Hope for the Journey

On August 19, 2009 Lisa experienced every mother?s worst nightmare; the death of her 19-year-old son, Ben, after an intense yearlong battle with Leukemia. She discovered a wealth of treasures in darkness and has made her mess a timeless and powerful message of hope that you won?t want to miss! 

 

Dancing in the Rain

God's Waiting Room 

No one likes to wait!  Even in this 'now' generation with microwaves, instant meals and high speed internet we still find it hard to wait!  But waiting is sometimes what God requires of us.  Why must we wait?  What do we do while we wait.  And when all is said and done, is it worth the wait? Reap a wealth of scriptural nuggets and practical insights to help you out the next time you find yourself in God's waiting room.

 

Unleashing God's Transforming Power

2 Peter 3:11 tells us that God?s divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness. But what exactly does God?s power look like? How do we tap into it? And how, exactly, does it transform our lives? Come prepared to have your spiritual battery charged as Lisa shares personal insights, scriptural truths, and practical principles that will inspire you to grow in your faith and unleash God?s transforming power in your own life.

 

Keep It Simple Sister

People and schedules can be demanding.  Responsibilities can become overwhelming.  Circumstances can get out of control.  Like Martha we are, "worried and upset with many things.  But only one thing is important."  Bring a heart prepared to gather some practical tools on how to set Godly priorities in order to keep life simple.


We Are Weak But He Is Strong

"You'll never be good enough!"  "You're useless!"  Why are we so prone to believe the negative messages we hear?  Join Lisa on a journey through the valley of inadequacy to discover the worth that can only come from God Himself.

 

Running the Race (Hebrews 12:1-3)

Life is a race! Sometimes it's a rat race. Sometimes it's a race of endurance. But when all is said and done, it's how you finish the race that counts!

 

Straight from the Heart

The heart of the matter is a matter of the heart. For where your treasure is there your heart will be also. Man looks on the outward appearance but God looks at the heart. Above all else guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life!

Wilderness: uninhabited, lonely, dark, barren, solitary, dry, deserted, desolate, wasteland. Sound familiar? Wilderness experiences in our lives can be described much the same.
