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 […]

Suffering to Resurrection

“Everybody wants resurrection, but nobody wants suffering!” I read this quote recently in an article I was reading, and it caused me to stop in my tracks and ponder its truth. What a revolutionary quote, especially for our world today! In the Easter season that we just celebrated, we are reminded overwhelmingly of the suffering […]

Dinosaur Eggs produce Patience!

We are a homeschool family, our weeks are full to bursting with spelling bees, math drills, and geography trivia for fun learning! When our kiddos do really well, we treat them with a few dollars and drive out to our local Dollar General. They get their own little yellow basket and scan the isles for that […]

The Stranger

For the last 9 months, there has been a stranger living with us.  This woman isn’t in our home all the time, but randomly shows up.  She walks in the room and bursts into tears and loses all sense of reality and perspective.   She prefers the AC set on FREEZE. This woman is me.  I […]

Ministering to Women

It wasn’t until just recently that I was ministered to as a woman. I had been ministered to as a child, as a teen, and as a college student, but never as a woman. I didn’t realize how badly I needed to be ministered to as a woman until I felt God convicting me to […]

By Faith, Part 2

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”–Hebrews 11:1 My previous post tackled the definition of faith based on this Scripture.  Faith is substance and evidence.  In a ladies’ Bible study I just finished teaching, we spent 6 weeks unpacking faith.  One Bible story we kept referring to […]

By Faith, part 1

“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen.” Hebrews 11:1 Hebrews is not a book of the Bible that I would suggest to a brand new Christian to dive into and read on their own. It contains some heavy truths and deep theology. It is also written to […]

Does God Give You More Than You Can Handle?

How many of you have heard a sweet, old lady’s voice in the midst of your troubles saying “God won’t give you more than you can handle?”   I have heard that phrase more times than I’d like to say….mostly coming from brothers and sisters in Christ. When I was younger and felt like this […]

Where is the LOVE?

The Way of Love 1 Corinthians 13:1–13 13 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to […]

Fill The Gaps

  Do you find yourself dividing your life into ‘compartments’?  You know – church life, home life, work life?  What about spiritual, physical and emotional?  For some reason we think that these are all separate areas of life, when in reality they are all connected to make “US”. To be the best ME that I […]
