Rest for the Weary

Rest for the Weary

I’ve been debating for several days on what topic to write about this month. My brain has been overworked with additional articles, guest posts, etc. that I’ve written this month in conjunction with my newest book release. Today it seems appropriate to touch on the topic of rest. Rest sounds especially nice at the moment […]

When Fear Attacks

When Fear Attacks

Recently, I’ve been doing a Bible study from a group on Fear and Anxiety. Let me tell you it has hit home so much. I suffer at times from anxiety and panic attacks. Not as bad as they use to be, but still at times it’s there. Sometimes, it feels like someone has grabbed me […]

What Does It Really Mean To “Receive” Jesus?

What Does It Really Mean To “Receive” Jesus?

When I was a little girl, I attended an after school Bible club across the street.  One day, as the program was ending, the leader told all of the kids to line up to pray with her and ask Jesus into our hearts.  Since it appeared that we weren’t going to go home for dinner […]

Making It Through Rough Times

Making It Through Rough Times

  These last few weeks and if I’m honest last month has been hard. Autism is hard. So hard. Can we just say puberty has hit with the twins? Sometimes, it can be a real struggle. They’ve also been having more seizures from it as well. Three children on the spectrum with tons of stimulation […]

You Are Not Alone

You Are Not Alone

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” -John 14:26 Sometimes I feel alone. Like no one understands the dreams I have, the stresses of my reality, and how I struggle […]

Pumpkin Gospel

Pumpkin Gospel

Who else loves pumpkins? I sure do as do my kids. Each fall I used this to teach my children about the Pumpkin Gospel. Have you heard of this? I heard it from  Liz Curtis Higgs Bible truth: We become a new creation through Jesus and can let His light shine in and through our lives. This […]

The Superhero

The Superhero

These days many lovers of comic book figures rush to the movies in order to frequent yet another Superman or Spiderman sequel, Iron-man or X-men sequel, Wolverine or the most recently eye-popping and box-office drawing Wonder Woman–soon to be a sequel. As I’ve observed these movies I noticed how we’re initially introduced to what seems […]

Eclipse Of The Heart

Eclipse Of The Heart

  On Monday when the eclipse happened it had me thinking of some things. We got about 91% here, so it was a good chunk covered. My kids were super excited about this, okay, well the girls were. My twins didn’t understand what’s going on with them having autism. I explained it best I could […]

Fix Your Eyes on Jesus

Fix Your Eyes on Jesus

I’m doing a Bible study and something struck out at me when we were studying in Matthew 14 28-33. Here’s what it says. 28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward […]

Faith Tested

Faith Tested

  The last few weeks have been a struggle. A big struggle for my family. Faith has been tested. Relationships strained and it all kept piling on. It’s really been that way since Easter. Tough. I’m telling you, like super tough. But, in all of this that has happened God has been there. God has […]

Jehovah Always Has Us on His Mind

Jehovah Always Has Us on His Mind

“Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.” Isaiah 49:15 (KJV) Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers! As we celebrate mothers around the country, I’d like to meditate on Isaiah 49:15 above. After […]

God’s Timing Is Always Best

God’s Timing Is Always Best

We moved across states recently, which I think I mentioned in another post. Let me tell you it wasn’t without some bumps. First we had a month, so that should be enough time, right? We sure thought so. Plus, we were moving back home…to our home state of Indiana. That meant we had family close […]

Praise the Lord

Praise the Lord

“Great is our Lord and mighty in power; His understanding has no limit.” Psalm 147:5 (NIV) Let us reflect this morning on what a mighty God we serve! He is awesome, magnificent, great, wonderful, forgiving, loving, patient, kind, compassionate, merciful, good, and blesses us with all of his wonderful spiritual gifts, fruit of the Spirit, […]

Moving Chaos and God

Moving Chaos and God

  My family is in the middle of an out of state move. Can we say crazy time? Oh, my, yes it sure is. We’ve known for a month for sure and in that time we’ve been purging tons of stuff. I’m sure our trash men just love us. Maybe I should bake them cookies […]

The Fear Of The Lord

The Fear Of The Lord

I started doing a Bible Study this week on Wisdom. It’s with a big ministry. Somethings have stood out to me, that I’ve not seen or thought about before. Crazy, how God does that, right? We at times may want to think we have wisdom and know more than we do.  Sometimes we do and sometimes we don’t. […]

It is not what’s on the outside that matters most…

It is not what’s on the outside that matters most…

It is so hard being a woman, because from the top of our heads to the bottom of our feet there seems to always be something to do. If I am not shaving my legs, I am doing my hair and if I am not putting on make-up I am picking out an outfit. Honestly, […]

Thanksgiving In Your Heart

Thanksgiving In Your Heart

This week in the USA on Thursday is Thanksgiving. I love, love this holiday. Family comes together and sometimes we only see them at this time and at Christmas. The smells and the food. There’s nothing like it. Coming around a fire as family members, a lot of times grandmas are cooking up a storm […]

Living Out Loud

Living Out Loud

I’m sure you know some amazing believers, right? Those people who just live Jesus in their every day lives. I have quite a few of those people in my life. And today, I wanted to highlight a few who are giving up their lives of comfort here in America. Because let’s face it, we do […]
