Becoming a little more like Jesus everyday! This podcast is a ministry to all who are seeking to authentically deepen their relationship with God. Using scripture and a host of personal experiences, this ministry urges us all to get up again after every failure and to humbly realize perfection in this life is not attainable. However, joy, peace and abundance are waiting as we traverse this journey of "becoming!"
He Got Up (and You Can, Too)
It's almost Resurrection Sunday! Do you feel like you need some things to be resurrected in your life? We have hope in Jesus, and because He rose, we can get up again, too!
On this episode, I talk about 5 simple, practical tips for getting back up again when life keeps knocking you down.
Your Suffering Isn't for Nothing
No one likes to suffer! In fact, we all do all we can to avoid it. However, pain is a fact of life. On today's episode, we talk about the value of suffering and some of its important spiritual benefits:
1. Suffering produces endurance.
2. Suffering produces character & growth.
3. Suffering produces maturity.
4. Suffering teaches obedience.
Your trial can become your testimony! Hang in there, my friend.

When You Feel Powerless
Inevitably, at various intervals in our lives we will encounter situations about which we feel powerless. Things will come at us that affect us that we simply cannot control. For me, a known control-freak, this is especially distressing! We love to imagine that we to be the designers of our destiny, but the simple-yet-difficult truth is that we are not.
As is most-often the case, I am in the midst of a situation right now where I am having to learn this. I hope to be able to share details at a later time, but suffice it to say that my family is presently embroiled in a circumstance involving world systems and life-altering decisions. Yet, we have very little (if any) true influence in the outcome.
I am learning again to lean on Jesus. Maybe I’m actually learning this really for the first time! As I pondered this thought today, I thought I’d share some encouragement on how to peacefully navigate a situation outside the realm of your control.
1) Relinquish Control
2) Submit Again to God's Sovereignty
3) Manage Your Emotions Through Prayer
4) Refuse to be Consumed by the Issue
5) Seek Godly Support
