Looking back to my college days I remember how much I hated being in small groups. I to this day have a love/hate relationship with them. I value small groups because transformation happens in the circles of the church.  In the circle you are known and you know others.  For some the circle can be

Truth and Lies

When God speaks to our hearts we know it is the truth but how often do we have a hard time believing the truth with our heart? When the enemy speaks he is lying yet so often his lies are so much easier to believe.  I spent the last weekend at a women’s retreat with

Key Change

When you have had music as a part of your life for as long as you can remember you listen to music very differently than just the average person. I listen to music and hear things like hearing a key change, or specific instrument that sounds so perfect playing the part. I have my favorite

Moving into New Space

Seasons come and season go and in each season we have expectations both in our own seasons of life and in the actual seasons (fall, winter, spring, summer). For me I am entering another new season which is hard because it seems like the season I am in is ending as soon as it began.
