First, I want to apologize for not getting this recap of “First Love FITNESS ~ Week Two” written and posted sooner.  Suffice it to say I’ve been busy as a mom.  I imagine other mothers out there understand, but still I’m sorry I didn’t at least get our daily gospel reading schedule posted for you.  I will try to do better in the future, and I thank you for your grace! As you can see, I had a helper at “First Love FITNESS” this pa»

Dear Readers:  This is the first in my new “Good Morning, God” series of prayers.  This prayer is for any mom (or dad) whose child will be undergoing surgery–if that is you, the prayer is for you.  It is specially dedicated to the mothers at CURE hospitals around the world who are hurting emotionally and spiritually because of their child’s condition.  If you know of someone in a similar situation, fearful and in need of God’s str»

Yesterday was an exciting day–the first for “First Love FITNESS,” a 10-week class I’m leading at my church to help women become physically and spiritually fit. It was last winter that God asked me “to share with others” this particular passion of mine (Hebrews 13:16). For months I’ve been praying God would bring whomever He wanted to the class. It was a joy to tell the ladies sitting around me that they are the answers to my prayers»

For this Mother’s Day–and with May 12 & 13 the eighth anniversary of the birth and death of my son Ben–I was all set to write you a note of encouragement, sharing some of the “beauty” that has come from my “ashes” (Isaiah 61:3). I wanted to offer hope to anyone who might be hurting. I wanted those with broken hearts to know that the beautiful promise in Scripture–“Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy”–is tr»

Any fans of Francine Rivers’ Redeeming Love out there?  Yeah, me too this beautiful work of fiction no doubt makes the Top Five of my “all-time favorite books” list.  You may recall the story is based on the book of Hosea in the Bible.  I’m currently reading another book based on Hosea entitled Falling in Love with God by my friend Bob Hostetler.  The content is wonderful, and Bob concludes every chapter with a prayer for us readers»

Just as Emmanuel’s surgery has transformed his life, my week at CURE Kenya has forever changed mine.  I’ve witnessed God’s compassion and love in action as never before.  Love so tangible I sensed Jesus walking through the hospital, standing alongside surgeons operating, sitting with recovering children in their ward.  As on the day of Pentecost when God’s heavenly wind blew through “the whole house,” I can easily imagine the Spiri»

Today I’m especially thankful for friendship and love and migraines and Mary.  Migraines, you might ask?  Yes, I would answer those oppressive, nauseating headaches that make me want to sleep so I can’t feel them–or at least be in a dark room with no sound.  I’m thankful because the last two times I’ve had a migraine, my physical suffering has resulted in blessing. This morning I awoke with a headache.  I still enjoyed my quiet time»

Yesterday it was raining–a somewhat out of the ordinary occurrence here in Colorado Springs.  Moist and verdant, the outside world looked remarkably beautiful and peaceful.  Ever since the wildfires in our city this summer, I view rain as soothing love from heaven.  Our land desperately needed it then.  My soul desperately needed it yesterday. Perhaps you or someone you know is dying for refreshment emotionally, mentally, spiritually or phy»

It’s been my lifelong dream to go on safari in Africa.  But after my amazing week at CURE Kenya, I didn’t know how even the famed Masai Mara could possibly compare.  I had felt God’s Presence and Love so powerfully at the hospital!  It was bittersweet to leave such a meaningful experience and start a new, totally different adventure the same day especially one that wouldn’t be as overtly “Christ-centered,” I thought.  But grateful»
