Pastor Sandy’s Blog

There’s a Miracle in Your House I noticed a few months ago that I had lost one of the diamond earrings my mom had given me before she passed away seven years ago. I tore up the house trying to find this one earring and kept the other one just in case I found it. They weren’t expensive but I had a sentimental attachment to...

What a ride! I had a friend send me this quote from Hunter S. Thompson that sums up my blog! "Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow!...

There's plenty of opportunity for fear to...

I checked the thermostat and turned it down because it was a really warm day. During the next few hours, I noticed that it kept cutting on and off. I was timing it like I timed my contractions before...

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] I have a love-hate relationship with social media. I consider myself a social person. I love connecting with people and I really love looking at pictures. I love seeing old friends and their families. I love seeing what people are doing in their businesses and great things going on in churches. What I don't love is self-promotion. You know...

I know most people's year starts in January and ends in December. My year starts in August with back to school and ends in May when the kids are out and summer is here. Summer is almost over so it's time to get organized and prioritize my life. Sounds easy enough right? Well, I'm from thesouth where the answer is...

I recently celebrated a college graduation of a friend in her sixties. She had never finished college although her and her husband have been very successful throughout their life. During the celebration she commented to me, "I love everyone in this room tonight. This is my world. These are my friends." I looked around realizing I only knew a few...

Proverbs 31:25 says, "She will laugh at the days to come." This is my goal for 2013 and I hope it becomes your goal too. Statistics show that most fears never come to pass. It is crazy how fast you can build something up in your mind, start to worry about it and then realize none of it has even...

I have never needed God more than I have this past year. I'm going to be totally honest and tell you that this past year has been quite a challenge. I have been a Christian for 40 years and nothing has rocked me like this last year. We had a situation in our lives that came out of left field....

They assume it is an acronym like God's Ultimate Total Sacrifice. It's not. It's simple. It's what it takes to live for Jesus. There are so many challenges that hit each of us everyday. It takes Guts to do...

There's nothing like taking 30 varsity cheerleaders to UCA Cheer Camp in Norman, Oklahoma. Did I add that they are 30 very athletic, talented cheerleaders? They are not only beautiful, but very full of life! They are confident and extremely cheerful to say the least. I learned a lot from these girls. They get up every day ready to WIN! They...

I'm headed to the beach next week to spend time with some high school friends and started thinking that it's been 33 years since we have graduated from high school. That's crazy! It's been 33 years and within a few seconds of being together, it will feel like it was yesterday. I love getting together with old friends and within...

Philippians 4:8 tells us what we are to think on. "Think on these things, whatever things are honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report. If there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, THINK on these things." I love that the Word of God even helps us in our thought life. We have to discipline what we...

I have to admit that I have watched every Bachelor and Bachelorette since season one. I'm not even embarrassed to tell that fact even though most of the episodes are more than embarrassing! I have thought about why so many girls love this show. Two reasons...

My mom used to use this phrase throughout my life and add her quotes or thoughts to help prepare me for life. My mom passed away two years ago but these life lessons will be with me forever. She used phrases like, "If there's one thing I know, you teach people how to treat you. If there's one thing I...

Hundreds of girls gathered at Guts Church and headed out to Give Back to Tulsa and the surrounding areas. They brought Christmas to thousands at every fire and police station in Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Jenks, Bixby, Sand Springs, Skiatook and Glenpool. Ronald McDonald House, The Little Light House, The Tulsa Boys Home, Hope Pregnancy, Glory House, DVIS, Tulsa Juvenile Detention...

Every December, hundreds of Guts Girls hit the streets of Tulsa and the surrounding areas to bring Christmas to our neighbors. Mark 12:30-31 states, "And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your mind, and all your strength." The second is equally important: "Love your neighbor as yourself."  No other commandment is greater than these....

I love Guts Church! It has changed my life in so many ways. Bill and I started Guts Church 19 years ago. The first reason I love Guts is the uncompromising Word of God that is taught and we live by. Nothing watered down. We stand on God's promises. We are a church for the unchurched. We want the ones...
