Author Quotes

Your attachment to unhealthy people and bad habits, which offer you no real control, is why you?re spiritually dying and living a life out of balance.

You're going to come across some truly gifted people in your lifetime that seem to know all the answers. However, they lost their personal relationship with God, along the way. Love them anyways, and do everything you can to help them restore that relationship. They are fighting a war that you don't know anything about.

When you are joyful, when you say yes to life and have fun and project positivity all around you, you become a sun in the center of every constellation, and people want to be near you.

When you have the courage to follow your talents into the dark unknown places they lead, often God will send angels to light your way.

When you think yours is the only true path you forever chain yourself to judging others and narrow the vision of God. The road to righteousness and arrogance is a parallel road that can intersect each other several times throughout a person's life. It?s often hard to recognize one road from another. What makes them different is the road to righteousness is paved with the love of humanity. The road to arrogance is paved with the love of self.

Winning and losing is not an external game. It is an internal battle over telling yourself the truth vs. lies regarding why you haven?t stepped into the life you dreamed of.

You can change the place you live, your clothes, your interests, your friends, your religion and even your partner. However, if you forgot to change your mind, attitude, beliefs about the world, how you treat people and how you plan to be different this time around, why did you even bother?

You didn?t choose God. He chose you. When you stop feeling hurt by everyone and plotting your comeback, he has some very important things he wants you to accomplish with your life.

You might lose battles in your life time. However, every person that stands bravely on the side of justice, for people that have no voice, wins the true battle---Gods.

Your body is a temple, not a daily dumping ground for another person?s pain, anger, betrayal, judgment, hypocrisy, denial, games, jealousy or blame. When you are being psychologically, spiritually or emotionally abused by a person, and they don?t care how it hurts you, then it is time to leave what is polluting your relationship with God.

When you are near the middle of your life, often God will do outrageous things to knock you back on course.

When you invite people to share in your miracle, you create future allies during rough weather.

When you turn your back on hypocrisy and do nothing you don?t change the hearts of others you change yours.

Winning or losing achieves the same result--change.

You can find anyone that will tell you what you want to hear, but the only one worth valuing is the one that tells you what you need to learn.

You don?t go to church to find God; you bring him with you?attitude.

You need to forgive people you don't understand; if not, try to understand people you want to forgive.

Your current situation = the life expectations you have accepted as completed, unless you change your comfort zone to create a better life.

When you are no longer afraid is when you can be yourself.

When you judge other people without wanting to know the true story behind their actions, is usually when there is something inside of you that is so broken that if you found out what you believed about them was a lie, you wouldn?t want to accept it or make amends.

When you?re given the gift of truth, you spend a lot of time trying to tone it down because it is already offensive enough.

With dark raven paper and twinkling white ink, I wrote my heart in the night?s sky.

You can have regret from yesterday, fear tomorrow but peace today by sharing your heart?s deepest feelings. A life spent being fearful of showing your soul is a life not worth living.

You don?t have to say everything to be a light. Sometimes a fire built on a hill will bring interested people to your campfire.

You were the poem I never knew how to write because no words could describe the wind you cannot see, but feel.
