I want you to be known.
I want you to be seen beyond what you can do.
I want you to believe that others care.
They aren’t bored out of their minds.
They want to know your heart,
Not your shallow disguise.
I want you to know that your needs are not a burden.
You are not an emotionless person.
You are not a brick wall!

Mother’s Day marks a special time to honor motherhood and maternal bonds. When the word “mother” comes to mind, who and what qualities do you think about? I instantly think of my mother-in-law. She lives out the qualities of generosity, long-suffering, strength, and unconditional love. Galatians 5 mentions additional attributes produced by the Holy Spirit....

Talking runs in my blood. I come from a heritage of chatter. At family gatherings, there is seldom a quiet moment – everyone has important words to speak. While my tendency for talking is beneficial in many social settings, I discovered that words can influence, elevate, sting, and even demolish. Scripture references the power of our tongue, warning of its ability to cause...

This year my feelings surprised me when I pulled into my youngest kid's school parking lot. I hadn't driven on that same pavement for about two years, and the last time I drove in I was pulling my oldest son, Will, out of the school because of severe bullying and a threat to his life. Over the summer, I mentioned to my youngest child, Grant, numerous times that I would gladly...
Unprecedented times calls for unprecedented action. There is a great need and we have a great answer. Global Media Outreach recently stated "Covid-19 causes people around the globe to seek spiritual assurance at unprecedented levels." People of God, it's go time!
Pastors and other ministry leaders are feeling the weight of caring for people's souls. So many people are fearful,...

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” He said, “Go and tell . . .” Isaiah 6:8-9
For the past 8 months, God has been speaking the word “GO” into my heart. It seems every time I’ve opened my Bible, that word has jumped out at me....

Grief turns life upside down. Some days it’s hard just to breath. C.S. Lewis, in his book, A Grief Observed, put it quite brilliantly when he said, “For in grief nothing ‘stays put.’ One keeps on emerging from a phase, but it always recurs. Round and round. Everything repeats. Am I going in circles, or dare I hope I am on a spiral? But if a...

Casting Crowns is my go-to when seeking encouraging and inspirational music. The other day I prayed that God would share a song with me that would reset my perspective and attitude after a difficult week.
The first song that played from shuffle mode reminded me of what I call “mentoring moments.” I can recall time and time again what seemed like simple...

Sheep. Lots of sheep. Sheep around every bend. Sheep in every field. So many sheep I could fall asleep counting them all. :) Being from Iowa and used to seeing only cows, I delighted in the landscape of sheep on a trip to Ireland, Scotland and England this past October.
One singular sheep comes to mind. As we nervously drove on the left side of the road, we rounded a bend and there...

Embrace. This word gives me all the yummy feelings. A word associated with many wonderful things, like a physical embrace with another, embracing a beautiful view or a sweet moment in time. When I think of “embrace,” I imagine warmth and happiness. At the root, embrace is about acceptance. When you embrace a person, a view, a situation or circumstance, you accept...
