Summer of Change

The end of another summer break has come, and we have delivered our eight-year-old granddaughter, Hero, back to her parents and a new school year. Time does seem to fly away even when you are looking. The good thing is, we have enjoyed every minute of it and made lots of memories. For the past…

Village Life

It’s been several weeks now since we brought Baby J home from the hospital. Life has taken on a rhythm of sorts. We have grown accustomed to disrupted sleep. We have new routines and priorities. It’s incredible how such a small person can impact a household in such a big way. But we were not…

Our Full Life Gets Much Fuller

Life It certainly has a way of surprising us in the most extraordinary ways. As of late, my seems a little topsy-turvy. Just when we think we have things all figured out and set out on the ‘Path of Our Plan,’ that’s when God puts up a detour sign right in the middle of the…

Woo Hoo!

Well, this just happened. The devotional study journal, Legacy: Living NOW for Future Generations, I co-authored with three other great Bible teachers (Beckie Lindsey, Nancy Franklin, and Marie Martinat) has been selected as a finalist for the Selah Award.

A Little Celebration

Ah Ha! I thought cupcakes would get your attention. No recipe here today, but every celebration deserves a little sweetness to go with the joy. Lol! This year has been filled with so many amazing things. One of those things was the opportunity to write alongside some pretty great Bible teachers in Heart Renovation: A…

Winds of Change

When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills. Chinese Proverb Life has changed dramatically over this past year, so I am changing things up at my website as well. I am still very much a girl who loves a good adventure but my life is more than that. It…

When God Became Real

Now, the Word became flesh and took up residence among us. John 1:14a When I was a young woman, I walked away from the church. Maybe it was just the religious part of church I left behind. I just didn’t fit in. Where there should have been acceptance, I received rejection. Where I should have…

Resolve My Life

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Matthew 5:8 The end of every year brings with it a resolve to do better in the next. Better job, better education, better eating, better exercise and better organized seem to top the list of changes that would make life. . .better. And, who…
