My first post on this new blog was entitled “Clarity.” I wrote, “God told me to simplify things.” Then, I had no idea how prophetic that was.

A month or so later, God told me and my husband it was time to leave the church where he had pastored for 6 years and to start our own. God used us there for a season and for a reason, and we cherish the relationships we made while serving in ministry. Our new assignment, which really isn’t new because God ordained it from the beginning, is to form A People of God Church where anyone who so desires can experience real love, real worship, real service, REAL SIMPLE.


I tell you no lie. God had this new thing already worked out. It’s sorta creepy when you think about it.

God had me strip down my old ministry ( to this simple, clean, clear design. All I kept hearing in my head was “it’s too much, it’s too much, it’s too much.”

Focus on my Word.

Tell the Truth.

Share your heart.

I doesn’t take all of that (stuff).

Keep it simple.

Keep it about ME.

Hence, the formation of A People of God.

It feels really good to be free of the excess. The word says to lay aside every weight and sin that so easily besets us (Hebrews 12:1). My husband and I have done that. Now we can run our race without the extra weight of complexity and confusion.

If life seems chaotic and confusing, I encourage you to SIMPLIFY. It really doesn’t take all of the extra stuff to live and serve and love like the one who saved us.
