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 ...

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 ...

The God Who Sees

The God Who Sees

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 ...

Those Darn Mosquitoes

Those Darn Mosquitoes

I have often made the comment, especially while itching around little pink bumps, “What good purpose could God have for mosquitoes?”  Colossians 1:16 reminds me He has indeed created all things for his good purposes, but mosquitoes?  Are you sure?

Corrie Ten Boom asked this same question ...

A Grace Paced Life

I recently finished listening to the audiobook, "Reset: Living a Grace-Paced Life in a Burnout Culture."  Although I feel the Lord has been helping me let go of some of my tendencies to overwork, overschedule, and overcommit, I was convicted that I still need more help in this area ...

Abundant Life

Abundant Life

Spring has sprung and the world around me is teeming with new life, new growth, flowers, sunshine, and sounds of laughter from kids and grownups alike.  As I bask in it,  Jesus’ words from John 10:10 cross my mind, “The thief comes only to steal and kill ...

Our Village by His Grace

Our Village by His Grace

The African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child” is certainly true. In fact, I would say it takes a village to shape and mold us throughout our lives not only in childhood.  I’m grateful for our “village”--the people our God has graciously placed in our ...
