A Harvest For The Taking

A Harvest For The Taking

  I love birthdays. I love making a big deal of my friends and family. And honestly, I love my birthday just as much! It’s currently a birthday month in my world and I’m shameless about it. This year for my birthday I asked my parents for a lemon tree,…

The Soil Of Our Hearts

The Soil of Our Hearts

  “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.” Gen. 8:22 God’s promise is that our lives will bear a holy rhythm that reflects the natural rhythm of the earth. Planting seed, watering, weeding, waiting and finally, harvesting is…

Freedom To Be F.A.T.

Freedom to be F.A.T.

  It was a Sunday morning. I stood in front of my closet undressed.  My closet was full of clothing.  Much of the clothing did not fit, was well worn, or I had worn it recently.  Nothing was good enough.  I was fat. I was ugly. I had nothing to…

A Journey From Blah Faith

A Journey from Blah Faith

I remember a time when life was dry. Do you ever have those seasons? Seasons where things aren’t bad, but there’s not much excitement either. I would go about my day with a sense of blah faith, and while I knew there was more to life and faith than just…

God’s Goodness in the Waiting

  Negative. That is how the pregnancy test read, month after month, for two years. Two years that felt like an eternity. Every hour, many days, seemed like a battle. I knew the Lord knew the desires of my heart, so why wouldn’t this pain go away? Why was I…

Whose Plans Do You Trust?

Trading Up in the Wilderness  As my brain willed my feet to take 5 more steps, a picture of the plaque hung in my mind.  It had been given to us as a house warming gift when we came off the mission field.  Jeremiah 29:11-13--you know the verses.  The Lord…

Dear World, Please Forgive Us.

Dear World, please forgive us.

Hey everyone. This post I share with you today has never felt more raw and true. As I wrote it, it felt like a straight up download from heaven. What you are about to read is going to rub some the wrong way because it is meant to disarm all…

The Winds Of Change

The Winds of Change

People have been asking me lately, “How’s it going with the book?” My reply is still one of wonderment and awe. I still can’t believe it is out there and that people are picking it up and returning home to the heart of God who makes all things well.  To…

Imperfectly Free

Imperfectly Free

I was the skinny girl everyone called “bird legs.”  I was the wimpy kid who always got picked last.  I was the musician because I couldn’t be the athlete. I was the insecure girl always trying to fit in when I knew I didn’t.   I grew up and out…

It’s SHOWTIME. Let’s Shine!

It’s SHOWTIME. Let’s Shine!

“Would you please pray for me? I’m afraid of losing what God has started to do in me.”  Her heart shaped face was a healthy pink shade, as her sweat hadn’t quite dried yet. I had seen this look many times, and every time I see it, my heart is…
