The Voices in Your Head

Remember this little saying from elementary school? “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” We chanted it and thought it was funny, but truthfully, we didn’t have a clue what it meant.  We just liked it ‘cause it rhymed!  And it seemed like a good thing to shoot back, […]

The Search Party

A few weeks ago, Mistie Osterhouse asked me to play with her and a few other musicians at the Gateway House of prayer on a Saturday night. It had been a while since I last picked up my trusty Fender Telecaster, so I needed to replace the strings. I knew I bought five sets of […]

From the Rooftops

My husband Donnie is a contractor and early in his career, he replaced a lot of roofs. Roofing is a tough job. Although it is good money, it’s dirty, unpleasant work. It’s risky because of sudden rain storms and dangerous because of the heat or risk of falling. But my young, strong husband loved standing […]

     A.W. Tozer wrote, “It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until He has hurt him deeply.” Those are difficult words to read and harder to comprehend. Honestly, we don’t want them to be true. But they are. At least that’s been my experience.      My first significant memory of trauma and […]

Here and There

“From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!” Dr. Suess penned a lot of clever lines such as the one above, but while his books are great fun to read, they cannot always be universally applied.  I think we can all agree that sometimes in life, funny things are definitely NOT […]

Invincible Weaklings

I remember the day so very well. It was Sunday, July 4th, 1977, the morning I was asked by my pastor to fill in for him while he was away for the weekend. He knew I was sensing a call into the ministry and wanted to give me my first opportunity to stand in the […]

I Belong

Mom was browsing through the clothing store seeing what bargains she could find. I was 5 years old, growing more bored and tired by the minute. I leaned my head against her and she put her hand on my head lovingly caressing my hair. After a bit I looked up, and to my horror, I […]

Loving Life Is Worth the Risk

     Loss. We are all acquainted with it, and it never feels good, does it? We feel the pain of the loss of a job, health, and financial security, to name a few. As a pastor for nearly forty years, I have had people leave the church, and, regardless of how loving or contentious the […]

Leaning Forward

I woke up on my 49th birthday with a Bible verse immediately encompassing my thoughts, really just the first phrase of a verse.  I lay in bed and pondered it for a moment. “Ask and it will be given to you …” (Matthew 7:7). I felt the Lord was coaxing me to take it to […]

Uncertain Future

People like to prognosticate, meaning we like to think we can predict the future of our lives with a degree of accuracy and certainty. The disappointing truth is that we can’t. In a few weeks we will have a groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil give us a prediction as to whether or not winter will stick […]
