In this mini-series “Dating God’s Way” I teach about the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of dating. In this video I go over why it is important to Guard your Heart and how to do it so you save your heart for the spouse God has for you!
I asked my California Mom to tell her testimony of how Jesus changed her whole life. From former Drug user and Partier to Jesus Freak! She is on fire for the Lord. In this video I asked her to give her story of how Jesus changed her life!
You have to know that no matter where you are, what you have done, or what has a hold on your life God can give you freedom!
This is the last and final video with my interns. I am certainly going to miss them for it has been such an amazing year. I asked each one of them to share the biggest thing they learned about God this year and asked them to tell you one thing they would encourage you about God.
You have to watch it. SOOOOO GOOD!! I love listening to their hearts about the Lord!
Most if not all will have to go through grief. But how? In this video I talk about when I lost 3 friends to suicide in one year. I also go over the 7 stages of grief, as well as God being close to the broken-hearted.
Last video I talked about what Self Identity was and where you can get it from. In this video I share how it comes out in your actions and how it affects every single aspect of your life.
But there is hope, there is freedom and only knowing our true identity is in Christ can we truly have freedom and peace in every aspect of our lives!
How we view our Self Identity dictates everything we do. And it can come through the world’s view of us, our own view of us, or God’s view of us. But whatever you view you choose to believe about your identity will have great affects. So what Identity to you choose to believe about yourself.
SEX! A hot topic!
In this video I talk about how fun and exciting it is. How it was never meant to be boring or shameful. That within God’s boundary it is AMAZING. But what happens when we it outside of God’s design and how does that affect us?
And Yet even in our biggest mistakes there is always HOPE for God’s redemption!!!
A Winter Wonderland is beautiful but only if we don’t pick it apart and talk about all the things we dislike about it. Same with being a follower of Christ, we are beautiful and a new creation in Him but only if we don’t allow ourselves, others, or the enemy to pick us apart and tell us we are not good enough.
If you have been feeling like you are not good enough because of your faults or sin or even because of your crazy past let me encourage you what God says about you. Don’t let anything stop you from doing what Christ is putting on your heart to do. He loves you, adores you, and has a great plan for you: don’t let anything or any body make you feel like you can’t move forward in what God has for you!

Not only is it a common saying in the Christian community to state Nothing Can Separate us from God’s Love, but it is also scriptural:
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
But just because we hear it and know it doesn’t mean deep down we always believe it. Today as I was spending time with the Lord I was talking to Him about my struggles with liking myself. I said something like, “God just change me, operate on me, do whatever it takes but help me to love myself.” The Lord then replied, “You have to mediate on what I say about you, what the word says about you.”
Scriptures started running through my head, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made, when God was done He looked at his creation and said it is good, Nothing can separate us from God’s love” I started to think that if I really believed God loves me, like I know in my head He does, then how could I not love myself like I should.
So I began to question God see if He really did love me.
“Daddy if I murdered someone would you still love me?””Dess do you love your son?”
“Would you love him if he murdered someone”
“I would be super sad but I would still love him.”
I knew God was pointing out that I loved my son the way He loved me. So there went that question.
“Daddy if I slept with many many people and committed adultery by doing so would you still love me?”
God then flashed through my head the book of Hosea. Hosea is written by a prophet who God told to marry a prostitute. He obeyed and had children with her but some time later she left him and started being a prostitute again. The Lord told Hosea to go after her and take her back into his home. By doing so it was a representation of how God loved Israel and even though they were prostituting themselves to other gods the Lord still loved them and wanted to take them back. So that answered that question.
“Daddy if I worshiped other gods and sacrificed offering to Baal would you still love me?”
God flashed an image of me at a Bible time altar sacrificing an animal to Baal. I saw him standing next to me heart broken but still loving me without wavering. He never left my side the whole time.
After that vision I had no more questions. I knew God loved me. And I knew I have to keep speaking scripture over me and the truth of God’s love and who He sees me in order for me to fully believe and be more than a conqueror in this journey I was on, to love myself and not care what any one says about me.
It is hard to believe God’s love is really unconditional. When we do good God’s love doesn’t increase and when we do wrong God’s love doesn’t decrease. He loves us so much. Do you truly know deep deep deep down how much God loves you? If you don’t what do you think it would change if you really grasped a hold of that concept?
For me when I truly get it and love myself I won’t care what people think or say any more about me. I long for that so bad. I am willing to press through and do whatever it takes to get to that point.
Nothing, NO NOTHING can separate us from the Love of God!
