Although it has been a year since I have posted a blog, that doesn't mean we have been quiet.
Last year was a challenging year. My mom passed and I was finishing a dissertation about the Women of Destiny program. I was very busy with the activities and our businesses. I also made a trip to Italy with my two daughters in June. The day I got home, my mother passed. She was 97 and is now with Jesus. She lived a blessed full life.Read Full Post »

Everytime I visit a House of Prayer (HOP) (the kind that is open 24/7 or all day, with two hour worship or intecessory sets), I wonder if a HOP would or could be supported in Fresno. I love coming to PIHOP (Pasadena Int't House of Prayer) when I'm in the area. I come and sit, rest, worship, sometimes write (like I am now) or read. It is just a great atmosphere ...Read Full Post »

I once heard a teacher give a message on stages of church planting and growth. After hearing it, I began to understand my gifting a little more. I am a trailblazer and pioneer. I've come alongside other pioneers (church plants) and started educational programs, non profits and social enterpises.
First, there are the trailblazers. They are the ones who not only have the vision to go so...Read Full Post »

Learning the Language of the 7 Spheres of Influence
Several years ago, I sensed in my spirit the Lord say, I would be learning the language and culture of the seven spheres of influence. As a wife and mom, and former teacher and principal, I felt I knew a lot about FAMILY and EDUCATION. I learned more about the SPIRITUAL sphere as I led a faith-based non-profit the last several years. I’ve le...Read Full Post »

About five years ago, we started an official Christian club at CSU Fresno called Club Hope. My daughter also started a club Hope at a local public high school. What did we do? We worshipped and prayed on campus in public (in the peace garden) for a few hours every Monday. We prayed for anyone who asked for it. We also coordinated and collaborated with a few other C...Read Full Post »

When I first started the ministry, the Lord gave me instruction first to prayer walk Fresno. For some strange reason (H.S.) I had this burden for Fresno that I could not shake. I felt God wanted to do something special in the city where I was born and raised. The summer of 2007 I began the walk. I walked over a hundred miles in a year span. I would grab my map, outline a 3-5 mile square block,...Read Full Post »
