Bucket Lists: Are they too limiting?

The idea behind the Bucket List comes from the movie Bucket List with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson that was out in 2007. Merriam Webster describes a bucket list as: “a list of things that one has not done before but wants to do before dying.” Obviously the idea caught on and has had everybody talking while…

Make a Difference – Selfless Courage

Several weeks ago, our youngest son, J, stood in a room with a few other young men with their right hands raised pledging to honor, defend and protect the United States of America.

About

Hi,

I’m here to come alongside mission-hearted women who are ready serve and share.

I spent too much of my life waiting for “someday” to begin impacting others through writing and following the call God had placed in my heart as a young girl. In recent years, I have seized the gift of a second chance and had my bubble burst wide open (numerous times). If you are ready to make a difference, come along with me and get ready to shine!

Let’s do it together!

"It's my goal to spend some quiet time with God each morning. Some days I feel rushed, and some days I'm not sure where to start. I thought this book was going to provide me with 21 days of reading to give more structure to my quiet time. I was surprised that there at SIX SETS of 21 day plans! Some examples include RENEWED FAITH for What's True, DECISION for What's Lingering, and PREPARATION for What's Next. Personally, I jumped straight to GUIDANCE for What's Wise. If you are looking for ways to make your morning time more manageable and meaningful, this is the guide for you!"

"An extremely well written and inspiring book. You can choose the adventure you wish to take for 21 days according to where you are in life at this moment. An outline of each set of days and exercises that will give you pause to think, reflect, and move forward. The author is a very worthwhile addition to the Christian writing world, and I look forward to more from her."

"Where do I start? Esther Hughes has written such a heartfelt and compelling book on relationships with God. Her ability to relate excerpts from the Bible to modern times is exceptional. I have enjoyed my spiritual journey as I read through the pages and "adventures" of many famous names in Biblical history. A one time read is not enough, I have read this book 3 times!! And I learned something different every time. A must read, if you want to learn, be enlightened and go on a true spiritual journey."

"Esther lights up any room she is in. Genuine Christian joy is her secret and she doesn't keep it hidden. The depth of her faith and the ease with which she delivers truth based on God's Word, makes Christianity appealing to the every listener. She lives the message she carries and bursts the dark heaviness women so often carry with hope, humor, grace and compassion."
