Book Review-Embracing Your Second Calling

      I was sent a book to review for a while back and it took me awhile to get through the book.  It took me a little while to admit I might fit in the category of this book.  It is a book by Dale Hansen Bourke about the second half of your life and your calling for it.  I have known since my first child was born almost 24 years ago that my calling was to care for my children, home and hubby.  I worked with the Children's ministries at church also.  Children was my life at home and for God.  Then I looked around for a second and my children were all grown or almost there.  I wasn't quite sure where I was or what my calling from God was anymore.
     This book is a good guide to help you that the next part of your life is still valuable and what you and God see as your calling to serve Him.  I recommend this book for anyone who finds themselves at that point in their life where they need to slow down and maybe even stop, take stock and see where they are and where they are going in their service to God. 
     Thanks Booksneeze for the chance to review this book.  I look forward to a long time commitment with your company.  For anyone interested in reading a book and reviewing it on your blog then go to and sign up.

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.

Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.

     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
