When They Are Old

June 28th, 2016

What an awesome responsibility and privilege it is to be a parent. When they are babies and not sleeping through the night, you believe it can’t get much worse. Then the toddler years come. If you have any sanity left by the time they are teens, it goes out the window. After almost 15 years [...]

Greater than Gold

June 17th, 2016

I sat with great anticipation in the exam room at the eye doctor. Not just because I’ve become friends with her during the past year and was excited to catch up, but because I knew something was different. I’ve been wearing my glasses less and less, even taking them off at times because I could [...]

Lacking Wisdom?

April 8th, 2016

For two weeks I had been experiencing a weird pain when I stretched. I knew the moment it started, and instantly regretting reaching across my body to grab something in the floor of the front seat of the car, but I couldn’t undo it. So, as the pain began to last longer and become more [...]

The Sacrifice

March 26th, 2016

Before Passion Week began, she displayed her passion for her Lord. Before Jesus went to the cross, she anointed Him. Before He gave Himself for her, Mary poured out all she had on Him. I wonder if she hesitated. When Mary entered the crowded room, did she paused, wishing she could turn around? She knew [...]

Sufficient Courage

March 9th, 2016

Somewhere along the way, Christians began to equate living as Christ to having a nice, easy life. Go to church, give your tithe, read the Bible, pray. Isn’t that what’s required of me? Isn’t that what Christ would want? I thought so at 21. Until I went to Russia on a missions trip. For three [...]

The Best Pathway

February 21st, 2016

So much can happen in a year. A baby goes from newborn to walking. A couple can go from engaged to husband and wife. A college student can graduate and find the job of her dreams. 52 weeks, 365 days. A lot of change can take place.  What if the Lord asked you to give [...]

In Every Situation

January 19th, 2016

Before the healing, came the illness. Before the release on Monday afternoon, came the ER visit Saturday night. There I was, staring at my almost 12 year old, wondering, trying not to be anxious. But as every parent knows, the only good time to have your kids in the hospital is when they come into [...]

Dwelling Place

January 15th, 2016

I’ve never seen a fearful koala. In all my years of going to the zoo, this is the pose I tend to find them in – looking oh-so-cuddly, content, and safe lodged in between the branch of a eucalyptus tree and the trunk. Humans, however, often live in fear. We are exposed to the world [...]

2015 – A Year of Contentment

January 1st, 2016

Dear Lord, What a year 2015 has been. A year of smiles, a year of tears. A year of happiness, a year of pain. I’m thankful for the trials of this year not because I enjoyed them, but for what they taught me – patience, perseverance, trust, love, peace, and true contentment. The contentment that [...]

Without Love

December 19th, 2015

‘Tis the season for long lines and short tempers. A woman (actually an employee at the grocery store) yelled at me when I was shopping last week because she thought I was cutting in line. In reality I was walking past the self check-outs to get more coupons that were by the front door. What [...]

Keep Climbing

December 11th, 2015

My kids are now into rock climbing. Well, boulder climbing actually. The walls are not as tall so no harness is required, just hard work and a mat beneath in case you fall. They go expecting to have sore hands after an hour. They know their muscles will hurt the next day, but that doesn’t [...]

The Beginning of the End

October 25th, 2015

This has been the photo on my phone for several weeks. Usually I have a verse I’m memorizing, but sometimes rather than reading God’s promises, we need to physically see them. I put this picture on my phone to remind me that in the middle of pain, God gives joy. This was taken during the [...]

Never the Same

September 1st, 2015

I stared at the optometrist technician as she held my new prescription in her hands. “Bifocals? You mean I have to wear these glasses all the time?” She continued to speak as my heart dropped. I’ve never needed glasses all the time. In fact, I had gone from far sighted to near sighted in the [...]

41 – The Road to Perfection

July 26th, 2015

Four months ago I was ready to be done with 41. Sure, the first half was great. I was working out several times a week, loosing weight, full of energy. My next book was just awaiting my final revisions before I sent it off to my editor.  Ministry filled my life, not trials. All was [...]

Gratitude

July 1st, 2015

It had been a great day at the happiest place on earth. There was lots of laughter, smiles, and fast moving lines. As we walked towards the exit sometime past ten o’clock, my son looked me over. “How are you feeling?” His voice was hopeful, as it always is when he poses that question to [...]

When There is No Answer

June 15th, 2015

“Mom, I don’t get it,” my 11-year-old daughter said while listening to the story of Job. “Why does Satan always have a spooky voice in stories?” “Well, he’s really not a good guy, sweetie,” I told her. “Do you remember what his goal is?” “To keep people away from God?” she asked. I turned to [...]
