Almost Wordless Wednesday: Thelma Wells, the Uniqueness of Prayer

How many of you have ever been to Women of Faith? How many of you have heard of Thelma Wells? Also known as Mama T. I had the awesome privilege of hostessing Mrs Wells when she spoke at E-Women in Tulsa several years ago. This woman has a mothering spirit so strong that I wanted to crawl into…

Why Redemption’s Heart; Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Sometimes ………………..there are no good choices. ………………………Sometimes ……………………………..life throws us for a loop. Sometimes, I feel like I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place. 2003 was just such a time. The most interesting thing to me is while the year was stormy and my heart felt as if it had been broken into…

My Mother’s Garden

I’m in Chittenango New York this week visiting my mother. Even at 70, her gardens are still some of the most beautiful gardens I’ve ever seen.

My Stage Fright is Gone

Friday Funny: Southern Women Make Great Evangelists

I had a chance to meet one of my favorite Christian singers a few years back,  but I was too busy evangelizing one of the volunteers and I missed the meet and greet. You see, I had taken my family to see this man perform at a local church and when I walked in with my boys…

Pondering Peace

Luke 2:19 “But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.” Have you ever been so blown away by God that all you could do was ponder? If I were to sum up my feelings and my heart over the past week, that would be it. I’m treasuring all that I…
