Ask & You Shall Receive

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. – Matthew 7:7-8 (I totally looked that up.) “Ask and you shall receive” is an expression we often hear thrown around […]

Why the Healed Becomes the Healer

The Universe sent me one very clear message this week, the same message came from three different sources: 1. a Rob Bell podcast 2. a Joel Osteen sermon and 3. the wide-eye-opening book Power vs. Force by David Hawkins.

Coaching & the Milkman

A few weeks back, after I knew that Lillybee was about to be sold, I prayed for insight (using the method I shared last week). It was bedtime, but before I crawled in, I laid down on the floor and became very clear about my intention, which was to go to sleep and wake with answers or at least a […]

How I Pray

My friends, husband, Mom and I recently took this test to learn our “Love Language.” The five options are: Words of Praise, Acts of Service, Quality Time, Touch, and Presents.
