Our Minds

Our minds are powerful. What we think and the way we think influences our entire lives. It is where we make all decisions. Yes, every action we take is first “a thought” in our minds. Thus, the sum total of our actions (starting with our thoughts) determines the direction of our lives. Mining our minds […]

Standing

Being outnumbered is not a good feeling. I know that being in the minority can be intimidating. The best way to not fall prey to intimidation (which sometimes can include bullying) and manipulation is to be a God pleaser and not a man pleaser. Studying God’s Word can give you the encouragement needed to have […]

Gird Up!

How many times in life do we get angry, frustrated, disappointed or disgusted with people? You cannot get on the internet, turn on the TV, or listen to the radio without hearing the anger people have with others.

Gentleness

I don’t know of anyone who, if asked the question, “Do you want to be strong?” would say NO. Being strong is a very positive thing. Of course there is context to the meaning of the word “strong.” We can be strong physically, mentally, emotionally, or all three, or a combination thereof. If you asked […]

Starving Doubt

Doubt is the opposite of faith. When you are standing on the Tee box, or in the fairway of the golf course, and you are getting ready to hit a shot, doubt can be a “death wish” for being able to hit a good shot! As a golfing mom (spectating and fan only), I have […]
