The God of All Nations

As I spent time in Jeremiah this week, the given chapters brought me back to a place of private school education. The chapters reminded me of those we used to read in Bible class. Chapters filled with war and destruction. Chapters about ancient civilizations and primal rulers. Chapters I would skim over with nothing but … More The God of All Nations

A Bold Question

Have you ever been lost? I mean like really lost in a place you don’t know. Think back to what it felt like? Were you scared, nervous, frustrated, feeling helpless? Did you ask for directions? Did you actually stop and seek out help to find your way to your destination? Remember when we used to … More A Bold Question

Sweet Suffering

It is easy to get lost and confused when I try to read any of the Major Prophets and so my tendency is to avoid those books. However, … More A Difficult Calling

Abundant Generosity

My outward love language is the giving of gifts. I absolutely love to give gifts – from wrapped gifts or sending care packages in the mail to taking food to neighbors to just giving my time to others. I don’t say this to boast, but more to share a little of who I am. Anyone … More Abundant Generosity
