Father to the Fatherless
My love, It was a strange feeling to stand in front of hundreds of Father's Day cards knowing I would not be purchasing one for you.  My eyes scanned over the various sections of cards: dad, grandfather, son, son-in-law, husband.  At knee level were brightl...

Love, God
Dear Valentine, I can see when your heart is aching .  I know when you are longing for something.  There are days when you are filled with joy, and there are days when you are feeling despair.  I dance with you on the days when your heart is light.  I cradl...

Are You His Refuge?
As a child, when you heard thunder, what did you do?  Did you run to someone?  Did you hide?  Did you close all the blinds?  Did you turn up the television?  Where was your safe place during the storm? Imagine a time in your life when you were the most scar...

What Do You See?
We look in a mirror every day. We examine our hair, our face, our
bodies and our clothes. Some days we feel confident. Other days we feel
insecure. Some days we know we have purpose and other days we wonder what we're
doing here. For some women, mustering u...

From My Heart
I'm not one to push a product or a website, but this one is very dear to my heart. As you may have read in a previous post , my grandfather passed away nearly 6 months ago after being diagnosed with aggressive pancreatic cancer only two months prior to his ...

"It's Just Church"
We recently celebrated Mother's Day.  It's taken me a few (ok, several) years not to have expectations for this day.  Not that my husband has ever overlooked this day since I first became a mother, but because no matter what he did, I though he could've don...
