Armed & Dangerous

In the early 1990’s I went on a mission trip to Costa Rica. I was thrilled at the prospect of learning Spanish and doing life in a completely different culture. My parents decided to surprise me and flew down to spend a week with me and my team. Everyone took turns...

Blessed Assurance

Right after Christmas, my husband flew to Arizona to take a three-week course. We almost never go across the line without first purchasing additional medical insurance. However, because of the holidays, our insurance company was closed prior to Mark’s departure.  I...

In God We Trust

Trust. It’s a big deal. Just ask the wife whose husband has had an affair. Ask the partner who’s been shafted in a business deal. Ask the patient searching his surgeon’s eyes before he is rolled into the operating room. Trust is important. With it great partnerships...

Excuse Me While I Chew

Unsustainable. That word describes the kind of life far too many of us find ourselves living.   As a child, I was duly tutored in proper table etiquette. Don’t talk with a mouthful. Don’t chew with your mouth open. Finish the food in your mouth before adding more....

Crack It Open

The other day, my husband, Mark, and I had a spur-of-the-moment visit from another clergy couple. After getting caught up on the happenings in each other’s lives, we spent time praying for one another’s families and the needs of other families in our community. It was...
