Our Last Minute God

Were you taught to not wait until the last minute, maybe for studying for a test, finishing a project or leaving for an appointment? Some people can’t stand the stress it will cause, while others live off the adrenaline rush they require to get things done. My husband recently asked me why I waited til…

Peace on Earth is Not Cancelled

A wall hanging at Hobby Lobby gripped my attention last week. The round, six-inch plaque simply said, “Peace on earth.” A cynical part of me scoffed, yeah right. What peace? Is peace on earth even possible? We see anything but peace today – political unrest, rebellion against the things of God, religious liberty threatened, heightened…

Prayer Is Not Cancelled!

It’s been a grueling year, hasn’t it? As though the virus and lockdowns weren’t enough, the presidential campaign has been just as disturbing. I know we’re all worn out.

Let’s Start a Prayerdemic!

(This is the transcript to go along with my talk from 5/23/20 at the LeadHer Online Conference, Lead Her to Still Waters.)   “He leads me beside still waters.” Psalm 23:2b   A gently flowing stream comes to mind when we hear “still waters,” or peaceful or quiet waters, depending on the version of Psalm…

Thank God it’s Good Friday

There’s some dispute over who first coined the phrase that gave us the acronym TGIF (it wasn’t the restaurant chain, who only borrowed the phrase), but I find it interesting it stands for, “Thank God It’s Friday” in a world where anything about God is scorned. I guess they can skip right over the word…
