We are one week from leaving for Lithuania and we still don’t have a place to live. But I keep humming the Christmas carol, “No crib for a bed…” Even the Son of God on His advent to earth didn’t have a place to live. That strikes me as so strange. It wasn’t like God […]

Some things I’ll just never understand this side of heaven. A friend said to me recently, “I don’t want to go to hell over a mystery.” I know exactly what he was saying even though I believe once saved always saved. If I edited that statement and made it mine it’d go like this: “I […]

There is a time in all of our lives, no matter how old or young we are, that we need to stop and evaluate things—do a sort of assessment of where we are and why we are doing what we are doing. Friends said to me once they always felt kind of guilty when hanging […]

Okay guys! Please forgive me in advance for using the blog for a newsletter. Daryl was in the hospital for five days! He’s never been in the hospital in his life! (Yes, birth, but that’s all). We’ve lost two weeks of prep time getting him well. He still has a little infection and is on […]

Obedience Doesn’t Always Require Sacrifice

Every single day of my life I’ve had to make decisions. We all have. When I was a kid my Mom would ask, “What do you want for breakfast?” That’s decision making 101. When I got older my teachers in school would ask, “Do you want to pass or fail this class?” That’s decision making […]

Angels Watchin’ Over Me!

Anyone remember that old Amy Grant song from the ‘80s? “Angels watchin’ over me every step I taaaakkee. Angels watchin’ over me every move I maaaake.” When you speak of angels, folks can get a bit edgy. Either your too New Agey or a freaky charismatic to most people. Billy Graham did a lot for […]

I am a big, loud, white woman! I’ve been big and loud and…well…white all of my life. When I was a little girl I used to get in big trouble all the time in school as a result of sheer volume. My Mom went to check with one of my elementary school teachers to find […]

They Shall Be Comforted

Mourning isn’t just about loss of life. We can also mourn the loss of a dream, the realization that a situation isn’t going to get any better. I realized lately that I’ve been in a state of mourning—grieving actually over something that simply isn’t going to happen. We as human beings are pretty much who […]

I love missions! I love everything about missions. I love the fact that God uses mere mortals to participate with Him in His great Redemption Story. I love the joyful and miraculous idea that God invites His children to be a part of what He is doing around the world and in the hearts and […]

Redemption Can Be Found in Every Pile of Garbage

In 1991 the average Muscovite woman had 18 abortions in a lifetime. (The national average for women across Russia at that time was six). The procedure became so common and such an everyday occurrence that most Muscovite women ceased calling it an abortion and decided to call it douche or a cleansing. It was a […]
