True Story – Sick for 38 years, laying by a pool every single day, waiting for healing and he is asked the question, “Do you want to be well?” (see John 5:1-9)  Duh!  The answer seems obvious to me and the question slightly insulting.  Of course, the poor man wants to be well!  He’s laying by the pool again, waiting

The Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu says, ” the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. ”  It takes great courage to take that first step, to embark on a new adventure where the destination is not guaranteed, but you know what else takes a whole lot of chutzpah?

If I’m being very honest, I often feel unseen…invisible.  As if the only time that anyone really sees me is when they need something or I’ve done something they didn’t like.  How about you?  Do you often wonder if anyone, including God, sees your situation?  Cares about what is happening in your life?   When Hagar ran away from

My boys never had a problem bidding me farewell when I would drop them off for school. Never any crying or clinging but one day my youngest son’s preschool teacher wanted to chat with me regarding him. She said, “You know after you drop Austin off, if there are any other children who are crying [because their parents have

I’m not sure how I got to that point in my life. Maybe you have a that point as well. Even as I sit here, trying to communicate to the countless faceless women who will read this, I wonder how to explain that point in my life.  I’m a stuffer. Anyone out there relate? Let me explain. I hate
