Have you ever been at church and heard a testimony from someone that makes you think: ‘what am I doing with my life?’ I recently attended the Wisconsin District Summit, a gathering of Assemblies of God ministers from Wisconsin.  During the missions portion of the summit, they spotlighted a little girl named Addy. She was probably 4 or 5 years… Continue reading Advancing

U.S. Grant and the Kingdom of God

“History repeats itself” was a quote some attribute to Rufus Historie in 1553.  I mean he had just witnessed the Protestant Reformation resulting in the upheaval of many nations.  What else could possibly happen that hasn’t happened before?  Unless he believed in reincarnation and was stating that Historie would repeat himself and we lost the meaning of his words throughout… Continue reading U.S. Grant and the Kingdom of God

Fix your eyes

When I was in high school I was on our dance team. I can still remember watching them as a little girl and wanting to be a part of that team. They were the best in the state and won invitations to the national competition every year. So my sophomore year I tried out and was granted one of the few open places on the team. I can still… Continue reading Fix your eyes

Burn Out

Why does it seem there’s never any time these days?   I look at my schedule and it’s packed.  I talk to my students and they’re off to volleyball practice, fine arts, dance and then homework.  It’s a full time job just getting your kid to where they need to be on time!   I “googled” the question ‘what causes… Continue reading Burn Out

Take the plunge!

Have you ever been down a water slide? As a kid I LOVED going down water slides and taking our annual trip to Noah’s Ark in the Dells. I was never a big fan of roller coasters, but water slides were a different story! First of all, I didn’t get nauseous on the water slides like I do on roller… Continue reading Take the plunge!

Noah Who?

  In case you have been living under a rock for the past three months to avoid this thing called the “Polar Vortex” you may not have heard that there is a movie that is in theaters called Noah.  It has the star power of director Darren Aronofsky (maker of the game show “Super Market Sweep) and actor Russell Crowe… Continue reading Noah Who?
