You would be hard-pressed to find a man in the Bible who had greater faith than good ‘ol Father Abraham. Abraham trusted God would indeed make him the father of many nations despite his old age.

I’ve never really had a heart for missions. Being a missionary was something I never ever wanted to do. I am a high maintenance woman who appreciates the luxuries of the United States way too much to be traipsing all over the world to share God’s word. After all, there is still so much to do here in the United States. But over the last … Continue reading Lord Send Me

How to … Continue reading I Forgot I Knew That Already!
I am supposed to give a short message tonight at church and I have NOTHING; NADA; ZIP! When stuck I often try to determine what is in my heart. What topic, situation, or person can I not get out of my head. Like many of you, ever since Monday evening, I have been thinking about Robin Williams. It seemed wrong somehow to write about him, … Continue reading How do we reach the lost?
Today I sent my oldest daughter off to her last first day of high school. Yes, my baby girl is a senior. It is funny; I thought there would be tears. I thought I would be a basket case. Am I in denial? Am I purposefully trying to down play the significance of this occasion? No, I honestly believe that I am confident in the … Continue reading Ready, Set, Don’t Go
