This sounds exactly like therapy. Except, it’s lived out.

When I was a child, I had big dreams, much more unrealistic then my current dreams. I wanted to be on SNL, and I wanted to write screenplays and act in the movies I wrote. Even though I had a speech impediment, I was a determined kid, and I still pursued theater (despite some laughing […]

A Lent Thought on Body Image

In my job I work with a lot of teen girls which means body image issues are prevalent. They always have been. It doesn’t matter what decade (and I’ve got nearing 4 decades accumulated of working with teen girls). Yet every decade something new must be hated about our bodies. Now we have the “thigh […]

You Sparkled Before Valentine’s Day

February is beginning but I’m afraid all things Valentine’s has begun long before February 1. Wonderful single people, I’m sorry that the world is putting you through this. It’s a stupid holiday.

Don’t Compromise Your Soul So You Can Get Married

The fool tries to adjust the truth so he does not have to adjust to it.” —Dr. Henry Cloud, Necessary Endings (I recommend this book!) To compromise in a […]

The Morning Prayer of the One Who Already Feels Behind

Good morning, Jesus. I feel the dread of the day already. Already I am behind. Already I feel unloved. Already I feel like I’m not enough. Help me get out of bed. Then help me remember the truth. I declare Psalm 138:8 , The Lord will work out his plans for my life–for your faithful […]

Confessions…..

I have a confession to make…..sometimes I feel like I am not a good missionary. Kevin and I arrived in Botswana full time in 2004. I’ve been doing this full time for 13 years. It’s a long time. At the same time I feel like even after 13 years, there is still so much to […]
