Choices. Choices. Choices. God was on me about the simplicity and necessity of looking at my choices a few months ago. I believe He was trying to show me how easy it is to change a moment, the course of a day…my entire life for that matter.
It’s that easy. So why do we make it so hard? I chose to work out today because I love the way it makes me feel, and I get to
chat with my friend. I chose to say I’m sorry to my daughter last night instead of feeling like crap
for acting out in my own frustration. I chose to get vulnerable with my husband last night and open up to him about why I’m upset instead if saying I’m fine. 
What POSITIVE choice can you make today to change your attitude, change the state of a relationship or even make someone else smile?! Let’s DO it…Let’s DO it all day long!!  ~ Stephanie Wanic


Restored Ministries Mission

With the Robin Williams tragedy splashed all over the news, computers, and our twitter and Facebook feeds; I can’t help but feel certain that what the world needs desperately is Jesus Christ. Robin Williams is just one more in the millions of people suffering from addiction and depression that have taken their own life. Our world is full of hurting people living meaningless lives on the brink of death because they are holding on to secrets, sins, or struggles. People don’t need some dead dry religion or sets of rules, they don’t need judgement, they need the real living breathing Spirit of God to blow through their lives and remove all the junk the world tries to throw at us and keep us bound. People need someone to share the Truth of God’s Transforming and Restoring power to change their hearts and lives. Only Jesus breaks every chain! We are not meant to do life alone. It is not a competition. We need to stop playing like we have it all together and share our vulnerability, our hurts, our struggles, our stories. We all have a story that needs to be told. We repair our stories when we begin to share our stories. We are only as sick as our secrets.
We only overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the words of our testimony. #RestoredMinistries wants to see Overcomers rising up! We want to see people begin to #LiveRestored lives.
