If God has a purpose for your life, one way or another He will get you to it no matter how long it takes. God opened her eyes to her purpose one year prior to the opening of their restaurant. She went on a mission trip to Guatemala and felt an overwhelming feeling that this was exactly what she was supposed to be doing with her life. She felt she had found her calling and had a distinctive knowing that eventually, her and her husband would be down there for a longer period of time working in orphanages.

The Word Changes: A Journey in Courage

An excruciating game of tug of war plays in her head every day. A war rages, one side fighting for sobriety, the other warring for a relapse.

A Transformation Story: The Courage to Find Happiness

A Transformation Story: The Courage to Find Happiness

A stressful workplace and limited options forced me to think bigger. I had just graduated after pursuing a Master's degree. When I went out in the job market I found it was very competitive and not offering what I expected for my education and experience. I took a few part time jobs at first. Reality set in after months of searching for my dream job, many of my friends were getting laid off and rents in my neighborhood were skyrocketing. I decided to settle for job that gave me health insurance and a steady paycheck. The workplace was tense and the managers were abrasive. I’m mostly kept my head down and did my work but the environment began to take a toll on me physically. I wasn’t sleeping and I eating horribly. I dealt with screaming managers in the office, only to come home exhausted and unfulfilled. My family and close friends began to comment on the change in my normally upbeat personality.

A Chair and a Pocketbook: How Misunderstanding Can Turn into Controversy

Yesterday morning, I had the opportunity to observe something that I considered to be so fascinating.  I was attending a Christian conference and the organizers offered attendees a complimentary breakfast; a pleasant surprise!  Food in hand, I went to find a seat (I was attending the conference alone) and noticed several chairs positioned, like dining room furniture, around a coffee table.  The first chair I thought to sit in had someone’s pocketbook on it, resting on the inside of the chair’s armrest.  Both the pocketbook and chair had a similar color, cream, making it difficult to notice the former. Had I not been looking closely, I would have missed it completely.  The owner of the pocketbook wasn’t around, but some of the other chairs at the coffee table were occupied by fellow diners.

When Your PATIENCE Rewards You

When Your PATIENCE Rewards You

Spring, senior year of high school was the time I felt most disappointed in myself. Vividly, I remember the moment of anxiously tearing open the small, white envelope that held my future enclosed between two thin paper walls. Shaking, I pulled out and unfolded the letter, ready to embrace what was printed on the page. “Thank you for your application. Unfortunately at this moment you have been waitlisted to our main campus…” I remember staring blankly at those words, reading them over and over, hoping they would change each time I revisited them and feeling the pain over and over each time they didn’t. Shocked and speechless, I felt the first of many tears stream down my face as I let both my letter and dreams fall to the floor. My hope of going to college at UConn Storrs was over and I never felt more disappointed in myself.

God is real!

God is real!

For those of you who may be questioning whether God is REAL read my testimony below: 

Last night I attended a prayer meeting that was organized by a friend.  I knew the person who was hosting it at her house but I hadn't seen or communicated with her in over two years. I had heard that she had been diagnosed with and treated for breast cancer but that is all I knew.  I almost didn't go to the meeting because there was so much going on, but I pushed through and went.
