Reach Out and Touch

REACH OUT AND TOUCH   Last week I mentioned that I would be in Texas for my High School Dance Team Reunion.   These reunions began 5 years ago in an effort to not only connect with fellow Vikettes but to honor Gayla King, our former director. Mrs. King was the dance team director from 1964-1981 […]

For weeks I have been looking forward to my nieces wedding.  Not just because I love weddings and wedding cake, but because the wedding is in Texas.  I am one of those obnoxious proud Texans.  I have lived out of the great state of Texas half of my life, but it’s still home.  There’s just […]

Anxiety or Peace?

“…The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.   Philippians 4:5-7 Last week my best friend’s […]

As I sit here listening to my 6 month-old baby girl jabber on, I can quickly recount many ways that my life has drastically changed since becoming a mother, or even since finding out I was going to be a mother.  My life’s happenings have changed.  Can we go out to eat with friends?  As […]

Preaching from the bed of a Truck

    My love for missions, and missionaries, began early in my Christian life. I was a fairly new believer and Bruce and I had only been married eight months when the two of us (plus the tiny seed of our first child growing in me) made the long trip to Lower Brule, South Dakota. […]
