the same way I loved […]


Compassion, Giving, & Becoming Less Selfie-Centered

My heart is full.  Today I received a letter (actually three letters) from a sweet 5 year-old boy who lives in Kenya.  He told me in the letters that his favorite color is green, that he loves cornbread, his favorite song is “Jesus Loves Me,” he enjoys playing football (soccer), and he wants to become […]


Choosing to Live in Hope, Not Guilt

We Don’t Have to Live With Guilt & Shame Guilt and shame are not from God; God gives hope .  Sometimes I think that we are so “used” to hearing the devil’s lies that we tolerate them on a daily basis.  It’s like we have a rain cloud floating over us where ever we go, […]


Butter Dishes & Breaking Bad Habits

I save butter dishes and plastic bowls. When I was young, I remember my grandmother saving every plastic container:  butter bowls, Cool Whip containers, sour cream dishes…all of them neatly stacked and stored along with the matching lids.  After dinner we would store left-overs in these plastic containers of many sizes and shapes.  It became […]


Jesus is Bigger Than Depression, Disease, & Disorders

I can be naive.  In my rural hometown of less than 1200 people, everyone knows everyone.  Growing up with my grandparents and extended family down the street from where I lived is something I cherish. We went to church on Sundays and always ate Sunday dinner together afterward.  It was normal to be active in […]

It Is For Freedom He Set Us Free

Have you experienced fear? I mean true fear….the kind of fear that cripples your movement, thoughts, and hinders daily life? Me too.  Read about my story and how I overcame fear and stepped into God’s promise of freedom… My story One summer when I was in college, my friend, Tonya, invited me to spend a couple […]

Pain: How a Bicycle Changed My Perspective

Have you ever been in a place where things are falling into place perfectly in your life only to have a “life bomb” drop and explode in your face?  Maybe you had a wonderful job, a loving companion, you were healthy, or a loving support system of friends and family.  Then something happened….you were in pain, disappointed […]
