I don’t like the season of winter. It gets dark around 5:00 pm. I feel like it’s time to go to bed. And it’s not just because I’m getting older! As far back as I can remember I’ve always disliked it. I need light – light makes me feel so much more alive. It gives … More Is It Berry Pickin’ Time Yet?
It’s been kind of depressing for me to dig down and remember all the yukky stuff I got into during my younger years. But what’s past is past, right? I can’t go back and undo all the things I did, but I can learn to accept them – and hopefully help others get through their … More Humility – Learning The Hard Way
How did this happen? How did I get off-track? Those are just a few of the questions I’ve been asking myself since attending an awesome Christian womens writer’s conference this past weekend. I’m not really sure what the answers are – all I know is that it has happened. The writing of my first book The … More Back To Where I Need To Be
A few weeks ago I got blindsided when we were getting ready to leave church. It had been such a great service, and about 20 people got baptized. My heart was full.

I hate snakes – I mean I really, really do. Just seeing a picture of a snake absolutely freaks me out. People talk about them, and I find myself breaking into a sweat. They terrify me. I was born in Iowa, and our family lived in a cute little house that had a small orchard in … More Crushing Evil

I want to bring up again my favorite apostle, … More Playing The Procrastination Game
I don’t get it. How can people make it through life without having a true and personal relationship with Jesus Christ? The world is rapidly falling further and further into the gutter, and my heart just bleeds for young couples trying to raise their children in a godly manner in these days and times. How … More How Can You Even THINK You Can Make It Without God?

God has … More Here Comes The … What Exactly?
So many people have asked me questions after reading and/or hearing about my book The God of All Comfort. Yes certainly about Jeffrey (our remaining son with cerebral palsy), but also people seem shocked that I used to get in so much trouble back in my early years, but now I appear so “normal.” Huh, … More Me – A Blogger?
The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 1:3–4 that God is the “Father of compassion and the God of all comfort.” Is that really true?
