Start sharing

I have so much to write about it’s been hard to pick a topic today. I truly try to write about areas in which I am struggling or questioning or flare-ups of my character defects. Thus, quite an array of blog opportunities. But today, through a serious of unfortunate events, I now know exactly whatContinue reading “Start sharing”

Might As Well Be You

A couple weeks ago I spoke at a cancer support group in California. It’s called Anchor and is run by a fellow cancer-kicker named Kathy, who will probably kill me for drawing attention to her. She is kind and humble and surrendered to whatever God wants to do with her. And what He has beenContinue reading “Might As Well Be You”

You go first

Someone’s gotta GO FIRST. It might as well be me. I have a confession to make: I watched the move “Bad Moms”. Yep. I was eating dinner while watching TV (another confession…sorry mom!) and it was on some chick-channel and I got sucked in. I am not necessary encouraging you to watch it (it wasContinue reading “You go first”

A Thrill of Hope

Last month I did a book signing at Stepping Stones Bookstore in Iowa. The owner, my lovely new friend Mindy, let me take over the front of the store for the whole day and gave a lavish and gushingly grand testimony about my books to each and every customer (You can order from her storeContinue reading “A Thrill of Hope”

“What you think of me is none of my business.”

What other people think of me is crucial (good or bad). Other people’s success is a threat to mine (especially in areas that I wish to be successful). If I am not “as good as” someone else, I am inadequate. If you read my blog about a month ago (A Beautiful Beatdown), I listed aContinue reading ““What you think of me is none of my business.””

“You Too? Me Too.”

As I get closer to publishing my collection of blogs, I’ve had to start thinking more seriously about my target audience, a title and potential ideas for a cover. I don’t like this part. It’s not in my gift set or why I started writing. Last week I talked to someone who has a degreeContinue reading ““You Too? Me Too.””

I See Those Hands…

Raise your hand if you have ever battled a potentially terminal disease or love someone who has or does? Now raise your hand if you struggle with the disease of addiction or love someone who has or does? And raise a hand if you’ve ever felt tormented by the effects of your own sin/evil/brokenness orContinue reading “I See Those Hands…”

Are All Your Cards On The Table?

Several years ago my husband and I led a Small Group. For those of you who are part of a contemporary church, you probably already know what that is. If you aren’t familiar with the concept, it’s essentially a group of people that meet together on a regular basis and is, um, small. The ideaContinue reading “Are All Your Cards On The Table?”

PEOPLE to the rescue

“Delivering help trumps offering hope any day of the week.” Peyton Manning Blake sent me this quote from a conference he was attending today. Peyton says it better than me, but I swear I was just making this point to a friend yesterday. I was expressing how grateful we are to have people, often peopleContinue reading “PEOPLE to the rescue”
