It’s long overdue. The time has come to finally end things. Saying good-bye is rarely easy. Breakups are painful, yet at times they are absolutely necessary. Breakups can cause you to doubt yourself and your decisions. Reminders are often everywhere of what you’re leaving behind, making it that much more difficult to move on.

Many of us have had it. That amazing idea, thought, or dream that may seem just a bit crazy to everyone else. Yet, every ounce of you believes that you can make it happen. I heard one of my favorite pastors say once that there are good ideas and there are God ideas. This idea … Continue reading What If You’re the Only One?

Negativity. I admittedly struggle at times with accepting these characteristics from others, especially when they’re repetitive. Yet on the positive side … Continue reading How Tight Is Your R.O.P.E.?
