Why I’ll Never Forget

We all have a 9-11 story to tell. Whether we lived through it, watched from a distance, or are too young to remember it, September 11, 2001 changed all of our lives and so much of life as we knew it would never be the same. It was, and in many ways still is, the…

Living Life Wholeheartedly

I am so excited to be writing on my blog again. Blogging was a regular outlet for me for many years, but after having three babies in three years I lost the time (and brainpower) to keep up with writing things regularly. In July, my baby turned five and it was as if I could…

Wild At Heart 

“We cannot escape the law that would persuade all things to remain wild or to return to a wild state after a period of cultivation. What is true of the field is true also of the soul if we are but wise enough to see it.” A.W. Tozer, “The Root of the Righteous” After a…

God Operates In The Unexpected

Rarely does God work in ways in which we expect that he will. Even the non-religious among us may admit to believing that God does indeed work in “mysterious ways.” From Genesis to Revelation we see clearly (thanks to hindsight) that God pretty much always works in the most unexpected ways. He told Abraham he…

And I Ran

Forrest Gump: That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d run to the end of town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d just run across Greenbow County. And…

Images of Easter

I put together this video today to honor Christ.  Last year I traveled to Israel and had the chance to visit all the Holy Sites, and this video shows many of the sites we saw in Jerusalem directly related to Easter.  You will see real live photos of the Jerusalem skyline, the Garden of Gethsemane…

Run With Confidence

“I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.” ~Eric Liddell, Chariots of Fire Why did Chariots of Fire win 4 Oscars, another 12 wins & 15 nominations? Because we all have that something, that one thing that makes us stand out…

More than Conquerors

Christ follower, Do you believe you are a Conqueror?  And if that, do you believe you are MORE THAN a Conqueror? Or are you being conquered?  Conquered by any number of joy limiting, life debilitating things or circumstances? The Christ follower, by the power of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, is MORE THAN a…

The Night

I am afraid of the night.  There.  I said it.  I have always been afraid of the night, ever since I was small.  I think being afraid of the dark is a bit different than being afraid of the night.  Ive been in dark places and felt no fear, its when the sun goes down…

Extravagant Love

At our wedding, my good friend Kathy and her husband Ben sang a song during our time of communion called “Your Love is Extravagant” by Darrell Evans. I first discovered this song back in the late 90s when I attended a Passion Conference and picked up a journal called “Thirsty” which was a devotional guide…
