My Love Dare with God – Week 8

wk 8Week 8 – Dare days 25 – 27  Ready to dive a bit deeper???

This week we take a look at how Love

  •  Forgives – handing over our imprisoned pain to the only one who holds the key: Jesus
  • is Responsible – recognizing the role of pride, seeking God to show us where we’ve faltered, seeking forgiveness from Him, and gaining the strength to humble ourselves before others
  • Encourages – setting aside unrealistic expectations; ones we place on ourselves and others instead of looking to God first

My Love Dare with God – Week 7

wk 7Week 7 – Dare days 22 – 24  On the surface, some of the days may seem repetitive; but they aren’t – I believe each takes us one step closer to experiencing a deeper connection with God

This week we take a look at how Love

  • is Faithful – committing to show God we love Him even if we’re tired, sick, etc.
  • always Protects – taking a hard look at choices, priorities and balance
  • compared to  Lust – exercising our understanding of the difference between allowing God to fill voids versus turning to temporary pleasures


My Love Dare with God – Week 7

I’m still behind on video/audios, but I’m diligently working to catch up!  Please continue to be in prayer – it’s been a challenging few weeks health wise, but I’m getting there – thank you for your grace and patience!

wk 6Week 6 – Dare days 18 – 21… yes, this is another really good week!

My Love Dare with God – week 6



God Speaks

New to journaling? Welcome!!!!
I just love how God speaks to us on such a personal level!! I always try to encourage folks to journal – whether you write a few words, a picture, or any combination…it can inspire and encourage either yourself or others in ways you can’t possibly fathom!
I stumbled across this note from a binder…a BIG. BLANK. BINDER…
“Where to begin??? So much space to be filled!!!


I want to follow Your lead and not get so focused on the canvas that I lose sight of Your artistry. Amen”



My Love Dare with God – Week 5

wk 5Week 5 – Dare days 14 – 17… I realize I mention this each week, but this is a really good week!

This week we take a look at how Love

  • Takes Delight – we will explore how some areas can mean relearning some of the ways we express our love for God, which will open us to a truer love
  • is Honorable – how do we express a willingness and develop holy habits to sacrifice for God on a daily basis?
  • Intercedes – how do we become “wise farmers” and care for the soil of our lives so that seeds planted will reap a harvest in God’s timing; and
  • Promotes Intimacy – how do we love well by accepting ourselves and others as God accepts us

My Love Dare – week 5



My Love Dare with God – week 4

wk 4Can you believe it??? Week 4 already????  Hallelujah! You’re still here!!!! If you’re anything like me, it may be getting tough continuing to commit the time to fully immerse yourself in this study – one thing is for certain – you are not alone!

Hang in there – continue to strive for balance…don’t rush through to check this off your to-do list, but try not to drop it all together – a fine balance to say the least!  Remember, I’m the person who took 12 months to complete a 12 week study!!!! Keep asking God to stir your heart to know Him more intimately and trust in His timing.

This week we’ll be looking at:

  • how we express our love for God  through Cherishing our relationship with Him and others
  • avoiding the trap of insisting on having things “our” way and showing God and others we value Him/them by seeking their needs first
  • fighting fair – establishing and exercising me boundaries to build bridges instead of burning them

My prayer is consistently for you to thrive in this study and allowing God to grow your relationship with Him to new depths!
