To be honest, I'm haunted these days by a door that wasn't opened. My mind keeps waiting for the usual narrative, since in books and movies, the hero always gets the door open and saves the day. Unfortunately, real life doesn...

Just for fun, I'm joining in with Emily of Chatting at the Sky for a link-up called What I Learned.  This is a mix of treasures that I picked up along the way this month.  1.Tom Hanks- he’s still as adorable as he’s always been- and all I need to do is watch him in this video to get a pretty good idea what my husband will look like in about 20 years.   They’ve always shared an uncanny likeness to each other, and now I’ve learned that...

"Your grace abounds in deepest waters," comes from the song, Above the Waves (Where Feet May Fail), by Hillsong.  I've been using the lyrics of this beautiful song as a framework for this book/blog.  The overarching theme is trusting in Jesus, and most recently, I’ve been writing about trusting God when it really hurts-in the deepest waters. God’s grace, in other words, his unmerited lovingkindness, is available to all who cry out to...

It wasn’t what we wanted.  It would only be for a little while-or that was the idea.  It ended up being eight years.  The plan after college was to move to southern California.  Instead, we ended up moving back to Wenatchee, Washington, our hometown.  We had our baby daughter by this time.  We both wanted to live in a big city, and Derek wanted to take an opportunity to run with a track club in Santa Monica.  He had done well with co...

Weary. Burdened. Just plain tired of being tired. Sometimes we don't realize how worn out we are until we have a chance to get away, a chance to rest, a chance to "be still."  We don't realize we'v...

Monday morning she wakes early to a world who hates her for what she is. She wakes to an earful of voices telling her what she should and shouldn’t be, what she should and shouldn’t do, what’s acceptable and what isn’t. She wakes to ladders and platforms and this demand to prove your worth. She …

I want to tell you this story, because I think it illustrates God’s sovereignty, wisdom, and love. It was a time where he showed me that he is with me, that I am never alone.  This is one of my more dramatic stories.  Most of what I experience in my daily life with God more subtle. Most of His work in my life is behind the scenes, and sadly, I’m sure I miss noticing the majority of it.  But this time, he chose to show his love in a wa...

Gospel simply means good news.  The good news is Christ.  Believing in what Christ Jesus did for us is the foundation of everything I will be writing about on this blog.   It’s the foundation of my life.  We can put our trust in Christ because of what he did for us.   He is our hope. Our problem is that we’re separated from God.      "Your sins have caused a separation between you and your God . . . " Isaiah 59:2 “for all have si...

“I can think of nothing great that is also easy.” Tim Keller said this in his book on prayer, but it applies to, well, everything. Parenting, church-planting, prayer, faith, there is no great work (and mundane work is great) that is easy, and so we must always be at work slaying foes of doubt and discouragement. …

People rarely admit they pray against Africa. But we do. We’re scared of the poverty, the extreme without. We’re afraid of the disease and the children whose faces are covered with flies and have sickened feet without the protection of shoes. It’s a scary, unknown continent where missionaries wear long skirts and wraps in their…

Unknowns make me uncomfortable, but they’re a part of life, and learning to accept that I can’t control and plan everything that happens to me or to those I love is how I'm learning to trust in Jesus.  I rest in the knowledge of Romans 8:28, which says, And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. The good that is promised will sometimes be a mystery, s...

There are a few things in life that make me inexplicably happy no matter what mood I’m in…things that restore my faith in humanity and lift my spirits regardless of what’s going on. Flashmobs are one of those things. I just g...
