Pack Light

In the next month, I have the privilege of flying to Las Vegas, Orlando and Puerta Vallarta.  Being the OCD-list maker-packing professional that I am, I have already begun my list of what I will need to pack.  I will be going the carry-on route for these trips, so I am trying to pack as […]

Be Encouraged

I just want to encourage you! As I think about the devastation of Harvey in Texas and Louisiana and beyond and with so much going on in our lives; sometimes we have to encourage ourselves. I have included scriptures in this post to help keep you encouraged.  Know that you are not alone and God […]

Voices

This past weekend, my husband and I went to see The Dark Tower.  It was one of his favorite movie genres – sci fi/fantasy.  A basic story about good vs. evil.  Since my husband and I are both really aware of sermon illustrations when we go to the movie, it didn’t take long for one […]

You Want Me To Do What?

This week I was studying in Exodus.  It has been an amazing journey through this book.  I can only imagine what it was like for the Israelites.  Just to be that involved in the work of God. In Exodus 31, God is giving instructions to the Israelites on building the temple. “See, I have called […]

Who is God?

In my small group today we were talking about different attributes of God.  How do I see God and who is He to me?  In the Old Testament, the Israelites only referred to God by his characteristics… Yaweh-Lord Jehovah Jireh-Provider Elohim-Creator ….And so many more. Our group mentioned traits like God is love, just, faithful, […]

Tell Them to Duck!

When I told my preacher husband that I thought I’d write a short blog with Pastor’s Wives in mind, this was what he said: “Tell them to duck, because the bullets are coming.” And after the laughter stopped, I knew he was right. We’ve had plenty of bullets of all different kinds fired at us […]

Praise for Prayer

I love it when someone tells me that they are praying for me. What a gift that is! It causes me to look for God, to expect Him to move. To go about my day anticipating His goodness and to wonder how He will bring it all about. And it reminds me to be thankful […]

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 […]

Just Scripture

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 […]

You Can Be Anybody You Want

I have heard so many times spoken to me or those around me, as a slogan for a motivational speech or a pep talk from a teacher, a parent’s encouragement to their child and a mantra for this generation: You can be anybody you want to be.  Even just reading those words now may make […]
