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. But as we were chatting to a couple people before heading out the door I learned about a woman who had been abandoned … More The Ultimate Day Of Healing
In my last post I wrote about how I know that keeping a Romans 8:28 mindset is so critical to being able to cope with things.

We were both excelling in our job at the pancake house, so the regional manager ended up sending us to Salt Lake City to live for a year to help train some of the staff. … More How Did This Happen?
I have a picture on my home office wall that I absolutely love. It is a picture showing Jesus giving a great big hug to a person who has just entered through the doors of the Heavenlies. It includes a poem written by Beth Stuckwisch (1984 Dicksons) which goes like this: When I come home … More Our Real Home – I Can’t Wait!
