    We live in a world with many distractions and messages that pull us in many directions. I write to encourage you to slow down and allow your soul to stop and connect with our loving God. I believe when we still our racing minds and bodies in God's presence, we can know God more intimately (see Psalm 46:10).

Hope in your brokenness

When her book released recently, I prayed many would read her book because I believe its message. Unexpectedly, our books overlapped in themes, such as hope in brokenness because of God. "We are made in the image of God. And wasn’t God’s heart made to be broken too? Wounds can be openings to the beauty in us. And our weaknesses can be a container for God’s glory."

Although distance separates us, we love and believe in the same God. Thank you for trusting me with your real story and emotions. God is with you and hasn't forgotten or abandoned you. So I share what faith I have with you because my friends' faith carried me (many times) when I was weak. Their faith in God held me when ...

Belief and your destiny?

She was a poor teenager in a small backwater town. Enemy troops controlled her homeland. No one of power and influence noticed her. He was a trained religious leader. He and his wife had been married for years. God called them "blameless," yet God hadn't answered their many prayers for a child. For the past week or two, I read a familiar Christmas story. As I read the story over and over, I noticed something. A "you can't make this up" kind of surprise interrupted Zechariah and Mary in the middle of an ordinary day. How did they ...
