Who Do You Think You Are?

  I’m getting ready to get on a plane and head to Kentucky to speak at a women’s event. And a memory slid it’s way into my mind. Remember who you are and whose you are. You are not doing this on your own. See, it was my first large speaking engagement about eighteen years… Read More

I’ve been pondering this verse today: It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery (Galatians 5:1 NIV). Most likely you can’t relate to being a slave, but maybe you can relate to the idea of being held… Read More

The Most Fun I’ve Ever Had in a Restroom

A few weeks ago, I was in the airport, headed to New Jersey. It was a typical rush, rush, rush morning. Grab the bags, trudge through traffic, hunt for a parking space, follow the herd, wade through security, dash to the gate. Folks aren’t usually very friendly in airports. Eyes look straight ahead. Purposed feet… Read More
