    Laying Aside the Weight

    What do you do when you feel wounded by people who don’t even seem to care? What do you do when it seems like those people are going on just fine while you cry, pace the floor and desperately seek a solution? I’ve been walking with the Lord long enough to know that when I’ve been driven to my knees in searing soul-pain, I better make good use of that time on my knees. When I was on my knees, crying and writing in my journal, I heard the Lord say, “Lay it down.”

  • Laying Aside the Weight: 3 Steps to throwing off habits and thought patterns that are holding you back

    “God created everything and has given us the freedom to enjoy all that He created.

  • What’s Love Got to Do With It?: Thoughts on racism in light of the George Floyd killing

    What’s love got to do with it? These days we’re hearing a lot from the news outlets about the horrors of racism played out in the worst ways – before our very eyes.  And while I hate the fact that innocent men (and women) have died at the hands of bigots, I am grateful that […]

    “Grace, grace to it!”: a YouTube message

    A couple of weeks ago, I shared the message below with our congregation.  Many people have since approached me to tell me that they were encouraged and applied the word immediately to their lives.  That, of course, is the best news I could ever hear! Are you in a season that seems impossible? Are you […]

  • Girlfriends: For better or worse

    When I was in sixth grade, I was bullied all year by two girls in my class. I know that in this day and age of Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter, bullying has gone to new levels of cruelty that I doubt I could have survived. I barely survived the one year of torment I endured […]

  • Summer thunderstorm deconstructed: The beauty & power of the storm that came and went

    I love a summer thunderstorm. I love the humidity that fills the air, the roll of thunder in the distance, the flashes of lightening that streak across the sky and the sound of crickets chirping invisibly in the twilight.
