Overcoming an Offense

By on June 27, 2017 in Christian Life with 3 Comments

The last couple of years have been difficult for me, my family, and our ministry.  Our church has experienced an onslaught of attacks (from within and from without), which have caused much heartbreak. During this season, there have been countless opportunities for me to become offended at misunderstood circumstances, deceitful actions of others, and words uttered out […]

This year, my oldest daughter, Makaylan, began kindergarten. I’ve known for a year this day was coming, but I did not anticipate how deeply it would affect both her and me.

As I sat across from her, I could see the sadness in her eyes. And then the confession: “Amanda, my boyfriend and I went ‘too far’… again!!” My first reaction was to blame the guy for putting pressure on her, but then the truth came out….She was the one who started the physical relationship, and […]

How That Sin Issue Looks a Lot Like a Pile of Laundry

By on July 14, 2016 in Christian Life with 3 Comments

In talking with women, I have discovered there is one of two things that they despise: laundry or dishes. For me, it is laundry. I can stand and wash every dish in the house. I would even say it’s a de-stressor. But, give me one towel to fold, and it may lay there for an […]

My sister-in-love, a preschool teacher, decided to forgo the usual gifts of princesses, baby dolls, or crafts, and instead get Makaylan a Live Butterfly Adventure. A few days later we received a package with six tiny caterpillars inside. I, for the first time, was able to obverse – […]

“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.” […]
