Worried What Others Think Of You? Get Yourself Free Of That Trap!!!

  You have two options in life:  March to the beat of your own drum or NOT.   For a country obsessed with ‘selfies’ we are a people terrified of being ourselves. What if my friends don’t like my hair, my shoes, my furniture? Easy, get new friends. We’re constantly fluctuating between finding ourselves and…

You Don’t Want To Limit God, Do You?

  Are you at your spiritual BEST? When I’m in Africa I feel like my spiritual life gets expanded about 1000%. I don’t know how you’d ever measure it, but I know I feel more spiritually energized and effective. I want to feel this way all the time, even when I’m back at home in…

Praying For Fruit

This morning we are on our way for 9 weeks of ministry in Ghana. We’re asking that God make it fruitful. We can’t wait to see our friends there. I feel like I know a little of what Paul felt when he was away from the believers he had shared so much with. We miss…

A list gets stuff out of my head and into the world where I can quit ‘feeling’ it floating between my synapses, and worrying my neurons about the hows and whens of Getting Things Done.…

Missing Kate, A Story of Blogosphere Friendship

I didn’t know, not until today, that I felt so close to someone I’d never even met. I didn’t know it until I saw the actual words declaring that her blog had been DELETED. Gone. Poof! Mine was a physical response, like someone hitting me hard in the stomach and knocking all the breath from…

We’re leaving early Friday afternoon and going to a Beach House. We’ll barbecue steaks and play a cool new Deck Building…
