As a child and teenager that felt like no one noticed me, I sought attention in any form.  I lived for the shock factor.  I have some crazy stories of things I did for attention.  I was good at getting others to notice me, except the ones that I wanted attention from.  However, through all...

Testimony of Truth

Growing up in a home where secrets were a way of life, I value the truth more than anything.  I would rather hear and speak the ugly truth than hear or tell a colorful, well formed lie.  I realize that much of my life was shaped by lies.  Not ones that were necessarily spoken but unspoken...

Tearing down idols

I have a distorted image of what an idol is.  I think of the Buddah with the belly that you rub for good luck.  I think of teenage girls swarming some popular singer or actor that is the next big thing.  I think of people praying to images, the sun, the moon, etc.  I think... Continue Reading →

He Leads Me

I woke Saturday morning still thinking about the prompt from #fmfparty yesterday "still."  This verse came to mind, and then my mind started turning. Psalms 23:2 NKJV He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.  I am very much someone who likes to stay busy.  In the... Continue Reading →

Grateful {#Tuesday@Ten}

Grateful, the word always reminds me of Thanksgiving, only a more common, everyday kind of thanks.  I have so many things in my life to give thanks.  However, the thing that I am most deeply appreciative and thankful for is being raised in a home where I was given a solid foundation in the God despite my...

A True Measure of Friendship

This week in Life Kid's I was preparing to teach the kids about the friendship of Jonathan and David.  I know the story.  It is about their deep friendship, how Jonathan was Saul's son and they became best friends.  How Jonathan helped David escape from death. And how when Jonathan died David mourned.   David... Continue Reading →

Seek {#Tuesday@Ten}

I often talk about my past matter of factually.  I realized earlier this year that I have processed the events of my past, but never the emotions.  A friend kept pressing for how I FELT and I honestly couldn't tell her.  I help people process their feelings, but was not in touch with my own,...
