17 Lessons I Learned From Reading The Alchemist (Part 1)

17 Lessons I Learned From Reading The Alchemist (Part 1)

In Faith

A little while ago I reread the book, “The Alchemist”, which is about a shepherd boy named Santiago who loved his calling to be a shepherd. He was going through life doing what he loved and he thought he knew what he wanted. However, one day he met a king who told him something that totally changed his thinking and what he thought about his purpose, and it ultimately changed the course of his life. What he learned allowed him to truly discover and live out his purpose.   I knew I loved the book, but I forgot why I…

Why The Small Things Matter + How to Handle Them

In Faith

I was participating in a mastermind group one day and my mentor shared a story about how we need to be cognizant over the small things in our lives because they can derail us. She shared two examples to illustrate her point. The difference between a motorcycle that is upright and traveling safely is a pebble, because over a certain rate of speed a small thing like a pebble hit the wrong way can result in a motorcycle accident.

7 Lessons I Learned As A Single Mother (Part 2)

In Faith

Do you feel like something is blocking your relationship with God? Do you look at God’s promises to believers and then wonder where He is in your life? I think that these are common questions that arise during our Christian journey. One of the things that I struggled with was knowing the Word of God, but then struggling to believe that it applied to me.   I mentioned last week in Part 1, that God has been taking me through a period of introspection and during this time I had been focused on developing a deeper relationship with God. Last…

7 Lessons I Learned As A Single Mother (Part 1)

In Faith

Lately, I feel like God has been taking me through a period of introspection, and I’ve had so many thoughts running through my mind. It’s been a time of searching, finding peace, learning from various experiences throughout my life, and seeking God to be able to hear His voice so He can be my guidance going forward. As much as I talk about God being my guide, it is so hard to take my hands off of the wheel and truly give things over to Jesus. It’s also hard to not define myself by past mistakes and really see the…
