Riding Waves Book

Riding Waves is a book about learning to navigate the joys and trials of growing up, falling in love and going to college. When Harper's relationship with Dan starts taking her down a path she doesn't like, she will have to make some hard choices. Can Harper ride the waves of life or will they take her under?

Being lost

   Don't we assume that a homeless person or even a very poor person must be spiritually lost to be living this way? Also don't we think that a person with success and money must be walking the righteous path with God and be in His favor to receive such a life? That is not my experience in my own life though. There have been times of abundance in my life, yet I was spiritually lost and floundering for any purpose and meaning. Now I am praying daily and looking to God, yet struggling to pay my bills and to have meaning and direction in my life. One can be found and still struggle. One can be lost yet still appear to have earthly success.

Walk by faith

   What does it mean to walk by faith? Do I read the bible daily? How do I follow Christ? Walking by faith is an individual journey since no one else has the same experiences and circumstances as you do. Each of our journey's though, should lead us to trust in the goodness of God; of a life bigger than we can imagine for ourselves.

How will you be remembered?

"When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced; live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice."
-White Elk
  How will you be remembered? What will you leave the world?

Everything changes in life

Although we can't change the things that we did in the past, we have the power to change the future. Too many people get stuck on the past, feeling like they are defined by it. I have come to understand that one true fact about life is that everything changes.

Your heart is revealed in your words

"What is in your heart, will be revealed in your words," Bryan Jones, a Pastor at Willow Creek Church, said in a message he gave at Midweek.He spoke about the impact our words have on other people either in a positive or a negative way. In the bible Jesus says that what you say will reflect what is in your heart. You can't say mean things about or to others and have goodness in your heart. Have goodness so you speak goodness.
