Doses of Encouragement

Psalm 28


As I read through the lament that is Psalm 28, I cannot help but be drawn to the Book of Nehemiah. Like Nehemiah, David is facing those who would conspire against him. There are distractions, attempts to discredit him, and every good reason to believe that there is a prevailing desire to destroy him and his work. And like Nehemiah, David needed to remember from whom his strength comes that allows him to rebuild!


Can we do the same?


Can we beg to hear God instead of entertaining the lies of the enemy and turning a deaf ear to His truth?


Can we seek to do our part to rebuild right boundaries around our vulnerable hearts though we are bombarded by an emotion-driven world?


Can we sing His praises as our strength and shield – our place of refuge?


Can we allow ourselves to find our rest in Him as He saves, sanctifies, sorts, and strengthens?!


“The LORD is my strength and my shield; in Him my heart trusts, and I am helped;… The LORD is the strength of his people;” (vv. 7-8)


“Then he said to them, ‘…And do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.'” Nehemiah 8:10c


Friends, I pray you find your joy in the LORD today and every day. Much love and many blessings.

I am a follower of Jesus Christ, wife, mother, and grandmother with a heart for women to know God intimately, love Him deeply and serve Him on purpose. With Proverbs 20:5 as my life mission, I encourage generations of women to acknowledge and fulfill their anointing.

Passion and Purpose

I have a deep desire to draw the hearts of women to the heart of God by promoting Biblical literacy and disciple-making. Though the road has had more than a few bumps and detours, I have learned to navigate leadership with humility. With a gift for conference speaking, mentoring, and consulting; my purpose is in challenging women to discover, acknowledge and live-out their purpose with intentionality. One of my biggest strengths lies in the ability to “keep things real” – I bring simplicity to the complex and joy in the mundane.

Blessings in Disguise


Have you ever had a blessing in disguise? Our biggest blessings often come disguised in hard times, difficult circumstances, broken relationships, or shattered dreams, but the Bible promises us that He will turn all things good for those who love the Lord. This is the hope believers cling to when the storm is so treacherous that we can’t see the next step. These stories will bring you hope and encourage you to look for your own blessings in disguise.
