Passover 2024: Change is in the Air

Blessings, Family, As we come into another Passover season, I can’t help but reflect on the last couple of years of my journey. I have definitely felt the weight of transition in my life. Maybe you’ve felt it, too. Change is coming. “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not […]

Blessings and Opportunities

Blessings Beloved Family! I’m sending this to both my Arise! and Promise of the Day readers, so I apologize if some of you get a double message.

Promise of the Day: Lavish Forgiveness!

Blessings! Today’s Promise is Proverbs 17:9 AMP: “He who covers and forgives an offense seeks love, But he who repeats or gossips about a matter separates intimate friends.” Devotion: Last week during afternoon prayer, I was caught up to the Third Heaven and found myself face-to-face with a man I can only describe as jubilant. He was big in […]

Blessed Art Thou

Blessings, Family, For Christmas this year, I decided to share an excerpt from my book, Loved So Much It Hurts: Purpose in the Pain.

Why Passover?

Blessings Friends! Do you have any idea how hard it is to remove every speck of yeast from your home? As my daughter and I prepared for Passover, the mere thought of this daunting task made it very difficult to drag myself out of bed in the morning. I was literally stress paralyzed. And, yes, that is real […]

Be Mine: A Valentine from Your Father

Be Mine

Blessings Family, Valentine’s Day is here, and with it our thoughts turn to love. Every human being craves love. From birth, we spend our lives seeking it. We don’t feel complete without it. Why? Because we are created in the likeness and according to the image of our God (Gen. 1:26). And 1 John 4:8 […]

The Gift of a Lifetime! Limited Time Offer!

Blessings Friends! Christmas is upon us. A time to celebrate the greatest gift ever given. The one and only Son of God, in the form of a little baby. Not snuggled in a royal purple robe and rocking in a cradle of gold, but wrapped in cloths like those used to dress a body for […]

Arise!: Giving Thanks

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is already upon us! And we have so much to be […]
