Changing The World In One Simple Step


Do you want to change the world? Do you want more love and less fighting, bitterness and wars? Do you want to create peace and harmony amongst mankind?

I know this may sound impossible to accomplish on a grand level, but YOU can be the soldier of your own war and create unity. YOU can fight the war, defeat the enemies and create peace and harmony within the very walls of your own world. And, it’s only one simple step!

Practice and live out the Golden Rule!

Do you know what the Golden Rule is? God teaches us a revolutionary tool used to create peace amongst others- and it’s actually very basic and easy to achieve!

The Golden Rule is found in the book of Matthew 7:12. It says:

12 “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”

Plain and simple, treat others the way you want to be treated.

Do you realize this one simple action can create a ripple effect and eventually affect multitudes of people?  If I treated you with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and goodness, and you returned the same favor to me, it’d be a win-win for everyone! Just think if it went even further, and that person returned the same favor, which lead to another person returning the favor to someone else…and on and on and on! This simple action would be less opportunity for war and more chances for peace.  The world would be a much better place if we all practiced the Golden Rule.

Friends, let’s do this together! Let’s try in every circumstance, no matter good or bad,  to live out this God-given command. Remember, just one simple action can change this world and leave a lasting impact. YOU could be just the person to start a revolution of peace and harmony.

Let’s get out there and be soldiers for God!


Count Your Many Blessings

Hi! I’m a young wife to a Godly man and mother to two beautiful little girls. I couldn’t be more blessed, and I count my rich and abundant blessings daily. Have you ever heard the hymn, “Count Your Many Blessings”? I often find myself taking a step back from my crazy.busy life and humming and singing the words to this beautiful song.

Just like any mother to young children, life can be a whirlwind of changing diapers, middle of the night cuddles with a tired little girl who had a nightmare (actually,  that’s an excuse just to sleep with mom and dad, ha!), temper tantrums, and runny noses.  I often try to start a household chore, and never finish it because my 2 year old little girl just wrote all over her face, legs and wall with a Magic Marker. My strong willed, blonde hair and blue eyed 5 year old likes to get any attention she can get. Her motto lately is, “Any Attention Is Good Attention.” I feel as if I have never ending piles of laundry to wash, fold and hang, the floors need to be swept (for the millionth time today), and the dishes need to be washed and put away. The life of a young mother can be a whirlwind of emotions, both good and bad.

But you know what? I know I’m gonna miss this. I’m going to one day no longer have those stains to (“TRY”…keyword there) and remove from my daughter’s grass stained pants she wore because she tripped while chasing lightning bugs in the field behind the house.  I’m going to miss my sweet toddler girl writing all over herself with markers, all while sticking her cute little tongue out, concentrating on this newfound sensation she feels when the cold marker touches her skin. I’m going to miss sweeping up crumbs off my wood floors from freshly made cookies us girls made together, because when those crumbs are no more, that means my sweet girls have grown and are no longer “little blessings” in my home, but mature and grown young women.

These are the precious times. Take a good look around. Savor every moment, even the bad ones. Never forget to take a step back and sing in your heart to the Lord , “Count Your Many Blessings, see what God hath done!” There are way too many to count.
