I don’t, He does

My daughter is struggling again with health. We thought the Celiac disease would be the answer – and of course it is AN answer, but not the only one. Something else is going on too and I have no idea what it is. Her… Continue Reading “I don’t, He does”

A Barn?!

“Jesus was born in a barn?!! He slept in a food bowl for animals?!” My daughter’s utter astonishment reminded me of how easily we gloss over the Christmas story, the Christmas songs, the reality of how Jesus was born. I can practically quote the… Continue Reading “A Barn?!”

Listen

God can speak to us in so many ways. A still quiet voice, what we mistake for our “conscience,” through the bible, a pastor, a friend, the TV, an image… Really we can see an hear from God in any number of ways.

Worship

Monday, on the way to school, my daughter told me the most precious thing, the thing that melted my heart and made me proud and teary and like maybe, just maybe I’m doing some things right. If you’ve followed me at all, you know… Continue Reading “Worship”

It’s Just Talking
