When Life Gives You Lemons

When life gave me an orchard full of lemons, I freaked out and ran through a multitude of worst case scenario’s. Then I stopped. I made the decision to think carefully and ON PURPOSE about what was happening and how I was going to respond to it.

When You’re Angry With God

Do you ever feel angry with God? Do you wonder if you’re being punished or if he even exists? I felt all of those things for a long time. Husbands aren’t supposed to die at 46.

The Bitter and the Sweet

Use your pain to transform how you move through the world. Learn to live in grace and love while never forgetting the brokenness. It is because of the bitter that we can fully experience the sweet.
