National Prayer Walk Your Neighborhood
May 9th, 2017

Our Promised Land
May 4th, 2017
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the promised land. We talk about it still today, right? We think of the promised land as being a place or a thing. But in fact, our promised land has already com...

Will You Stay Silent?
March 6th, 2017
My Facebook timeline today reminded me of a "memory" from 2014. As I re-read the blog I wrote that day, I wanted to write new words. We have learned so much more about human trafficking in the past th...
One Thing Is Necessary
March 1st, 2017
A season of sitting at the feet of Jesus looks different than our twenty minutes a day with Jesus. God doesn’t want an obliged heart—He wants a willing heart. The forty-six days leading up to Easter...
Shifting the Entertainment Atmosphere

It started several years ago but became much more real as I realized my oldest child was interested in pursuing music. When he was around nine years old, it had become clear that not only had God gif...
Rights vs. the Cross
February 15th, 2017
There is something going on within the Church. I hate to put a name on it because giving it an identity gives it an ability to grow. It’s not something inherently new, but it is so sly and cunning th...

Today marks a new day. Totally unchartered waters. Am I qualified for this? Am I ready for this? We will soon find out. Yes, I am a little afraid, but fear is good...especially when I know that I am ...
Get Rid of the Elephant in the Room
January 13th, 2017
Our first little cottage house didn’t have one, but our second 1960’s house did, as does our current new house. For non-drinkers, it is what I like to call “the elephant in the room.” Wet bars…what...
Mindset of Thanksgiving
November 24th, 2016

Press In Church
November 11th, 2016
My heart is sad today for our country. Politics aside, our nation is hurting. People are anxious, fearful and lashing out. We are not at peace as a nation, but it is possible to be at peace as a pers...
Embrace Your Season
November 3rd, 2016
As I was checking out at the grocery store a couple days ago, the cashier asked me, “So, are you ready for Christmas?” It was November 1st. “Uhhmmmm, no,” I said. Since then, I’ve heard conversations...
