Tamar: You Matter To God

Last year, I wrote a blog post on “God and the Sex Scandal Lineage“. This year, I wrote a devotional study on the life of Tamar- the first woman listed in the genealogy of Jesus. Tamar was traumatized, abused, rejected, and she committed incest. Yet, God saw it fit to […]

God and the Sex Scandal Lineage

There is something interesting about the women/mothers mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus Christ. Tamar disguised as a prostitute to have sex with her father-in-law, Rahab was a prostitute, Ruth was a Moabite (a descendant of an incestuous relationship between Lot and his older daughter), Uriah’s wife (nameless in the […]

This is the miracle of Christmas: 2000+ years ago, God became flesh and dwelled amongst us for 30+ years, and today, he dwells in those who open up their hearts to him. We can celebrate and experience this miracle forever! The miracle of having a personal relationship with God. I […]

Thriving Christmas Alone as a New Single Mom

The holiday season is upon us. For many, it’s not the “most wonderful time of the year”, including new single moms. The pain of breakup, no matter how amicable, can feel exponentially greater during the holidays. Especially when you add the fact that, your children will be spending the holidays […]

A Short Christmas Message

Giving to someone who cannot return the favor is one of the most joyful things to do. As parents, we give the gift of time, love, money, and more to our children because that’s what parents do, and most times we expect nothing in return. Especially when our children are […]

Christmas Is About Giving and Receiving

In God’s kingdom, giving and receiving are important. While it is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35), receiving is also important. How can we fulfill God’s purpose for our lives if we do not receive God’s free gifts and enjoy the benefits of being a giver (Luke […]

The Season of Joy

What a joy to see the first day in December! How did you feel when you woke up this morning? I felt like the atmosphere shifted for good, and my heart was thankful for the new season. While there have been attempts to make the Christmas season less about Jesus, […]

Sleep in Heavenly Peace

“Sleep in Heavenly peace” is a beautiful melodic phrase taken from the timeless Christmas Carol classic, Silent Night. Baby Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords slept peacefully in his makeshift crib in a humble stall, while Herod and Jerusalem were troubled about his birth (Matthew 2:3). The […]

When Your Child Doesn’t Come Home For The Holidays

The Thanksgiving season didn’t go quite how I planned after sending my son a text…”love to have you over,” and received no response. How quickly a hurt momma wants to just cancel the day and crawl into bed until the next day. Does this sound familiar? If so, I’m sorry. […]

Manifesting the Wonder of Christmas

The day before Jesus was born, the earth was waiting for redemption and all the great things the presence of God in the flesh brought to earth. The birth of Jesus revealed the heart of the father. It revealed the love of God (John 3:16)- the God who manifests himself […]
