Healing Does Happen: Our Road to Freedom
We both felt the nudge of God's spirit to slow down and get honest. But we didn't. We kept making a lie our refuge. Eventually, Bob got to the point where he had to tell me the whole truth. He did, and we want to share those words with you in the short video below.
8 Ways the Holy Spirit Helps When Marriage Is Painful
Has your marriage ever been in a place where you barely knew how to pray? Mine has. My husband’s fierce battle with lust and pornography once knocked me to my knees. At times, the only prayer that formed on my lips was, Lord, help! And He did. God has written a redemption story in the marriage
Does God Really Care What I Wear?
Let’s imagine you and I meet for coffee and tea to discuss the highest purpose for our lives. (Yes, a big topic to cover at a coffee shop!) We might eventually arrive at the idea that we exist to glorify and enjoy God. Glorify • to make glorious by bestowing honor, praise, and admiration. We

There’s an appropriate human response to God’s divine providence. Do people see this quality in you? I’ll get right to the good news about that because the headlines provide us with plenty of the bad. Are you ready? The next setback may be God’s set up for a comeback. Of course, it’s also possible that
Do The Next Right Thing.
People Are Watching You Do The Next Right Thing. (Or not.) I needed a massage. Ok, let me correct that sentence: I wanted a massage. Somehow it seemed like just the comfort I needed to give me the “umph” to get through yet another week of pandemic decision- and opinion-fatigue. But I’d travelled outside of
