Yup! This is the blog’s one year anniversary. Or should it be called a birthday? I don’t know. One year, 71 posts, 7,326 views, and a whole lotta hot air later I’m still amazed at the excitement I feel every time I sit down to write a blog. Thanks everyone for reading and commenting and […]

I’m terrible with directions. I think it has something to do with being left handed. Really. I mean it. My mother-in-law is left handed too. Once I was driving her to the store and she was giving me directions. She said, “Turn right.” And I turned left instead. OMW. “Ruth! I turned left, sorry. I […]

Interview With Dr. Teri McCarthy Here’s an interview (it’s 13 minutes long) I did with a local church on how I got into missions in the first place. It’s like I always say, “God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.” I was 23 years old when I first went […]

OMW! I was so blown away (i.e. truly surprised) by the responses to “Why I Think Vampires Suck!” (posted 9/22). I think I hit an artery…uh…errr…I mean a nerve. I’ve gotten nearly 500 hits on that posting thus far (over 300 the first day!) That’s the most ever in the blog’s one-year history. WOW. So, […]

Why I Think Vampires Suck!

Published in faith, obedience

What is it with the obsession these days with vampires? And it’s not just the “yung peeps!” It seems to be everyone, everywhere. For example, I have an acquaintance who is in a top leadership position in a major international Christian ministry. And of course he blogs–just like everybody else these days. But his blog […]

The Miracle of Obedience

Published in faith, obedience

Ya know, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my sis and brother-in-law’s financial miracle. (See The Bean Fields and Mighty Men of Valor 8/25). It was such joy to see my sister’s relief, to hear of God’s mercy and grace being poured into their lives. It was a “whew” moment—saved-by-the-Father kind of thing. But […]

Bean Fields and Mighty Men of Valor

Eleazar was one of David’s mighty men of valor. You know, the David from the Old Testament. The David who eventually became king, but was harangued by Saul. The David and Goliath guy. Anyway, the Bible says he had three Mighty Men of Valor and Eleazar was one of them. Eleazar and his story is […]

The Ladies’ Room Prayer and Heroes of the Faith

Published in faith, missions

It seems difficult for Millennials to find real heroes today. Christian teens especially struggle to find good role models and mentors. Mine was always Corrie ten Boom. I was twelve-years-old when I first saw The Hiding Place. My family was living in Oklahoma City at the time. Every Sunday my parents let me go to […]

Aged Clay is Better: But It Stinks!

Published in faith, Uncategorized

Effects of Aging Clay: aging lends better workability to clay. To age clay, it is left open to the air for a day or two after mixing. This allows microscopic organisms to move into and grow within the clay. These organisms add more plasticity to the clay. The one drawback aged clay has is that […]

Can Angels Drive?

Published in faith, missions

A few years back I took a trip around the globe seeking the Church. I was trying to answer the question, “What is the role of the North American white male in 21st century missions?” Nowhere did this question need to be asked more than in Africa. It was July. I purchased my ticket in […]
