Instead of a houseful of kids and their little ones running around laughing, crying, playing with toys and sneaking treats, this year my husband, Jim, and I will be home alone for Christmas.  Perhaps this is something familiar to you, for one reason or another? My automatic reaction is to feel sad and find myself […]

It’s very easy to let our lives drift off course. It rarely happens overnight. Slowly but surely we wake up one day and we are in a dry dark desert. We chose a detour and before we knew it, we were way off the lighted path. Mistakes were made. Life happened. We bought things we […]

It’s been an awesome day. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is back, my favorite yogurt was in stock at Trader Joe’s, and I found a great parking space at Costco. I actually liked how my rear end looked in my jeans, I finally found a mascara that doesn’t smear, and I had a 45 minute nap. […]

Birthed in Freedom I was raised in the halls of power and the cradle of freedom in Washington, DC because my father, Harry Dent, Sr., served a senator and three presidents. Patriotism oozed through my veins. The fight for freedom motivated every beat of my father’s heart—especially against Communism. America gave us the freedom to […]

Most of us need a miracle. Perhaps in our marriage, finances, relationships, business venture, job search, addictions, friendships, family, or a wayward child. Maybe we got a diagnosis we never saw coming, or need to break free from whatever is keeping us down and out when we desperately want to be up and about. Does […]

As a medical doctor, when I tell patients to pray scriptures over themselves some look at me like I’m crazy, but let me tell you I KNOW prayer works. Here’s an example of a prayer I gave someone to pray over their shoulder injury. Feel free to pray it over yourself and adjust to your […]

I drove home from the party without the radio on. I was enjoying the silence and lost in my thoughts of mundane things; like what I needed from the grocery store, my “to-do” list for the following day, and exactly how many calories were in the bacon-wrapped date I had eaten earlier. Times seven. I […]

I pressed in for 13 years before I received God’s healing and victory from Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and Depression. I tried desperately to rest in God until He answered me. It became my top priority to receive victory over this. 

It does not mean that I didn’t ask, “Why God?” or “When God?” or “What’s this […]

a·bun·dance: A very large quantity of something. I’m not the most gifted person on the planet—but I do have a “very particular set of skills” and God-given talents that I do pretty darn well. We all do. We all have talents, abilities, and gifts from God that we do pretty well. And along those lines […]

“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2) I sat at my desk and rubbed my temples, my heart heavy with burdens. Not mine, but those around me. So many with devastating diagnosis, loss, disappointment, despair and troubles. Carrying their burdens is what God desires. Pray […]

God is good all the time, and all the time God is good. Angela Alexander truly believes this statement even on her darkest day! On April 1, 2000 while Angela was in Japan on military duty, her husband and four children were involved in a fatal car crash. The Alexander’s car fell twenty-five feet off […]

I had a lot of meltdowns during my mommy years—and they left me feeling wretched. I didn’t want to be cranky, critical, and short-tempered but too often, I was. And what did I do? I hid from God. I told myself that I was a failure as a Christian, a failure as a mother, and […]

God is in control of the details! I’ve “known” that and even spoken of it often from the platform. But too easily in my day-to-day life I forget that in my current monumental challenges that “God has got this”. Much of America experienced major storms in the past few weeks, including my city in Texas. […]

God doesn’t promise a day without problems, or moments without trials, but aligned with Him, He promises a satisfied soul. On one very hot summer day, my keyboard began to feel sticky. The air conditioner decided to stop working. And, in the Florida summer heat, my energy was melting into drops of worry. What if […]
