Choosing the High Road

Aug 12, 2019

I am a person who sees matters in black and white. There is no gray area with me. Right is right and wrong is wrong, and there’s very little in between. This trait of mine can serve me well on some days but not so well on other days. I am also very justice minded….

Just a Reminder

Jul 29, 2019

I sure as heck don’t know about you, but sometimes I just need a little reminder. A little reminder that everything’s going to be okay. A little reminder that I’m doing the right thing. Even a little “check engine” reminder from my car to change my oil. I can get so bogged down with the…

Against All Odds

Jul 22, 2019

I’m not a gambler 🙂 but I love to beat the odds. I love it when I can do something or be something or accomplish something that everyone says cannot be done. I love it even more when God beats the odds! When our culture, our world, our communities, perhaps even our friends and family…

Which Way is Your Heart Moving?

Jul 15, 2019

“(I despise) anything that moves my heart away from You.” (Psalm 101:3 TPT) I’m afraid in the times we are living, with technology advancing at record speed, with our obsession of “likes” and “followers,” with all the information, news, celebrity gossip, and stranger’s lives playing out on our devices like a soap opera, we’ve allowed…

Sitting at the Water’s Edge

Jul 8, 2019

When we think of a summer vacation, most people think of the beach. Packing up the family, loading up the car with food, water rafts, shovels and buckets as everyone is so excited for hours of fun in the sun. Every time we go to the beach, as I’m sitting in my beach chair at…

When Your Brook Dries Up

Jul 1, 2019

It’s the worst. When you realize that what has been there all along is suddenly no longer there. When what has been familiar, comfortable and predictable is no longer an option for you . When you are questioning God as to why His promises that you once believed to be true just aren’t coming to…

Trusting God

Jun 24, 2019

TRUST is a big word. A hard word. A word that so many people have a difficult time with. Trust is hard to regain if you’ve lost it. Trust is hard to give when you are not certain how it will be handled. Trusting in a human being can be nerve-wracking; trusting in someone you…

Stuck in the Coop

Jun 17, 2019

I knew it would happen eventually. I knew my fear would become a reality one day. I just knew that I would be completely helpless when it finally did happen. And then… one day, it happened. I got stuck in the chicken coop. It was very early in the morning; the sun hadn’t yet risen….

Forgive Them Anyway

Jun 10, 2019

We can all attest to the pain and hurt caused by friends, family, coworkers, bosses, and even perfect strangers. I know that you’ve had your fair share of that pain. I have too. I grew up in a household where the reconciliation process between friends and family members was mandated until it became a habit….

Don’t Miss It

Jun 3, 2019

Hello! My name is Hannah and I suffer from a severe case of a disease called “FOMO.” What is “FOMO” you ask? FOMO stands for “Fear Of Missing Out.”  I have a Type A personality and love to be around all of the people… all of the time! Nothing makes me happier than to be…

Behold

May 27, 2019

I love the way God uses His Word to speak to me. One morning while reading through the M’Cheyne Reading Plan, I came across the words “And behold.” I was so attracted the word “behold” I circled it and moved on to my next reading. This plan brings you through two chapters in the Old…

When Anxiety Was Great Within Me

May 20, 2019

“When anxiety is great within me, Your consolation (comfort) brought joy to my soul.” ~ Psalm 94:19 (NIV) There is not a person on the planet that has not experienced some kind of anxiety during their lifetime. Truth be told, most people experience anxiety every single day. In the world that we live in today,…

Pass it Down

May 13, 2019

As we just celebrated Mother’s Day, my prayer for you sweet Mama is that you felt (and continue to feel) as loved, as cherished and as treasured as you deserve! I pray that you are beginning to see some of the “fruit” of your labor as you’ve raised babies, children, teenagers, young adults, and now,…

I Choose You

May 6, 2019

A couple of years ago, we bought a house with property and inherited two large dogs. We were given a choice of whether we wanted the dogs or not, but when the previous owner told us she would have to take them to the shelter if we did not want them, our heart strings were…

The Year of Promise

Apr 29, 2019

Something happened to me this past Christmas Eve that has never happened to me in my lifetime. I have never had God speak to me a specific “word” for a new upcoming year… until now. While I have had God give me direction, clarity, and encouragement for a new year, I had not heard Him…

A Deep Cut

Apr 22, 2019

I have a beautiful Satsuma tree in my front yard and tons of wild blackberry bushes on our property. When we first bought our home and property, the Satsuma tree was so overgrown and untended to that it’s branches were laying on the ground. The blackberry bushes were equally overgrown and out of control. So…

When God Shows Up

Apr 15, 2019

I am fascinated with the women of the Bible. I love reading the stories about their lives and find myself so grateful to God that He included these women in the Scriptures. Some of the women we read about are wonderful, living godly, righteous lives, but other women we read about have lived very hard,…

A Tribute to One of the Sweetest Souls I’ve Known

Apr 8, 2019

My husband’s sweet grandmother, who lived 91 full, beautiful years, passed away a few weeks ago. He had the honor of preaching at her funeral, as family and friends gathered to celebrate her remarkable life.  She was a mother of seven children, a grandmother of 49 grandchildren and great grandchildren. Emma Corrine Swatzel was one…

Spring is for Planting

Apr 1, 2019

Spring has officially “sprung” on the calendar and you can certainly tell by going into your local nurseries and garden centers. These stores are buzzling with customers right now. Everyone is out in their yards and cleaning, fertilizing, planting, etc. preparing for spring and summer. After a cold, dreary, rainy winter season here in South…

Look for the Rays

Mar 25, 2019

In South Louisiana, we have had months and months of cloudy, dreary days. The news even reported that during an entire recent month, we have only had one day of sunshine… until this week. Just today, our local meteorologist posted on his social media: “Spring Sunshine Warning! When: this week What: a bright object in…

Who Are You in the Wait?

Mar 18, 2019

Sometimes it feels like I have spent over half of my life waiting. When I was younger, I waited for birthdays, vacations, my favorite show to come on tv, sleepovers, or Santa. As I got older I waited for grades to be posted, football games, movie premieres, and college acceptance letters. More recently I have…

Singing in the Dark

Mar 11, 2019

My husband and I have lived in the country for over a year now and we still love it! The sounds of nature are magnified in the countryside: birds chirping, cows mooing, chickens cackling, the breeze blowing through the trees ~ nature singing its own song. It’s no wonder that God’s Word tells us to…

A Mind At Ease

Feb 25, 2019

“I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the…

How 30 years of Marriage Has Changed Me

Feb 18, 2019

30 years ago today, February 18th, Eugene and I stood before both of our pastors and made a covenant with God and with each other to spend the rest of our lives together. I often look back on that day, so many years ago, and think to myself: “God must have assigned extra guardian angels…

The Power of Your Influence

Feb 11, 2019

God created women to be influencers. We don’t have to look any further than the Garden of Eden in Genesis chapter 3 to see how Eve influenced her husband to commit the first sin. We use our influence every single day of our lives, whether we realize it or not. We either influence for good…

Fill My Cup, Lord

Feb 4, 2019

I was raised in a church where we sang hymns every Sunday. There are very few hymns, even to this day, that I don’t know. I know almost every word of those old, dear hymns and even if I should hear one sung today, it always takes me back to our little church when I…

He is Still Good

Jan 28, 2019

A few months ago, I had the privilege of going to our church’s annual pastors gathering. There’s just something about gathering together as a spiritual family that does your heart good. During one of our prayer times, I felt like God kept putting the word “still” on my heart. Not like “be still” but “even…

Even There

Jan 14, 2019

Have you ever experienced a time in your life when all is going well and you wake up one day and life just isn’t good anymore? Maybe it was a traumatic event like a divorce, job loss, or death of a family member or the end of a treasured friendship. Or maybe it gradually snuck…

The Next Step

Jan 7, 2019

Happy New Year! I’ve never been one to make New Year’s resolutions. In my own personal experience and observations, it seems as if by February or March all the resolutions we’ve made have fallen by the wayside, leaving us feeling defeated so soon after making our to-do lists for the new year.   But if…

The Great Gift Exchange

Dec 17, 2018

Gift giving can be tricky. What do you give the person who has everything? Or the person you had not planned on giving a gift but they unexpectedly give you a gift? Or the person who gives you a beautifully thoughtful gift but your gift to them wasn’t nearly as thoughtful? The giving of gifts…

The Gift of the Thorn-part 2

Dec 11, 2018

(if you missed last week’s devotional, please read part 1) (4) My thorn is personal… between me and God. The apostle Paul never speaks of what his thorn was, though many theologians believe that it was a physical ailment. Paul used great discretion in speaking about the details of his “thorn” and we would be…

The Gift of the Thorn: Part 1

Dec 4, 2018

Christmas can be the most wonderful time of the year. It’s about families coming together to celebrate the birth of God’s Son. But it can also be the most difficult season of the year. It seems as if at Christmas time (or any other holiday) there is a gigantic spotlight shining on our families, magnifying…

How to Have a Merry Christmas in a Messed Up World

Nov 26, 2018

Why is it becoming harder and harder each Christmas season to keep “the main thing, the main thing”? Every year, as Christmas approaches, we promise ourselves that we are not going to be stressed out, but then find ourselves secretly wishing for Christmas (and the holidays) to be over. A recent study showed that more…

It Really Is AMAZING

Nov 19, 2018

GRACE is never a word I heard or experienced much growing up. Not in my family or in my church. Though I am grateful for both of them, neither used the word “grace” too often, if at all. Both were about the “rules,” the black and white of right and wrong. Not too much gray…

Heart Deep

Oct 22, 2018

  My husband and I had only been married a couple of years when I had the bright idea that we needed to get a dog. It did not matter that, at the time, neither one of us were really animal people. I just thought getting a dog was a great idea and somehow, through…

The One Common Denominator

Oct 15, 2018

My husband and I have been in full-time pastoral ministry for over 30 years, and over those three decades, we have had the privilege of walking with people through a lot of seasons of their lives. We have seen many people grow greatly in their relationship with God and, as a result, their lives have…

Living

Oct 8, 2018

    I asked one of my sweet friends to share this week’s devotional. Her writing is beautiful but her heart, even more beautiful. If you have suffered a loss of any kind, this devotional will speak such comfort & encouragement to you! And please let my friend know just how much this blessed you! It…

At Just the Right Time

Oct 1, 2018

It’s always easier seeing the hand of God when we look back over our lives than it is looking forward. Looking forward into the future, we see uncertainty and the unknown, having to walk by faith that God is going to meet us in all that’s ahead of us. But as we look back, into…

What’s In Your Hands Today?

Sep 24, 2018

We live in a culture where everyone wants everything QUICK. We are a people who have no patience with people or with circumstances.  If we can’t order something online and receive it in two days, then we’re not shopping with that retailer any longer. If we have to wait in line longer than a couple…

No Pain Please

Sep 17, 2018

I know a little something about pain. In the past seven years, I’ve had FOUR surgeries: A total reconstruction of my foot, skin cancer removal, two different knee surgeries, plus an upcoming fifth surgery: a total knee replacement. (All of these, except two, have been due to past sports injuries from my younger years!) To say that I…

Digging Deeper

Sep 4, 2018

“How enriched are they who find their strength in the Lord.  Even when their path winds through the dark valley of tears, they DIG DEEP to find a pleasant pool where others find only pain.” (Psalm 84:5-6, TPT) The job of digging is hard. Whether it’s digging a flower bed in your yard, or digging…

Changing Our Reputation

Aug 27, 2018

“Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” ~ Mark Twain In a world seemingly void of graciousness and common decency, kindness can go a long way.  The actual definition of kindness is: “treating people with respect,” and that is something so hard to find in today’s world, even…

Sending Them Out

Aug 20, 2018

I have had many discussions with parents lately (mamas, in particular) as they have been preparing to send their children back to school, and many of them off to college for the first time. Whether it’s back to school or off to college, the emotional roller coaster that parents feel is a very real thing….

First Steps

Aug 13, 2018

I’m so excited about today! I’ve asked a very special guest to write this week’s devotional! I have been feeling a real challenge from God lately to speak to & encourage our young women leaders to rise up and begin to use their voice and influence for this younger generation of women. Today’s devotional is…

The Day I Quit

Aug 6, 2018

I’ve never been a quitter…ever. Not in a sporting game that involved me, an assignment given to me, a responsibility asked of me, or a dream entrusted to me. I am not a quitter. But two years ago, I decided to quit. Not in my marriage, not in my life, but in ministry. I had convinced…

Who’s Following You?

Jul 30, 2018

I’ve heard it said that you are not a leader if no one is following you.  And while some of you might not consider yourself a leader, it doesn’t change the fact that you have somebody following you. Every generation has a generation before them and one coming behind them.  It’s the way God intended….

You Asked For It

Jul 23, 2018

I have always been an avid reader. Even as a child, the library was one of my favorite places to go. My hometown library was only one block from my house and during the summer, I would go there every single day! I loved the smell of the library, I loved the look and feel…

Don’t Lose Your Wonder

Jul 16, 2018

When God created all of heaven and earth, He created it with an ebb and flow. Seasons that ebb and flow…come and go…with no one making it happen, except our Creator. Nature ebbs and flows. Time ebbs and flows. And our life ebbs and flows.  As I look back over my life now, I don’t…

Who’s Really On the Throne?

Jul 9, 2018

My daughters and I have a phrase that we say to one another whenever we feel that it’s warranted. We always say “don’t be judgy” — meaning “don’t judge me.” It’s all in good fun, and I say it to them often as they’re making comments to me about my hair, my outfit, or any…

Clean Hands & A Pure Heart

Jul 2, 2018

  There is a prayer I’ve prayed over my life for decades: Psalm 24:4 “He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully.” My prayer is that I would have “clean hands and a pure heart” in all that I do and…

Moving Forward

Jun 25, 2018

Life is lived in seasons ~ both in the natural and in the spiritual.  Just as natural seasons come and go, spiritual seasons do as well. But there are times when we have the control as to how long we remain in a particular season, simply by making a decision to MOVE FORWARD. I read…

Smooth Stones

Jun 18, 2018

Several months ago, my husband and I were in San Diego, CA for some meetings, and I took full advantage of the beautiful weather by taking a walk on the beach one afternoon while Eugene was in one of his meetings. It soon became very apparent that this beach was unlike the Florida beaches that…

When You Can’t See the Footprints

Jun 11, 2018

 “Your path led through the sea, Your way through the mighty waters, though Your footprints were not seen.” Psalm 77: 19 (NIV) The author of this Psalm (Asaph) was recounting the faithfulness of God to the Israelites. In this verse, he was referring to the miracle God performed in parting the Red Sea. The Israelites had…

Gratitude + Grace

Jun 4, 2018

I think we would all agree that we want to live a life that pleases God. I know I certainly do! Psalms 50: 23 (TPT) tells us exactly how to do that: “The life that pleases Me is a life lived in the gratitude of grace, always choosing to walk with Me in what is right.”…

Can You See My Eyes?

May 22, 2018

When my children were young, we would be in church, a store, or just in public in general, and when they started to misbehave, I only needed to give them “the look” for them to realize that they had better shape up and get in line.  Even now they joke about “the eyebrow” that I…

The Pain of Injury vs. The Pain of Recovery

May 21, 2018

A few months ago, I made my annual trip to Haiti to speak at Coreluv’s women’s conference. This was my 7th year to go, but this year instead of one women’s conference, we had three. We were at two different locations with three women’s services, seven FULL days of travel, speaking, prayer meetings, devotionals, staff…

Starting Over

May 14, 2018

I don’t know about you, but I love fresh starts, new beginnings.   Whether it’s beginning a new book that doesn’t have the words underlined or scribbles in it yet, writing in a new journal, (with its clean, white, unwritten pages) or even better yet, journeying into a new, fresh, season of life that’s yet…

How To See God

Sep 28, 2017

Check out our latest message from Soul Night on September 24, 2017 – How To See God. You can also view the Resources page for other great messages.

Honesty & Integrity

Feb 21, 2017

Honesty and integrity aren’t feel good words in our world today, and certainly not a standard by which people aspire to live by anymore, or so it seems. Ephesians 6 tells us to arm us with the “belt of truth”, or in other words: live a life of honesty and integrity. While living out those…

Everything Is Going To Work Out

Feb 13, 2017

Someone needs to hear this promise from your Heavenly Father today. God is working on your behalf in ways you don’t even realize. Keep going, keep trusting, keep believing, keep your faith in Him. Your answer is on the way! “Help is coming, the answer is on the way, everything is going to work out!”…

#PrayForOpelousas

Feb 9, 2017

My heart has been so burdened for our city. Just over this past weekend, the news of drive-by shootings, accidental shootings, untimely deaths, etc. resulting in loss of life for young men & great pain for their families is absolutely heartbreaking. I feel God has given me a prayer directive/assignment for our city and I…

And My Soul Felt It’s Worth

Dec 19, 2016

  I love Christmas songs.  In particular, I LOVE the old Christmas hymns:  “Silent Night,” “Away in a Manger,” and “O Come Let Us Adore Him” just to name a few.  Whenever I hear those songs, my mind immediately goes back to my mama’s kitchen when I was a young girl.  She would be baking…

Fear Not

Dec 15, 2016

“for there is born to you this day…a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:10-11 (ESV) “Don’t be afraid” the angel proclaimed. Good news & great joy was coming to the earth. A SAVIOR who would save the people from their sins, their fear, their shortcomings and mistakes, and their depression, sadness, and anxiety….

Thanksgiving Week

Nov 21, 2016

A very wise woman once told me, “The greatest joy to a mother’s heart is to have all her children/family sitting around her table.” Such great truth! I want to challenge you this week of Thanksgiving: 1. Turn off the news 2. Put down your phones 3. Get off social media (after reading this post,…

Rewriting Your Season

Nov 14, 2016

The past several weeks, I’ve been thinking.  A lot.  Thinking about this new season of empty-nesting that my husband and I are now in.  We’ve actually been official empty nesters for a year and a half now, but I still don’t think we have found our groove.  Correction: my husband has TOTALLY found his groove……

What I know about God

Nov 7, 2016

While there are many verses in the Bible that I could call my “favorites”, if I were to say what my lifetime verse would be, what I’ve tried to live my life by, what I aspire each day to become, it would be this verse in Jeremiah 9: “Let not the wise man boast of…

The Test You Keep Taking

Oct 31, 2016

“For our righteous God tests the hearts and minds.”  Psalm 7:9 In school, Fridays are always test days. You knew the test was coming. You prepared for the test all week. For those of us who are rule followers, we were prepared for the test on Friday. For you rule-breakers, you crammed for the test…

What Gets Us In the Most Trouble

Oct 24, 2016

“I have resolved that my mouth will not sin.” Psalm 17:3 In a culture, in an election year, in a day and age where “free speech” is used as an excuse to say ANYTHING and EVERYTHING, this statement by David is like a slap in the face! It’s very easy to read that verse and…

It’s Time to Plant

May 12, 2016

Spring is my absolute favorite season! The cool weather, the crisp breeze blowing through the open windows of my house, the trees, grass, and bushes coming back to life after winter, with green foliage and flowers. I. LOVE. SPRING. Spring is also a time to prepare flower beds in my yard for planting. I weed…

Why is it so Hard to Sit Still?

Mar 10, 2016

I don’t know if there are words more brutal to a young child than to “sit still”. Everything within that child wants to run, play, dance, skip, and fidget…but to sit still? No way! As an adult, however, we long for permission to sit still. In the crazy, business of life, we would love for…

Just Do Better

Jan 4, 2015

I’ve never been one to make New Year’s resolutions because the majority of people who make them do not keep them past February.  I do believe in setting some goals and having a game plan.  I think the new year is a perfect time to reassess how your life is going and make the adjustments that…

The Power of Words

Nov 13, 2014

I am doing something this week I’ve never done before in my life. I’ve gone away…for a week…alone…to write. Never before has this happened. I’m in a season of my life where I can do this now.  But even more importantly, I feel that God has asked this of me.  Go away…by myself…and write words…lots…

What Now?

Aug 28, 2014

If you’ve read my past few blogs, you read about how I’m entering into a new season of life after twenty-three years of raising children.  I really do like and embrace change.  Change is exciting for me.  But this major of change of season has thrown me for a loop.  (should you desire more details,…

The Exit of a Very Long Season Part III

Aug 28, 2014

And now…….what I would have done differently after 23 years of parenting: I would have said “No” a lot more. …AND WITHOUT GUILT! Looking back, I said “yes” to a lot of things, not because I wanted to do them or even felt like God was asking me it of me.  But simply because I…

The Exit of a Very Long Season Part II

Aug 18, 2014

I’ve learned a lot over 23 years of parenting.  In some things, we’ve seen the mistakes other parents have made and decided not to make same mistakes. (I think God would call that “wisdom”) Other times, we did things wrong and vowed to learn from our mistakes and do it better the next time. (…

The Exit of a Very Long Season Part 1

Aug 18, 2014

Twenty-three years is a long time. It’s been half of my lifetime. It’s been a long season, but it’s been a great season. What season is that? PARENTING. Or parenting as I’ve always known it. My oldest daughter is about to turn 23, my middle daughter is almost 21 and my youngest son just entered his senior…

Are We Building the Wrong Things?

Aug 7, 2014

I’ve been discouraged. Really discouraged.  And yes, pastors and leaders get discouraged just like you do. My husband and I started Our Savior’s Church, Opelousas campus over four years ago.  We started in the home of a leader couple in our church.  We outgrew that living room and went to the gymnasium of a nearby…

Pick Me

Jul 22, 2014

Remember when you were a kid and you played outside ALL OF THE TIME? Remember when you were in school and you had P.E. and recess EVERY SINGLE DAY? Remember when, during those times of playing outside, you played a game called “Red Rover” and your friends, while holding hands to make a human chain,…

The Journey of Forgiveness

May 11, 2014

Forgiveness is one of the hardest things that God asks of us, but He never asks anything of us that He won’t equip and strengthen us to do. That goes for forgiveness too. Over the past 47 years of my life and 25 years in full-time ministry, there have been several lessons that God has…

Jesus, Orphans, and OHS

Apr 8, 2014

Let me start off by saying that if you haven’t read by blog from a couple of months ago, “100 dresses”, please go back and read it because that is the introduction to the story I’m about to tell. What do Jesus, orphans and Opelousas High School have in common?  Well, last week they were…

The 30,000 Foot View

Feb 25, 2014

My husband and I just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary a few weeks ago. That’s a big deal, right?!  Well, we think so! We were blessed with a few days on the beach (we’re taking our BIG celebration trip in a couple of months!). There’s really nothing on earth that soothes and restores my soul quite like time…

Let the little Children come…

Jan 28, 2014

As most of you who follow me on social media already know, I just recently returned from a trip to Haiti with Coreluv International. My husband, son and I spent 5 days in Gonavies, Haiti touring the orphanage that Coreluv oversees and the brand new orphanage they are building. This is my second trip to Haiti and…

100 Dresses

Dec 19, 2013

Last night, we made history in O-town!!  Never before have we had a gathering of women like we did for our very first O-town girl night!  The final count given to me was 986 in attendance…I think that included children and volunteers, but nonetheless, a HUGE turn-out!! The children in children’s church had to sit…

The Happiest Place on Earth

Nov 25, 2013

I am writing this blog from our hotel room in Disneyworld!! 🙂  All our children are home for Thanksgiving, so we decided to take advantage of our time together and celebrate at Disneyworld.   Disney is known as the “happiest place on earth” but today I saw otherwise. For those of you who read my blogs…

America’s Greatest Strength is also Her Greatest Weakness

Sep 11, 2013

My pastor often says “Your greatest strength can also be your greatest weakness.”  Some of my greatest strengths are leadership,  independence, determination,  strong-driven personality, etc.  But if I’m not careful….those same strengths can become my greatest weaknesses if not directed towards God and His purposes for my life. I think that statement is true concerning…

The Beauty of a Simple Life

Sep 3, 2013

For those of you who follow me on Twitter/Instagram or Facebook already know that I just returned from a two-week trip to Uganda, Africa. My second daughter, Hannah, is living in Uganda and working with Watoto church and as a mama, I just needed to go see her (haven’t seen her in 8 months) and…
