Christ in Us..?

I am one of those people that get’s completely stressed out placing my order at restaurants, especially if it’s one I don’t eat at often. No matter how much I’ve thought and planned and prepared, when the waiter looks at me, I have a moment of panic. Did I want Baja ranch, or fiesta ranch, or spicy ranch? Was it chicken fingers, nuggets, or tenders? …

The air was warm and a cool breeze stirred, ushering in the early spring night. Overhead, the sun was just starting to set, casting a pink hue on the world. My thoughts, however, were not as rosy. I walked alone that night; I had left my kiddos tucked in bed, my husband home to take care of them, and I walked… and walked… and prayed. …

Have you ever seen one of those romantic comedies or reality shows where the guy proposes to the girl without even knowing what her answer is going to be?!?! Boggles my mind. Seriously, the… courage/tenacity/gall… gumption, maybe? Whatever it is that propels them forward and causes them to open themselves up in such a vulnerable way is completely baffling to me. When my husband proposed …

I sinned the other day. Of course, I sin a lot, we all do, but this was a different sin. This was not one of my normal, go-to sins. It wasn’t like a little gossip or a tad bit of pride, it was an actual, real sin. The kind of sin that other people do; people who aren’t walking with the Lord, people who aren’t …

There was once a time in my life when I had quiet times every day for an hour or longer. I soaked up the Word and had all the time I wanted to sit and be with God. Birds sang. Sweet smelling breezes filled the air. Cute little mice and other woodland creatures did the chores for me… I kid, I kid… about the animals; …

“You are under no obligation to God,” the speaker’s words rung out through the hotel ballroom. I was surrounded by women, all busily taking notes and listening with rapt attention, but I couldn’t get past that one statement. Without even really knowing why, I suddenly found myself very, very angry. “You are wrong!” I shouted at her in my head. Christ had died for us; …

Welcome

Welcome; I am so glad you are here! This website is the result of years of prayer, waiting, questioning, encouragement, wondering, and more prayer (I clearly don’t move fast!). Now, it is with trembling fingers that I write this. But despite the unknown, I’m moving forward with a confident heart, trusting that the God who saved my soul, restored my heart, and calls me his child will …
