I hope that my Breaking Bread family is having a super awesome day and that you’re walking around with a smile on your face even if your life reflects what should be a frown. Trust and believe me when I say that the past six months have felt like hell on Earth for me, but I know that I can’t waste too many days with a frown on my face, because that would mean that God was losing the battle and wasn’t capable of better. It would also mean that I’m not grateful for the daily blessings that He bestows upon me knowing that I don’t deserve them and haven’t earned them—it’s just His loving grace!
I took a couple of weeks to clear my mind, deal with some personal issues, pray, reflect, and listen. Who was I listening to? God. I won’t lie, the enemy sure did have my ear more times than I care to admit. But as always, our Father-Mother always prevails.
So I’m back in the saddle. A post will be coming your way momentarily. I’m also pleased to say that I have an update…
This weekend I dedicated time to work on my book. I hit a wall awhile back because I couldn’t think and see clearly with all of the things that were taking place in my life at the exact same time. But this weekend left me with a great opportunity to sit down and let my heart guide me to where I need to be, and where you the reader would like to see me go with my writing. This is a scary process. Blogging is easy. Writing a book that you think people will want to read and share, and pay for—now that’s a mountain to climb. I’ve been encouraged to keep pressing forward and to remember the nostalgic phrase, “if you build it they will come“. I have to believe that when I do this people will want to read it and share it with others. I can’t keep struggling with God and trying to tell Him how to use me. I have to let go of the steering wheel and let Him steer and be the Captain.
I will keep you updated on my progress. If there is something that you would like to experience from this or any of my future books (yes, I’m speaking that into existence), please don’t hesitate to contact me and share your ideas and requests. Maybe just maybe I can make it happen. Anything is possible when you let God do the steering!
Love your sister in Christ,

Happy Saturday Family!
Well here we are. The moment has finally arrived. It’s time for me to share my big Breaking Bread announcement. I’m nervous but I’m ready. I will stop teasing you and start showing you how God will be using me. So let’s do this!
I’m finally taking the big leap!
For more than 12 years people have asked me to write books, to tell my story, to share my gifts with the world. I’ve started and stopped numerous times. For over 8 years, I’ve had Breaking Bread readers ask me, “when are you going to write a Breaking Bread book?” Well family, I can say that the time is now!
I started drafting the book in August. The enemy jumped into hyper mode trying to tell me to keep it small, don’t go big and bold. I’ve chosen to listen to God, Who told me to go big, bold, and bring 100 percent in honor of Him. So that’s what I’m doing.
I’m working with a team to outline the marketing and rollout strategy, publisher requirements, and how to thank everyone who has supported me and the Breaking Bread blog since 2009.
I can’t share all of the details now. I can say that I have a title for this particular book. I finalized that this week (after changing it twice). This book is based on my work through the Breaking Bread blog. There will be both an e-book and a soft-bound print version. Let me stop there before I reveal too much. *Smile*
I’m trusting God. I’m walking confidently wherever He guides me. I’m ready for Him to use me at this new level. I will not let anyone or anything get in the way of this project and God’s plan. I’ve put the enemy on notice. It better back down or get smacked down! This is God’s domain!
So please stay tuned for details in the near future. If you have ideas, suggestions, or requests for the new book and future books, please email them to me at: email@example.com
Thanks family. I’m excited. No more hiding in fear, doing just enough. Next year is the year to stand up and be all that God has called us to be. 2017 is the year I declare, “No fear! Just winning!”
I love you all!
Your sister in Christ,
Good morning/afternoon Breaking Bread Family!
My big announcement I posted a teaser about a few weeks ago, is finally being shared today at 12:30pm EST, so check your inboxes and notifications.
I’m ending 2016 strong and stepping in 2017 determined. I hope that you will join me along this journey!
Happy Wednesday Breaking Bread Family!
So I’ve made some changes to the Breaking Bread site. There’s even a snazzy warm logo. I’ve added some things and got rid of some other things. I’m clearing the way for what God has in store. I’m getting the baskets ready for the fish and loaves of bread that I prayed for. I’m starting now rather than waiting for later.
We must be prepared for God’s provisions when we ask for them. What’s the purpose of asking for a blessing if you aren’t ready for it?
I could’ve waited until January 1st to come with the new look, to declutter things–but then I would be playing catch up. I’m learning to do it when God places it on my heart to do it, not when it’s convenient or comfortable. Just stop and do it. So I did. A new look. A new feel. A new vision. A new page being turned.
Please stop by and check it out. This is a teaser for the big announcement that I have planned in the upcoming days.
Yep, you read that correctly. This isn’t the big announcement. It’s coming and I’m excited.
God has said I’m ready. God has shown me that I’m ready. I won’t let fear stand in my way. I won’t let other people stand in my way. I won’t be discouraged. I’m stepping out knowing that God has my footing because He directs my steps. That’s a Proverbs 16:9 reference that we really should embed within ourselves.
Enjoy the site and enjoy today’s Breaking Bread message that is scheduled to post later today. We have some praying and reflecting that we need to do today!
I love you all!!!
Your sister in Christ,
Hello Breaking Bread Family!
I just wanted you to know that I have a BIG announcement to share in the upcoming days. God has touched my heart to share publicly, and at the time He sees fit. So I will be obedient, which I’m oftentimes not—but I most definitely will this time [*smile*]
Hey, I’m in training, being molded, and extremely flawed. He knows this. Hopefully you can simply laugh and accept this and me too.
I love you all!
Your sister in Christ,
