It was so much fun to be a guest on the Alive in Christ Radio Network. I was super nervous, but was grateful for the opportunity to share about my magazine, Christian Women's Voice.
Alive in Christ has excellent programming and Toni and Lynn Marino were a blast to work with!

I lit the candle on the buffet by the front door. Lit the one in the kitchen, too.
I fluffed the pillows on the couch and folded the throw blanket over the arm rest.
I checked the bread baking in the oven and adjusted the music from Classical to Christmas carols.
The lights and festive decorations across the fireplace mantle cast a warm glow to the living room and instantly my mood changed from hurried and distracted to centered and settled.
It’s amazing the impact just a few simple elements
can have on my mood and my whole outlook.
Sometimes, to bring real transformation about, you have to change your surroundings, or perhaps just a few simple, though important, elements – the ones that reach beneath the skin.
When we fill our lives with things that are not of the Lord…we become something other than what He desires for us.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2)
Real transformation takes place in the heart…right there where the Lord lives. Only He will make sense out of the chaos. Only He will bring about real transformation.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Cor. 5:17)
