The Good News

Nov 25, 2019

As we surrender our lives to God and follow His leadership in our lives, there is one issue that seems to come up late in the process. Just as in my married life, where it took Hank and I 15-20 years to get to the point of no longer taking his anger at me and […]

How Well Do We Know Ourselves?

Aug 20, 2018

How well do we know ourselves? Our own motivations? Our own deepest desires? Our own true selves, our souls? I’ve been thinking lately about some of the inner “characters” who might be ruling our minds without us knowing it consciously. Do you, like me, have an Inner Critic whose voice is loud and clear on […]

Setting Our Sights Too Low

Oct 02, 2017

If we cling to the relationship with God that we have… If we cling to our beliefs rather than building the relationship with God… If we settle for a small change, but forget that Jesus is a radical teacher even today… If we’re not willing to let God lead us and we still are in […]

Our Minds. God’s Mind

May 08, 2017

  When my friend Don asked me recently at lunch how I was doing, I laced the fingers of my two hands together and said, “the left hand represents my mind; the right, God’s mind. I am somewhere between these two, depending on who I am listening to right now. The more I listen to […]

You Called; I Came.

Oct 17, 2016

I think of the Lord as sowing seeds, inviting us all our lives long. It is up to up whether we hear his invitation. It’s us to us whether we answer his call. But the invitations are always being issued to each of us: to freedom, to your true self, to love, to truth, to […]


Sep 26, 2016

It is so interesting to me to go from feeling like a totally separate, independent person to having a seamless relationship with God where I can no longer tell the difference between the way he thinks and the way I think. When I first surrendered my life to God I used to trade things off […]

Kairos vs. Chronos Time

Jan 25, 2016

One of the things that I have learned in following Christ is that timing is everything. And that without an inner ear tuned to what he is asking of me right now, I can violate his timing by being too early or too late or I can miss the boat totally. It is only in […]

Be Still and Know That I am God

Dec 21, 2015

“Be still and know that I am God.” That is a challenge in this busy, busy holiday season. But at all times there is a reason that we are asked in Psalm 46:10 to still ourselves, to quiet our minds, to simplify our lives: we cannot access the divine wisdom within us, the “still, small […]

God is Everywhere

Nov 03, 2014

The truth about our lives is so simple: we live every moment in the presence of God. God is present in every event, every plant/rock/person/animal. God is the interweaving of all life, the glue, if you will, that holds everything together, that connects all elements in the universe. God is the Creator of all and […]

Embrace the Paradoxes

Aug 11, 2014

I was filled with joy at just being alive and at the same time filled with sorrow because my husband was suffering from a recurrence of cancer –just three months after he had been declared cancer free. What was so astonishingly new to me was that the sorrow I was feeling did not diminish the […]
