My First Full Marathon Training and Race Recap

Ya’ll I can’t even begin to explain how great this journey has been!  I had originally planned on running a Half-Marathon in the year 2020 but because of Covid, that got canceled.  Then this year, 2021, I planned on running the same Half-Marathon from 2020.  But no, God had other plans!  Great plans!!  Before IContinue reading “My First Full Marathon Training and Race Recap”

Depression – Living without Hope

I’m going to be vulnerable with you.  Once a month I struggle with feelings of depression as part of my cycle.  Sometimes it lasts for minutes, other times it lasts for days.  I have found a trick to beating these feelings or at least stuff them away until the time passes, but I’ve recently encounteredContinue reading “Depression – Living without Hope”

Your “A” Race – What is more important to you??

Sometimes in life we have to make decisions that we wish we could avoid.  Sometimes it challenges our pride and sometimes it challenges our heart.  We come to a cross-road where we wonder which road to take.  That is when you need to look back on your why’s and priorities… If you have them.  TheContinue reading “Your “A” Race – What is more important to you??”

How to Eat Healthy… It’s Easy!

Let’s be Real… It’s Not! “I wish I could eat healthy.”  Have you ever said that?  You know the drill.  Start a diet excited.  Get through the first week and crave something bad. Resistance only lasts so long before you have no desire to eat healthy anymore.  You miss the doughnuts, pizza, ice-cream, candy, pop… Continue reading “How to Eat Healthy… It’s Easy!”

Be the Person God Created you to Be

And bloom where you are planted. Within a two year period I was humiliated on how I ran.  Slow, bouncy, I looked like a dying chicken and I was about to fall over… someone even asked if I was the walker that they’d seen go by their tree stand.  *face palm*  As time went on,Continue reading “Be the Person God Created you to Be”

Walking on Water

Do you have what it takes? Have you ever stood by a body of water and imagined the scene of Matthew 14 when Jesus walks on the Sea of Galilee?  Have you ever thought of the gut Peter must have had to walk on water himself?  Who cares if he started sinking, what about theContinue reading “Walking on Water”

Staying Hemmed and Never Getting Unraveled

The Importance of Prayer Throughout my Christian years I have gone back and forth in my prayer life.  I’ve tried prayer lists on paper, lists on my phone, on an app, organized, no list at all.  I’ve tried praying for 10 minutes, 15, 20, an hour.  I get excited about prayer, then get bored.  I’llContinue reading “Staying Hemmed and Never Getting Unraveled”

You Are What You Think

A Challenge Just For You It started sometime in the beginning of this year.  I kept hearing this phrase or something similar, “You are what you think.”  I joined a bible study on Speaking Truth in Your Heart and came across a verse I was familiar with, but this time it took on new meaning.Continue reading “You Are What You Think”

Should I, Should I Not

Should I?  Should I Not?  Ever had this run through your mind when making a decision?  If you’re anything like me you have and multiple times, maybe even every hour for weeks on end!  I know how complicated making decisions can be, but during these times of confusion and uncertainty it has drawn me closerContinue reading “Should I, Should I Not”
