America Needs You!

My son left his billfold at home so I rode up to the high school to drop it off. I met the principal in the hallway. He laughed when I told him why I was there. We had taught school together and he had known my son since kindergarten, so he wasn’t really surprised to […]

On Eagles’ Wings? Maybe Not

I don’t mind admitting when I’m wrong. I’ve had lots of practice. It seems as though all the things I said about eagles in my last blog were only a myth.  (Thanks go to to my new friend Mary who pointed that out to me.) I’m so disappointed because it made such a good introduction to the point […]

Standing in the Need of Prayer

When my son was a little boy it became quite common for me to wake up in the middle of the night to the tune of, “Mama! Come here!” I’d rush to his room and find him writhing around in the bed wanting me to rub his feet. Growing is a painful process. Just last […]

Woo Hoo!

I feel like a mother whose just given birth! It’s been a long process that began with lots of uncertainty and ended with a long labor of love. The writing of Temple Sweeepers: Motivation for a Healthy Body and Soul was completed last week. While still covered by the protective hands of my sweet editors, I am making preparations […]

He influences his fellow officers to commit to a set of resolutions that revolutionize their lives. Our church family has just begun a new study centered on this movie. There […]

We Are the Body

Writing the book, Temple Sweepers: Motivation for a Healthy Body and Soul, has been an incredible journey. I originally planned to have this book finished several months ago, but God has opened my eyes during this process and taught me some wonderful things along the way. I am about two weeks away from finishing and then the […]

I’m Gonna Take Real Good Care of You

Most of my early childhood memories are stored as snapshots, not video. Pasted in my mind’s photo album labeled “Three Years Old” is a picture of my mom ironing a mountain of my daddy’s shirts – heavy on the starch. Right next to it is one of my little dog and me playing on the […]

Just Singing in the Rain

Late yesterday afternoon my husband and I took a walk at the farm. We noticed as we rounded the curve that the four killdeer bird eggs we had been watching had disappeared. Instead, two little baby mini-mamas scampered for safety as we got closer. I looked again more intently at their nesting place and saw […]
