By Kim Martinez Imagine you are Joseph (the guy in Genesis).  As a young boy, God spoke to you in a dream.  Then, just to make sure you had the picture, He spoke to you in a second dream – this one even bigger than the first.  God told you that you would see your siblings bow down to you. Now Joseph wasn’t just one of 12 brothers.  He was the next to the youngest, and the first born of [...]

The weather has been phenomenal here in the Pacific NW. Last week at baseball practice we were having a barbeque to celebrate our All-Star kids. A friend and I pulled the old barbeque from the field shed. As we were chatting, I opened the lid and to our surprise, a small innocent mouse leaped into our sight. We both screamed and I dropped the lid, swiftly backing away. Our screams lead to laughter as all the kids came running to [...]

Yes, it is true, my sons are ages 12 and 14. And no, they are not married. But someday they will be. It might even be to your daughter, so you may want to keep reading. My children will tell you that I have a singular focus on the development and encouragement of the calling of girls and women. “What is wrong with boys?” they ask. “Nothing.” I say. Boy, are incredible. I am blessed to be the mom of [...]

The Fire and Ice of my Dreams

By |January 10th, 2014|Categories: Coaching, Pondering, Purpose|Tags: , , , , , |2 Comments

There was something evoking about this picture the first time I saw it. I couldn’t take my eyes off of it; it drew me as I wondered what had been inside this ice blanketed building that caught on fire on January 03, 2014.
