Where is God?

Do you ever wonder where God is when everything around you is burning to the ground? “Uh, hello God, are you there?” Consider this: A stowaway baby, found and adopted into a royal family, everything he needs is provided for him, he grows up with privilege and influence. Then one day he sees how cruelly […]

Life Changes After 40 (Ladies)

I have always loved birthdays, mine, and other peoples. I enjoy buying gifts and celebrating. I never thought about getting “old.” I have a cousin who cries each year. Not me, I was never one to dread growing older. I remember as a child playing house with my baby dolls. My cousin and I spent […]

Pentecost is for ALL Believers

The promise of the Holy Spirit is a gift to ALL believers in Christ. Jesus said, “You will receive power and ability when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be My witnesses (to tell people about Me) both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the ends of […]

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 […]

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 […]
