How Ten Amazing Women Found Beauty From The Ashes (and how you can, too)

Have you ever experienced a broken place in your life? Ever walked through the loss of a relationship, physical or emotional abuse, depression, anxiety and felt your heart shatter into a thousand tiny little pieces before it burned into nothingness.


I am so privileged to share my testimony with Certified Life Coach and Speaker, Ginny Priz, alongside nine other amazing ladies who have experienced some of life’s greatest challenges and who have experienced God breathing new life and new hope into the driest, deadest places as only He can.


There is hope. There is a future. There is beauty that can arise from the ashes!


I pray you click over and watch these women as they share their hearts and their stories.


Please share with your friends on social media. We never know who in our lives is desperate to hear a message of hope today!


Blessings and Merry Christmas!


The Journey To Becoming His Beloved

I’m so blessed to be sharing today at

(in) !

I was always an anxious kid. I cried at my first piano recital and begged not to play. I finally relented and played anyway. I was permanently attached to my mom’s leg whether we were at church, at school, or even the grocery store.


There was no end to what I was afraid of. I was afraid of the monsters in the closet, afraid of my teachers, afraid of the popular kids in school. I was afraid of myself, of being rejected, of being ridiculed, of not being enough. And as I realized much later, I was also afraid of God… 

I’d love to have you stop by and read more of my story. If you are encouraged, I’d love for you to share!

How I Leverage My Time To Maximize My Peace

I’ve always been intentional with my time. It’s one of the most important tools I have. It impacts nearly everything I do. Well, almost everything.


Like many others, time is always something of which I never seem to have enough. Too many distractions and too many demands make it difficult to accomplish the goals I have set.

I Have a Tiny Request For You

Yes, you! You have been a part of my journey. You have faithfully walked with me as I have shared the story of my past, the brokenness that held me captive for so long. You’ve also witnessed me detail the healing and the abundance that I’ve discovered in all areas of my life – my relationship with God, my relationship with myself, especially my relationship with others.

My story isn’t so unique. We’ve all had our share of struggles. We’ve all faced mountains we were sure we couldn’t climb. I want you to know that you are not alone. I pray weekly over my community, that God would indeed “heal your heartbreaks and bind up your wounds.” (Psalm 147:3) My passion for the “Peace for a Lifetime” community is to help you know and experience the life, the hope, the abundance that God has for you.

My request,my tiny request is this: our book, the book you helped me birth, is scheduled to launch in two weeks! Would you consider clicking here on Thunderclap to support the book?  It will take under 30 seconds.

Not sure what Thunderclap is?  Well I wasn’t either.  But it’s pretty simple.  By clicking to support the book, you help automatically send out a message via Twitter or Facebook at 11:00am on release day (March 7).  It’ll be like a giant social media flashmob of people encouraging friends and family to check out the book! BUT here’s the catch –> if less then 100 people join, there’s no flash mob. 99? Doesn’t work. So join on Twitter! Join on Facebook! Invite your friends to join!!! You’ll be supporting the book on release day without even lifting a finger!

And here’s the best part, everyone who registers will automatically be entered for a chance to win  a FREE copy of the book!  WOW!!!  Invite EVERYONE to join!!!   And you’ll be doing me a HUGE favor in the process. Join the Thunderclap now!



Many blessings to you, friend!

How God Can Use Our Wounds To Make Us Whole  


Our wounds leave us feeling frail, broken, desperately unwhole. It seems like everyone around us must be living the abundant life, but with our wounds, that kind of life feels like an impossibility. We feel helpless. Hopeless.

Why Falling Down Is Never the End of the Story

I fell. I fell hard.


A few days ago my husband and I were out doing errands. We had just finished a long-overdue lunch with our dearest friends. We dropped by the mall to pick up a few items. With my flat white latte in hand, we were finally done. We found our way to the parking lot, ready to head home. As I approached the car to get in, my ankle twisted in my cute new wedge sandals, and I came tumbling down. Down. Continue reading

I sat and listened to him fill in the missing puzzle pieces of his life. With each story, a mixture of joy and pain. There is the distinct realization that in every event, every experience, we were missing. Continue reading
