Safe in the Storm

I cling to the cross when the storms roll in and the dark clouds try to distort my vision. The work Christ did and completed on the cross is my anchor. When the waves tempt me to row in the opposite direction, Jesus calls me to the stern and He tells me to rest. I […]

Choose Life

At the risk of being vulnerable and judged, I am going to share something personal and trust God will use this part of my testimony to help someone; even if it is only one person. I have always tried to be true and honest with my writing. My heart is to reach and minister to […]

Beauty for Ashes

Shame does something to a person. It produces a judgement of guilt and unrelenting condemnation. Shame distorts a person. It suffocates the future and feeds on regret. The showering of fear hinders growth and stifles a person from becoming who they were created to be. When I think of people in the Bible who overcame […]

The Most Unusual Place: a short story

Her reflection in the mirror showed a tired woman. Her skin was blotchy, pale and discolored with dark circles under her eyes; dull brown hair replaced a once thick and glowing crown.

Me, JJ, & Jesus

    The best gift I ever received is JJ; my little four legged buddy. He was just a puppy, barely able to climb a curve, when he moved into our hearts. He is three years old now; I think that is 21 in dog years. I was never really a fan of small dogs; […]

Real Love, His Love

There is comfort in love; safety and freedom. What freedom and security to be completely vulnerable and naked, knowing you are loved and cared for, no matter the flaws, because your Beloved loves you unconditionally. Such love is willing to lay His life down for you, defend you, hold you, care for the things you […]

He Is All You Need

Sometimes people come into your life and you love them… but, they don’t don’t. Sometimes you see what could be… but, they can’t. And you are tempted to hold on a little longer, wait and see, because it is hard to let go. But, there comes a time when you have to just listen and […]

Why Forgive?

This is what forgiveness does… … it frees us! When we can see the offender as someone trapped in their own nightmare, a victim (because without Christ that is what we are) then we have better understanding. When we suffer for Christ, we suffer as Christ did, for a people who had no light or […]
