Do You Observe Lent?

Do You Observe Lent?

I have to say I’m typically not a big crier. I have to admit I do cry at times but perhaps I’m often too stoic. I found myself a few nights ago just needing a good cry. I thought of all the people struggling with loss and in deep grief. Then I thought of those who are...

Loving When It’s Hard

Loving When It’s Hard

My ego almost caused me to walk right past an incredible blessing. There she was, standing down the hallway of the church. Just seeing her there stirred up that red-hot feeling from months ago that made fire run from my gut to my cheeks. You see, I happened to walk in...

Redemptive Love

Redemptive Love

Love You More

As a teacher of language and culture, I think often about how the culture we live in makes us who we are, teaches us what is important, and how that is reflected in our lives through word and action. I don’t think anyone would disagree that our 21st century culture...

Overcoming Fear in Uncertain Times

My son, Ezra, was night fishing on the dock a couple years ago during our annual stay at a lake house. He was 3 years old, and he loved that he could be up late watching the lighted bobbers in the water with his daddy. When it was time to come in, he was walking down...

This month our theme for Lifetime Remedy is renewal. I haven’t always had a word or verse for the year but was encouraged in the last several years by others who have done that. The idea is that it would be a special focus as you read God‘s word and pray and talk with...

Falling in Love with Jesus

Falling in Love with Jesus

Early in January I shared that my focus for this year is to fall madly in love with Jesus. Jesus has been in my heart ever since I can remember. I probably accepted him at Sunday school when I was very young. I feel very lucky to have Christian parents who led the way...

Be All There

Be All There

We often want to be "in the know" with God. It's not easy to walk through difficult seasons or times the destination isn't within our view. We have what Robert Holden labels "destination addiction." He defines destination addiction as "a preoccupation with the idea...

Fan the Flame

Fan the Flame

After the apostle Paul reminds Timothy of the sincere faith he had that was passed down to him from his mother and grandmother, he encourages him in 2 Timothy 1:6-7: “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on...
