Believe (2020)

2020 is upon us and we are leaving the theme of “Fearless” and starting the theme “Believe” I have stated many times over the past year that I wish I would have called the theme “Fear Less” rather than what I did because I don’t know if I will ever get to the place of being fearless, now I am… Continue reading Believe (2020)

Nothing to See Here

“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.” Philippians 3:13 I was heading home from the eye doctor (I hate saying that part) to pick up my wife from work. A car crossed the centerline and hit me head on. My… Continue reading Nothing to See Here

[be still, be silent]

I read this line in a blog the other day, “Our modern life has been summed up in three words: hurry, worry, and bury.” We are in a society that demands 5G networks, internet access in our parks, and wearing business attire like a badge of honor . We end our days collapsing in bed in total exhaustion. We know… Continue reading [be still, be silent]

I have looked up to Heidi Baker for a long time as she has a heart for kids and a love for Jesus that challenges and encourages my faith daily! As she spoke, she reminded me… Continue reading Open Our Eyes

The Illusion of Control

But what if there was another way? Instead of God-forgetting, it was God-remembering. Remembering who really is in control.

That Inner Monologue

Let me the set the scene for you: Blue lights line the back of the stage. Three spotlights shine on the front of the stage.  It is a packed house. There I am, in the middle of it all with my microphone and a glass of water. I tell my first joke, and the crowd erupts with laughter.  I keep… Continue reading That Inner Monologue

The Wasp Nest

Oh the weather outside is frightful… It’s cold and windy with snow blowing all around, and yet my mind drifts back to the days of summer. Ahhh – the warmth, the breeze, the yard work. Yep, yard work. My husband and I purchased a home a few years ago and I have fallen in love with landscaping and yard work…. Continue reading The Wasp Nest
