Can you let go and let God… have His way?

Faith is a powerful thing!  Although it goes against our natural way of thinking and doing things. Yes when Peter stepped out of the boat and walked onto the water, he saw the winds and began to sink, called for help and Jesus saved him. But the key is that Peter STEPPED OUT of the boat, […]

Should clergy attire be trendy?

I have grown up around and been inspired by so many women in ministry. These women are strong, confident, they know who they are and they know who their God is. They trust God with every area of their lives yet they’re not weak, some how, they’re stronger then most. In the midst of intense, […]
