Ask yourself the questions of what if? What if I surrendered myself entirely to the Father’s plan? What if I allowed the Holy Spirit to guide ALL my steps, where would he lead me? What if I loved Jesus with all my heart, mind and soul, what would be transformed in my life?Read More
My struggle is part of the growth trajectory that God has prescribed for me. He knows that I crave human approval more than I crave His approval. When my fellow humans don’t meet my inexplicable, underlying needs born out of my insecurity, my woeful, needy self is forced to fall on my knees and seek out the only approval that even counts for anything.Read More
When God is the One asking, you don’t have to worry about whether or not you’re good enough.
You don’t have to be a superstar.
You just have to say yes.Read More
The best way to care for others is to first care for my own soul. We as high capacity leaders need to model the way. If we are too busy, our heads are too full, we are over-extended in responsibilities, we are no use to our team.Read More
Humility has not always been a cultural value, it is often misunderstood and therefore not high on the attribute list for leaders, but as a Christian, it is foundational.Read More
All over the world, we see leaders crash and burn in the worst ways, simply because something went wrong when it came to using their gift of leadership well. A fundamental aspect of leading well begins with knowing how to react when your leadership is challenged.Read More
It is so easy to get into the mindset that our money is ours, our marriage is ours, our life is ours. Things that were intended for God’s glory, we are now glorifying instead of Him.Read More
I have seen firsthand that in order to have balance between family and ministry, Christ needs to be placed in the top spot. With Christ in the centre of everything we do, the balance we so desperately crave will fall into place!Read More
I am convinced that the greatest battle I will ever face in life is the battle to protect my heart. I must diligently govern the health and condition of my heart, making it my top priority. I am the sole custodian of my heart, and if it’s neglected, it’s not protected.Read More
Have you stopped to really honour what God is trying to show you?Read More
God didn’t create us to just carry out orders. He created us in His image, to be with Him and to be like Him. And being like Him means making decisions! As God is growing us in His image, He is growing us as decision-makers and the reality is, that would be hard to do if we never had to make any decisions.Read More
In reality, our ministries are not ours. They are His. If He’s not in it – then I want no part of it. If it’s His- and He’s invited me to partner, then all I need to do is be present with Him and to love others.Read More
From a young age, even before my family had trusted Christ, they had taught me to pray. I had this powerful gift of knowing God was personal, and I knew that He could see and hear me. This truth has kept me going on so many occasions, and I believe that it has impacted those I love in ways both seen, and unseen.Read More
A plan gives you the ability to focus in, and then allow the things you are learning to build on each other over time.Read More
When I think of being part of a team, I shudder. My mind is instantly filled with flashbacks of my life between the ages of 12-18, when my life was filled with group projects at school. If you are a fellow Type A, you know exactly why I shudder. If you are Types B-Z, you might be confused as to where I am coming from, so let me explain.Read More
We arrived just as they were harvesting the wheat in their fields – the crop was ready and there was much work that had to be done so everyone literally had their hand to the ‘plough’. So rather than eat a meal in their home or in a café, a beautiful table, chairs and delicious meal was brought to the fields. It was the closest I had ever been to a wheat field during harvest and the words Jesus spoke in John 4 were shouting to my spirit.Read More
Up until recently, my definition of planning in the dark was identical with doing things at the last minute, and for what seems like the millionth time, the Lord has shown me otherwise.Read More
While I prefer the terms particular, high capacity or pursuing excellence, the reality others experience may have some substance to it.
It is true that I have been known to re-do a chore my sons have completed so it is “done right”, or meddle in a co-worker’s project, thinking I could make it better. I have frustrated my husband as he tackles his “honey-do list” and colleagues have been gentle to remind when I need to back off.
