When the Going Gets Tough…..

…..the Tough dig their heels in deep and pray harder. And that is exactly where Roman and I find ourselves these days: praying a lot harder. “I’m sad.” he lamented over the phone.“Why are you sad?” I asked.“I can’t find a job…..” he said quietly. The past few days have been really hard. Roman had … [Read more…]

Don’t Miss This

The women’s class at my church has been going through a series called “Undercover” by John Bevere. Last night was Week 3, and let me tell you…that stuff hit home hard. The basic theme of this study is submission to authority: authority to those who have been placed over us and submission to the ultimate … [Read more…]

Who’s Mouthpiece are You??

It’s funny how we have so many things that we say but then don’t follow ourselves. “Think before you speak” is one of those statements we make to children, but then ignore ourselves. But let’s take that statement and add a little more and say “Think of who you are speaking for before you speak.” Wait, what? Don’t … [Read more…]

50 Shades of Danger

We’ve all heard the song “Oh be careful little eyes what  you see”. We used to sing it in Sunday School and VBS and all of those other great children’s programs. I even remember singing it during class in first grade. (Note: if I have any really young readers out there, you may want to … [Read more…]

Who I Am

“Remind Me Who I Am” by Jason Gray is one of those songs that I’ve heard a billion time on the radio but never really paid much attention to. Until today. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always thought it was a good song, I just never really paid a whole lot of attention to the … [Read more…]


I generally do not post on Sundays, but I wanted to share some things from this morning while everything is fresh in my mind.First of all, if you are a regular attendee at our church and were not there this morning, you missed a really great service! We missed you a whole lot, and I … [Read more…]

Dear World

Dear World, I believe it is high time we set some things straight. You have been bothering me for quite some time on many different issues, so perhaps if you got to know me better you would leave me alone. If not, I will at least have the comfort of getting this off of my … [Read more…]

Let’s Play The “Thank You” Game

Sometimes, I can’t help but think that most Americans -yes, even the Christian ones- are just spoiled bratts. Ouch. Quite the opening statement, huh? But seriously….we ask God for things all of the time. “Lord, don’t let me be sick with this cold.” “Lord, can you stop the clock so I can sleep a little … [Read more…]

God Loves the Misfits

A big thank you to everyone that wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday. It was a good day. I didn’t really do a whole lot….ran 1.23 miles (yes, the .23 counts!) after work, ate lasagna at my mom’s, watched a movie with my hubby (while Duke barked at the surround sound system), and rode my … [Read more…]

He. Is. Faithful.

Before I say anything else, I want to wish my husband a Happy Two Year Anniversary! Wahoo!!! It has definitely been a great two years, but it has also been difficult with school and our otherwise crazy schedules. But Hallelujah we’re graduated from college now so no more of that stuff going on anymore. I … [Read more…]
