• The Gift of Time

    I’d like to repost this because many of you haven’t seen it before.  It was written back in 2009…   Talk about gifts that are wrapped in ugly packaging… I have come to realize that Almighty God has indeed blessed me with the gift of time. When it happened I viewed this illness as a tragedy […]

  • Encourage – My Story

    Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. (Romans 12:15) There is a unique culture, a new medium that someone at some time for some reason named the ‘internet’. It is a new way of communicating; a place where you have a voice and your audience is the world. Those Christians who navigate […]

  • Learning the Discipline of Faith

    Hey friends, I’m thinking that it’s about time to sit down and write something new for you to read  It’s been some time since I last posted anything and you’ve probably been wondering what’s going on.  When I first started blogging, I posted almost every day.  And I feel that God now has me in […]

  • I Don’t Know This Chick Anymore

    I had just finished re-reading the first two volumes of my Memoir, when immediately I was grasped with an urgency to start working on number three.  I realize that I need to tell you… when my first two books were written, I was still out in the world – able to physically get around so […]

  • The Christian Wilderness

    “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”  Isaiah 55: 9   The Christian Wilderness.  How shall I start to explain this?  The best way I can describe it is that you are confronted with an anti-you barrier, and in […]

  • Envy – The Suffering of the Righteous and the Success of Sinners

    Envy.  Sometimes it’s hard not to be envious… especially when it seems like you’re stuck sitting on the sidelines watching everyone else’s life progressing… and you are just existing day after day, month after month, and monotonous year after year.  You may think that you’re current predicament is justification for envious thoughts.  But I’m here […]

  • When Should I Stop Praying for Healing?

    When should I stop praying for healing?  Good question.  This is an inquiry asked of me a few days ago.  It’s been twelve years this past June that I’ve been in the trenches of suffering, and here is my reply.  IT DEPENDS.  It depends on where your heart is with God.  It depends on trust.  […]

  • After the Locusts Have Eaten

    “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten–the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm – my great army that I sent among you.”  Joel 2: 25   It’s a fact, a sad fact, that all of us have times of scarcity and famine.  But the […]

  • Waiting (is the hardest part)

    Do you remember Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers? Back in the eighties, they were one of my favorite bands. Do you remember a song called “The Waiting is the Hardest Part”… I think that was the title. As I’m thinking about what I want to write, the words and the melody keep playing over and […]

  • My Beginning

    Is life overcoming you…or are you overcoming life? That question seemed like a no brain-er to answer eight years ago.   You see, I used to be one of the most conceited, confident, prideful, self-centered girls walking around. Everything was all about me, me and me. I knew I was one of the “beautiful” people, […]
