He is 14 years old, and he stands about 6’2” tall! I don’t have any idea how he became such a giant!… Continue reading The Joys of My Life…

Wanted: The Perfect Man

Every night, my nine-year old daughter prays the same prayer: “Lord, please bring my mom a godly, athletic, sexy, rich, smart, involved man who loves us all very much.” Yes, as a single again, I long for God to bring that man into my life—and my daughter has managed to capture the image of a… Continue reading Wanted: The Perfect Man

She’s Gone Biblical, Again!

My house is THE house in the neighborhood. You know…the one where all of the kids hang out, help themselves in the kitchen, walk in the door without knocking. When I get home from work, I am typically greeted by about five teenage boys shooting hoops in the driveway. I’ve walked in my kitchen expecting… Continue reading She’s Gone Biblical, Again!

Walking by Faith

For we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7) Several months ago, I was reading Mark 9. It contains the story of a man whose son was possessed by a demon. The man came to Jesus begging him to help. He said to Jesus, “If you can do anything, have compassion on us… Continue reading Walking by Faith


God’s Mysterious Ways

God truly works in mysterious ways. As I’ve mentioned before, I love to write. In high school, I was editor of the school yearbook. When I wrote essays for scholarship applications, I always indicated that I wanted to be a writer. In college, I majored in journalism. I am one of those strange students who… Continue reading God’s Mysterious Ways

Picking up the Pieces

In the month of May, Oklahoma was hit—HARD. Every single day, I drive by areas of tornado destruction. On every street, there are piles of trees by the road. Fences are blown down or propped up with pieces of wood. Roofs are covered with tarps. Signs are blown out or down. Trees lay across fences.… Continue reading Picking up the Pieces

Help! Satan lives at my house!

This morning, I was listening to a sermon on spiritual warfare. I suddenly realized that Satan lives in my house! You see, last summer we had a horrible gopher problem. Every morning we would peek out our back door to see three or four new gopher mounds. We googled to find any hints and tips,… Continue reading Help! Satan lives at my house!


Here we go again… #prayforoklahoma

I have lived in Oklahoma most of my life, and there’s only one word to describe the last two weeks: UNBELIEVEABLE! I know I have been on edge since the tornado devastated Moore last week. It’s as if everything in my life is out of whack—the way I eat, exercise, work. I am so distracted,… Continue reading Here we go again… #prayforoklahoma


A Journey of Faith

Shortly after my divorce, I found a plaque that now hangs on my wall. It says, “Faith is not believing that God can. It is knowing that He will.” The more I journey through this phase in my life, the more I come to understand this saying. I have never doubted that God could do… Continue reading A Journey of Faith
