Waiting Patiently

I always wondered why I could not hear from God. Now I know why. I never sat still long enough to hear from him. I always spoke to him, but I never gave him the chance to respond. I never sat still long enough to hear from God. I like most people do not like to wait. Honestly, it is often frustrating. Unfortunately,  it's a part of life. I have learned that God does things on his time and not on my time. In order to see what God has planned for means my family, I have to be receptive. I have to withdraw from certain people, be calm, relax, be still and wait to hear from the Lord. 
So as my days go by, I am waiting quietly before God, for my hope is in him. I am waiting patiently for him to act, respond, guide me and move things around for me and my family. I am waiting expectantly while fully relying on and trusting God to help. Listed below are a few bible verses that I have been reading about being still. Hoepfulk y they may help you as they are helping me on a daily basis.
Be still so you won't miss the great things God is doing.
1 Samuel 12:16, Job 37:14  
Be still. It's the antidote to fretting.
Psalm 37:7 
Be still and know He is God.
Psalm 46:10  
Let Jesus rebuke your storms, "Peace, be still."
Mark 4:39

Your Child Is LGBT..It's Not The End Of The World!

I am not a parent of a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT) child, so I cannot say I understand what a parent of a LGBT child is going through. However, I have friends and family members who are and have children who are LGB so I can relate to a certain degree. Growing up I had friends who were gay and who were lesbians. A few of them told me and a few of them hid it from me. Why? I have no idea. What they failed to realize was I already knew, but I wanted them to tell me on their own. It is on no account painless for mothers and fathers to find out that their son or daughter is a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Nor is it any easier for the child to tell their mother, father, friends or other family members that they are or may be a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. I remember the day someone very close to me told me he was attracted to guys. He was so nervous. As he began to speak, he started stuttering and sweating bullets. After he finished speaking I did no

Being a Bold Leader

Stop and think about the following questions.   1. What does it mean to be bold? 2. What does it mean to be a leader?  3. Would you consider yourself bold, a leader or a bold leader?  There are several definitions and interpretations of what it means to be bold and to be a leader. My interpretation of being bold is not being afraid to take risks or make decisions (that lead to a positive result). I also think being bold is displaying confidence and courage as someone works to fulfill their purpose in the world. My interpretation of a leader is someone who has good organization skills which is required when working in a team setting or organization. I also think leaders stand behind their teams and works diligently to bring out the best in everyone. My interpretation of a bold leader is a combination of bold and leaders previously stated above. In addition, a bold leader is someone who has a clear vision, purpose, and a plan of action. It is someone who can get tho

What is happening to her? Puberty!

Today, our kids are exposed to so much information. Unfortunately, not all information is true and nor is the information from credible sources. However, discussions such as puberty among other topics should occur with the parents. Puberty is a very difficult stage for girls, boys and the family. They are very temperamental and often feel insecure. So as parents, it is our responsibility to reassure them that the changes they are going through emotionally, mentally and physically are normal. Puberty has reared its ugly head in my home. You would think I would be prepared since I have experienced this with my older daughter. The truth is I am prepared. However, I was not expecting it to happen so quickly. I have noticed kids are experiencing puberty a lot faster than in prior generations. Sadly, this has a lot to do with the meat and dairy. There are a lot of chemicals in our food and as a result of that, it is making our children develop a lot faster. As an adult, I do not recal
