“Now there was a man in Jerusalem who was called Simeon…He was waiting for the consolation of Israel.” Mary, a new mother, full of pride and awe, carries the infant Jesus into the temple courts. Joseph has just spent a few of their meager coins on the required turtle doves to be sacrificed for their […]


Time for Patience

“with patience, bearing with one another in love…” Eph. 4:2   “Come right now!” She shrieks, motioning frantically with her hands. “We don’t’ have time for this!” He rises, from tying his shoe and slowly walks toward her, swinging his arms nonchalantly. She glances at the “Departures” screen, then at her watch, then back at […]

Ahh….my favorite holiday is just around the corner! I wait all year for this day. As a child my love for Thanksgiving was born. Our American History teacher brought to life the struggles of our pioneering forefathers, who through toil and loss, found great hope in the God they followed. The stories of their first […]

Last week at an end-of-season volleyball social, my friend leaned over and said to me, “Do you know 93.3 is playing Christmas music nonstop already?” “What!?” I exclaimed.  “Now I love Christmas, but that seems excessive!” Then I told her how as I had driven to the event I had seen a Christmas tree in […]

God Loves me So Much

24th October 2017 | 0 Comments

During this past year, God has challenged me to pray for more and to live like I really believe He is good, that he delights to delight his children. It’s something I have hesitated to write about and am even cautious in what I say about, because I don’t want to give the false impression […]


Faith Comes by Hearing

Almost two years ago, I got to work with a team of Banjara people in beginning the translation of God’s Word into their heart language. VanKenna, a young man in the group, had come against the wishes of his family. Indeed he was an outcast in his community ever since becoming a Christian. His father […]


Weak Faith, Powerful Answers

“God,” I whispered as I finished packing my carry-on for my trip to Florida. “It’d sure be nice if someone would just give me a wad of spending money for my time in Florida.” I chuckled to myself as I finished. Where did that come from? I wondered. I’m going to Florida to work at […]


“Pendiente”
