I Declare…

ONE touch from The LORD can CHANGE everything… 
Don’t give up!

Don’t give up on your dreams…

BELIEVE and DECLARE with me that you are not just going to survive life anymore, but you are going to THRIVE! 


This is so true for Daniel and I, especially as we approach our 2 year mark of stepping out of the boat–our comfort zone! God has seen us through SO much in the past 2 years and we stand so much stronger in Him! We both can attest to “He never leaves you and never forsakes you.” There is always a Bigger Plan–trust Him!

Speak Life…

Don’t be trapped by what comes out of your mouth! Choose to speak “Life” “Goodness” over yourself! #loveyourself❤️

Healthy & Awesome Chicken Breast Skewers Recipe

Makes 4 servings

Per serving

1 Leaner protein 3 condiments 1 fat

1. 36oz raw chicken breasts, boneless and skinless

2. ¼ cup lemon or lime juice

3. 4 tsp olive oil

4. Seasonings:

1. 2 cloves garlic, crushed

2. ¼ tsp Salt

3. ¼ tsp Black

¼ tsp Red Pepper

4. 2 tsp cumin seed or 1 tsp ground cumin

Mix the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and all the spices together in a bowl

Put the cut chicken breast in your awesome marinade, cover with lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.

If you want to prevent the skewers from burning, soak them in water for at least 40 minutes beforehand. Then, lay out everything you need: grill-pan set-up, skewers, some torn paper towels for surprise mess-ups. And last before you begin, preheat the gas grill or oven broiler to HI

Cooking at high heat turns it crispy and locks the juices inside. This also shortens cooking time significantly, so keep a close eye to avoid turning your delicious dinner to charcoal. We recommend broiling, grilling or very high heat baking.

Broil on HI for a few minutes per side, checking frequently. As each side develops a crisp, you will turn the meat slightly. Basically, you are using your oven broiler as you would a barbecue. This shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes total.

“I Will Be With You”

Whatever you may be going through today, the Lord promises to never leave you nor forsake you! He is closer than your own brothe/sister, just trust in Him and He will direct your very path! Be encouraged today as you head into a new week! 

A New Adventure Ahead

Sharing some exciting news as we step into a brand new adventure with our health! 

Let’s connect–leave me a comment! 

It Is Finished…(Happy Good Friday)

The cross — Jesus laying down His life for us all simply because He loves us so much! 

Because of that love– there is also healing! “By His wounds we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)

Whatever you may need healing from, big or small…it is  finished! 

Happy Good Friday–Sunday is coming!

Only Believe…

It’s allergy season—itchy eyes, runny noses, walking in a fog most of the day gets pretty tiresome and frustrating to so many of us during a season that is intended to bring newness of life.

I wanted to share Alyssa’s personal testimony of the Lord healing her from allergies at the age of 4. I know most people may think that allergies are too small of a thing to even “bother” the Lord with but He loves us so much and does want us to have a life filled with abundance. Praying this encourages your heart! 

Alyssa would be up nightly coughing and coughing and coughing.  Her eyes were so puffy and she was miserable. It got so bad she didn’t want to play outside, I didn’t want her to play outside. She would get home from school and I would wash her hair and try to give her some relief from the pollen. Anything to help her.

Then the experiment started. Which allergy medication was going to help her and let’s try two or three different ones and it won’t interact was what I was told. The doctors tried to diagnose her with reactive airways which would eventually lead to asthma. She was now on an inhaler every four hours, eye drops, nose drops, daytime and nighttime medicine, when we counted all the prescriptions it was 11! She was only 4! I started the regimen in all hopes for some relief and some much needed sleep! By the second week, my baby girl who loved school and loved life started to cry uncontrollably and didn’t want to attend school.  She would kick and scream as I would now have to literally drag her out of the car;  she started having nightmares; during the day randomly she had hallucinations; anxiety filled her mind. Alyssa started to slip into a depressive state right before our eyes and we felt helpless. Her teachers were asking what’s wrong; Her family didn’t recognize her; Her parents had no answers!

One day after I dropped Alyssa off to school, I remember calling Dan at work and bursting into tears out of complete exhaustion. I mean it’s just allergies! Why is it this difficult? Dan had already felt in his heart to do some research on the many medications she was taking and what do we find out that morning but so many moms and dads complaining of the interactions and most of them had the same  exact symptoms as Alyssa was now experiencing. So what do you do? Do you keep giving the medicines that are supposedly helping one thing but now created several different issues? Which side effect was I willing to trade? 

At a lost, I went to her room with my bible in hand and the story of Abraham and Isaac came to my mind.  (Genesis 22:1-20). This story is about a father choosing to be obedient to the Lord and going through the steps of sacrificing his one and only son. See, God obviously didn’t let Abraham go through with it but sometimes as parents we hold on so much to our blessing that we forget the blesser has our back! That story ministered to me deeply. I cried and said, “Lord–you love her more, so take care of it.” At that moment I knew what I had to do and that was to have faith and believe that she was already healed. I must’ve prayed forever but when I got up I felt peace and certain of our next step. I called Dan and said I was throwing away all the medicine! (Now don’t get me wrong we aren’t against medicines by any means–God can use anything but in this case it was not for Alyssa’s good) It was the craziest thing throwing all 11 items away. I just knew if it was in the house I would be tempted. 

I wish I could say by the snap of my fingers she was healed but everytime a symptom came up we prayed and kept believing in her miracle. Until one night it was the worse! She would not sleep and she was coughing over and over and there I am in the darkness of night rubbing her back and patting her to sleep.  Every negative thought ran through my head: “what was I thinking; what did I do; how will she ever sleep; maybe I should give her some nighttime medicine and see if it will help!” Alyssa turned to me and in the midst of a cough said gently, “mommy Jesus said don’t worry just give me some water, I don’t need any medicine.”  I still get goose bumps recalling this night–let me tell you my mouth dropped and tears streaming down my face–Alyssa had no idea what was racing through my mind, she didn’t  know the battle and back and forth I was having with myself! I gave her a drink of water and she  drifted off soundly to sleep! I was left thanking God for loving her more than I ever could. 

Alyssa is now 10 years old! She does not have any symptoms of allergies; she does not have asthma, she plays outside whenever she wants, as a matter of fact she’s a runner! God is good! 

As we all head into celebrating Easter,  I encourage you to think on this verse and only believe–He loves us So much! 

Isaiah 53:5 But He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our sins; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by His wounds we are healed.

Road Trippin… (Miami to Key West) 

What a day we had! Last night, we spent the night in Miami (our half way point) and we started out our day today looking forward to blue skies and turquoise waters! 

Our first stop was at Robbie’s in Islamodora Key, where we could feed the Tarpon fish. This little stop had everything from souvenir shopping, restaurants, ice cream shops and a place to just kick back and relax. 

After feeding the tarpons and dodging some massive pelicans who are on the prowl for the fish just as well, we grabbed some ice cream and my all-time favorite snow cones topped with sweetened condensed milk–Yum!

Back to the car after our super fun stop…

We made it! Dan and I first came to Key West 16 years ago on our 1 year anniversary and we have been back a few times with the kids as well but this time as they are older we are ready to do what we love doing as a family: explore! 

We had to go see the southern most point and grab a coconut ofcourse! 

           (This was Alaina’s favorite)

Next stop Mallory Square to watch the sunset! Everyday in Key West there is a sunset celebration where there are entertainers, live music and different souvenir stands as everyone countdowns the moments to the sunset. 

                         (Mile Marker O)

This guy was entertaining when Dan and I first went 16 years ago!!!

       I could NOT do this sunset justice!

Then THIS happened!!! There was no waking her so we ate dinner at one of our more memorable restaurants we ate 16 years ago! Yes folks we had a moment while the other two colored and this one slept–the food never tasted more glorious! 

A fun day/night doing all family-friendly activities even in the Keys

                     See you next time! 

Simply Worship…

Even life’s greatest complexities can be undone, when we simply choose to worship God right where we are!#mondayworshippulse
