My Food Confession

My Food Confession

People that know me know that I have an interest in tasty and healthy real food.  I read a lot about how different foods can be used as medicine and about the different food trends of today.  I really enjoy reading about and cooking things from scratch verses buying pre-made items.  While I don’t think…

I Can’t Sleep

I Can’t Sleep

I can’t sleep. Well, that isn’t completely accurate. I go to sleep quite easily. I just don’t STAY asleep. I wake up several times during the night. Most of the time I will wake up one final time, around 3AM, and stay awake until I get out of bed to do my morning workout before…

Relationships for an Introvert

Relationships for an Introvert

I am an introvert. This may come as no surprise to some, but a big surprise for others who know me. This is because I can be quite talkative in the right environment. However, I can blend with the wall pretty well in other situations. I find that I am more apt to get involved…

Are We Acting Crazy?

Are We Acting Crazy?

When I was around seven years old, I told my parents that I wanted to talk to the preacher about salvation. I cannot recall exactly all that was going through my mind at the time. I do remember being very nervous. Rev. Bobby Tew (one of the coolest and funniest men I’ve ever known) sat…

Experiencing Joy

Experiencing Joy

Joy is a word that I have passed over many times as I have seen, heard, and even said it. This is kind of odd, seeing how joy is mentioned over 150 times in Scripture, depending on which translation you read. This morning, the word jumped out at me as I was reading the book “Lay…

Punched in the Chest!

I had been a Christian for many years when I realized I didn’t really know God……. I was recently talking with some friends and was able to put words to this reality I had faced several years ago.  It felt like I had been punched really hard in the chest.  I didn’t know God for…
