I want to briefly put the Deliberate Series on pause to slip in a few updates.
Freedom to Run
This last week I had the honor of sharing my story at Jennifer Dukes Lee’s place. I talked about how the lies of the enemy hold us captive. “The lies come relentlessly as an assignment of the enemy to thwart you from fulfilling your purpose, because your purpose is in opposition the devil’s plans. Your purpose is to shine bright the Light in his world of darkness. The devil hates light and you illuminated as the light of the earth. “For you formerly were darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of the Light…” (Ephesians 5:8)
Jesus is calling you to run free. But you cannot run your race all tied up. Truth will cut you loose. Continue reading the post here…
Last month I had the opportunity to share my story of redemption on a podcast produced by my friend Jacque Watkins. I shared about my broken relationship with my father, my teenage pregnancy, the option of abortion, and how God redeemed. Click here to listen on iTunes. Click here for all Mud Stories Podcasts.
My friend, Kris Camealy, has opened the doors to a beautiful new community called Grace Table, and I get join a beautiful company of writers around the table.
“GraceTable is a place for open table conversations about food and faith designed to inspire and equip people to pursue brave hospitality.”
I would like to invite you to be a part. Click here for Grace Table.
Another beautiful new community that I am blessed to be a part of is Deeper Waters Ministry. My friend Denise J. Hughes began this ministry with a heart and mission “to lead women into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through spiritual formation.”

Hope for the Nations: Tomorrow I will share my Hope for the Nations posts. Each month I invite you to pray for, bring awareness, and even support a group of people I am advocating for. This month we are praying for the persecuted Christians around the world, with a focus on Iraq.
Featured Book: Each month I write about a book I am reading that has been impactful or life changing. Monday I will be sharing that book with you.
Deliberate Posts: The series continues. There was a lag in my posts because the ones I had prepared for you seemed out of order. I sensed the Lord drawing me back to speak about growth, and how important our personal growth, cultivation of our lives is important. I have so much to tell you.
YouTube Videos: Everyday I am becoming more and more excited about making videos for you. I am working on a few more. Be on the look out, or subscribe here. The upcoming ones can stand alone and also correlate with the Deliberate Series. More than anything, I hope they help you.
Whew! I believe that is all for now. Thank you. Just thank you for following along. My way is the not the Way. More than anything, I want my life to point you to the Way.
