I was born an empathetic person. It seems woven into my DNA and it's something that, believe it or not, has not only enabled me to help others in some way along their journey, but it has also caused a great deal of confusion and pain to me. I like this article; an interesting perspective on how difficult it is to empathize when you have suffered so much personally, there is no room left in your soul to feel another's pain.

It occurred to me recently that there can be a counterfeit for the shamelessness that our hearts have cried out for since the Beginning. One of the clearest pictures of seen of this counterfeit was in Sin City itself. There's a difference between being numb to the effects of demoralizing actions and actually living a shame-free life. Read this week's blog entry to find out what the heck I'm talking about.

One thing I've learned has the power to heal, restore, and actually change things: God's passionate love for us. #Warrior is a novel about a group of endangered people who discover that their only hope for survival is found within the reality of the Creator's love.

When I started dreaming up a storyline for my new series, "The Remnant Chronicles," one of the strongest threads was related to this idea that there is an entire people-group who are spiritually asleep and dormant. I've always felt this passion to see God's people, Zion, awaken from their slumber. It seems to me that, if we truly have the Spirit who raised Christ from the dead dwelling within us, things should look a lot different than they do now.

The first book of the series, "Warrior," begins right in the middle of an action sequence where Rayah has escaped incarceration by the Universal Government, which, among other things, has outlawed any form of religion in the new world. This is an image we captured when filming the trailer for the book where +Vera Malitskaya perfectly captures the torment of someone who is running for her life but at the same time, has access to limitless power.

To celebrate the release of my new book, "Warrior," I'm asking my readers to share stories about heroes in their own lives. I think each of us can think of times when someone has done something that has left us awe-inspired. Maybe they've even impacted us directly with their heroism.

I've been married for almost twenty years. I can hardly believe it. One of my daughters asked me the other day how long Daddy and I had been married and I hesitated when I realized the answer. Where the heck did all those years go?

In some ways, I feel like Paul and I have been together my whole life. In other ways, I feel like . . . well it was just yesterday when I donned my Maid Marian floral wreath and walked down the isle.

There's something about this marriage thing that I think has been eluding a great lot of us for quite some time—maybe even since the beginning. They call it "oneness." I think I'm starting to glimpse it, though it's like looking through a mirror darkly. 

I wrote a little article about it here. Give it a read and let me know what you think. :)

From time to time (any by "time to time," I mean CONSTANTLY) I become frustrated/enraged by certain things in our culture. I find the drastic tension between the atrocities happening around the world and the flippant, demoralizing nature of our mass media to be hugely disheartening. It seems like a beast too vicious and too crafty to try to confront on my own. 

As most people who know me will tell you (especially my hubby) though, I am a little . . . stubborn sometimes. And if someone I care about is being threatened, that stubbornness looks a little bit like Rambo with a blonde bob cut.

Speaking of rage, a new men's magazine I was reviewing may have ignited the fury a touch. Please read and feel free to comment. I won't bite, I swear.
