    Revitalizing My Journey to Refresh

    Businesses, marketing, services, oh my! If someone were to tell me I’d be doing all of these things and more, five years ago I would have looked at them and said, “You’ve lost your ever-loving mind.” I then would have eased in the phrase we all love, ” The devil is a lie” and mosied on my merry way. You see, for those unaware, I’ve been blogging since 2016. My first blog was known as“Christians in College,” which led to “REFRESH Magazine” and now I’m here on “My Journey to REFRESH”. During my transitions, I experienced severe doubt. I doubted my work not being good enough. I was envious of…

    It’s Time to A.C.T!

    Growing up  I dreaded attending Wednesday night bible study.  In those two hours, church members would sing off-key hymns, clap offbeat, and messages would go forth I never understood. One night, during the service, I recall the pastor making a statement that everyone goes through something. Puzzled with pigtails, a notebook to doodle in,  and an urgency for the benediction, I remember thinking, “Not me!”  Outside of my aggravating school teachers and crushes who could care less about me, I really didn’t go through anything. I was aware of God, my mom loved me and my grades were decent.  I mean what true issues did I have?  I wish I…

    You ARE NOT the Father!

    Do you recall watching The Maury Show growing up? What about The Jerry Springer Show? If so, I’m sure one of your favorite lines were: “You ARE NOT the Father.” I know mine was! On Maury, a woman would gracefully walk off stage or have a full-blown tantrum, while the man would get his two-step on because of the wonderful news. On  the Jerry Springer Show, a woman would jump up and attack the woman who messed around with her husband and one of their wigs would be snatched off. Back then, those shows provided me with great entertainment and pleasure. However, I would have never imagined they would effect…

    Are You Ready to be a Disciple?

    If you could describe yourself as a disciple, which one would you be? Would you be one who’s all about the money, like Matthew the tax collector, or one who needs to see and touch things to declare they are real like doubting Thomas? Personally, I would describe myself as disciple Peter. One day he’s rolling with Jesus the next day he’s not. One minute he’s slicing ears off of warriors for Jesus, the next day he has amnesia. Similar to Peter I have had my tug of war days with Jesus.  Yet, whenever I fall I ALWAYS get up just as Peter did many times before. From a fisherman…
