My Story

How do we find freedom and healing? I was broken and lost. Hurting so much. Though I smiled and conversed, I felt isolated and alone. I hungered for love to find me, connect with me and rescue me from the anger and depression I often experienced. For years, my only peace and joy came through spending time… Read more »

Fighting Against the Enemy

It was one of those days. Nothing bad had really happened, just some minor growing pains between me and my daughter. But it wasn’t fun and I hate feeling disconnected from the people I love. Unfortunately, that comes with teen territory—–their transition from childhood to adulthood with parents trying to hang on and let go at… Read more »

The Ultimate Identity Theft

I went on a run this morning in the blistering heat (ran through the tree-shaded historical section of town and hit every front yard sprinkler I could find). I passed one house and thought, “Oh, they’re going to have a yard sale.”With the next glance, I realized the items piling around the house and creeping across the… Read more »

How often have we proudly proclaimed, “I’m a sinner, saved by grace!” The problem with that belief (in its present tense form) is that it is in error. It is not Biblical. It has become a tradition of men,… Read more »

The Three Amigos

Do you want to know who God is to me? How he found me in the darkest places and brought such freedom to my life? Good. I thought you might. I’m thirsty for knowledge and for freedom. I suck up podcasts like a starving person. I could easily be a conference junkie, traveling anywhere and… Read more »

The Great Exchange

Shame steals. It’s insidious. Slimy. It relentlessly seeks any cracks in our core being. Hunting for the fault lines. Nourishing the lies that we aren’t good enough. That our failures define us. It finds those fears and erodes, pushing and wedging itself in deeper and deeper. Feeding the erroneous belief that our happiness is unequivocally… Read more »
