The Poison of Comparing Yourself

Want to ruin your day? It’s easy and doesn’t cost a penny. Just indulge in the poison of comparison. Last night I parked my past-middle-aged orange Jeep outside the garage because my husband and I planned to assemble new bookcases and needed the room. I’d just plopped onto the front porch this morning after feeding the horses and dogs and

Why I Believe That YOU Are An Overcomer

It’s been said that 80% of success is just showing up. I second that. The most important characteristic of overcomers is persistence. The next is the hope that change is possible. I believe you have what it takes to be an overcomer. Here’s why.   Since you’re reading this, you’re probably an overcomer. I say that because you took action

Unexpected Fear – When God Changes Your Gifts

I don’t do nervous. Until recently, I believed that. Then unexpected fear came to visit. It was only a three-minute presentation, but there I was, concerned about what to wear because I didn’t want to walk to the microphone with my pants sweat-clinging to the back of my legs from warm chairs. In other words, I was nervous. Earlier in

Are You Easy to Obey?

There is a direct correlation between the ease of a request and the odds of obedience. Obedience is a gift. When a horse or person obeys you, which emotion is most likely to show up, gratification or gratitude?

Leadership – Horsemanship – Discipleship

I’ve been a leadership junkie for decades. Transitioning from corporate America, consulting, and motivational speaking to horse training wasn’t as difficult as it may seem at first blush, because the rules for success were the same. The move from the horse industry to ministry was a bit more complicated, but I’ve discovered that the method Jesus used to “train up”

Unanswered Prayer? Try Reframing Your Question

Does God answer your questions? I admit, I don’t ask very many questions, but when I do, I usually get an answer. There isn’t a preferred answer because my questions usually ask for guidance or information about weather. One morning I asked and didn’t get an answer. Nada. Nothing. In our ranching days, weather was a big deal. Fertilizer was

12 Stewardship Quotes – God, People, Critters, and Stuff

Ask any horse or dog to describe the greatest gift and you’ll get the same answer; a forever home and the love of someone special. But that’s not always possible. Trainers welcome horses into their barns and send them home. Foster children move in and move on. Lives, health, and financial circumstances change. Whether a horse, child, or automobile stays

The Difference Between Excuses and Explanations

Being excused removes culpability; offering an excuse isn’t the same thing. If my gale-force sneeze catches you directly between the eyes, you may excuse (forgive) me if I was totally caught off guard. I’m guilty as a cat caught with a parakeet feather between her teeth, but I’m far more embarrassed than you are annoyed. What if you’re the victim
