I have a bunch of new followers and I know it’s exam crunch time for many of you, so I thought I would remind you of one my writing endeavours! ~
Having raised my own children to adulthood, all of whom attended college or university, I unexpectedly felt a God nudge to write quick daily thoughts to encourage students in their educational journey. ~
Head on over to my website to sign up for a “Minute for Students” email that goes straight to your inbox every morning. I know how busy you are dear student, taking a minute for Jesus in the morning goes a long way 💙 (link in bio) … See MoreSee Less
Have you ever studied, memorized and felt you were prepared, then wrote an exam and still did not attain the grade you had hoped? This happens dear student, profound disappointment. All you can do is pick yourself up and continue on. You will succeed if you do not give up. God is with you and you will make it. With five children all attending college or university adding up to over 38 plus years of post secondary schooling – each one has had this happen, and each one had to pick themselves up and carry on. It’s hard. Sometimes I cried for them, and on occasion with them, however, to remain discouraged made things worse. Each one gave themselves time to process their disappointment, and then, time to get back in the game. All five of mine made it through and you can too. Keep going. Dear Heavenly Father, if I did what I wanted today, I’d quit! But that would just make me more discouraged. Please give me the strength to keep plugging. I know you are with me everyday. Please help me to accomplish today’s tasks. “I can do all things through you who gives me strength (Philippians 4:13) … See MoreSee Less

Long ago, when the angel Gabriel came to the elderly priest Zechariah saying that his prayer had been heard, he was so puzzled. Having long since given up praying for a son, he had moved on. Have you given up on a long-awaited prayer request? What’s amazing about this story is: when you make a request to God, your prayer is logged in heaven. I simply love that thought. My prayers are heard, and they are recorded. Watch for God to answer your prayers this Christmas season. Never give up praying. God hears you!
Do not be afraid Zechariah; your prayer has been heard, your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son. Luke 1:13 … See MoreSee Less
This photo reminds us to SLOW DOWN. Perhaps not to smell the roses, but certainly… to pick up the eggs! All of us need time for our bodies to coast. To have peace. To be quiet. To rest. I know life is moving at a hectic pace, and years ago as the young mother of five children, I found it hard to find quiet time too. Psalms 46:10 reminds us to: “Be still and know that He is God”. Be still; the Bible says. Probably that means today: turn over your phone, sound off. Listen to the quiet and breathe. “Be still and KNOW that He is God”. Jesus cares for you. … See MoreSee Less
