Are any other moms out there wondering how in the world they’re going to start this homeschooling thing while also working/running their businesses? If so, I hope this story encourages you!

Yesterday I was really questioning how I’m going to homeschool while running a business, being a major contributor to another business, and caring for all my normal family & home responsibilities. (Something’s gotta give, right?) But I got a glimpse into how this is going to work and the grace God has already provided for it...

Noah went with me to run at the track yesterday and we had a math lesson on our drive prompted by him. He wanted to know how many laps he’d need to run in order to run 10 miles. We will jot down what we learned in his notebook later when we have time, but I felt Holy Spirit say, “see, it’ll be just that easy.” And I didn’t have to sacrifice exercise or “me” time to do it.

In late June I had a dream that I knew I was supposed to share, but I’ve been sitting on it waiting for the right time. This dream and message is for The Church, anyone who is a Christian.

I’m going to share the interpretation before the dream itself. The message of the dream I believe is that God is inviting us to have His vision in these times, not to partner with fear, and to be in awe of how He is bringing things together. It’s not the end of the world, though things are changing so much it may feel like the end of the world that we knew. We are being invited to lift our vision to Heaven as He is bringing everything together and be in awe!

I dreamt that there was something going on with the sky at sunset. I was in a large building with people, some I knew and recognized who were also Christians. I looked out a window and could see at least one planet in the sky besides the sun and the moon. All three (the sun, moon, and another large planet) were aligning. It was like a planetary convergence. The sky was very yellow/bright. I felt a little fear because it didn’t look like our normal sky and I didn’t know what was going to happen when these three bodies aligned. People in the building with me were afraid of the unknown, and were talking like it was the end of the world.

If you are a Christian and are feeling fearful I encourage you to ask God to give you His vision for what is happening. I went through a week or so struggling with fear myself in July even after having this dream and knowing that God was encouraging me to keep my eyes on Him. So if you’re feeling fearful in any capacity, there’s no shame, but be invited into freedom! Read Psalms 23 & 24 for Scripture that will encourage and comfort your heart.

Feel free to reach out in the comments or privately and I will pray for you and encourage you!

“For God will never give you the spirit of fear, but the Holy Spirit who gives you mighty power, love, and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:7 TPT

[08/04/20]   Have you been struggling with any anxiety, dread, fear, or depression lately?

I found myself slipping into this some recently because I took my eyes off of the source of Hope and onto the troubles of the world and what some have been saying.

Once I saw that rotten "fruit" of anxiety, dread, fear, and depression begin to emerge I asked God to help me get my eyes back on Him and what He is saying. Immediately, the chorus to the song "All my fountains are in you" began to "play" in my mind. I put it on and began to worship and declare the truths over myself. It filled me with hope!

He led me to listen to someone's message on YouTube who speaks from Heaven to earth and I felt all that yuckiness melt right out of me. Anytime I feel anxiety come knocking again, figuratively speaking, I put my arm out and say, "Nope! You aren't allowed to steal from or harm me anymore."

If you are feeling tossed around by anxiety, dread, fear, or depression I declare over you that it MUST LET YOU GO AND NEVER DO IT AGAIN! I don't care what the source is for where you're receiving information or leadership, if the outcome in you is anxiety, dread, fear, or depression it IS NOT from God and has a bad spirit behind it. Remember, we are not fighting against flesh and blood, but spiritual forces of evil.

Honor people, stand firm against spiritual forces. We are held firmly and safely by HOPE.

“Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see. For the glory of the Lord rises to shine on you. Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth, but the glory of the Lord rises and appears over you. All nations will come to your light; mighty kings will come to see your radiance." Isaiah 60:1-2 NLT

"For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places." - Ephesians 6:12 NLT

"We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love." Romans 5:3-5 NLT

Have you ever had thoughts that question what God has said to you either personally or through Scripture? Any thought that makes you question what God has said IS NOT FROM HIM. When I face these kinds of thoughts I stand on what God HAS said. I remind myself of Scripture, I worship in spirit & truth, and I review my personal promises of God.

“For although we live in the natural realm, we don’t wage a military campaign employing human weapons, using manipulation to achieve our aims. Instead, our spiritual weapons are energized with divine power to effectively dismantle the defenses behind which people hide. We can demolish every deceptive fantasy that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One.”- 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 TPT

Recently, I’ve heard thoughts like “What you are building is going to fail. You are out of time. You aren’t going to have what you need.” But, I know that NONE of these are true because God has told me otherwise. So I rehearse His promises and declare them over my circumstances. Here’s an example, the weekend before Together Studios was to open our van broke down. It’s our only vehicle and my only way to travel for work. I was faced with the thought “you aren’t going to have what you need, see you’re so terrible with providing for your family you can’t even afford a spare vehicle.” It was SO blatantly accusatory I actually laughed and declared that I WOULD have everything that I needed to accomplish the task God has given me.

Have you ever questioned why you and your spouse are SO different from each other in certain ways? If so, this may encourage you. Something clicked for me recently. I’ve always questioned why Justin and I are very different in one particular and important area of our lives: our role in The Church. Not that I’d want to change him, but I’ve asked God the purpose of the stark difference in our passion in that area.

I’m very passionate about The Church and while Justin loves God, he is different in his expression. Holy Spirit showed me that Justin is called to be a protector and to nurture our family. That is his role in the natural as well as in the Spiritual. So he is passionate about the protection of and provision for people, especially his family.

Holy Spirit showed me that I wouldn’t be able to do what I’m called to do without the partnership and role that Justin provides me. I knew this on some level, but this realization gave me a whole new appreciation for Justin’s role in our family, marriage, and in The Church as a whole. I shared this with him recently and it was one of the most beautiful conversations in our relationship to date. It’s definitely in my top five. I believe it’s because Justin felt SEEN and VALIDATED in areas that I had either knowingly or unknowingly pressured him to be someone he isn’t.

Justin immediately turned to our oldest son who was with us, Noah, and began speaking so much life into him! He told him specific things he loved about him and how proud he was of him. Noah was beaming with joy in being seen and loved! I felt that God gave me a glimpse that afternoon into the flow of heaven into our families. It starts with honor. Honor who your spouse is, who God created them to be. Speak that to them. Make your support known with your words and actions. Speak words of life into your children. If you don’t know where to start, start by asking God who He created your spouse and children to be. What’s special about them? What does God love about them? Then agree with Heaven and release it through your words.

DREAM: The case for California is being heard.

I had a dream early in the morning on 7.17.2020.

In the dream, I was in a courtroom. The case for California was being heard. The audience was full of Californians. They were the audience, but they were also the jury, but not the judge. When asked or questioned about the governor lifting the rule to not sing in church they responded in unison and like a chant, “No he’s never going do that” It was eerie and sounded like an echo. It was as if they were brainwashed. I was standing at the front and I said “they’re chanting” and then shouted at them, “WAKE UP!”. Danny Silk (who is a Pastor) was the lawyer pleading the case for California. He was at a table in the middle towards the front near me but didn’t say anything. It was like the audience/the Californians had the ability and the power to make or influence the decision for California.

When I woke up I wrote down the dream and began asking God for the meaning and what to do with it. I felt strongly I needed to share it because it is insight into what is going on Spiritually for California right now given the Governor’s most recent mandates. I also reached out to my trusted friend, Kimberly Irene Woods, to share this dream so I could receive counsel and confirmation. She confirmed I needed to share it and helped to provide the translation of the dream.

Here is what we feel God is showing me.

Californians need to change what they are agreeing with their words. The Californians in my dream weren’t saying whether the Governor was right or wrong in his decisions. They were agreeing with their words that he would never change it. It’s interesting that the day after I had this dream I saw that the California Governor had not only banned singing and “chanting” in churches but had also banned in-home fellowship meetings. And in the dream, the Californians were “chanting” “No he’s never going to do that” about the Governor changing the mandate.

The Church needs to recognize the power that She holds in her words and her voice.

There is a portion of The Church of California that is just being an echo of the world instead of a melodious and life-giving voice of Jesus declaring God’s will in the earth. (Remember Jesus taught us to pray “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” Matt. 6:10)

I felt Danny Silk represented Pastors who are trying to represent and lead their churches in California. But, it isn’t the Pastors’ job to fight this themselves, it is the whole Church’s job to wake up and start partnering your words and your worship with Heaven instead of current earthly circumstances. What you say and what you sing matters and it is being weighed in the Spiritual.

California’s case is being heard and I pray and declare that She will shake off the echo of the world and break into Heavenly song! The Church has already been given the Victory through Jesus so She will be victorious!
