R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

When someone becomes a Christian, one of the many gifts they receive is that of Priest in the Kingdom of God. For me, as a woman, that sounds and feels a little weird, I'll admit. But, nonetheless, it is true... ...and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory... Continue Reading →

Illuminate.

Know your purpose. Live it out. "We will reflect the glory of God from brown, black and white skin tones. We will stand side-by-side, hand-in-hand as justice is served at last and we finally live fully as brothers and sisters, children of the living God, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. There will be no division, no prejudice, no sense of superiority. Our lights will shine together, uniquely yet the same with God the Father being the eternal source."

On Finding Rest

It was the week of my forty-seventh birthday. I had booked a cabin in the middle of nowhere, on a sheep farm no less. For the first time in my life I would spend my birthday alone. The kids were fine with it. They knew this had simply worked out to be the best block... Continue Reading →

For the first time in several weeks, I felt inspired to sit down and write. The flowers in the South are in full bloom, knockout roses... Continue Reading →

Retreating

It’s been a dream of mine for while, now, to get away to somewhere remote and just write. No noises. No distractions. Just for a couple of days. Because of the sweet generosity of my husband, who gifted me this very thing last Christmas, my bags are packed as I type. As soon as I... Continue Reading →

Endings and Beginnings

I have so much I could say, but it is ten o'clock on Monday evening and this mama is dog-tired. I'll try to keep it short 🙂 My oldest child graduated from high school yesterday. Finis. They say not to blink, and I'm glad I didn't because I watched his life flash before my eyes... Continue Reading →

The Truth about Truth.

How many times have you heard the phrase, “That's my truth” or “Well, I believe...” and cringed? How often do those words feel off, somehow, but you don't know how to articulate why? The church is in trouble, friend. There are so many false gospels, weak Jesuses, and works-based religion disguised as Christianity infiltrating the... Continue Reading →
