(Don’t Be A) Jerk for Jesus

I just returned from a wonderful event called CPE (Christian Product EXPO). In a nutshell, this is a time for retailers to view new potential products for their stores. My goal, as an author representing my new book, was to do everything in my power to get a book in their hands, hoping and prayingContinue reading “(Don’t Be A) Jerk for Jesus”

Glitchy

I finally came up with a word to describe what my insides feel like these days: glitchy. Actually, I am not even sure it’s a real word, but the experience is real — 100%. My life appears normal and some of the time it mimics normal, when all of a sudden there is a break,Continue reading “Glitchy”

Resentment Release Day: April 21, 2020

The stubborn resistance in me is palpable. I know that I know that I know that I need to write this down, but my insides are squirming because, well, you’ll see. I don’t think it has taken me this long to view this situation from this perspective because it wasn’t obvious before now. It tookContinue reading “Resentment Release Day: April 21, 2020”

Waiting for Christmas (to be over?)

We are in the Advent season. In this case, Advent is a religious term meaning “expectant waiting”, in case you have heard that term your whole life and are embarrassed to admit that you don’t know what that actually means. Specifically, it refers to the days of December leading up to Christmas. I love howContinue reading “Waiting for Christmas (to be over?)”

My “past-life”

In my “past-life”, August was always an exciting month. For many years our church was a part of being a host site for the annual Global Leadership Summit. A couple of those years I was able to travel and attend the live event in Chicago that was simulcast around the world. The energy of thousandsContinue reading “My “past-life””

Turbo resentments

I am a spontaneous person. That is sometimes good. Sometimes not so good. When I write, it is a little of both. As a general rule, I sit on my couch in the morning, praying and reading and listening to what God is directing me to write about. It is usually more than obvious. OnceContinue reading “Turbo resentments”

“Stepping In It”

As long as I live I will never run out of material to write about because doggonit–I just keep “stepping in it.” I guess I can view it as “job security.” Every once in awhile, though, I pleasantly surprise myself by being aware of what I stepped in before God has to use a bullhorn.Continue reading ““Stepping In It””

Resentment Machine

When I write a blog, it usually is a result of something I have read in the morning that I feel God is prompting me to write about. Most of the time it is a direct result of something I am battling with myself ,and you, my dear friends, get to be the victims ofContinue reading “Resentment Machine”

The “Tuck-In”

Most of these thoughts occurred to me last night after I’d been asleep for an hour, so don’t hold it against me if they end up sounding ridiculous. Here’s how it went: One of my kids woke me because he couldn’t sleep and wanted to be “tucked in.” So, I sent him back to bedContinue reading “The “Tuck-In””

“Trigger-Happy”

Does anyone else have “triggers?”. I remember a superficial trigger I used to have when I was pregnant with my oldest child. Before that time, I was an exercise and health-food Nazi. In college, while all the girls were ordering pizza at 10:00 at night, I was eating my Snackwell Cookies (which may or mayContinue reading ““Trigger-Happy””
