Joseph’s Story Will Inspire You

Joseph’s Story Will Inspire You

Everyone has a story to tell and many have stories that will inspire you. Some stories are funny and tragic, some are about heroes and others about wimps. Some stories can be depressing while others are exciting. There was once a Joseph who also had a very powerful story to tell. He may not have told it himself, but we can find his story told in the book of Genesis in the Bible. So what do we know ...[Read More]

Why Me? Walking the Tightrope

Why Me? Walking the Tightrope

Here is one of the questions God has probably heard millions of times today: Why me? There are moments in life when we hold conscious resistance to accepting the different happenings that come our way, mostly if they can be characterized as contrary to our plans. So we ask: “Why me?” Why do I have to be the one to undergo persecution? Why do I have to be the one who is faithful to God ...[Read More]

Can You Trust Your Feelings?

Can You Trust Your Feelings?

Talking about feelings at this point in life can give me chills. I will confess to you, if you can keep it a secret, I have lived long enough to see that this revolutionary apparatus living inside me called feelings can be dangerously tricky. Let me tell you how it works. Recently, I had a major surgery done to my body. Some loving, concerned people warned me to keep away from activities or anythi ...[Read More]

Sweet… 15? What Will Come Next?

Sweet… 15? What Will Come Next?

People around the world have a different idea about when and how to celebrate birthdays. All birthdays are important; no one will deny. It’s more than just another year of life to count. In Brazil, for example, if you allow me sharing some cultural information here, one date in particular is more important than others in the life of a girl. Turning 15 is a dream to come true! Differently from what ...[Read More]

Marathon Running

Marathon Running

The faith required for preparation Sometimes God calls us to run marathons. Marathons of faith. I have never actually participated in a marathon. I once almost finished a 5K. ‘Almost’ is a loose term … don’t look up the footage, thanks. But, if I understand this marathon business correctly it requires training. I imagine for a long time. More than just days or weeks … months. And on the day you de ...[Read More]

Life Is Not a Lipstick

Life Is Not a Lipstick

Go to a store and observe how girls choose a lipstick. Some like it red. Some like it pink. Some like all sorts of colors. Some like none. Some girls may wear expensive brand names, while others are just looking for another lipstick. It may be a matter of opinion or budget, but the fact is that some girls have to have it. This popular product comes in different shapes, sizes, and scents. It keeps ...[Read More]

BEST DAY Ever: Number 2673

BEST DAY Ever: Number 2673

I am such a wimp. Seriously. Who knew I’d be living in The Last Frontier, embracing and relishing the cold and snow and doing things like flying four-wheelers down a narrow, bumpy, muddy trail through moose and bear country, then pausing said wild ride to pick blueberries on the trail with my fellow female trailblazers. If you had told me I’d hold fairly limited qualms regarding the use of h ...[Read More]
