Some women wear joy like a jacket. They effortlessly smile, wave, and embrace others with a genuine sense of happiness. I admired people like that from afar but never thought I could be one of them.

more about me
I have served in ministry for the past decade, as well as being involved in my local community. My zeal for life, and contagious laughter light up a room. Chart a Course is my maiden voyage as an author. I hope readers would have the courage to follow their God-given calling into the unknown.
My brother and sister-in-law have adopted this amazing encouraging phrase for their daughter who is two. When she gets hurt by falling over or running into something, they immediately tell her to say, “I’m tough.” After she says it through her tears they tell her to say “I’m super tough.” Humor is an effective tool to diffuse tense situations and build connections to our children. How can we incorporate humor to parent well?
If you are a Mom you have experienced a sleepless night. Guaranteed. Whether sleeplessness was from waking to care for a sick child, or worried for a teenager who missed curfew you’ve been there and done that. What did you do to overcome the anxiety and knock-on physical depletion from an unwanted all-nighter? I used to drink copious amounts of coffee. Then I tried a regimented night-time routine for everyone in the house. (That lasted for about a week) Lastly, I got some really powerful advice from a friend and a pastor. My cure for sleeplessness was going to battle in prayer.
Dating is supposed to be fun. While Christians may not do everything that their secular counterparts do, that doesn’t mean we cannot enjoy life. I hope this list gives you some great ideas to explore new things, have meaningful conversations with your partner, and strengthen your love for one another. If you are married don’t stop dating! It is one of the single greatest contributing factors to marriage satisfaction.
My favorite quote by Jessica Carey, "Skepticism parades itself as wisdom to keep us stuck in a place of fear."
"Jessica escorts the reader through a sea-worthy adventure of falling in love over and over with God. Brutally honest walk with God as a reminder that He does indeed fill the holes of the heart and quiets the spirit."
"Having a destination to aim for gives each of us purpose and meaning; and when we allow God to determine our course, He will bring the resources and crew we need exactly when we need them. Jessica's book Chart A Course beautifully navigates the journey of discovering where you are going, how to get there, who to bring along and most importantly why."
