Problem solving is no problem when the situation is clear cut and dry. But most problems come with a cloud of fog that seems to envelope the whole situation. So, how do you navigate through difficult situations when you can’t see clearly? When the coffee was ready, I grabbed a cup and headed for […]
Made in His Image.
In this podcast I want to remind you of your intrinsic value to God and why that should matter to you.
In this podcast I want to share with you how the love of God carried a woman through the horrors of Germany’s worst death camp, Ravensbruck, during the holocaust. I want to share a truth with you that she shared around the world after her release. Her story was indeed a horror story of epic […]
Shut the door. I know first hand what happens when you leave the door open. I was running late, which I do more often than I should. I had to load the car, feed the dog, put my shoes on (Yes, I was barefooted which makes this story even worse.), and then I would be […]
Maybe you can think of a dozen reasons that fear shouldn’t hang out at your house, but I can tell you one great, big, huge, hairy reason it can’t stay at my house. Before I share this 1 reason you can’t let fear stay, let me tell you how I learned that lesson. I […]
I believe…. OK…I’m waiting… and just what is it that you believe? Of course we believe…everyone believes something. What we believe determines our trajectory and destination.

Fear is a big problem for so many people. We try to minimize it with safe labels, numb it, even squeeze it into a dark closest so it can’t access our minds and hearts. But Isaiah 41:10 exposes it with the light of God’s presence and power which frees us and enables us to overcome […]
I absolutely love the harvest season. That’s easy for me to say because I’m not the one doing the work of harvesting. I just eat it! There are some things that you can’t grow for me. There are things you can share with me, but I am responsible for my harvest. If I want […]
How do you keep from striking out? While the answer may seem obvious, let’s talk about George Herman Ruth first. He was born in 1895. Some say he learned to play ball at St. Mary’s Reformatory/Orphanage and other stories say he ended up at St. Mary’s because of all the windows he broke playing stickball in […]
Have you ever experienced an electric fence? When my oldest granddaughter, Karyn, was a baby, I was invited to speak at a church in a rural community. They booked a room for me in a gorgeous bed and breakfast in the middle of farmland. The land adjacent to the house was a pasture with cows […]
