Identity Lost

by

We’ve forgotten who we are. We’re facing an identity crisis. And the reason is very simple: We have forgotten that it’s the very Person of God which defines us. Who He is speaks who we are into being. So, when God is resisted, pushed away, ignored, considered to be imaginary…that’s…(Read More)

Gear Up To Declare

by

This blog is nearly 4 years old! And I am readying to attend the Declare Conference for the 4th time – that place where I’ve gone to find rest and inspiration to continue on in this bloggy space. Where women gather to worship. Where friends find one another for the first time. Where the #digitalevangelist…(Read More)

Recently, I sat down with a friend I haven’t talked with in depth for a while, just a time to catch up and let our kids play. “What’s going on with you these days?” she tossed out with a smile. I stumbled over thoughts. Usually I can pick one or two things going…(Read More)

So, the raw truth…at first I didn’t want to be a foster mom.  As in, I said, “Never!”  A string of excuses ensued… “I don’t want to deal with government bureaucracy.” “What if I fall in love and can’t let them go?” “What if we can’t afford it?” “What if…(Read More)

The Stillness Grey

by
