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 ...

My Verse for 2020

1 Colossians: 9-14  My Verse for 2020

 

I am not one to do New Year’s resolutions, set goals, or lay out life plans.  I had heard of people choosing Bible verses or other mantras to help set a focus for their year.  This sounded interesting and more doable than goals or resolutions but still ...

Thankful for My Homeland (a.k.a. Heaven)

Thankful for My Homeland (aka Heaven)

As Thanksgiving approaches, I wanted to reflect on something for which I am exceedingly grateful—my homeland (a.k.a Heaven)!! Rarely a day passes now that I don’t think to myself, “I can’t wait for heaven!” This was not always the case.  I was excited about the promise ...

A couple of weeks ago, we visited our friends on the Mountain Home Air Force Base to begin a Bible study with a few of their military friends and neighbors.  I had never been on a base before and enjoyed seeing and learning more about life there from those ...

New Rhythm With Less Technology

As the lazy, less structured days of summer give way to a fuller and more bustling fall schedule, Luke and I have been putting some thought into how we want this new “school year” rhythm to look for our family.  Among other questions we’ve wrestled with, we have wondered ...

No Plan B

I am a planner.  I almost always have a Plan A, and I set my mind toward achieving it.  Often, I will also think up a Plan B or even a Plan C, although disappointment, frustration, and occasional child-like tantrums sometimes ensue if I am forced to move ...
