A Grace-Based Approach To Setting Boundaries In Relationships

Sometimes I think people get the wrong idea that if they are living under grace then that means they need to let others mistreat them or even abuse them. Let me be clear; Jesus, the very person of grace, does not want you to be mistreated or abused. In fact, Matthew, Mark, Luke & John […]

Growing In Grace…Every Day

I’ve been in one of the most exciting seasons of my life this past month, spiritually speaking. This is really starting to sink in for me which proves that we are all always growing in grace. I wrote this out recently and have now attached scripture references to it for you because I like you! […]

The Absurdity of Pharisaism

I left the house at 11:30pm last night in search of sugar. I came home with everything in that picture. All the grocery stores were closed so I stopped in at the local gas station – one of those big one-stop-shop gas stations. I looked around for quite a while picking out my goodies and […]

The Simple Life

Are you enjoying your life? I believe it’s God’s will for His children to enjoy life! Something I’ve noticed in the past couple of years is that many peoples’ lives are very dramatic. Complicated would be another word for it. Hey, I’m not judging anyone because my own life gets too dramatic and too complicated […]

Is Jesus The Tithe?

I pray you are super blessed by this wonderful teaching by Pastor Greg Riether of Healing Grace Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I’m convinced Jesus wants His Bride (The Church) to live in freedom in this area! I have also created some artwork quotes from this message that you can save to your camera roll and […]

You Have Authority In The Name Of Jesus

This past Sunday we watched The Chronicles of Narnia; The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe at a youth event at our church. What a great movie! Here’s what I learned. Colossians 1:11-23  11 We also pray that you will be strengthened with all His glorious power so you will have all the endurance and […]

Just Say “Here I Am, Lord…Send Me!”

“Here I Am, Lord…Send Me.” What a great thing to tell Jesus! I say it all the time! There are so many ways God can send you into other people’s lives, working in and through you to help them. That’s why I often talk about how important it is that we don’t limit God or […]

Relax – It. Is. All. About. Jesus.

Do you know what one of the coolest things about the grace-life is? It’s that you come to realize it’s not about you. You suddenly see it as clear as day – “Oh my goodness, This Is All About Jesus!” And when you see it, glorious results follow. As you may know, the Branson Women […]

The Holy Spirit is Trying to Save You From Living a Complicated Life!

Believe me when I say “Complicated” used to be my middle name. Sandra Complicated McCollom. I spent the first 34 years of my Christian life over-riding the promptings of the Holy Spirit. This made for one frustrated existence. Because of the way I used to live, I can’t even express how much I enjoy the […]
