Am I Crazy? 

Maybe. I know I use to be. I even used to sing an old Patsy Cline song called “Crazy.”

Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I’m crazy for trying and crazy for crying
And I’m crazy for loving you.

Now those words seem crazy to me!

What I know now is, what the Bible say’s “I have the mind of Christ” (1 Cor 2:16) and I choose to believe that. I am however “CRAZY” about my Jesus! When you are in Love with someone that changes everything! I don’t want my life to be normal, or status quo. I don’t want to go back to the days when the one I was in love with couldn’t rescue my sick soul. The one’s I was in love with could not save me. OH no..I wouldn’t go back for nothing.

I choose to go forward and walk in the steps ordered by the One who loves me!

I choose to run the race and win, cause my team can’t loose!

I choose to offer this Crazy Love from my Love to all, because He compells me.

I choose to spend my days telling others about the unconditional Love of my Lord!

I choose to Love unconditionally until the day He arrives for me.

You can choose too. LOL! But people may call you Crazy like me! Try it. I think you’ll like it!

God’s heart…


All I can say is I normally am ministering to women. But there he was standing near the 105.5 The Beat tent talking and my heart felt so heavy for him. It was the Lord, I am sure of it. He was asking, so you gave away hot dogs here? Yes, said the Kountry Kim from behind the table. We were at the Stay Alive and Thrive Event on April 6th. Our Goal is to get people tested for HIV and STD’s. We invite the world. We have a combined effort of many of many venders to draw the crowd. We tested almost 100 people! That’s a huge success. But…the spiritual part was still in progress even at the end of the day, last guy still there.

I started digging in my purse to give him some dinner money, but it was about more than that. I called him over…I said  quietly “here’s some money for dinner” and held out my hand. He said “Thank you” and his eyes got big and he tried to reach inside the car to hug me. I asked him, would you like prayer? He said yes. I asked do you know the Lord? Have you ever invited Jesus into your heart? He said yes, but then I walk away every time. I said He knows your weaknesses man, Let Him do it this time.  As I began to pray I began to cry. I could feel what I believe was the heart of the Father for him. I didn’t know his life, or his need…but God did. It was an inside job…that’s all I know. The spirit of the Lord, will fill our mouth when we seek Him.

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free… Luke 4:18

Don’t forget God knew him before he was formed in his mothers womb. Jer. 1:5 Also… though my mother and father forsake me, the Lord shall take me up. Psalms 27:10 The Lord cared enough to put him on my heart! He has not forgotten Luke!

Lord, thank you, you have a future for this young man, thank you, you care about where he is laying his head tonight. Your heart is for him and not against hm. Lord, please deliver him from evil. Keep him safe from all harm. Direct Luke in your will. Provide every need he has, like a job, or food, clothing and direction. Lord please show him your amazing love! In Jesus name, amen.

It’s His Love that never fails!

IMG_9148On Good Friday, we went to the adult night clubs and brought beautiful gifts in sweet little gift bags with candy inside and a butterfly flying above the bag. We also brought cupcake trees full of homemade cupcakes by Deborah Vause-Crowe and I heard more than one person say, “Those are the best cupcakes I’ve ever had!” Deborah prayed over her baked goods. She prayed for every woman who received them. Thank you, Deborah! Five girls prepared the gifts for the women and we prayed as we prepared them! OK, now we are ready to go!

It was a priceless moment as we entered the first club and the bartender rang the cow bells! That was exciting right off the bat! We walked around to talk to the women and passes out the cupcakes and the gifts. Each girl thanked us with a hug. One of the DJ’s came down and told me, “There are not many girls here, church lady! I think your prayers are working, they took off for Good Friday, church lady!” I asked, “Are you still going to church?” He responded, “Yes, I am. I go every Sunday. I love it!” As we continued around the club passing out more cupcakes, one of the women came back for a second one. She said, “It was great!” I said softly and smiling,”Don’t tell anyone!”

We traveled on to the next club where we found many girls who were happy about our love gifts! Two of the girls didn’t know me… they were brand new. A couple of the other girls who have been there a bit, told them about how we always come bearing gifts and the new girls welcomed us with open arms! (Wished we could have whisked them right out the back door.) More girls loved their gifts and cupcakes! We also invited them to our “Life Support Group,” and “Stay Alive Health Fair” (to test for HIV and STD’s). We chalked them full of good stuff! As we continued on our journey, the manager recognized the young woman I brought with me… He said, “What are you up to?” She answered, “Trying to do better. Working for this lady now. Doing good.” He looked at me and said, “Don’t forget about me! I’ve been here twenty years!”

When we finished at the clubs, we went to take communion at our church’s Good Friday “In Remembrance Of Him” service which was in progress.  Pastor Phyllis was talking about Jesus’ walk to the Cross. Then she started talking about the thief on the cross. He said to Jesus, “Don’t forget me!” Immediately my mind raced back to that moment in the strip clubs when the manager said, “Don’t forget about me.” “I won’t forget,” I whispered and neither will Jesus.


“I tell you the truth, today you will be with Me in paradise.” 
 Luke 23:43   

It is the Lord’s will that none should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

We went back to the clubs that evening and took more gifts to more precious women. We entered and began looking for girls who hadn’t received their gifts yet. We passed by the girl who had already eaten two cupcakes earlier, and I handed her a third. She said, “They really are the best!” Then she started telling us how she did not want to be there. She told us many horrible things that had happened in her life and asked us to pray for her. We prayed right there and then – in the middle of everything that was going on in there- we prayed, she wept! It was an anointed prayer of deliverance! Praise the Lord! Isn’t it awesome that God would call us back for that one woman!  His precious little sheep!

“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he finds it?”

Luke 15:4

Thank you Lord for your Goodness!

Nothing Last forever…neither did Marilyn

Marilyn Monroe

“Nothing lasts forever, so live it up, drink it down, laugh it off, avoid the drama, take chances & never have regrets, because at one point everything you did was exactly what you wanted.”-Marilyn Monroe

How is that working out for you so far Marilyn? Bad advice to other women.  It’s hard to believe that Marilyn Monroe was someone anyone took advice from. Oh…I must admit in my younger, drinking, rebellious days, I had pictures and quotes by Marilyn decorating my small one bedroom apartment. She made me feel good about my life and my lifestyle.

She made me bearable to me. Little did I know at the time how far Marilyn and I were both off track. Drinking and partying and living for me. That quote is seriously so selfish and self centered, never considering others or their feelings.

I really wish Marilyn would have known what I know now. She actually might still be alive. How could her life have been different if she had not actually have done everything “SHE” wanted to do? What if she had helped others? What if she knew Jesus? What if she knew how much Jesus loved her? Honestly it makes me sad to think about the fact that she didn’t. I know that God had a good plan for her… her and AnnaNicole and Amy Winehouse …and so many more.

“Marilyn could have been like Mr. President you are married and I love Jesus! Haha.. Let’s save the world!”

I stopped all my selfish life stealing addictions and came to someone who really loved me… stopped going from man to man to try to feel loved. I met the one who designed me for greatness and a good future. Today I want to encourage any woman reading this to choose Jesus! He is the way, the truth and the life! And the scripture goes on to say…No one comes to the Father except through me.  John 14:6

My heart breaks for those still lost in addiction! My prayers cry out for Jesus to save them. I can’t tell you how bad I wanted to meet AnnaNicole…or how many times I prayed for her.

God is able! …in other words: Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Eph 3:20

Stop falling for words that just sound good and find out the truth!

Choose Jesus

Go for Whatever…Really?

Gor for Whatever...Really?

Go for whatever makes you happy! Really? Isn’t that what we’ve already done? We have all done what-ever and made a mess of things.

In 2012 “What-ever” was deemed to be the most irritating word of the year, it is used as a passive-aggressive conversational blocking tool, leaving the responder without a convincing retort. Anything they do or say can simply be blocked by the retort of “whatever”. It is negative. The word “Whatever” is used in any form negatively.

Do whatever makes you happy?? What about your family and friends? What about your schooling? Or your marriage, or your job or children? It is never just about you!

My dad spent his life doing whatever and ended up being married 7 times. Yet he wasn’t happy…he still drank all he wanted even drank himself to death. Not to mention what it did to us as children. We began our lives needing things our dad couldn’t provide.

In my life I did whatever and was married 5 times…drank…and became a drunk…BUT (Holy Ghost but) God! God can take a “whatever” and truly give you a new life. In the end “whatever” ended up as rejection in my life.

He took all of my whatever’s and turned them into good. It say’s in the word of God, that God can take all things that are meant for harm and turn them to the good for those who serve Him in His righteousness. He took my heart of rejection and gave me love for all, even to the point of outcasts.

Never once in the word of God does it say to live like WHATEVER! As a matter of fact it gives us instructions about how to live on purpose.

Check out this scripture: Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phil 4:8

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. Col 3:23

But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you—see that you excel in this act of grace also. 2 Cor 8:7

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Cor 10:31

Whatever you do… do it for God! That’s where you will find joy!

International Women’s Day

Sheila and I

Sheila and I

International Women’s Day March 8th

Yesterday was International Women’s Day. What does that mean to you? Nothing? Something? I actually was supposed to be in Antwerp, Brussels today, on a missions trip, reaching out to women in the red light district, but unfortunately had to cancel that trip. But today I worked on helping a women get her license back, another one get her car back and yet another one receive Christ into her heart.

As women, why not help others get a step up. We have all been hurt enough. Truly what the world needs now is love sweet love. It was sung many years ago, but it is still true today.  If we could just show a little compassion toward each other. A hand up or a foot up. Some kind of up…so many people need the exact kind of help YOU can give.

OK…I am kind of feeling like a flower child from the 60’s…”Make love not war”. If we spend more time helping those who need two things can happen, 1. People will be elevated in life and 2. You will feel fulfilled.

God has a plan for each and every one of us. Your’s is maybe to help someone today, their’s to help someone tomorrow. We can’t just think society can do all the helping everyone, cause that’s not really going so well.  Neither is the government doing so well helping. People need people. And people don’t need to know how much you know, they just need to know you do care.

How do I help you ask? OH…let me count the ways. You could help a neighbor, a friend or your church…or a ministry like mine. I can’t tell you how hard it is to get volunteers who are dependable. That is what can help a ministry to do all its called to do, is having a dependable team to make the dream work.

And when you give…my, my my! God says pressed down shaken together and running back over into your lap! Luke 6:38 That’s how I feel ministry has always been for me.

But back to the beginning…We really need to be women helping women! Nothing is better that seeing a life be put back together!

One time a taught a young girl how to count change. Months later I heard her on a blog talk radio show saying, because the purple lady taught me to count change, I was able to get my first job. Wow.. that really empowered her. We can do so little some times and it be so big in the life of a person.

Think about it…how can you empower others?

Don’t choose happiness, CHOOSE Joy!





Don’t Choose Happiness…Choose Joy! 

Happiness can be taken anytime. For instance, someone gives you a brand new cadallic, you’re HAPPY! You drive it around the corner and someone hits you and its totaled. You LOOSE your happiness, in a hurry. 

Joy however is absolutely different! 

When I came to know Christ all the rules changed. NO, I mean when I really became invested in the relationship. (yes, I said relationship, not religion) Once I realized that Jesus Christ loved me…what? Jesus Christ loves me? Coming from a past of feeling rejected, this was pretty good knowledge. My dad was married 7 times and my mom was married 6. I pretty much learned my lifestyle honestly. I had been married 5 times, when I met Christ. So, this is where I say again all the rules changed. Once I was accepted, I was no longer rejected. To go from always being rejected to being accepted changed my thought pattern, my day, my mood, my happiness to JOY. You can’t steal my joy, it’s secure in my relationship. That Joy actually gives me strength. 

Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” Neh 8:10

O LORD, the king rejoices in your strength. How great is his joy in the victories you give! Psalms  27:10

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. Psalms 28:7

WOW! I am so HAPPY to have this kind of Joy! Even when trials come, I know where I am spending eternity! You can not steal my joy! My joy is my anchor! Knowing Christ died for me is something you have come too late to take from me. I can die a very secure woman. As a matter of fact, I will go so far as to say I believe when I die, a smile from deep joy will come across my face.

I just can’t even tell you how I have preached myself HAPPY this morning! LOL! It’s with true JOY that I say this to you. I am accepted and not rejected. 

Get to know Jesus, get JOY!
