So many things in life are unexpected. The reality is that most of life is unexpected. What IS unexpected really? I mean what does it REALLY mean? We can have an idea of how our day will proceed however; most of what occurs at any given time is unscripted. Life is a gargantuan improv... Continue Reading →



We all have things in our lives that we want to change. The problem is most often we look to others for that change. Scars never become a badge of honor; a beauty mark instead of a blemish until we embrace the fact that whatever caused it is gone & it is only ourselves that... Continue Reading →

I Am Human Just Like You

I've been told that I am a down to earth minister. I feel that the only way to be authentic to my calling is to acknowledge that I am no more righteous, saved or Holy than any other human. 1Jn1:8 says, If we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves & the truth is... Continue Reading →

This Morning I SCREAMED…

Can you relate?  This morning began as most mornings. Anthony frustrated ,the internet was running slow causing his favorite Kids YouTube video to drag.

More and more households are in total chaos, children out of control yet it appears to be the 'norm' for a great deal of millennial households. So many adults and children disrespecting their parents and failing to set firm boundaries, REAL, SWIFT, CONSISTENT boundaries or discipline for their own children. 

Maxim Nursing 8 months of failures, rude, non professional, supervisors and care team. A letter to ONE of the rude comments made my staff and or supervisors.

Last evening I read a post that infuriated me. It is not unlike others I have read in various venues before. The difference in this is that it was a personal attack on my family. Rather than call out the Judas whom is no longer associated with myself or my child. I will address this... Continue Reading →
