Stop Following Your Heart

“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?" - Jeremiah 17:9 To anyone who has heard this verse a plethora of times, it's easy to skim over the verse without much thought - to say, "Yeah, I know, 'Don't follow your heart'," and move on.  But how often do we really stop...

Dear Heart, I Can Not Listen

Dear Heart, Many days, I make the mistake of listening to you. Maybe it was that long, frustrating day. That dreaded conversation. That fact that I screwed up - again.

Why Are You Afraid?

I am always amazed by how much we don't do because of fear. Be it fear of what people will think, fear of failure, or fear that I will not be able to make ends meet, I have always been a fearful individual. Sadly, these fears of "what-if's" and "what will they think" have prevented... Continue Reading →
