I’ve always believed in the power of words. I am careful about the words that I say. Even though I consider myself a confident woman, I am sensitive to words that people voice. If I'm being honest, I am pretty sure everyone can relate to this fine line. I believe my years of studying God's Word, coupled with my personality traits, have contributed to my interest. But more recently, I realized how powerful the words “thank you” are in exchange for “I’m sorry”.Read More
Sometimes get messages from followers saying that posting about “getting ready” makes them feel bad because they are tired, they are moms and they can’t just be a “perfect mom” like I am. That makes me really sad.

I was listening to this podcast the other day while I was driving. And the guy was talking about the power of thought. He said - our brains are ancient (like caveman status).
