This is one of the most important books I've read in awhile. It is important because it tells the truth.  Truth is hard to come by these days.  Everything seems so murky and theologically fuzzy and Christian women need the sharp truth of God's Word to pierce through al...

I may be responsible for the most shameful, awful, never-been-worse medley of all time.  It happened when I was forced to lead worship for a group of several hundred junior high students at a youth camp.  When I say "forced" I mean my booking agent booked it and I need...

It's a bit awkward to blog about a Christmas carol smack dab in the middle of summer, but I suppose this is actually a blog about hopes and fears and those never go out of season, am I right?

There is a line in "O Little Town of Bethlehem" that has always piqued my inte...

I have been gifted with and have developed (over the course of many years) some fairly reliable musical instincts.  Most of the time those instincts serve me well - but on occasion they get me in trouble.  My most recent struggle was with a karaoke track that one of my...

A few weeks ago a sweet friend gifted me 2 succulents that are currently sitting on my windowsill awaiting their certain death.  She told me they were impossible to kill but she doesn't know that I successfully killed a chia pet thereby securing my place as "bringer of...

I love Psalm 23. I've grown up with these words and somehow they seem to have grown up too - slowly unfolding and flipping around and becoming even more precious.  It's funny how you can hear a passage a thousand times and still find something new.

God is teaching me something right now and this thought is so new to my life that I only have one testimony to share with you.  It is a subtle shift in perspective that has the potential to drastically shift our responses and I think the best way I can share this new i...

I want to be generous - at least in theory.  I think most of us desire to be the kind of people who hear about a need and actually have the means to do something about it.  We know the Bible instructs us to live generous lives, so why don't we?  I think it boils down t...
