Not That Way!

After last week’s article Follow Me to The Place I Will Show You, I thought I would tell you of a time I didn’t do what God asked. I hope it will speak to you if you are struggling to say yes. No, that doesn’t make sense. I can’t be hearing you right. I stood…

Follow Me to The Place I Will Show You

I can do that. My husband and I both had the same reaction at the same moment in church. A guest speaker was sharing of a need he had, and the Holy Spirit whispered, “He’s talking to you.” I love when this happens. Holy Spirit talks. We listen. The we listen part is key. So…

Building Hope Together

The sound of women’s laughter sang in harmony with the whirl of their sewing machines. At the end of the day, they would go home with a beautiful quilt top they had created with their own hands. But as wonderful as the new creations were, something much more had taken place. You see, these women…

Paddling Through Knee-Deep Waters

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  Isaiah 43:2 We discovered the Elk River in southern Missouri on our last adventure. Beautiful, clear, and lazy, it is a popular place to take a float trip. How could we resist?…

Road Trip: Delivering the News

If you follow me on social media, you know that with summer and its longer days, the wandering has commenced. My husband and I made our way east via the road less traveled . . . literally. This year, we chose to take The Loneliest Highway across the country to see what we could see….

Hey there! Did Ya Miss Me?

Whew! It’s been a while since I have had time to get over here and post. Have you missed me? I have been traveling (That’s what girls on adventure do. Lol!), making a home in Oklahoma, and even doing a little writing. Over the past few weeks, I have been reformatting the Legacy: Living NOW…

Heart Language

  This weekend more than ever I wish I had the language skills to understand Spanish. We were working in a community in Mexico and many times throughout the day I was asked questions that I could not answer. And even when I kind of got what they were saying to me, I lacked the…

When Helping Hurts

What do you do when helping hurts? I have been faced with that question recently. No matter what I did in the situation, my ‘help’ was just prolonging the hurt. When I considered withholding my help, guilt came, bringing with it a flood of ‘what ifs” to my brain. “What would Jesus do” kept me…

Practicing Small Things

I wondered today, Did I make a difference in the world? I kissed babies, Poured Cheerios, Changed diapers. But did I do anything that made a difference in the world? I hugged tightly, Read words, Sang silly songs. I wonder if those are things that can make any difference the world. What would come from…

First Impressions

“You can’t judge a book by its cover, but it does tell me whether I want to engage it or not,” my sister stated on Facebook the other day. I have no idea what she was referring to, but I have an idea it wasn’t a book. It made me chuckle. I had just had…
