Drawing Near

I find that when I keep my mind on God throughout the day, making it a priority, my days are full of joy and peace.   I’m more grateful, my steps have purpose, and fear melts away.  I pray the same for you as you go about your day!  Draw near to Him today, and experience His presence like never before!



Good morning all!  I’ve been lead to some great books, and this is one of them.  Between Heaven & the Real World by Christian singer Steven Curtis Chapman is real, inspiring, and a beautiful read.  Steven’s music touches hearts and raises them to new heights, and his book is no different.  Trust me, this book has elements that will BOOST your faith; such as what was written in the smoke as Steven’s family home was being rebuilt! {complete with a picture that will blow you away}.  See for yourself!  Thank you Steven, and family, for this book that touched my heart and became a special part of my journey.


I currently have this verse as my ‘home screen’ on my cell phone.  No coincidence there, I believe He wants me to keep saying this to myself, to KNOW it in my Spirit.

No matter what the world says, or what I may think about myself sometimes, my God sees me as beautiful!  It doesn’t say ‘He calls me beautiful one… when I do everything right, when I am perfect for Him, when I wear the right size’.  No.  He calls you BEAUTIFUL one, ALWAYS.  Even right now, just as you are.

Stand on His Word,

He calls you beautiful one. XO


A friend of mine recently told me about the You Version Bible App.  It’s great!  I love resources like this, to get the Word in front of me often.  With this particular app you can create your own Verse Images {like the one below}!  Save them in your photos on your phone and make them Instagram posts, use them as a reminder of Truth daily as your cell phone Wallpaper or Lock Screen, etc.  Download it here, for free!


I’m excited to share a book with you.  Friendly, witty, and hard to put down, Holly Wagner helps us to use God’s Word to gain sanity, and peace in life’s storms.  Thank you, Holly, for the great and VERY helpful book Find Your Brave.
