God’s Definition of Intimacy in Marriage

I have been in love with my husband for nearly 10 years. Sure we met a little over 10 years ago, but who really loves someone at first sight? My attraction towards him blossomed into love about this time one decade ago. I remember telling him in the early part of April of 2005 that I […]

Cursing and The Power of Our Words

“For the word of God is alive and powerful.  It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow.  It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” Hebrews 4:12 How true it is that what is in your heart comes through in your words and tone.  When you are […]

Gossip: More Serious Than We Thought

We have all done it. Gossip. It’s something that even the secular world understands as something we should not do. There seems to be a common understanding that gossip is wrong. Nevertheless, we have all partaken in gossip and you can count on the fact that everyone has been the one talking at one time […]

Addiction, Feeling Worthless, and My Path to Freedom

  He said, “I think it’s time you share that story… it’s who you are.” I replied, “It’s not who I am, it’s who I was.” “It’s who you are because everything in your past has made you who you are today.” While I agree with part of that last statement, much of who I […]

John the Baptist

I’ve been thinking about John the Baptist lately. He is the one story in the Bible that can sufficiently trip me up; he and Job are similar in that regard. Here is a man who is totally obedient, at least as far as we know, and goes so far as to live in the desert […]

Confessions of a Mom Afraid of Prayer

Did that title jump out at you? Yes, this is me. I am coming to you with my heart wide open! Prayer intimidates me. I feel like I have to pray a certain way, if I don’t get the right words in, will it even be considered prayer? I stick to the cliche, “Dear Lord, […]
