A Christmas Prayer

I wrote this years ago and also posted it last year on my blog. Seems like a good time to post it again. May you have a blessed and wonder-filled Christmas! Dear Father,  Thank You for the priceless gift of Your Son. This Christmas I pray that the miracle of the Incarnation—that God became flesh … More A Christmas Prayer

A Christmas Prayer

  Dear Father,   Thank You for the priceless gift of Your Son. This Christmas I pray that the miracle of the Incarnation—that God became flesh and dwelt among us—will be birthed anew in my heart.

Monday Morning Musings: Into the Quiet

It’s been quiet lately. It’s been quiet in my soul. God has been quiet too. And I’m okay with that. Oh don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of noise “out there.” The world has been anything but quiet.

Pieces of My Heart

So I worked on this little project before Christmas and I sort of forgot to tell anyone about it. Basically, I’ve published another book called Pieces of My Heart.

My Heart to Yours

I’ve been trying too hard lately. It’s kind of funny, really, because the concepts of rest and abiding in Christ are such deeply rooted core values for me. I always want to be led by his presence.

Getting Through It: Tips for Surviving the “Most Wonderful” Time of the Year

It’s the most wonderful time of year! Right? For some it is, but for others … Well, not so much. For some people the holidays are hard–sometimes really hard. The reasons are varied, but people without strong ties to a supportive community (whether family, friends or both) that they actually “do life” with are especially vulnerable.
