Welcome!

Hello, friend, and welcome! I am so glad you're here! One day after teaching a Women's Bible Study, a woman approached me and said, "This might sound weird, but can we be friends?" I actually didn't think it was weird at all; I had wanted to be her friend as well! Soon thereafter we met for coffee and shared our stories: our testimonies of coming to know the Lord, what He has done in our lives...

He is Faithful

“It was just after midnight, after the changing of the guard, when Gideon and the 100 men with him reached the edge of the Midianite camp. Suddenly, they blew the rams’ horns and broke their clay jars…They held the blazing torches in their left hands and the horns in their right hands, and they all shouted, ‘A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!’”  (Judges 7:19-20) You know the story: the...

Heavenly Hope

Heavenly Hope

Have you ever noticed that hope placed in people, circumstances, or other earthly things quite often lead to frustration, agitation, and disappointment, making it hard to love those who let us down or continue to do good in those situations that led to heartbreak? I have.  And I think that’s why one little verse found in Colossians never ceases to challenge me:  where, truly, is my...

You Are Not Alone

You Are Not Alone

If you feel as though you’re the “only one” - in whatever the situation may be, remember that as you walk with your God, you, like Noah, are never alone.  (Genesis 6:9) Nor...

New Year’s Reflections

New Year’s Reflections

Last night as the remaining Christmas lights twinkled, the laughter rung through the house and the excitement of a new year was palpable.  Today all of that has faded as quickly as the sparklers that were waved around at midnight. The sky is cloudy.  The rain is falling.  And there is gloominess not just outside the homes but in many hearts as well.  No, nothing has changed...

A Happy New Year

A Happy New Year

A prayer.  A praise.  A promise.  And a hope. As we close out the year, many are closing out their reading plans for 2021. From the final chapters of the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs, we are given a prayer, a praise, a promise and a hope as we head into 2022: First, a promise (or a warning): “The Lord of Heaven’s Armies says, ‘The day of judgement is coming,...

Where Are You Planted?

Where Are You Planted?

For the one praying, hoping, or anticipating 2022 will be a year of growth, change, or fruitfulness: may I encourage you to consider where you are planted? “Oh the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers.But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night.  They are like trees planted along the...
