Reflecting on the process

“God investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand. I’m an open book to you; even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking.” Psalm 139:1

Have you ever gotten lost in reliving and rearranging experiences, some regretfully and others with a full-on plan as to how things would have turned out if you had done it differently? Well I have! The truth is, my mind processing has become a ‘brain activity marathon’. And as much as this journey of life has become a long distance run, I’m thinking that I more than likely have a few more ...

From a caterpillar to a butterfly

From a caterpillar to a butterfly

"I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out - plans to take care of you not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. " Jeremiah 29:11

As far back as I can remember I had an oversized imagination. In my very early childhood, I would dream aloud; dreaming more in my awake-hours than if I were asleep. This would give me the exclusive privilege of having incredible conversations with the imaginary whomever's my dreams included and whatever my dream entailed. 


The downside of these magical moments is that I started ...

The Reality of God | My Prayer for 2017

The Reality of God | My Prayer for 2017

The truth is, what's visible and touchable are realistic facts that no amount of reasoning can discount. Facts captivate our attention, arouse our desires, energize our discussion and establish our conclusion. Our responses to what's factual have no bearing on the underlying component or the ultimate outcome of the actual fact. Although facts can be dangerous and destructive, they can also be logically conceived and are visibly available.

So, you may ask, 'what's the difference between a fact and the truth, and how does God fit in both elements of reality?’  My answer to both parts of that ...

Persevering Women In Leadership - Who are they?

WHY does the subject of women in Leadership still present itself as a primary point; oftentimes, triggering static conversations and itchy debates?  Will it ever go away? My question is, why should it? If this subject still irritates stubborn mindsets and incarcerates the progress of women, then it should remain a subject of primary importance until God’s purpose is acceptably identified.

Women are natural connectors born to be nurturers and find no difficulty in identifying with pain, passion or purpose. For this reason, powerful spaces should be made to connect and enrich their ...

    It is a genuine pleasure, privilege and honor to share my relationship with Arlene as testament to her character personally and professionally.  Arlene values her relationship with people and is incredibly invested in keeping her word.  Through many years of friendship living in Miami, sharing the joy and challenges of life, Arlene has proven rock solid and a keeper of her word.  We have traveled overseas together on mission trips where Arlene had oversight of the missions team.   I was present when difficult decisions were necessary and Arlene exhibited these values.

Arlene Hoffman is a woman pleasant to describe. She is as strong as she is tender. She is as wise as she is teachable. She is also as quick witted as she is patient. She is an eloquent orator and a keen listener, taking in as much as she gives.

This sounds like a confounding and complicated person at first glance. Someone may read that and feel intimidated.

I have known Arlene for over 5 years. I have known each of these facets of her character and am equally fascinated by each distinct part. I have relied on her strength ...
