"Welcome to the Chart Room"
I have been in the midst of the BRAVE journey with Crossroads and many other churches in our city.

Link Center.  This interactive prayer
experience was one that provided some hands on t...

Of Strong Ankles, Fullness of Life, and His Perfect Way
I have been in the midst of the BRAVE journey with Crossroads and many other churches in our city. 
This week I spent some time meditating as a part of a group work challenge.  There were two other options

Where Are You?
She slips from my lap and picks up her Jesus Storybook Bible .*  She hands it to me, saying,
“Carry please, Mama.” I say, “Sure!” as we head out the gate and toward the
bathroom. She settles in on the floor as I pull out a floss
pick.  She calls out to me, ...

Isaiak!
I pull her out of her seat at the table and set her on

For the Tired and Weary
After I lay my Little Love down, I find my way to the
love seat where my Bible and journal sit tucked in a bin nearby.   I pull them out and set them beside me while I
pile on the blankets.   I grab my Bible
and pause, holding it in my left hand.   I

Come To Me
He began pursuing me quietly last spring. Some family members sat across from me in the living room
while my Little Love happily played on the floor between us.   They asked me what I was doing to find
