Life Calling- Part 1

Ever wonder what the future holds for you? Of course you do. Join me for a journey to discovering what Scripture says about life calling and the future.

Jonah and Me

Have you ever said NO to God? I have. Many times, in fact. Fear and lack of bravery holds me back far too often. One time in particular sticks out in my memory as a Jonah experience…here’s what I wrote two years ago about… Continue Reading “Jonah and Me”

Then there’s Jesus

Yesterday morning I was sitting in front of 200 female inmates facilitating a seminar (with my friend, MaryEllen) about Jesus and the Word of God. Many of these women are newly incarcerated. Raw. Emotional. Hopeless. As I looked over the faces of those women… Continue Reading “Then there’s Jesus”

Best. Story. Ever.

If I could paint (which I clearly cannot), the picture I’d make would be like a fairy tale, only better. Full color. Absolutely enchanting. We’ve gotta talk about this guy. Let me set the stage. I was hanging out in the book of Ruth… Continue Reading “Best. Story. Ever.”

The True Gospel

What’s in a Year?

Sitting at the end of 2017 and looking towards the beginning of 2018 gives a unique perspective. One year closing up and another one…foggy in the near distance. What’s in a year? Is it made up of merely hours, days, weeks and months…or is… Continue Reading “What’s in a Year?”

God. With. Us.

The name EMMANUEL. I’ve heard it since I was a toddler in diapers. It always connects me to Christmas…but I don’t think I fully understood what it actually meant until this year. Growing up in a Christian home was a huge blessing and I… Continue Reading “God. With. Us.”

From Wimp to Warrior

Often, I am guilty of looking at people in Scripture as some kind of out-of-this-world picture of perfection. I look at the folks in the Bible as heroes. Super-human. Yet, when I take the time to really read their stories, I see something different…I… Continue Reading “From Wimp to Warrior”
