Distractions can be dangerous….

] For years I had a pastor who always brought meaningless meetings back to focus. “OK everyone, let’s keep the main thing the main thing.” Yes and a big amen. The news is filled with opportunity. To pray, to help one another, to facilitate donations, to listen to others cry about so much loss and

Is God “good?” One question at a time….

Is God “good?” It was a defining moment. Though I’d been a Christian for years, the question loomed in my mind for days. “Do you believe in the Goodness of God?” 

The pastor even made the statement that if in all of our Biblical knowledge and years of study we still doubted the “goodness” of

I-contact or eye contact?

Becoming a grandmother has been an amazing journey. Our sweet Nessa is adorable, sweet, and from her I’m learning so much. Watching her mom and dad learn the joy of being parents is fun to watch.

Seems someone somewhere had determined Beth Moore was no longer fit to be amongst their options for Bible study authors

The real reason people shop online…

Outside is my happy place, that is unless it’s cold. Part of my fun is critters. Koi pond, bird feeders and one of my favorites, baby turtles. For the last couple of years, I’ve bought my turtles from a traveling reptile exhibit. For those 2 years, I’ve consistently marked it on my calendar, traveled the

Please and thank you, for all the wrong reasons! Adult only though.

It did seem weird.  I’ll admit. It was a big wave of the sincerest gratitude. I could see that he saw me by the way he went to the other side of the road and went much slower as I jogged by. The gray pickup truck was the big kind with a huge tool chest

This is my “thing.” What is yours?

You could say it’s my “thing.” The Purpose of Purpose! Does your life have a purpose? YES! My passion is purpose. Because I’ve spent years interviewing others, often that word is a central focus of most conversations.  Just imagine…. if all who consider themselves  Christians realized their giftedness, we would be some of the most infectious people on earth!

Did your January just become mid February? Quit playing around with this stuff.

Decisions, Decisions! January is all about decisions. Goals, resolutions, and changes that bring desired results. While that is good, it can also be much like going on a diet. Without developing healthy eating habits, as a consistent way of life, weight and health management are just momentary good ideas. Such it is with goals. Most
