Shrek said it best when he said, “Ogres are like onions.  They have lots of layers.” or something like that. Taking that statement one step further we all have many layers.  That’s the way God made us.

When I’m teaching my young acting students how to develop a character, I ask them to look at all the facets of their character’s make up.  We aren’t happy all the time.  We react to things in life in a variety of ways.  We show different sides of our personality and unless you’re Dr. Jekyl, you have way more than two of them.

Our inner workings are so complex that even the best the medical profession has to offer is amazed at the intricacies of the human body.  The complexity of the brain can hold and transmit as much information as the best computer.  Even with all our current medical knowledge, there is still much to learn about the brain.  That grey matter holds many secrets and really great strides have not yet been made in the treatment of mental illness.

God made us in such a way, that everything within us works together.  Jesus referred to the church as the body of Christ.  We all have a different function in the process of living.  We need to work together in order to exist.

Praise God for so fearfully and wonderfully making each and everyone of us in a unique and special way.  Each layer is perfectly designed to contribute to the makeup of His kingdom.  Thank Him for making you a part of that.  Use your gifts and talents to serve Him and share the wonderful news of His salvation.




As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
