Use the gate opener!

My parents have given me a gate opener to their house. They have this electric gate outside their home that cannot be pushed open with your bare hands– you have to use the gate opener to get in! Believe me, I’ve tried! There have been times I didn’t have the gate opener with me and […]

A New Look for a New You!

Have you ever noticed how you “look” when you’re sick? Look at people in the doctor’s office sometime. Not too good. What about when you call in sick and stay home for the day? You hope nobody shows up at your house unexpectedly. No make up. Your hair isn’t washed. You’re wearing old sweat pants, […]

Paris Ministry Update

I love being here! I love this city! I love these people! This has been such a great ministry trip. The meetings have been amazing! Hundreds of people have come to the altar ready to be free and pursue God’s plan for their life. I have to say a big thank you to all of […]

To Paris with Love!

The time has come for me to go to the mission field! Everyone laughs when I say that God has called me to France….Paris, France! And yes, it sounds funny! And yes, I happen to love shopping, wearing berets and having a croissant or 2! But the truth is that France desperately needs the love […]

If today were your last day to live . . .

. . . how would you spend it? Would you quickly change your current “to do list” for today? Would you get out of that bad mood perhaps you woke up with? Would you call that friend and apologize to them? Would you kiss your spouse before they leave the house today? Would you “pencil […]

You’ve come too far to turn back now!

Every day that you wake up Satan is looking for a way to get you to quit!  Quit believing God. Quit using your faith. Quit dreaming. Quit giving. Quit hoping things will change. He flat out wants you to quit! Do you know of any successful people who gave up?  Do you know anyone who […]

Shake it off and climb up higher!

Did you know that God can use the very things that you are most embarrassed about, most ashamed of and most hestitant to talk about — to bring healing and hope to someone else?  It seems that’s exactly what He’s doing with my life.  I find myself sharing more and more about my mistakes from […]

What gets you up in the morning?

I was just thinking about how easy it is to let our passion die. Every day that we wake up, we have a choice to either dread the day or look forward to something. I’ve had times where it felt like I was just in a rut. I would get up every day, go for […]

Clean up and clean out!

My mom is such a perfectionist about having her house clean, organized and everything in its place! I mean everything!  Her house is home-y but almost “museum-like”…. got it?  If she calls me out of the blue and says, “Terri, I’m on my way over. I’ll be at your house in 15 minutes!”  Oh dear […]

“Cheer Mom”

Once a cheerleader, always a cheerleader, right? I used to love cheering at High School football games, basketball games, volleyball games, you name it! I just loved cheerleading. Well, I only thought those days were over . . . now my daughter is in competitive cheerleading. And I love it! I am such a “cheer […]
