I was sure that I’d been hacked. There was no way that could have appeared on my Facebook page…and consequently on several hundred other people’s news feeds.

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 […]

Lessons I Learned From My Purse

By on June 20, 2017 in Christian Life with 2 Comments

In full confession I need to tell you that I don’t actually carry a purse. It’s more like a multifaceted survival kit. It rivals the arsenal for a doomsday-prepper. This purse/tote/bail-out bag is roughly the size of a toddler, potentially should be on wheels, and, as I have discovered, is too large to fit in […]

Life is a strange mix of successes and failures, wins and losses, ups and downs. And human nature tends to shift constantly toward those circumstances, people, hobbies, jobs, etc. that allow us to succeed, because – hey – we all like being winners. I, too, have this urge. But the current season in which I […]

I want to be a God-fearing wife who respects and lovingly submits to her husband. I want to be a mom who shows patience, kindness, and leads her children to be followers of Christ. I want to share the gospel with my neighbors and love others well. I want to spend quality time in the […]
