Miracles Big or Small

Reports came out last week that Bible scholars believe the legendary Ark of the Covenant from the Old Testament accounts may have been moved to Africa after it was taken out of Israel.  The Ark is said to be a gold-covered wooden chest containing two stone tablets on...

The Power of Love

When I first heard of the death of a young American while trying to share the gospel to one of the most isolated tribes in the world, I was intrigued, yet not surprised.  Missionaries have been sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ for centuries, many meeting horrible...

Great Awakening

Some fifty years ago, 85% of American children attended church on a regular basis.  Today, only 4% attend regularly.  When the pastor made that statement, I remembered my own upbringing in church, particularly my “Jesus Movement” days.  During the early ‘70’s, I was...

Your Real Worth

I was self-conscious when I was little – crooked teeth, “pleasingly plump” (as my mother would say), and had a fat nose (I tried putting a close-pin on my nose while I slept once … then yanked it off in seconds).  Just felt I was never pretty enough, smart enough,...

The Persecuted Church

I’m like a child when it rains … I don’t know what to do with myself.  I was channel surfing during recently when I ran across a movie I hadn’t seen – “Paul: Apostle of Christ.”  (For total disclosure, I actually picked this movie because Jim Caviezel held a...

How Is It Possible?

  Have you ever met a person and heard their story and wondered, “There’s no way that can happen … how is it possible?”  Well, several years ago a friend gave me a ticket to hear a motivational speaker at one of Dallas’ largest hotel venues.  I looked forward to...

One Person’s Impact

I awoke yesterday morning to learn of the passing of Rev. Billy Graham, age 99.  Over the past several years, as he grew older and frailer, it was evident that his time on earth was drawing near to death’s doorstep.  I grew up listening to his sermons and attending...

The Rest of the Story

When I was little I remember listening to the radio (a lot), being a middle-class family, and probably because television was such a “new” media and unaffordable to most people.  My parents particularly liked a show called The Rest of the Story, hosted by Paul...

Foundation of Faith

We live in a world that is ideologically divided on many levels.  Sadly, violence seems to be the rule rather than the exception, with increasing persecution of Christians worldwide. That’s exactly what occurred on Palm Sunday.  A terrorist strapped with explosives...

Three Days Can Make a Difference

I was privileged to attend and speak at a women’s conference last weekend.  The camp was a Salvation Army encampment/retreat and it was just that – a retreat from the cares of the world.  The women attending were from all walks of life, yet shared scars in their lives...

Restoration from a Broken Life

A lot of people cross my path … all shapes, sizes, genders, those in good times and not so good times.  I’ve seen lives spin out of control, falling into the pits of despair, and I’ve seen the miraculous happen as those same people walk the journey of restoration....

What’s Good About Friday

I have worked my entire life. Nine-to-five, 40 hour work weeks. It didn’t take long to realize what I looked forward to was Friday. Then the term T.G.I.F. (“Thank Goodness It’s Friday”) became popular. Every long work week had a bright spot to it – Friday. When I...
