What is keeping you out of the Presence of God?

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 […]

Does the darkness challenge or defeat you?

My teacher challenged me. Do remember when your Sunday School teacher or maybe your children’s church teacher challenged you to memorize God’s word? If you were like most of us that first verse was “Jesus wept.” And probably the second one  was either John 3:16 or Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens […]

Is it really a priority?

Prayer is a responsibility and a privilege. But is it really a priority? How do you make or keep it a priority? I am so thankful to be a child of God. Belonging to God’s family means that I have the privilege of coming boldly into God’s presence. I can open my heart and share […]

Is Anything Too Hard For ME?

Is there anything too hard for God? I am so thankful that the truth is, nothing is too hard for God.

I held Brayden’s hand to keep him safe, but I wanted to put both hands over my ears. Brayden loves trains. And I […]

Inconvenience or Opportunity?

Kids on skateboards reminded me, love is patient

 They were on skateboards… little guys…two of them one was maybe 8 and the other looked to be about 6 years old. It looked like they were mostly talking… but it was where they choose to have their conversation that annoyed me… They were jawing right in the middle of the road. I was in […]

Another Facet of Prayer

Clay toddled away from his dad’s reach as he chased the wagging, furry tail of the neighbor’s golden retriever. But Clay’s curiosity dissipated into fright when the friendly dog greeted Clay with affectionate licks. As Clay backed away the dog nuzzled closer to be petted. Clay turned and ran crying to his daddy.  He buried his […]
