To the Thirsty, Hurting and Needy Soul

At the beginning of this week I shared about my joyful, yet sorrowful Father’s Day. And by the end of the week, I’ve learned of the many sorrows of friends near and far. One dear family received news that could likely change the course of their lives forever. It’s...

When Every Holiday Reminds You of Loss

I never know exactly when it’s going to hit me, but when it does, it seems to come on like daggers piercing my heart. The recent celebration of Father’s Day was a wonderful time of being grateful for and affirming my husband, the father to our two children and the...

That One Time I didn’t Pay It Forward

The other day, I had an experience that has reshaped my preconceived notions of the poor and also increased my awareness of the needs around me. I won’t get into the nitty-gritty of the situation but, in short, I was able to help a family who were clearly in dire need...

5 Reasons I Don’t Share about My Kids’ Faith

I love social media. I post on the big three platforms often and when I have down time, I’ll comment and explore. It’s been a wonderful way to reconnect with old friends, keep my extended family informed about what we are doing, and an unexpected avenue for ministry....
