Let Me Feed the Sheep

For a child, one of the many fun activities at a petting zoo is giving a lamb a bottle. What is it about human beings that causes us to be fascinated with giving food to creatures? And in the spiritual realm, we have actually been instructed to do it! Whether you are responsible for a […]

I Can’t Do It Alone

Over the years, I’ve read many articles on the loneliness of leadership. I know it’s there—I’ve felt it myself. Sometimes I have identified with Elijah’s cry, “They have killed all the prophets, and I’m the only one left.” But God’s response is very reassuring, “I reserve seven thousand in Israel—all whose knees have not...

LESSONS LEARNED IN LEADERSHIP

I never dreamed when I agreed to a three-year term as president of WMC (now Women of Grace USA) that my term would last 17 years. While the world has changed much in that time, some principles I have learned are relevant to any leadership position. I share them with the hope they will help […]

Thoughts About Lent

Day before yesterday was the first Sunday of Lent. I have never been a part of a church that observes Lent and I’m not attuned to the liturgical church calendar, so I was caught by surprise when I read a blog last week about Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten observance. In my growing […]

A burning question for believers

About fifteen of us sat together for almost three hours as we wrestled with the question: how do we make a radical difference in the spiritual growth of the next generation? The group included children’s workers, youth leaders and pastors, and senior pastors from various churches. We all agreed that we need to invest in the young people God...

God sees

Recently I’ve spent a lot of time in the book of Ruth. One thing that strikes me is how obvious it is that God saw and rewarded her daily choices to do the right thing—often the hard thing. She went far beyond in her commitment to her mother-in-law, not only vowing to stick with her until death, but following through by providing for her with...

What about balance?

It's a wonderful, exciting time of year--this season we call Christmas. It's also exhausting. We find ourselves falling wearily into bed at the end of a day of adding party planning and shopping to our already full lives; then, just as we're falling asleep, we remember yet another thing we really need to do this season. "How much am I expected to...

The Faith of a Child

It’s been a hard week as we’ve watched a very dear couple welcome a baby into their family only to lose her five days later. One of many concerns was how our four-and-a-half-year-old grandson would handle the news of his little cousin’s death. He has prayed fervently for Olivia since her health concerns first surfaced months before she...

From Wheaton College!

Hi all! What a marathon I have had! Thursday of last week I trekked from Syracuse, Indiana to Washington D.C. I was part of adult conference there and able to celebrate Women of Grace’s 75th anniversary with them as well as had the opportunity to see Janet Minnix honored for her 17 years of service […]

Abundant Blessings!

I have felt so blessed this last week. I have had many opportunities to be reminded of my heart and the passion which God has placed in me. Today, at church, the pastor spoke on the fight to men specifically and last week about the difficulties we face as women. I love when the Church has the chance […]

Stones of Rememberance

The waters were surging rapidly. The men who carried the Ark of the Covenant stepped forward, placing their feet into the raging waters. All at once the waters parted to each side, standing high to reveal dry land. The priests carried the Ark across, as the rest of the Israelites crossed, too. Once across, Joshua commanded […]

The Holi-daze!!!!

The holidays seem to go faster and faster each year. I’m not sure if this is because holiday decorations begin selling in stores directly after Halloween or simply because as we get older, life seems to move more rapidly. Whatever the reason, I find myself praying to see God in the midst of the pace […]
