    In Psalms 24:1 it’s clear that everything on the earth is God’s “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him.” If you own a possession, then you control it, right? God is powerful and could use us as puppets to carry out His will, but that is not what He […]

    Each year stores begin carrying holiday décor and the “perfect” presents earlier and earlier because research and sales have shown that the more customers see the same holiday messaging, the more they will purchase. This causes a few problems regardless if you are a child, teenager, parent or single adult. The more you see, the more you want. You overspend. […]

    Parents tell their kids what to do, but kids remember actions far longer than words. Your daily choices affect your kids and seeds are sown that are either fruitful or unfruitful. You may have had a parent that constantly sowed seeds of mistrust, dishonesty and lack of love, but you can change this behavior and help guide future generations to […]

    No one considers themselves a negative person, but there are symptoms and actions that are characteristic of sowing seeds of negativity. Do you tell yourself and believe these messages lies? “I’m not skinny enough.” “I’m not smart enough.” “I don’t have the training.” “I have never been a runner, so I never will be.” “That employer won’t think I’m good […]

    It can be easy to fall into this trap, but the short answer is NO! You can influence someone, but you cannot force a person’s decisions.

    2 Corinthians 9:6 “The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will reap bountifully.” What does it mean to sow seeds? Sowing seeds can be compared to the actions of a farmer. A farmer plants seeds and expects the seeds to produce a harvest. During the waiting period the farmer waters the planted […]

They “need” every toy and the newest fashions. Instead of giving in, why not turn the experience into a teachable moment? Ask them if […]
