It's Like a Honeymoon but with 60,000 Brand New Love-of-my-Lifes
Love of my Lifes?  Is 'lifes' a word?  Or should it be lives?  That doesn't seem right.  I only have one life, but a whole village of new loves. Loves of my Life.   That's it. I have watched a bajillion videos of people in Togo.  Right now I think they are ...

Power and Love in the Face of Fear
Yesterday was a terrible day. I've had just those 5 words on the page since 8 am this morning.  I have so much to say and yet I don't know what to say.  It feels like we said it all the last time.  Because sadly, there was a last time.  And a time before th...

**
It's hard for me, being the southern Bible Belt girl that I am, to imagine sharing the Gospel in places that have no reference point for it in syntax or in thought process.  Here in NC, even if a person doesn't believe, they know the lingo. They can fake t...

Folks, I'm going to Africa!
40 days.  In 40 days, I'm going to Africa, to the tiny country of Togo with two other people as some of the first Christian missionaries to serve the unreached, unengaged Akaselem people of Tchamba. This is my first mission trip. There is only one word for ...

One night last summer, my son brought me a present. The three of us had been hanging out by the campfire until well after bedtime, listening to crickets and gazing at stars.  We were three peas in a pod, growing in the red clay of our backyard, watered by p...

The Train Wreck Perspective
There are times when I can just feel other parents disapproval at the way I parent my child.  It burns right through me.  Stabs me in the back sometimes, but no matter.  I have been tasked with raising this child to be a Godly man and that is what I will do...

The Good Soil
I’ve wrecked my car 3 times in the past 6 months.   In my own driveway.   Twice I hit one car with the other and once I knocked over a brick retaining wall.   All because I can’t get my mind on what I’m doing. I can’t remember things anymore either.  I miss...

I Feared Anyway
Supposedly God says “Do not fear” 365 times in the Bible, once for every day of the year. I feared anyway. My husband just took the shortest Emmaus Walk in the history of the world- 22 hours from start to finish.  The Emmaus Walk, if you don’t know, is a Ch...
