Hey Ma! Can I keep It?

I’m hiding in my room today. I actually have the flu, but I’m also hiding from my gardens. I had great plans to write about my fall gardens and the beautiful colors that are coming out. It is time to weed back my summer beds so that my fall mums can bloom. Unfortunately, I believe my mums are…

Blog Tour: Between a Rock and a Grace Place, Carol Kent

I have a confession to make. I had originally agreed to give away a free copy of Between A Rock and a Grace Place in exchange for posting this interview.  I got the book and started reading it and I couldn’t put it down. Not only could I not put it down, this book is so…

Forgiveness: Choosing Joy

“Forgiveness allows you to lead your own life and choose a joyful existence rather than giving it over to the control of others less qualified.” Andy Andrews – This was the facebook status of a friend of  mine today.  I have a stack of books in my office by Andy Andrews. I haven’t read them…

Crazy Horses, The Osmonds, and the Tulsa State Fair

The fair is coming! The fair is coming! — The Tulsa State Fair is opening one week from today on September 30,2010. I absolutely love going to the fair; the concerts, the games, the rides, the food, the wild life, the animal shows, and everything else. Third Day is coming this year and of course…

Wordless Wednesdays: Fishing

 Isaiah 40:31 (New International Version)  31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.        They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.   We are weary and in want of a reprieve. A place in the woods where we can enjoy God’s creation…

Baggage by Nicole Johnson

While putting together this new blog format and platform, I ran across my Nicole Johnson files. I first discovered Nicole when I was at Women of Faith back in 2004. Most of her sketches were humorous that year and being of the bulimic mindset that if a little is good well then the whole thing must be…

Who Are You? The Holy Ghost Jr?

  Pee Wee Herman had a classic kid line in his television shows, “I know you are, but what am I?” Do you remember that chant from the play ground? I do. It was the ultimate comeback, usually spoken by a kid who’d just been called a name. I know you are, is his shield…

In The Hands of God

  I’ve had quite the week.   DOWN: How do I describe promoting a concert for three months only to find out the Non Profit putting on the fundraiser never had a signed contract?   UP: I was upset over this deal gone bad when a  friend calls me back – from the airport mind you – while he’s…

Lost in the Hootsuite

  It was bound to happen, one click and all of my social networks collided — I mean merged. Within seconds I have new blog posts, new Facebook updates and new twitter announcements, all because hootsuite is really that cool and I am really that much of a computer dork.   I honestly didn’t mean for them…

Let’s Talk About it: Priorities

   I don’t know about you, but I tend to spend a good portion of my day focusing on what I do well and neglecting what I think I don’t do well. I love to study, teach Bible Studies, write, work with artists, and promote events for charity. All of those are great things it’s…

Let’s Talk About it: Why are you a ………

In yesterday’s post I commented that I choose to be a Christian because it works for me. That comment both confused and upset a few people. I didn’t mean that nearly as flip or me-centric as it may have sounded. And I’m sure it does pose the inevitable question of “So if it stops working…
