The Adventure of Saying “Yes” ~ Guest Post

One of my new favorite things is introducing this wonderful community to new writers. It is a delight to share the words of Lesley Crawford today. She is a faithful member of this community even though she might be new to you. How I wish I knew her in real life...

Redemption’s Journey to the Cross

Redemption’s Journey to the Cross

Surrounding my patio is a thin strip of dirt. Big enough to dream of planting, but not so big that I will become overwhelmed in the planning. Digging my hands into the wet soil, with its richness and potential, is a love that has followed me since childhood. Knowing...

Monthly Musings ~ March 2019 + Book review & Giveaway

As I'm sitting here typing out these words to share with you all, the rain is pounding against the windows with no intention of letting up anytime soon. Spring is announcing its arrival with flooding rains, which is typical for Ohio. I'm praying it brings us a step...

The Walk to the Cross

The Walk to the Cross

Life is nothing but a journey. A one foot in front of the other endeavor that leads us down familiar and sometimes not so familiar paths. Choices guide our steps toward certainty as we focus on God or doubt when we believe we can find the way on our own. I write about...

Surprise! God Has Your Best Interest at Heart- Guest Post

It is such a treat to introduce another featured writer to you. Michele Morin and I have "known" each other for at least three years. We share the fact that we are "boy moms" and have become friends across the inter webs. Michele is not only a beautiful writer, but...

Creation’s Journey to the Cross

Creation’s Journey to the Cross

My morning wake up call is more enjoyable these days. The sun makes its appearance earlier and even has decided to show off. Streaks of bright orange paired with deep reds are just what my soul needs to wake up out of the winter slumber. This past weekend we moved our...

Come As You Are

Come As You Are

Tomorrow we begin the walk to the cross. Each intentional step we take is our chance to walk in the footsteps of Jesus. The invitation is always there signaling us to "come as you are." The choice is up to us. I can't help but embrace these next forty days as my own...

Monthly Musings ~ February 2019

The shortest month has a way of feeling like the longest. The twenty-eight days of February have a way of wrapping their beginnings and endings around me. The long and the short are just that- long and short, but have you thought about the possibiities each day might...

The Call to Lay Your Isaac Down

The Call to Lay Your Isaac Down

There are times when you connect with another writer and in the process discover all the things you have in common. Linda Stoll is one of those people. Even though our friendship spans across internet miles, we find how God continues to lead us on similar paths. It is...

Mountaintop Vistas or Valley Floors

Mountaintop Vistas or Valley Floors

You answer our prayers with amazing wonders    and with awe-inspiring displays of power.    You are the righteous God who helps us like a father.    Everyone everywhere looks to...

The Road to Becoming

The Road to Becoming

I wonder if the road to becoming is paved with patience and grace. Are baby steps allowed and even wrong turns? When you walk with a friend on this road, do you let them set the pace or do you pull them along based on what you think is best? Each question above is one...

Monthly Musings ~ January 2019

We are just shy of the end of the first month of 2019. The fresh, squeaky-clean feeling that marks the beginning of a new year is becoming a little stale. The dreams and goals that were written in our best handwriting as of January 1 may look a little ragged as we...

Songs of Hope

Songs of Hope

Life twists and turns and sometimes, when we are lucky, follows a straight path with little deviation. My son, Nicholas, knows about this journey called life. A year ago, he faced some unexpected and difficult news. But he didn't let things end there. I watched,...

All For HIS Glory??

All For HIS Glory??

In the year 2012, I began a journey of writing. A few words here and there and frightened hesitancy each time I was ready to hit publish. This was the path I walked before sending each post into the world. Writing for His glory was my focus and my heart for the "why"...

Coffee and Conversation

Coffee and Conversation

It was Monday night. The temperature was slowly bottoming out and there was anywhere from 8 to 12 inches of snow on the ground. The coffee shop was well lit and welcoming. Sweet coffee aromas wafted among the group of women who were gathering. Tables were pushed...
