Lies We Believe

I was watching television the other day when a talk show host promoted a new weight loss technology. She claims to have gotten outstanding results from a machine that radiates heat while hovering over a person’s midsection. Apparently, all that is required to lose unwanted pounds is the ability to lie on a table and Continue Reading…

What to Do When Life Stinks

Last week I drove from Atlanta, Georgia to a suburb on the west side of Chicago, Illinois with a minivan jammed full of my possessions. Once I arrived, I was immediately grateful for the new town I will become a resident of after I marry on September 6. It’s a little slice of American history Continue Reading…

My Indy 500 Experience

During my teenage years, I struggled with following the speed limit. Between the ages of sixteen and eighteen, I received a number of traffic tickets for excessive speed. My parents would take away my driving privileges for a month here or there. They’d warn me of the dangers of driving fast. They’d remind me that Continue Reading…

Three immodestly dressed women walk into a church

She was beaming with excitement on this early Sunday morning. Up until just a few months ago, she would have probably been sleeping off a hangover right about now. But not today. A christian co-worker, who had befriended her this past year, was faithful in sharing the gospel with her. As she shared with her Continue Reading…

I’ve Been Thinking (Part 2)

« Read Part 1 I remember being in a meeting a few years back where someone asked the group to answer the question, “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” It was a poignant moment. We all realized in a rather short period of time just how much fear can dictate our actions. No Continue Reading…

When You Feel Shaken

This past year, God has shaken many things I put my hope in, in particular my ministry. For the past five years, I devoted myself to serving my neighborhood through fitness nights, pancake breakfasts, pot lucks, investigative Bible studies, and mentoring groups women. Caring for my neighbors became my whole life. My service became my Continue Reading…

And I Had the Perfect Comeback

Last week I was on a plane with 2 friends. We were talking in normal conversation tones, about my book “Unglued,” when suddenly the couple in front of us came unglued. On us. Joy. The man turned around and said, “Can you guys just QUIET DOWN already?” It wasn’t a gentle suggestion. It was a Continue Reading…

Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God?

Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758), an evangelist from the early 1700′s helped lead revival in early colonial America. “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” was the title of a famous sermon he delivered on July 8th 1741. Only four days after the 4th of July. Oops, sorry they had not invented Independence Day yet. That Continue Reading…

Perfect Butterflies

I was just returning from a Men’s Group Hot Dog Club and this butterfly was sitting on the bushes. Well I grabbed my cell phone and snapped a shot. I was hit by the beauty and delicacy and the detail of this creation. Then my mind went to Romans 12:1-2 where Paul wrote “do not Continue Reading…
