It's Gonna Be Okay

It's Gonna Be Okay

Sometimes I have struggled with telling my kids, “It’s gonna be okay.”  Because, sometimes, I really don’t know if it’s gonna be okay.  I can’t say, “It’s okay, we won’t ever have to worry about war here.”  Or, “It’s okay, you’re healthy.  If you get sick ...

There's A Better Way to Engage in Political Conversation

As I’m preparing to thoughtfully exercise my right to vote on November 3rd, I’ve found myself discouraged with the dehumanization and divisiveness of our current political climate and weary of the uncivilized discourse bred by our highly polarized system.  Since I don’t love conflict, my initial reaction is to ...

That's Not Fair--Hallelujah!

That's not Fair - Hallelujah

If you spend any time in our home, you will undoubtedly hear the phrase, “That’s not fair!” uttered by our children.  And, if I’m honest, it’s a phrase you would often hear echoed in my heart as well.  We all feel this way at times, because it’s ...

Moving Toward Hope

Moving Toward Hope

I had written something different for my article this month, but the tension over racial injustices in our country after George Floyd’s death has burdened my heart and caused me to think much about my personal responsibility in the journey toward healing.  Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “In ...

Finding Encouragement In Looking Behind and Looking Ahead

The past couple weeks I have felt discouraged by my sin.  How is it that after over 25 years of learning from and growing in the Lord, I’m still struggling with impatience, anxiety, and selfishness?  I could blame it on the circumstances of COVID-19 or my weariness with ...

Certainty in Uncertain Times

Certainty in Uncertain Times COVID-19

I have heard the phrase “uncertain times” more than I can count lately and have probably used the phrase myself a time or two.  But, in truth, aren’t all our days uncertain? At least uncertain to us? How are these times any more uncertain than the months or days ...

The Antidote for Discontentment

The Antidote for Discontentment

After several days of feeling melancholy, discontent, and in a generally “complainy” mood, I decided I needed something to help kick start me back into the joy and delight I know is daily available to me in Christ.  So, I decided to listen to the audiobook One Thousand Gifts ...

Freed to Bring Freedom

Harriet Praying from the movie Harriet

On our flight to Minnesota for a pastor’s conference last week, Luke and I had the joy of watching Harriet--a new movie based on the life of Harriet Tubman.  By the Lord’s power and protection, Harriet not only escaped from slavery but quickly networked with the Underground Railroad ...
