Happy Mother’s and Other’s Day!–Passing the Torch of our Spiritual Heritage

~ A Little Background ~ On the night of July 19, 64 AD, a year or two before Paul penned this letter from the cold, overcrowded, unsanitary dungeon of a Roman prison, Nero torched Rome. (Presumably to circumvent the Senate's restrictions to clear space for an extensive new palace.) For six day the fire raged,… Continue reading Happy Mother’s and Other’s Day!–Passing the Torch of our Spiritual Heritage

Happy Mother’s and Other’s Day: We NEED Others

I am an only child. I have no sisters to offer as aunts to my children. No brothers to provide as uncles. This fact bothered me greatly while I was growing up. Not having a brother was OK, but what I really wanted a sister. A little girl to grow up with and play with… Continue reading Happy Mother’s and Other’s Day: We NEED Others

My 15 Minutes, My Story

Unmasked: My 10 Mistakes (1-5)

  I wasn’t which category to put this post in: “Life” or “My 15 Minutes.” True, it’s linked to my quiet time but it’s equally linked to my prayer journal and life where the first post, Unmasked, in this duo trio started. So I guess it’s both. Like Unmasked, this post is unfiltered, raw, and… Continue reading Unmasked: My 10 Mistakes (1-5)

Depression, Jesus in Everyday Life, My Story

Switchbacks: Let the Journey Begin

“I feel like I’ve been here before…” No, I wasn’t having an episode of deja-vu, I was hiking switchbacks. It was spring break 2019, and my family and I (sans Camron who was at Iowa State) were in Arizona doing one of our very favorite activities…exploring new territories. After months of frigid temperatures, feet upon… Continue reading Switchbacks: Let the Journey Begin

My 15 Minutes: You Want Me To Do What?!? (Genesis 6)

What’s something God has called you to do? Befriend someone or take a leadership position as a worship or small group leader at church? Serve in the children’s/youth ministry, go on a mission trip, run a marathon, mentor, or join a prison ministry? Or maybe, just maybe, things got crazy and He called you to… Continue reading My 15 Minutes: You Want Me To Do What?!? (Genesis 6)

Comparison, Jesus in Everyday Life, My 15 Minutes

My 15 Minutes: The Tragic Mindset of Comparison (Genesis 4)

Comparing ourselves to others is cancer to our soul. It robs us of ambition and erodes our joy. When we’re consumed with trying to determine how we measure up to those around us, we forget we’re fearfully and wonderfully made in the likeness of God. We forget we’re knit together for a purpose. We forget… Continue reading My 15 Minutes: The Tragic Mindset of Comparison (Genesis 4)
