Living in An Anxious World

Recently, I saw a video on Facebook where Max Lucado was touting his new book Anxious for Nothing that comes out September 12th of this year…love me some Max Lucado and can’t wait to pick up what I’m sure will be a page turner!!!  Enough about my love for all things written by Mr. Lucado…. […]

Why We Can Trust the Bible

Being married to an engineer has taught me that questioning things is not necessarily a bad thing.  (I’m sure he would say it’s taken long enough!!) I don’t typically feel the need to have answers to everything I come into contact with, but I have long since figured out that others do have this prerequisite […]

Finishing Strong

In every game there is a winner and a loser.  (Yes, there can be ties, but I’m a firm believer that a tie is still a loss because no one actually WON.)   And man, it just really stinks to lose!! A perfect example of a disappointing loss is the Seattle Seahawks losing to the New […]

How Much Can One Person Take?

Have you ever found yourself at wits’ end?  Have you felt so depleted and exhausted that you could sleep for years? Have you lacked the energy to do anything but cry out with a big “I can’t do this anymore” but know that you really have no choice but to move forward? YIKES!  Where’s that […]

The Evil in the World

Watching the news is pretty scary these days.  Evil seems to be all around us and maybe even winning several of the battles.  YIKES! However, you do realize that the good guy wins in the end, right? Let me assure you…He does. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning […]

Trust

Trust is a major concern for most people regardless of their relationship status. The fact is that family, friends, spouses, co-workers and neighbors will all fail to reach our expectations at some point and time in our lives.  It is up to us to decide what to do with these letdowns and how they will […]

Telling Our Story

The other day I heard something profound…well, it was to me at least. The message went something like this:  Spreading Christianity isn’t about quoting the Bible, regurgitating a list of rules or even telling someone about what our churches say we should or shouldn’t do; As Christians we should tell others OUR STORY with regards […]

When the Going Gets Tough

When hard times make an appearance in your life, do you: Complain? Hide? Get angry? Retaliate? Calmly evaluate the situation, ask God for guidance and proceed with His Plan? If you picked “e”, you are WAY ahead of the rest of us!!!  Congrats on such maturity, wisdom and self-control!!! However, if you are like the […]

Relying on God

Have you ever noticed how everything always works itself out? For example, that final exam in Calculus when you were a sophomore in college that you fretted about for the entire semester…do you even know what you scored?  Probably not. Or what about that appraisal that came in too high for the house you were […]

My Mom

Mother’s Day means so much more to me than it used to.  One could say now that I’m a mom I understand the work and sacrifice of mothers.  But, I think it’s more because of the situation I’m in with my own mom at this time. My mom has Alzheimer’s. I could really just stop […]
