Great title to start a post, right? Prepare to die. And no, this isn’t a reference to the movie, Princess Bride. We all have one life to live but each life ends the same - in death. We don’t know when our life will be over, when death will knock on the door and decide [...]
Why do we wait? Why do I wait? It is evident that God is at work. He is moving. He is speaking. He is capturing the attention of many. Yet, we wait. Here I go with the “we” stuff again. Let me rephrase that, yet, I wait. Why do I do that? I’ve been asking [...]
True friends are a blessing from God. We need them in our life to speak truth and walk through the valleys.
We are masters of not listening and shutting others off. Let’s determine to listen when others come in love to turn us back towards Christ and away from sin.
Communication is an important aspect of encouraging change in others, and having others encourage change in us. Communication is necessary. Let’s be diligent to improve our skills and function out of a heart of love in order to effect spiritual change in the lives of those we minister to.
There is no other name that contains the power of the name of Jesus. It is the only name that can save us, heal us, and transform us.

Love is a difficult thing, is it not? We use this one word to describe our feelings for everything from peanut butter to our spouse. Is it any wonder that when we read about love in the Scriptures we can’t fully understand it? Think about what the Bible tells us of love: “For God so [...]
No. Homeschooling is not my typical topic of conversation in a blog post. However, with the uncertainty caused by the pandemic, many families are finding themselves trying to make decisions about returning to school, or virtual school. Which, loosely translated, is akin to homeschool. As a mother who has homeschooled for years, I have a [...]
When I was a kid, my friend had a pin she wore that said, “Run for fun.” Snoopy was on it, running. I never understood that... I never thought running was fun. It was hard work. It made me sweat and breathe hard. Nope. Nothing fun about that! However, the results of running were envious. [...]
My family and I have been away on vacation this week. Our favorite place to go gives us ample opportunity to hike and enjoy the serenity of nature.
