Why Silence Isn’t Always Submission

April 25, 2018

Sexual abuse. I wonder how many of us have been affected in some way by this ugly monster. Your sister. Your friend. Your parent. Your cousin. (I wrote an earlier blog regarding sexual abuse and felt I needed to follow up on it.)   It’s time the church takes a different approach in dealing with sexual…

How the Church Often Fails the Victimized

January 18, 2018

  Sexual abuse/molestation is painful and ugly. It hurts. Deeply. Sexual abuse is one of the greatest violations that can be committed to a person, especially to an unassuming and innocent child. Sexual molestation and abuse can be extremely damaging, yet, the church has for many years failed those who’s lives have been affected by…

Why Physical Healing Isn’t Always Biblical

December 1, 2017

  When it comes to physical healing, our family has encountered nearly every view regarding it. In spite of that, we’re still learning and seeking the heart of our Father regarding physical infirmities and healing.   One of our passions is to reach out to those who’ve been deeply hurt or disillusioned by a wrong…

What Suffering and Death Teaches Me About Thanksgiving 

November 24, 2017

So yesterday was Thanksgiving Day. You know, the day family, friends and communities gather together, share with each other, and express the gratitude of their hearts. But thanksgiving is more than a day we celebrate. Much more. It’s even greater than the act of giving thanks. You see, we can learn more about God when…

The Beauty of Brokenness 

November 3, 2017

  For all my married life, I’ve faced the many unspoken expectations from others. It can be hard to get away from the scrutiny and assumptions that concur when you’re living in a “glass house.” But with this reality comes the awareness of the greater responsibility to not be a stumbling block to anyone.  …

How Your “Why Me?” is Destroying You

May 19, 2017

  Why am I facing this health struggle? Why, God, did You have to take him? Haven’t I went through enough? Why do we have to struggle so much financially? Why does this have to happen now?     I don’t know about you, but I’ve personally struggled with my own set of “Why, me?” questions. Isn’t it…

Is God’s Love Dangerous?

March 13, 2017

What could possibly be dangerous about God’s love. God’s love crosses all barriers, knows no limits, and never ceases. His love is completely unfathomable. So incredibly deep we can’t even begin to comprehend it. God’s love is marvelously redemptive,  sufficiently sustainable,  remarkably unfailing  and unchangeably constant towards each of us. I cry when I begin to grasp…

The Ebb and Flow of Life: When Your Heart is Breaking…

January 26, 2017

  I watched the ebb and flow of the ocean. Another wave came crashing in. As it receded, gone were the footprints a life had just made. Heartlessly swept away as if it never existed. But in the grandeur scheme of life, it was awesomely beautiful. Part of the Creator’s bigger plan.   I see…

The flight that made me ask, “Is there really beauty in humanity?”

January 11, 2017

Real people. Real hard circumstances. Whenever fallible humans and painful situations collide…watch out! What you will find is lots of ugly, broken pieces. You will find tension-filled, and sometimes even hate-breathing humanity.   Last week, I made a brief trip to drive my parents home to Florida. I was only going to be gone overnight,…
