Showing Grace to Essential Employees

Artboard 2Essential Em

It is amazing how much life has changed in such a short period of time. Many of us may have lost jobs, been forced to reschedule plans until further notice, and don't know what the next steps for schooling are going to be. We have heard countless stories of the people who are facing the virus and its patients head on, but what about the other people who are still working i...

Redeeming Our Time

Redeeming-our-timeArtboard-2

Redeeming our Time I don't think I have to start with an explanation of how weird the last few weeks have been. It is safe to say that what we are experiencing these days is unprecedented not only in the impact it has already had around the globe, but in the far reaching consequences that will come from it in the months and years to come. I have to say, I vastly underesti...

Soul-Spring-CleaningArtboard-2

As I was writing my post on mom guilt and referencing Kevin DeYoung's book Crazy Busy, I realized that there was a lot to take away from the book as a Christian during this time of quarantine, not just as a parent. So, at risk of becoming the Crazy Busy Lady, I'm back again! If you didn't read my previous post (and don't feel bad if you didn't), I talked about how last fa...

Dealing with Conflict in marriage profile

It is unavoidable in marriage. How we deal with conflict makes all the difference in how healthy and strong our marriage becomes. There are couples who deal with conflict with shouting matches that could flatten a wheat field. Ken Sande in his book, The Peacemaker, calls these types, "Peace Breakers." There are couples who deal with it by ignoring it, "Peace Fakers." ...

Connecting Creatively With Our Seniors

Connecting-Creatively-with-our-seniorsArtboard-2

I have the honor of going into many of our Senior Living Communities and serving the most fragile of residents and their families. My mom, Miss Les taught me from a very young age to honor our seniors by her own example as a Charge Nurse at Nursing home for 25 years. I learned from watching her, listening to her stories and seeing the Joy she experienced daily in serving ...

I’ve been a follower of Jesus for over 15 years now. That might be an impressive number to a few and probably laughable to others. I only bring it up because after 15 years I find that I still make some of the same silly mistakes over and over again. ...

Faith And Financial Preparedness

Faith-and-financial-preparednessArtboard-2

We must understand that our choices place us in the bounds of responsibility. If we acquire much, we will have the responsibility to care for much. If we choose to live a minimalist life, our responsibilities will be minimal. With our individual choices of “things,” we must be responsible as believers and prepared to cover their costs during guaranteed hardships. That...
