Waiting Well–When the Answer Comes

It was Halloween. I was at my chiropractor’s office and my phone vibrated, signaling an email delivery to my author account. It was an email from

Waiting Well–Commit Thy Works Unto the Lord

I’m curious. As you strive to wait well, do you commit everything you do to God? Do you fully give Him your dreams and plans? Do you hand them over? Or are you like me and want to keep a hand, a finger on…

Waiting Well–Be Faithful Where You Are While You Wait

What are you waiting for? A job or an internship? A child? A spouse? Healing in a broken relationship? A prodigal to come home? An opportunity? A diagnosis? Waiting is not easy. It never has been. I doubt it ever will be. When we…

Waiting Well–It’s Kind of Like Making Bread

  I was getting ready to make bread today and started to laugh. I know, a strange thing to do when getting ready to bake. I laughed because I realized making bread is a metaphor for my current season. Have you heard this statement?…

Ephesians 3:20–Scars That Shine

I apologize this didn’t get out on Saturday as planned. I was blessed to be present with family and friends. To encourage others in need and to be blessed in return. And now back to regular programming 🙂 Have you heard of the Japanese…

My 15 Minutes: Matthew 3:1-12: Religion vs Relationship

Are there any passages of Scripture you come across that slay you? Shread your heart and leave you bare? That so grieve you they propel you to action. Not out of guilt, but out of love. Passion. Urgency. For me, it’s Matthew 7:21. Not…

My 15 Minutes: Matthew 7:24-27: Sunshine and Thunderheads

We had some of the strangest weather yesterday. It started out with a constant misty-drizzle, everything was drippy and dreary. Then a few hours later, the sun came out displaying one of my favorite things: sunshine glittering off raindrops still clinging to the grass…

My 15 Minutes: Matthew 2:1-12: Out of Town Guests

Do you ever read Scripture and have more questions than answers? Sometimes, ideally, the answers you seek are found in other parts of Scripture. Other times, if you’re lucky, a Biblical scholar may have spent months going through dusty old tomes of historical and…

Graduation, New Normals, and Helping Loved Ones When It Hurts
