Walking back from the mailbox last week, I stopped cold in my tracks as I eyed the last envelope in the stack of magazines, junk mail, and bills. I knew what it was before I even opened it; a letter informing me it was time for a mammogram. Instantly my mind raced back exactly five […]

I still remember the week of my wedding. I had just graduated from seminary and needed to move out of student housing. So, Jay, my then-fiancé, moved me into the home he had just rented for us. My family was in town for the wedding, and after an evening in our home of dinner, laughter, […]

If you are a sports fan (or your husband is) you know the importance sports records hold with fans.

On my desk at work sits a stuffed, purple dragon with orange horns and wings. His name is Figment, as in a Figment of your Imagination. He is a Disney-created character that can only be found at Epcot in Walt Disney World. Figment is a favorite of mine and sits on my desk to remind […]

The Secret Lives of Christian Swingers

By on November 15, 2016 in Marriage

A few years ago, the Ashley Madison website made waves through the Christian community.  The site told people that having an affair would, in fact, be good for a marriage rather than harmful.  Most who spoke against it talked about the sometimes-irreparable damage it would cause on marriages.

By on March 31, 2016 in Marriage with 4 Comments

She sat in my office and tearfully told me she was leaving seminary to go fight for her marriage.

The details are not important other than to say it involved adultery, deceit, an unplanned pregnancy, and a wounding that […]

Christmas Dishes and Wishes

By on December 3, 2015 in Holiday with 1 Comment

Christmas dishes. That’s what I wanted – my very own set of Christmas dishes. The pattern I wanted was going to be on sale for an unbelievable price on the day after Thanksgiving…aka “Black Friday.” I talked my mother and my sister-in-law into helping me and we were at the doors of the department store […]
