Joyfully Broken-hearted

Joyfully Broken-hearted

A very dear friend in our Monday morning Bible study group made some comments yesterday that turned me inside out in a productive way. My friend and I are very different – polar opposites in every way except in our love for the Lord. We often laugh about how we can be such good friends […]

How Can I Help?

How Can I Help?

Have you noticed the people of the world are lost? Because they live in the dark, they act and react like lost people. So, why do their actions surprise us?  Consider some of the societal problems we have now – abortion, a divisive government, racism, homelessness, pornography, poverty, abuse, homosexuality, sex trafficking, drug/alcohol addiction, depression, […]

Oh, My Word – A Video Blog Today

Oh, My Word – A Video Blog Today

I’m with you today in person (sort of) to kick off a brand new year! I hope you feel as excited as I am about all the possibilities and opportunities that lay before you. I know God has wonderful things planned for you! I’ve prayed for over a year now and finally harnessed some courage […]

Watch the Eyes

Watch the Eyes

My friend Kim and I walked into the familiar room of about 25 ladies eagerly seeking freedom from drugs and alcohol. They had assembled for our once-a-month Bible study, one that always jolts our hearts with joy. Newcomers eyed us timidly. Old-timers smiled and greeted us warmly.  Whenever we stand in front of a group, […]

Merry Christmas as You Lean into Jesus

Merry Christmas as You Lean into Jesus

By now stockings are hung by the chimney with care, chestnuts are sizzling on an open fire, and halls display a bounty of holly … somewhere in the world! Merry Christmas Eve! Today, I want to share a ministry with you as a gift from my heart. For five years now I’ve been blessed by […]

The Great Gift Exchange

The Great Gift Exchange

This time next week we will be smack dab in the middle of the giving and receiving of gifts. Some of those gifts will paint wide grins on happy faces, while others will … well … you know.  Like most of you, as a kid I couldn’t wait to tear into my presents. Ribbons and […]

Young Faith and Old Hearts

Young Faith and Old Hearts

Since December naturally funnels our thoughts toward Jesus, I’ve kept my eyes open this week for a fresh approach to writing about His birth. Yesterday, my eyes landed once again on a treasure I received from our church on Mother’s Day. A frameable print of Luke 1:45 perches on a ledge above my bathroom sink. […]

How to Thrive in the Process

How to Thrive in the Process

Last week, the seeds planted by my mother and two grandmothers that had lain dormant for the past two years thankfully sprouted and took root again inside me. The joy over my most favorite holiday returned, transforming my Thanksgiving preparations into pure delight. Like many of you, I asked all my peeps for their food […]

We Can’t Change What We Don’t See

We Can’t Change What We Don’t See

Every Monday morning for the last thirteen weeks, our small group trekked through the Freedom curriculum written by Church of the Highlands’ leaders. All eleven of us representing six different churches removed layer after layer of what the enemy had spent years binding tightly around us. We ripped through our pride, fear, rejection, unforgiveness, hurtful […]

When a Christian Hurts You

When a Christian Hurts You

My head knew what I wanted to write today. I even had the outline done. But then, I noticed yet another person somewhere in the world had clicked on a blog posted on May 24, 2016. This wasn’t the first time it had been recently viewed, so I decided to revisit it myself to investigate the […]

When Being Undone is a Good Thing

When Being Undone is a Good Thing

Slow your mind for a moment, and imagine the questions Lazarus must have fielded after his resurrection. (John 11) What was dying like? After you took that first breath, were you surprised you were bound? How many people did it take to set you free? How did you feel when you looked again into the […]

Helping Others Trust Your Change

Helping Others Trust Your Change

Being accused of something you didn’t do, think, or say stinks.  Math was never my best subject in school, especially algebra. I think the reason I developed such a bad attitude toward the mix of letters and numbers was because of my seventh-grade algebra teacher. She wreaked of cigarette smoke, wore a constant scowl, and […]

Oh, My Word

Oh, My Word

Do you realize you possess the power of life and death?  “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” (Proverbs 18:21) Each of us can breathe life into a relationship, or we can sentence it to death by simply choosing hurtful words. Words spoken to us, shape us. If we’ve inhaled a flurry of […]

Clean Freaks, Hoarders, and Clutter Cleaners

Clean Freaks, Hoarders, and Clutter Cleaners

I hate cleaning out the refrigerator. Period! Next to ironing, it’s my least favorite thing to do. If you could put both of those chores in a sack, throw them off a high cliff, and let them sink into the depths of the sea I might actually enjoy housework. Maybe. 🙂 Since I despise fridge duties, […]

Out of Control

Out of Control

The thoughts of riding a roller coaster infect my whole body with heebee jeebies. I told my man a long time ago, “If you really love me, you’ll never ask me to ride a roller coaster.” For the most part, he’s complied with that request.  It’s not that I fear high places – I don’t. […]
