Giving Glory to God

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! Think of a time when something great has happened, or you’ve accomplished an impossible task. Did you pat your back and say, “Go me! I just did this great thing! I did it all by myself!”? I have done this more times than I can count. I love to take the credit […]

We Are Comforters

The Voices in Our Heads

·         I’m not equipped or skilled enough to do that! ·         The ‘in’ crowd never wants to invite me in. ·         I’m not bold enough or have an outgoing personality. ·         My marriage will never look like hers. ·         Why do I feel so unwanted in my own family? ·         Why don’t my kids look […]

Flaming Arrows? Shield of Faith!

Sometimes Scripture just needs to speak for itself. “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in […]

Grief Turns to Worship

As we celebrated the resurrection this Easter, I spent some time reading in each of the four gospels, focusing on the women who discovered that the tomb was empty. I love so much about this. I love that it was the women that were there first. I love that they were doing what they could […]

Such a Time as This

I live a mile from what locals call “Lincoln Farm”, a small rolling farm that was once owned by a man named Thomas Lincoln.  There, on a cold day in February, a baby named Abraham was born in a tiny cabin…a baby destined for history.  President Abraham Lincoln is one of the most recognizable presidents […]
