Philippians: The Back Story

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 →

Relationship Matters

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 →

One Word (or two) for 2019.

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 →

He is Risen. Happy Easter.

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...

One Word Christmas: Light

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 →

Planning Christmas gifts that are meaningful

Millions of families in Asia are entrenched in poverty, barely scraping by. And here we are, in America, blessed as living in the greatest nation in modern history, with the most advantages and freedom of any country...what will we do with our blessings? "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and... Continue Reading →

Happiness in life is more about who than what

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 →

Those Left Behind After Suicide

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...

Weekend Wandering: My Mountain Fix

There is something very spiritual and healing about being in the mountains. It's the quiet. The exploring God's creation. The smell of the air. "To enjoy nature, is to enjoy God, they are one in the same." -Unknown Last weekend I had the pleasure of spending the day exploring Mt. Evans with a friend and... Continue Reading →

Show kindness even if you’re not feeling it

I always wonder why God loves this planet of humans. Just turn on the TV, hop on the Internet (or drive in rush hour traffic) and you'll see plenty of examples of humans behaving badly, being cruel, inconsiderate, unkind, hateful...not even remotely compassionate. We hear of humans doing compassionate things, say when there is a... Continue Reading →

Weekend Wandering: Feeding Your Creativity

When I was in art school there was this notion about being a starving artist. That to be a "true artist" you have to be broke to create. If you're not struggling, you're not creative. Getting a "real" day job is being a sell-out to your art. Well, since I don't really like eating Ramen... Continue Reading →

Weekend Wandering: Finding the Fruit

Sometimes I am wandering around the blog world and happen upon a writer that just has a way with words. A blogger that says exactly what my heart is feeling at that moment. A blogger who strings words together in a poetic fashion it makes me a bit envious. Like, Fione Lynne. "I'm learning to... Continue Reading →

Where did I go wrong (or They will go their own way, part 2)

When our kids mess up, as mothers it's easy to turn the blame on ourselves. Isn't it? We ask, "Where did I go wrong?" What did I do wrong as a parent? Didn't I teach them right from wrong? What could I have done differently? It's interesting to me that when a teen gets in... Continue Reading →

They will go their own way

Let's just be honest here. We all are freaked out about raising kids. All moms fear messing up our kids big time. Like, they will need therapy big. When my kids were younger, parenting felt tough, but manageable. Daughter has temper-tantrums? There's a book, a blog post, or at least advise from a friend to... Continue Reading →
