As we all settle into the fullness of the Summer and all it has to offer, I want to encourage you to stop and take inventory of what you are noticing each day. Summer can be a time of rest, a time of refreshing, but also a time of being very busy with all the activities we can choose to engage in. Whether you are getting ready to celebrate our nation’s Independence Day, with picnics, BBQs, time at the lake → Read more

When we need courage – how do we find it? What is it? How do we use it? Being brave and courageous are a part of our Christian walk – as followers of Jesus. Psalm 31:24 says Be strong and let your heart take courage, All you who hope in the LORD. There are times when we do not feel brave, but can “take courage”. I have learned this so many times in my life. I do not have to → Read more
My friends, I am going to peel back the curtain even further for you into my ongoing suffering. I want you to know that I know you suffer, too. It's the way of this world. Something changes when we stop trying to escape the pain and instead, embrace God through the pain. Something beautiful happens to our faith when we stop thinking there is something wrong with God because we experience trouble and instead, invite Him into the center of the storm. → Read more
We get to walk in this season of Resurrection every day, forever. As Easter season has come and gone, we are perhaps apt to forget all that Jesus did and all that we get as a result of His finished work on the Cross. We move from the awe of Holy Week and the reflection of His triumphant entry into the city, fulfilling prophecy before their very eyes to that agony of the Cross and His declaration “It is finished.” → Read more
This seems counterculture, and it is. Submitting to God is the safest place to be. As we submit our “all”, everything we have - our plans, our dreams, our family, our children, our need for safety and security, all things, we can truly be at a place of rest and security like we could never imagine. Let me share more of this concept with you. As I have learned to submit my heart fully to the Father, I have seen → Read more
A dear friend’s son committed suicide a year ago. Since then, she has, understandably, sunk into a deep depression.Until Saturday. What changed?I called her. I remembered her tears. I met her in her suffering.I reminded her that she is more than her suffering.The next day she woke up early! She had a little more spring in her step and hope in her heart. Just a little, but it was enough to get her through another day.Some days, some weeks… some seasons… are just like that.If you’re → Read more
We are in a season as a Church like never before. We have been shut down, masked up, and now there is a growing level of mocking and persecution that is beginning to pick up volume and traction in the media. It is something that I wasn’t thinking I would see in my lifetime. For years I have studied the armor of God in many different Bible studies, word studies and through different author’s perspectives. I have wanted to understand → Read more
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it → Read more
What is it about the turning of the calendar that creates this yearning? What is it in us that desires a reset, a refreshment of our soul so very deeply? A New Year, and a Fresh Start – we turn that calendar page, set up a fresh beginning, and arrive at the New year with anticipation of change, improvement, a freshness that we so desire. Yet, maybe we can’t quite grasp it. What is it about the turning of the → Read more
I am gluten and dairy intolerant. The net result of that is most of the time, while I’ve learned how to eat so that I don’t feel hungry, rarely do I actually feel “full.” Over the years, I have had to help my brain to understand that I don’t need to feel full in order to have eaten enough. It’s been some serious retraining of my brain. I long to feel full. Then, there is Christmas. Full. Full of hope. → Read more
