Friends

Friendship stands the test of time and weathers life’s numerous storms. It celebrates victories and cheers you on when things get tough.  Friends are not afraid to hold one another accountable to dreams and aspirations.  They are face-to-face, asking the hard questions, and bringing comfort when things get rough. Friends support, encourage and strengthen each other.

Unrestrained

I attended a women’s conference this weekend. Without doubt, it was among the best I’ve ever experienced. The speakers did not disappoint and the atmosphere, the vibe, was just what one would expect at a women’s conference: ELECTRIFYING! Volunteers were on their game. Dee was assigned to our group, and Dee was a master.  She met us as we parked our car and continued with us until the end.

Juror #28

Recently, I was selected as a juror in a civil trial.  It was an interesting experience.  First of all, I was shocked to have been chosen.  Having been selected to show up for jury duty several times in the past, I just knew that after I arrived, the clerk would walk out and thank everyone for coming, and then dismiss all of us because an agreement has been reached. That didn’t happen this time.  We filed in the courtroom row-by-row, mobile devices shut down and numbers assigned. Then the questions began.  I sat there thinking, they are not going to pick me for this case.  I just knew it!! I was wrong.

Don't Break the Ice

I remember playing countless games as I grew up. Hide & Seek, Dodge Ball, Foxes Cross the River and King of the Hill consumed a great deal of after school and weekend time with friends.  My friends and I also played a number of board games and completed puzzles to pass the time.

Serve Well

The beauty in leading comes fully alive in the art of serving well. I feel I am the leader I am today because early in the journey I learned to: follow well, honor my leaders, be fiercely loyal, and become an armor-bearer. Now that I am leading Shoreline Dallas, a new church with my husband Earl and our son Parker, it is evident God has blessed us with leaders who serve passionately. I’m so grateful for the serving seeds we planted long before leading our own congregation.

Last One Standing

Do you remember playing team games as a child?  Two leaders are chosen, and one by one, each leader picks their team members. As the pool becomes smaller, those waiting to hear their name called out, silently scream, ‘pick me! I don’t want to be the last one standing!’
