On one of our family outings... You know the kind where you just drive to see where you end up? My youngest daughter, Hannah, asked me the question, "Mom, why are you driving down this road?"Read More

You may feel inadequate for what God has called you to do. Do you need more income? You may feel like your marriage is on the rocks. Maybe you have lost your job, or feel like it may happen at any time. Do you need a break? Feel like you're in a constant struggle against something? Is sickness your weakness?Read More
So... how do you get started?
You don't have to take a lot of time. Begin with a Bible verse. Talk about what it means. Ask your kids what they need to pray about, then talk to God about it. You don't need a special formula to pray (talk to God). Just speak to Him as you would talk to your friend.Read More
I'm so excited to share this resource with you! I first heard about this book at the GROW Leader Conference at Church of the Highlands in July. My great friend, Beverly, knew I wanted it.... and she surprised me with it during the conference! Isn't she a great friend?Read More
When my girls were younger, I remember some nights of being so tired that I felt like just going to bed and skipping prayer and Bible reading time with them. I have to admit that there were some nights that I skipped it, but those times were very rare because one of my girls would always say, "Mommy, aren't you going read to me and pray with me?"Read More

It was a new year (2004), and I was recovering from TMJ surgery, a bi-lateral modified condylotomy. My jaw bones had been cut, my mouth wired shut, along with lots of physical therapy to re-learn how to use my mouth. In some ways, I was better... but something wasn't quite right.Read More

What are some things we know about preschoolers? They like to play, and ask lots of questions. They are easily upset and self-centered. We also know that they are quick to believe and want to feel big and important! Sound like anyone you know? (insert laughter)Read More
You’ve seen them on the catwalk and all over the media.. super models displaying the latest clothing and hairstyles. A model is an example to follow or imitate. Whether you realize it or not, you are a model... you are modeling Jesus Christ. This is why it is so important to lead as Jesus would lead...Read More
Preschoolers are so excited to learn about Jesus. I remember teaching a class of two year olds about how Jesus used to be a little boy. Then I said to Wyatt, “Hey, Wyatt, you’re a little boy too!” Then I continued on with the lesson about when Jesus was a little boy. At the conclusion of class, Wyatt’s mother came to pick him up. As he was leaving the room, I quickly asked him what he learned during class. Wyatt was so excited to answer! He threw his hands up in the air and yelled, “I am Jesus!”Read More
