My Life-Changing Revelation

August 1, 2014

My Life-Changing Revelation Like most people, I have spent a good amount of time trying to understand my life experiences. And, if I am honest, many things haven’t made sense. Unexplained paths. Dashed expectations. Disappointments. Shattered dreams. There have been times in life, probably like you, when I have looked back over my shoulder and thought, God, what in the world was that [...]

Careening Careers

July 31, 2014

Careening Careers Here’s the deal: Most of us are going to need to find jobs or create a business in order to survive on this earth. That’s the way it is . . . and should be. But here’s the thing: Often we don’t choose our careers; they choose us. During my last year in high school, [...]

How You Can Truly Succeed

July 30, 2014

How You Can Truly Succeed Last weekend, I attended She Speaks in Concord, North Carolina where over 800 women showed up carrying their luggage and fragile dreams. The conference, produced by Proverbs 31 Ministries, is designed to help writers and speakers maximize their gifts of communication to glorify God. On the first day of the event, I had the opportunity [...]

Why Rest Matters

July 29, 2014

Why Rest Matters I have always had a problem sitting still—always. In fact, I used to actually lay on my stomach at night and bump my head on my pillow until I went to sleep. Resting, slowing down, whatever you want to call it has always been a major issue for me. I came to the realization a few years [...]

Through Heaven’s Doorway

July 28, 2014

Through Heaven’s Doorway When five-year-old Emily Kimball was hospitalized and heard she was going to die, she started to cry. Even though she loved Jesus and wanted to be with him, she didn’t want to leave her family behind. Then her mother had an inspired idea. She asked Emily to step through a doorway into another room, and [...]

When You Feel Unqualified

July 25, 2014

When You Feel Unqualified A few years ago I wrote my first book and one day after its publication, I decided to surf the Internet to see if I could find any helpful reviews for the “paperback baby” I had just birthed after almost a year of labor. Google led me to a blog with an excerpt from my [...]

Action Words

July 24, 2014

Action Words “She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.”  (Mark [...]

Fixing Your Marriage Starts With You

July 23, 2014

Fixing Your Marriage Starts With You You know the feeling. You’ve spent several hours in the same room but neither of you have spoken a word. It’s the dreaded silent treatment. Was it something you said? Something you did? What was it this time? Conflict in marriage is inevitable. The key isn’t avoiding marriage problems but learning how to navigate them [...]

How to Handle Rejection

July 22, 2014

How to Handle Rejection Have you noticed that sometimes God will allow us to be exposed to the very thing that frightens us so we will realize that we are not victims, but instead can be victors? This is how it was for me with rejection. Twenty-five years ago it was the relational difficulty that terrified me, whether with [...]

Set a Prisoner Free

July 21, 2014

Set a Prisoner Free The word oops is not in God’s vocabulary. Isn’t that great to know? God is in control. We, on the other hand, can’t control everything that happens in our lives, even though we try. But there is one thing we can do, and that is forgive. We can forgive those who have wronged us.
