Pruning Can Be Fruitful

Sometimes we simply need pruning. Our season of life has shifted and we are holding on not wanting change. We know the grace has lifted and yet we cling to what we know even though this part of our lives is not bearing fruit. Perhaps one of these things fits your circumstances: Your job has […]

God With Us

Isaiah prophesied that the Messiah would come and that His name would be Emmanuel, God with us. There are days when I wonder if God is preoccupied with more important things than me.

The Super Woman Syndrome

Although my blogs are read by men and women, this blog is directed primarily to women because women seem to struggle more with feelings of inadequacy, believing we are not enough. Perhaps I am wrong. But because I am around women most every day, I am acutely aware of this. Why do we think we […]

Love Letter

Did you know that God’s Word is a love letter to you? Years ago while reading Scripture, my heart began to beat faster and I had a heightened sense of extravagant love directed towards me.

Is Your Heart Hardened?

The past few days I have been talking to God about my heart. I was impatient with my husband, irritated with a project I needed to complete, and angry that the pandemic just won’t go away! It was a full on pile up of emotions mixed with a sense of frustration. Makes me think of […]
