Trust the Shepard

How is it that I haven’t posted a blog since my birthday five months ago!? I am telling you, this year is flying by. My lack of silence is not meaning that there is nothing going on…..On the contrary, there is a lot going on in my heart and I am just waiting for the […]

A Ten Month Relationship is Not a Failure

I received this message from a guy in my life (who also happens to be a great catch): Mandy and I broke up, so that’s tough. The distance was getting to be too much. Our personalities were different enough that we always had to put a lot of work into our relationship even when we […]

Keeping Your World Small Is a Coping Mechanism. Sigh.

I have raised four wonderful boys, now men. I had no idea what I was doing. They chose me. Noticing their attachment to me I heard God’s direction to say yes. I jumped in. And John married all of us. We were a group package on that wedding day. When it came to raising these […]

Someday I’ll do a whole blog series—or sermon series—on the salutations Paul closed his letters with. They always catch me because they feel so personal. Maybe because at times the Bible does […]

“But things are different now, and doubt is a luxury we can’t afford any more, Sweetie. You have more power than you realize. Don’t think, and don’t worry. If the time comes, you’ll know what to do. It’s in your blood.” –Elastigirl Finally The Incredibles are returning to give us another story! We are seeing […]

(Relentless) Reckless Love of God

Let me start by saying I’ve been listening to Cory Asbury since his early days at IHOP in Kansas City. I’ve led a handful of his songs over the years at churches, night watches, David’s Tent in Washington DC and in other settings. So my opinion here is not based in anti-Asbury bias or any […]

Brave Shoes

Do you remember your 8th grade year? Do you remember desiring to stand out or trying to do everything you can to fit in? For me it was trying to get that Farrah Fawcett hair to fit in. Yes, I certainly dated myself with that reference. I never came close to that look back then […]
