Grace and Truth for When You Feel Like You Don’t Belong

Have you ever walked into a room full of people and felt like you were completely alone? I have. Many, many times. I remember driving to the women’s Christmas party our church was hosting one year and giving myself a pep talk just so…

Tuning Into The Love Of God

Feeling the Love of God Through Music

Do you feel you can’t grasp or feel Jesus’ love in your heart? I struggled with this most of my life, but I learned that He’s been calling out to me all the while, and I just didn’t recognize His voice. I hope sharing…

Grace and Truth and The Shades of Love

The shades of love… if you’re wondering, I’m not talking about the 80’s dance music or lingerie. I’m talking about the varying degrees and different definitions we have for love.…

When your life is blessed and stressed

When Your Life Is Blessed & Stressed

There’s been a bit more conflict than normal at our house lately. My kids usually get along pretty well. We don’t generally have door-slamming, and no big fights where we’re screaming harsh words at each other or throwing fists. I’m glad we don’t have…

Grace & Truth & The God Who Sees Me

Do you ever feel left out or forgotten? Like if you disappeared the whole world would just go on without you? Okay, maybe your family needs you, but your church family wouldn’t notice, or your work place wouldn’t care? Maybe your school or your…

Walking Forward Through The Unknown

Walking Forward Through The Unknown

Last year felt like a year of extremes for me. The highs were really high and the lows were really low. There were wonderful surprises, but there was also sadness and loss. The saying, “We don’t know what tomorrow will bring.” feels like an…

How Uncomfortable are You Willing to Get for Your Healing?

The other day, while I was sitting at a coffee shop writing, a shooting pain went through my neck. It was an uncomfortable experience, and I was rather impressed at my ability to injure myself without doing anything. I went home and stretched, massaged,…

Grace and truth for your prayer life

Grace and Truth for Your Prayer Life

How’s your prayer life been lately? God has really been convicting me about mine lately, so when I clicked over to read Diane’s post last Friday, I felt like it had been written just for me.…

What God taught me about forgiving others through betrayal

What God Taught Me About Forgiving Others Through Betrayal

I thought I could trust her. She was my friend and my confidant. We shared everything. It still stings, but betrayal always does.  In my heart, I was crushed because the place where I had been able to be myself for years was no…

My winning battle with health anxiety

My (Winning) Battle with Health Anxiety

I’ve always been drawn to science, particularly physiology and how God designed our bodies to work. I was the weird kid who loved dissections in school, and who had no problem discussing my vet clinic work experiences in graphic detail at the dinner table…

Grace and Truth For When You’re Seeking Jesus

I shared a little bit of the chaos that is my life last week. It would be fair to say that I’m still in the midst of it all. Which is probably why Marva’s post from last week spoke right to my heart.…

Cultivating My Life

The Ways I Want My Life To Look, And The Truth Of The Gospel

This past weekend, my husband and I went on a one-night marriage retreat. There was a lot of material that was covered, but there was one lesson that stuck out to me. About if our marriages are an advertisement of the Gospel. Hmmmm… how…

When It Rains It Pours – Grace and Truth Link Up

Our internet was hacked. We pay for 21 meg, we were getting like 0.2. Someone else was eating up the rest of it. After figuring out what was wrong, I changed the password and the problem was solved… Then my husband’s computer that has…

When Mother Doesn't Know Best

Oh No He Didn’t! …When Mother Doesn’t Know Best

The off-handed comment was followed by laughter as the two guys exchanged looks. The only purpose to that remark could have been to rub salt in the wound and I could feel the anger building in my teenage son who was standing next to…

Grace and Truth for Your Quiet Time

When my twins were little finding some one-on-one time with Jesus was… well, difficult to say the least. Quiet time? That was almost laughable. I had four children ages five and under, so I learned to work with what I had. But I definitely…

The things you find in the waiting

3 Things You Find In The Waiting

I am not good at waiting. I will never pray for patience, because when you ask for that, it is almost like begging for waiting, because you need patience when you… wait. I don’t mind traffic, I usually don’t mind lines at the grocery…
