A Walk Through Philippians, Prayer for Philippi Have you ever been in a painful situation where someone hurt you or let you down? Of course you have. We all have.

A Walk Through Philippians, Part 1: The Back Story Anyone who says, "People don't change," never read the story of Saul/Paul. Originally named Saul, Paul was number one enemy to all Jesus followers. He made it his life's work to seek out and persecute Christians. And, when I say "persecute" I really mean he stoned,... Continue Reading →
Your relationship with God matters. That is why I wrote this journal. It’s all about Him. As Christians our ultimate goal is to have a relationship with Christ, right? That’s what we say in church. It’s what we tell people. But how excited are you about Bible study...really? This isn’t meant to make you feel... Continue Reading →

”When women support other women, incredible things happen.” Unknown I’ve seen this quote in my social media feed...a lot. I bet you have too. And, why not? It’s inspirational. But is it really what women do? We all want to think so. Right? I have seen two very striking examples this week of that not being... Continue Reading →
It's that time again to ditch the New Year's resolutions in favor of One Word to focus on all year long. I've picked my one word for 10 years now and it's helped me to stay focused on what I want to accomplish. For instance, rather than saying, "I want to lose weight," I might... Continue Reading →
We know you all mean well. We know you want to help your loved one, co-worker, or friend who is has a mental disorder such as anxiety or depression, but these words above...they are not only hurtful, they are detrimental to the wellness of the person suffering from these illnesses.
28 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. 2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was...

Let go. Sure enough, as soon as I settle on my One Word for 2018, God decides it's a good time to test me on the art of letting go. I subscribe to the Skinning Artist blog, and last weekend the title of Drew's email was, "Sometimes it's okay to let go..." Ugh. When did He... Continue Reading →
In past years I have had my one little word for the new year come to me by December. Not this year. This year has been a little more labor intensive to find it. I had a handful of words picked out but not one seemed right. Then I saw the Bible verse of Philippians... Continue Reading →
I usually pick one word for the New Year, but lately I have been feeling I need a word for the Christmas season too. Basically, it is because of that over-whelming feeling I get every season. You know that feeling. The one that we feel we have to do it all this year. We have... Continue Reading →

Back in 2010 a book came out called "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp. Maybe you read it too? It was a life changing book, and I don't say that lightly. “I want to see beauty. In the ugly, in the sink, in the suffering, in the daily, in all the days before I die,... Continue Reading →
I've been thinking a lot about transformation lately. Sometimes we can forget who we are, who we once were, or who we wanted to be once upon a time. I think that can happen to anyone but it especially true with mothers. I have been mothering for 15 years now and for all those years... Continue Reading →

Happiness in life is an elusive thing. I can be happy at an event or moment in life, but to sustain that happiness beyond the moment or event is a little harder to do. For most people, happiness is difficult to achieve continuously throughout life. Life is like a rollercoaster, with extreme happiness ups and gut-wrenching... Continue Reading →

When I was 19, a friend killed himself. That day we had a fight. A silly, stupid teenager fight. It meant nothing. In fact, we probably would have been at a party later that weekend laughing about it, hugging it out...instead he killed himself. There was no tomorrow. I use the words "killed himself" rather...
