I hate folding laundry. Don’t even get me started on putting up the dishes. I don’t like monotonous work like making my bed every morning, going to the grocery store, putting gasoline in the car, or even showering. (Sorry, but personal hygiene is SO monotonous; have you even seen my hair?). I’ve always struggled with […]

Remember Billy Joel’s 1970’s hit “Just the Way You Are?” I like that song. Don’t go changin’ to try and please me…I love you just the way you are. Pretty. I like it. Anne Lamott writes in her book Travelling Mercies, “God loves you just the way you are and He loves you too much […]

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!

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 […]

It’s back to school time! Swoosh…summer’s gone. Unbelievable. We are now looking at the 2009-2010 academic year. Exciting stuff. Some folks who read this old blog of mine are teachers, college professors, university instructors, and even homeschoolers. To celebrate this back-to-school season, I want to share a four part series with you on teaching like […]

Living Intentionally

Published in faith, obedience

I travel a lot. Not just overseas, but here at home as well. I meet new people almost weekly and I love it. But something that has started to concern me over the past few years is that I don’t find people living intentionally. Most folks it seems are living by default, or worse yet,  […]
