Whatever You Do

The last month has been complete chaos.  I have driven roughly 3000 miles, spent 8 days in Guatemala leading a conference for women.  In the last three weeks, my daughter had her wisdom teeth out and due to an allergic reaction to her anti-biotic spent five days in the hospital.  I was six hours away […]

Ever Since….

“Ever since I brought them from Egypt they have continually abandoned me and followed other gods.” –1 Samuel 8:8   It seems like the theme of my life this year has been God’s faithfulness. He is teaching me daily about His loyalty for His children and about how He keeps His promises. Even when doubt […]

I almost feel guilty for even admitting that I have been struggling because only a few months ago I was writing a blog about how God is faithful. I am learning all the more about […]

(In honor of Pastor Appreciation Month) I recently spent several days at our annual church staff retreat.  The men spend two long days of prayer, juggling the calendar requests from the various ministries in the church for the next year, and planning how to effectively follow the Lord’s command to equip, evangelize and encourage.  A […]

Climbing Mountains

Fear is a powerful thing. I should know. I’m realizing just how much it has held me captive in my life. Like many of you, I have long been motivated by fear. Motivated to keep out all that might harm. To take the safe path. This week my husband and I took our first ever […]
