Jesus is Leading

My family is full of musicians – they sing, play instruments, and harmonize. Whenever my adult kids are home, there is singing throughout the house. It’s one of my favorite sounds. Dance has always been my preferred art form. I’ve been known to make my family laugh by breaking out unexpected dance moves at the…

One Wedding • Three Lessons

25 days ago, I stood in front of God and my loved ones to say “I Do” to my best friend. Being a hopeless romantic, I had longed for a love story and envisioned this day for many, many years. As I reflect back now, just a few weeks later, it’s not the wedding day…

Let Your Words Heal Not Wound

As many of you know, my wife and I have a teenage daughter. She is a wonderful girl yet challenging. Those who have/had teenagers can attest to how their moods can change in a flash and how that moodiness can ripple through a family. It’s easy to let a scowl, tone of voice, or harsh…

Stop Worrying & Start Trusting God

When I’m in the middle of chaos, it’s so easy for me to jump on the downward spiral and get swept away. I’ll be halfway down in the pit before I realize I’ve completely lost my peace. I’m working on that. You know we’re moving into our first house, and it’s been… interesting. I am…

SO WHAT ABOUT THAT JESUS

Last year made me do something strange: A character study of Jesus.  I write stage plays and musicals. When I embark on a new project, character studies are the first things I do.  Who is this character? What’s the character’s motivation?What are the character’s tendencies and quirks?  When I figure out who the person is,…

You're Not Alone in Your Struggles

God Is With You in the Midst of Struggles

I have so much fun talking with you.  Most afternoons, I share “One Truth” on my radio show as a daily dose of hope and inspiration. Not too long ago, I shared one that said, “Never be afraid or embarrassed to struggle! We’ve all been in a struggle. There is absolutely no shame in working hard…

When Your Plan Isn’t God’s Plan

We had plans. They weren’t fancy— but still…there was a plan.  After work, my husband and I were to take care of some adulting stuff—mapping out finances, thinking through schedules, and making dinner— including the beets and carrots that were freshly harvested from our backyard garden. We went to bed, knowing the next day’s plan…and…
