What Can You Know?

Last month my husband and I spent a week in Chattanooga studying 1 John, 2 John, and 3 John at a Precept Ministries International Spring Study Program.  I love these intensive study programs!  As part of the study, we made list of what we can know according to 1 John.

Long Time Waiting

If you have been praying for someone… If you have loved ones you wish would turn from their sin… If it seems to have been so long… I want to encourage you.  Don’t give up!  Trust God.  Pray without ceasing.  You are not alone. God hears your prayers.  My mom was a bitter, abusive drunk.…

Stop the Gossiping 

I’ve posted about this before. I speak as a mom who has experienced the death of my son.  But it seems not everyone got the message.  A young man in our community died. Two in the past week in fact. One, a college student, was shot in a robbery gone bad. The other, a 13…

Be There

This morning I packed a bag not knowing where I would be tonight. Would I drive back home or stay in a hotel? I left my house at 7 am. I drove five hours. To attend a funeral. Friends of ours lost their Andrew this week. 22 years old. Full of life. Then gone. I…

We all need recovery 

I have a friend I’ve been praying for and watching go through some stuff. Waiting for her to see the truth of the junk in her life. She called this morning ready to change it. Ready to move forward in her healing/recovery.  Folks, we are all in need of recovery from something. Maybe for you…
