Open Our Eyes

On Monday evenings I gather with a group of ladies for a Bible study and prayer. It is such a sweet time of fellowship with my sisters when we lift each other up, encourage each other, and pray for our nation, our unsaved loved ones, and each other’s needs. The consensus in prayer this past […]

Breaking Free from the Narcissus

There is a story in Greek Mythology about a handsome hunter. This man was so good looking, but apparently lacked integrity in his character. When he came across a stream one day, he saw his own reflection and fell in love with himself. Yes, Narcissus was so smitten with himself, he didn’t need a boo, […]

A Dying Nation

What if the condition of our nation is not the fault of politicians, political parties, China, Russia, Antifa, media, racism, or rigged elections? What if we are the problem? A lot of people quote 2 Chronicles 7:14, but I wonder… Let’s start with verse 13: “If I shut up the heavens so that no rain […]

Resist the Enemy, Not the Storm

Storms in life can feel like you are caught in a rip current; and the current is carrying you away from what is familiar. You may try to hold on to what (or who) is being pulled away, and you panic, setting your focus on the storm rather than the One who controls the storm. Big mistake! You can no more control a storm than you can catch the wind in your hand. But there is One, and only One, who can control the storm and is never caught off guard. You can be sure no storms come unless He permits it.

Guard Your Heart

Guarding your heart; I wonder if we really know what this means. You usually hear people say this when talking to someone about “relationships”.  The conversation goes something like this: “I met someone and I am just not sure….” or “They said they were sorry, but…” To which the well intentioned, but often misinformed person […]

The Problem With Dead Things

(This is a rewrite of an old post I wrote on another blog, but still relevant) I once knew someone who used to carry a corpse around with her. Everywhere she went people would say, “Ew! What is that smell?” “What smell? I don’t smell anything.” She would answer, as she sprayed perfume into the […]

Why I Wrote The Distance

When I first started to write The Distance, I was writing it for the young runaways. My protagonist is a young runaway named Sarah, and I started writing from her perspective, because I wanted the reader to be able to relate to her; to understand her. I also wanted the reader to see how God […]

Celebrating My First Book Release

Join with me on my happy dance. After years of writing, shelfing, re-writing, and shelfing, and rewriting… my book has finally been published! I am thrilled! My prayer is that my story speaks to the heart of the reader and brings healing to those who have been wounded by rejection. Although my story is fiction, […]

Beware of false prophets

A great persecution arose against the church and they were scattered… Those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the Word… And there was great joy in the city! (see Acts 8:1-8) Is persecution a primer for revival? Does it take persecution to shake us out of our comfort zones and complacency? Persecution will expose the […]

The Most Precious of All

I especially appreciate that we celebrate the birth of our Savior at the end of the year. No matter the struggle we may have endured during the fist eleven months, we can end the final month with the reminder that we are never alone, for Emmanuel, God is with us!  Christmas is my favorite time […]
