When You Long for Something More

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been absent for a few weeks. I’ve been hunkered down working on a new writing project. Would you like a sneak peek?  Here you go.  I was alone, or least I felt that way. Women huddled in happy clusters chatting about first one thing and then the… Read More

Becoming a Woman Who Listens to God

  Today we’re going to do a little something different. Rather than writing a Blog Post, I’m going to share a video lesson from my on-line Bible Study of A Sudden Glory. It’s about 15 minutes long, so grab a cup of coffee and let’s have a chat. For those who are new to my… Read More

I sat on my back porch, wrapped in my fuzzy worn robe—the one that’s twenty years old that I just can’t seem to get rid of.

God’s Valentine to You

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. You knew that. Probably all too well. While it is touted as a day filled with red balloons, boxed-chocolates, Hallmark cards, candlelight dinners and sexy lingerie, it is also a day of disappointment for many because there are no red balloons, boxed chocolates, Hallmark cards, candlelight dinners and sexy lingerie. Here’s… Read More

The Danger of Ingratitude

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise,” (Psalm 100:4). Right in the center of my Bible, I find an invitation into God’s presence. And while there is nowhere we can go away from God’s presence, we can certainly feel distant from Him. In Genesis chapter 2, we read of Adam and Eve’s… Read More
