Suffering

Valiant: not based on outcome

December 6, 2018

I squeezed the mic tightly. And then a little tighter. I looked out over the sea of crowd, but it was all just random blurs of color through my tears. I swallowed, looked down, closed my eyes, and squeezed again. But I just couldn’t do it…how could I?   The music began and filled my…

The Ache of Life 

November 8, 2018

      I look out the window streaked with misty condensation. The coolness from outside combating the cozy warmness from within. The leaves are drifting delicately from the trees, becoming more barren with each passing day. The ground, a blanket of pine needles and an array of colors.   My soul aches. An ache…

Before You Offer Advice to a Hurting Person

October 25, 2018

  We live in a world filled with hurting people.   If you pay attention, you see many who are facing tremendous pain and loss. Depression, cancer, miscarriages, heart failure, relational issues, divorce. It seems as if pain is more prone to affect lives than ever before. But many of us are unequipped to know…

Abuse Doesn’t Have to Destroy You…But This Will

August 22, 2018

Abuse is terrible and can be devastating. And I’m passionate about helping those who are hurting to find healing from it.  I’ve blogged about sexual abuse here and here. But the actual abuse is usually not what causes the horrible destruction in an individual’s life…It’s the aftermath of it. The enemy will do everything in his power to blind them from the…

When God’s Answer is “No”

June 27, 2018

If you haven’t discovered it yet, you will eventually face a specific time in your life when God seems to say “No” to your prayer. Or when He allows you to face a life-changing difficulty. No amount of begging, praying, or faith-claiming changes the outcome. The physical healing just doesn’t happen. A wonderful job opportunity…

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.  …
