This Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday---a time for parties, good food, and lots of football. (Okay, honestly, the football interests me the least---although I do hope Tom Brady wins). As we're prepping for this year's event, I'm remembering an event that was WAY more exciting at my house--the year that Payton Manning and the Denver Broncos went to the Super Bowl. Since my brother is a mega-Broncos fan, this was a VERY BIG DEAL!!! For a completely different reason, it was a big d

One of the best ways that we can invest our time during a season of failure is to allow the Holy Spirit to help us answer the question, "How Did We Get Here?" What is in my heart that caused me to make the decisions that brought us to this place? What are You trying to teach me through this time? Finding the answers to these questions is a great way to make our Failure a Detour rather than a Dead End. For more practical tips on to Overcome Failure, read our chapter on "Fail
So here’s the deal—-I’m a neat freak. I love organizing things. One of the things that I love most is bringing organization to a chaotic mess. Oh, the sense of accomplishment!
That’s why I have to admit that I was a little more than intrigued when I started seeing the reviews for Netflix’s new show “Tidying Up”. How fun! A show about organizing! As soon as the guys were invested in a football game, I decided to try it out.
Only it wasn’t long into the show when my
The truth is that time spent with Jesus or in the Bible is never wasted. It’s always an investment. I can promise you this----if you will commit to pursuing prayer and God’s Word---even if your circumstances don’t change, YOU WILL. So make the most of this time and spend time with Jesus and God’s Word. For more practical tips on to Overcome Failure, read our chapter on "Failure" in, Finding Healing.....
So a few days ago, I was crazy. No, please, there’s no need to say “I’m sure it wasn’t that bad” or “You’re being too hard on yourself.” I was there and I am self aware enough to admit that for about 18 hours I was not thinking rationally.

It didn’t take long until I located it—a bump on the very b
Have you ever thought about the fact that failure is a normal part of life? Most people have been there done that. The determining factor in whether your failure is the end or just a detour is ultimately up to you. You can sit back, be angry, pout, and essentially wait for God to move or you can make the most of it.

It was New Year's Eve and I was cozy and warm inside in my pajamas. From my comfy couch, I watching people stand in the pouring rain in Times Square. (I’m sorry, but at my age, that just does not look like fun.). As I was flipping through the channels, one of the interviewers started interviewing a handsome young man. Apparently, he is the new Bachelor—only this season has a twist. The bachelor is a virgin.
Right away I thought, “Oh, here we go again.”
Because I’ve b
