The Father’s Lavish Love

I'm a couple of weeks late passing this along, but I was blessed to share a post on enCourage for Father's Day (read it here). As I sat at my laptop attempting to write about earthly fathers and our Heavenly Father there were so many stories, thoughts, and feelings in my head and heart I... Continue Reading →

The Lazy J

Originally written December 2010, still true today. I'm not entirely sure what has prompted this memory, but it surfaces now and then, so I'll share it here. My grasp of the years and specific dates of things that happened when I was growing up is rather fuzzy. Yet I do remember that there was a... Continue Reading →

Sanctification by Dog

There are times in my walk with God when I have heard His voice tenderly say, 'This too, my child, is for your sanctification.'

God used this child to bring our daughter home to us, and, more importantly, home to Him. She is now married to a man who also loves the Lord and he... Continue Reading →

An open letter to our young people. Though the original version of this was written to the young ladies of the homeschool group to which we belonged in Pennsylvania, it applies to young men as well. The clamorous voices of the world have since gotten louder in seeking to drown out the voice of God... Continue Reading →

Ballad of the Unborn

The original version of this post was written and posted Monday, January 20, 2014. When I first wrote this four years ago the death toll from abortions since 1973 stood at 50 million. I just checked the statistics as of today, and the number of abortions in America since the 1973, when Roe v. Wade... Continue Reading →

Read Through the Bible in 2018

The Christmas season is finally upon us and the halls are decked, music is in the air, and plans for holiday parties and events are filling the calendars. It seems the ‘most wonderful time of the year,’ is also the busiest time of the year. The month of December flies by super-fast, and before you... Continue Reading →

As The Mother of a U. S. Army Soldier

First published Monday, August 8, 2011, republished in honor of Veteran's Day. I am grateful to say that my son came home from Afghanistan, was honorably discharged from the Army at the end of his service, is now married and is pursuing a college degree. Thank you, Nathaniel, for your service. Friday, as we were... Continue Reading →
