And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.

All this week, I’m sharing highlights and insights from our personal journey. Perhaps you’ll find them encouraging. Or maybe a bit challenging. You might even disagree. But however it all goes down, I hope our messiness might help you find your own way home. In my last post, I confessed our family’s visceral (and sinful) need for approval. The moment our house sold, the voices of other people’s expectations immediately began manipulating»

Here I am sitting on our porch, Marie is knitting and I’m doing this note. It’s pouring out, but I’m enjoying so much the sound of the rain on the roof and seeing the drops coming down. I enjoy the porch so much. I remember going over to my Grandfathers house as I was growing up either after school or during the summer, he’d be sitting on his porch rocking back and forth while I sat on the top step waving to all the folks we knew riding by in their car. In those days it would be every other car, now a-days you’d be lucky if you new one or two riding by an ...


Genesis, the first book of the Bible, tells the story of how God created the “heavens and the earth? *1 and the first families that walked the Earth. Adam and Eve, the first humans ever fall to the temptation of sin, thus sin enters the world. Sin is defined as “any act regarded as such a transgression, a willful or deliberate violation of some religious or moral principle" .*2 The world became consumed with sin, so it was time to start over. There was only one man that followed the commands of God and that was Noah. He and his family were spared. Therefore, for 40 ...

As we continue to help people understand the message of Jesus, we find more and more people who feel trapped where they are.  Not trapped as though they are in a physical prison, but rather; trapped that if someone really knew about the stuff going on in life.  Before enjoying what makes us human at the most simple level, we start asking ourselves... Would they even understand?They'd probably make fun of me?They would try to fix me?They just»

There is just too much to say about the feminine tribe. Regardless of whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, working woman, pastor’s wife, single grad student, floral-and-filigree women’s ministry leader or a hear-me-roar feminist rights activist… You are celebrated. Whoever you are, you are beautiful, significant, and empowered because you are made in the image of Your Maker. Here are some of my favorite quotes to commemorat»

I had just gotten home from the gym and was drinking my protein shake in the kitchen when I heard a faint cry. It wasn’t abnormal to hear my dogs voice their desire to emerge from their crates once I arrived home, but something about this cry was different. I went over to let my three darlings out, and when I opened Pebbles’ little door I was shocked to find her unable to use her hind legs and, even worse, panting profusely. I knew she needed»

Evil can show up in really unexpected places. Last weekend we took my daughter to New York City to celebrate her 13th birthday. And while it’s not hard to imagine evil in dark underbelly of Gotham City, we stumbled onto it amidst upbeat show tunes and awe struck theater patrons. We saw Wicked on Broadway. (Spoiler Alert). The “Untold Story of Oz” flips the old film completely on its head. Antagonists are protagonists. Heroes are villains. (»
