Journey to Christian Wellness

Faith Bible Image


“… apart from God we can do nothing.”  

We believe in the tenet that permanent, positive change must be devoted to God, directed by God, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

If you agree, don’t take this journey alone! Our Bible studies, devotions, classes, and workshops grow intimacy with God and help equip us to live in His will. More…

Take Your Time Do It Right

When anxious for change or pressed for a decision, how do you respond? Proverbs 19:2 reminds us that “haste makes waste” (MSG version) – and – I must admit my response in hurried times doesn’t always alight with this truth. What about you?  Have you ever: Rushed into a relationship? In the moment made a significant purchase without counting the costs? Moved quickly to get out of a hot situation and went from the frying pan into the fire? Wisdom and value can be found when we resist the rush, research, take our time and do things right. Let’s talk about it.  Click here or the image below to see this week’s update on our Louisiana flood restoration and my recent Proverbs 19:2 reminder. Also it is not good for a person to be without knowledge, And he who hurries with his feet [acting impulsively and proceeding without caution or analyzing the consequences] sins (misses the mark).   Proverbs 19:2 AMP The video was recorded yesterday. Today in Church School our Superintendent Deacon Reed taught a similar message.  A key verse from the lesson:  but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;     they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary;     they shall walk and not faint.      Isaiah 40:31 ESV And then our Pastor preached it. I love when the Lord keeps needed messages before me. I’m slow on the uptake and repetition helps me hear and heed. How about you? Does the call to resist the rush resonate with you? In what area do you need to apply this truth?  ... read more

A look at what lies beneath

The Louisiana flood caused the removal of furnishings, fixtures, and finishings – allowing us to see the foundation and structure of our home. The look at what lies beneath is telling. In some ways, the flood brings a deep look at people (others and ourselves). Equally telling… Let’s talk about it. Click here or image below for more. The video mentions self-care and reaching out for help when you process trauma.  A wonderful resource is coming soon. Stay tuned for more information on Dealing with Trauma: The Flood of 2016. This workshop created and presented by Patsy Johnson, BACS-LCSW, CPM was designed to support individuals after the Flood of 2016. This workshop stresses the importance of making one’s emotional well-being a priority. It also defines stress and trauma and presents ways to manage stress from spiritual and practical perspectives. Note: This course is not designed to replace the advice of healthcare professionals.   I’ve seen the content. It is powerful, and I believe this session will be a blessing to those dealing with or supporting people through trauma of any kind. If you are local and available, I hope to see you there. Date/time/location details will be announced as soon as they are finalized. Check back here and make sure you are connected with me via your favorite social media channel (links below) for more information on this session and other helpful faith and fitness resources.

Louisiana Flood Learnings – Time away is important

Day 12 A quick 33-hour trip to South Bend, Indiana via Chicago was a needed departure from my new (temporary post flood) normal.  A few happy highlights: First time eating at Flat Top Grill. That big bountiful bowl of spicy sweet veggies brought tears to my eyes. Firs time vising the beautiful campuses of St Mary and Notre Dame. My first author television interview. The folks at The Harvest Show do good work for God’s kingdom. Click here to watch the interview. An impromptu visit with my sister, soror, friend Regina.We haven’t seen each other in a quarter century but it seemed like yesterday. My first successful self-application of false eyelashes. They were straight and didn’t fall off.  (Did you peep those lashes!) Last and most important: birthday lunch with my 86-year-old mother. It included precious, precious time talking, cracking, shelling and watching her enjoy king crab legs, and about 147 kisses and hugs. This too short visit with her is one I doubt I’ll ever forget. For all of this I give God... read more

Going For Excellence

I adore the Olympics. The display of excellence is inspiring. The level of athletic excellence at the Olympics is extremely rare. This kind of greatness is to be admired as it does not come easily. We all may not be athletes, but every believer has the potential and enabling to be excellent in their area of purpose. Are we willing to do what it takes to be great?  More in video below…  ... read more

New Beginnings

Today is 8/8/16 That’s a lot of 8s. In the Bible, the number eight is connected to new beginnings, resurrection, renewal, commencement. On this day of 8s I ask: what new choice, new action is God urging you to make? (Click image for more via a short video.)   Get ready and go where the Lord leads.  ... read more

With a heavy heart… #AltonSterling #‎PhilandroCastile‬

Following is transcript of my weekly Facebook video post. (Click here to view.) I use a social media calendar, and on the schedule for today’s Friday’s Facebook Live broadcast was a talk about persistence or ‘easy ways to add whole grains in your meals’. My heart is so heavy, I just can’t bring myself to talk habits or the benefits of quinoa. I’m greatly grieved by the horrific murder of Mr. Stirling here in Baton Rouge, (that happened literally walking distance from the church where we worship), and the killing of Mr. Castile. Killings that were broadcasted on Facebook. We witnessed life leaving these men’s bodies on Facebook. This shook me in ways I can’t begin to explain. Then to wake up this morning and hear about the ambush of police officers working a peaceful protest in Dallas. Y’all, we need help. The dark forces of chaos, and deception, and denial, and division, and fear… these demonic forces are wreaking havoc. We see it in the biases of media and the bickering on social media. We see where folks have been deceived to take righteous indignation and turn it into an action that shows they believe the proper repayment for evil is evil. We even see it in those who in the midst of all of this are silent and still. Not because they are waiting or listening for the Lord to direct them, but because they have a head in the sand reaction. “It will be better by-and-by” or “this is just how things are and there’s nothing that can be done”. Evil is having a field day. And... read more
