On This Good Friday

As most of us Christians know and recognize, Good Friday is anything but a good day. Instead, the day we remember every Friday before Easter Sunday was a day of torture and death. It was a day filled with sorrow and despair, doubt and fear. It was a day when everything the followers of Christ […]

Remembrance :: Lent 2015

Remember. This is the word that keeps coming to mind for me this season of Lent. As we are nearing the end of Lent, finding ourselves in the middle of Holy Week, I would like to share with you what I’ve come to find so powerful about remembrance and this command to remember in Scripture. […]

A Different Kind of Bible Study Today

This morning, instead of the usual Bible Study at 9 am, we gathered together an hour later to attend the funeral of a lovely woman who joined us each week to study God’s Word and pray.  I didn’t know her well, but she was a kind, thoughtful, joy-filled woman I was happy to have known. […]

When Work and Family Collide

Book Review: When Work and Family Collide

*This book was previously released as Choosing to Cheat* This is a great, timely book by.  Let’s face it, we live in a society that values productivity above nearly everything else.  Sure, we say we value family, but if most workaholics, er, I mean hard-working people were to develop a flow chart of how they really […]

What Defines What?

Tonight in our Bible Study group, we were talking about trying to achieve a balance between Mary and Martha (Luke 10:38-42)–the balance between being and doing–because, let’s face it, it is a finely tuned balancing act.  We have things to do; we can’t just sit around all day, every day, in our attempts to simply […]

Answering the Call

>I’ve never met a leader who’s not had to count the cost of answering the call. In order to live in the sweet spot of who they are and what God has graced them to be able to do and accomplish, they’ve had to say no to some pretty great opportunities along the way. But […]

Is God Bigger Than Christianity?

>Some would say yes, definitely. Others say no, certainly not. But Christianity is so small, and God is so big. Christianity doesn’t answer all my questions about God. It surely doesn’t solve all my problems and sometimes the religion part of it even creates more hassles than I can even handle. But I do cherish […]

Lent is the journey of repentance, sacrifice, and penitence that culminates in the acceptance and acknowledgment of the Grace of Easter. Lent is about our awareness of sin, identifying with Jesus, and recognizing our need for a Saviour, even today. It […]

A Balancing Act

>As a mostly stay-at-home momma and a very part-time minister, it would seem like I have a lot of free time on my hands. And I kinda do. Kinda. As any stay-at-home parent knows, “free time” has to be filled with pretty mindless, easily interruptible, and quickly picked back up activities. You can’t get into […]

The Holy Spirit — A Merry Maid

> Merry Maids promise to come to your house and spiffy it up for you, maintaining a smile and a cheery disposition. Not unlike the Holy Spirit. Yesterday I imagined God as carrying a broom, a dustpan, and a cleaning caddy complete with a feather duster, rags, and an assortment of sprays and various other […]
