Growing in Faith

Saving grace

Does anybody say grace before a meal anymore? Growing up, this was a ritual that occurred at our dinner table. Every. Single. Night. I’m sure the intentions for starting this tradition were admirable, but by the time I was a teenager, singing grace at dinner {yes, there was a tune to ours} was a rote exercise. I took about a…

Candy Land wisdom

As my daughter unfolded the new Candy Land game from the box, the anticipation was building in her young little helper. Avery waited…but really he just wanted to get his hands on the spinner. I could see it in his eyes. Actually, his little 3-year-old anxiety was wanting to touch the spinner, the game pieces, and the board. All…

Becoming an exoneree-a captive set free. The story of Darryl Burton.

An exoneree is defined as one cleared of blame, a captive set free or to be free from a burden.  Darryl Burton is an exoneree.  He was falsely accused and served 24 years in a tough Missouri State Penitentiary before he was finally cleared and released.  It was a long, hard-fought battle, but not nearly as difficult as Darryl’s…

Finding thankfulness in time for Thanksgiving

1 more page of empty lines left in my journal. I don’t know about you, but my journal is my lifeblood – to process, pray and simply record. So this nearing-the-end thing is a cause for panic, a race to the nearest Barnes & Noble. But it’s also a time to reminisce. As I turn back to page 1, memories come alive: On Jan. 17th,…

Chairs and tables and sharpies….oh my!

My kitchen table is a little like me. It started out new and fresh. But, then you live a little and before you know it you’re covered in scratches and permanent stains. At one point, I got so sick of seeing the mess that I hid the table and chairs in the garage. There, I said, “it can be used as a junky garage table, that’s all it’s…

We are who God made us to be

I’m all about encouraging you! You are a masterpiece! When God made you, God really DID break the mold. There is no other person who is like you. Knowing that we are unique should humble us. It goes even further, He can use everybody He creates. God can look at you and can see what you will become before you have actually become it.…

When you don’t know what to do

I may have made this look way easier than it seems. Perhaps I have mislead you. Stepping out on faith should be easy, but rarely ever is. Our minds get in the way of our hearts. I wonder if the Bible greats like Noah, Moses, David, Paul, the many major and minor prophets, went through the same logical thought processes. I would like to think…

Start the day out right

In the morning, while it was still very dark, Jesus got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed. (Mark 1:35) Henri Nouwen said, “It makes no sense to preach the Gospel, when I have allowed no time for my own conversation.” I have read time and time again about the importance of eating breakfast. Many of us seem satisfied…

Shortcuts

It was great! The ultimate shortcut when I was a student took me and my two girl friends right past a bakery on the way to class. We’d stop for our favorite muffins or chocolate-iced long johns, then leisurely finish the walk to our junior high school. Yummy, fun, and we were oh-so-cool in our bell bottom jeans. Until. . .one day when…
