Does anyone know the real me?

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well” (Psalm 139:14).   All our days, we desire to be truly ‘known’. Well, actually, we desire for the best parts within us to be known. The REAL us deep down. The Jesus-follower life that we…

Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly

With all that’s happened in the world as of late, I’ve found myself frequently at the intersection of grief and paralysis. I’m overwhelmed by the devastating effects of racism I know I can’t comprehend on a personal level. I’m disheartened by the fact that every online conversation about any current event seems to devolve into…

God is LOVE

In recent events, all of us have been soberly reminded of how finite our life really is! No one knows the day or the hour…so I have been asking God lately how we can put aside our minor differences so we can link arms to make a difference! His answer is in HIS love.  …

A Search for Freedom

Freedom. How do you write a devotional about freedom in today’s world?  When I started writing this, George Floyd had just been murdered. The world watched in horror as he died. No one could stop it. And within days riots broke out in Minneapolis, and soon across the country. Good folks lost their businesses, their…

The Comparison Voice

I thought comparing myself to others was tough while I was a teenager. Then I became a mom. Turns out as a teenager I was only in the Minor Leagues and now I’ve joined the Major Leagues. Comparing myself to other mommies is a whole new ballgame. Yikes! Just like every other woman entering mommyhood,…

It seems like too much to handle. Having a science background, I like to look at the statistics and graphs and try to figure…

Whose Team are you On?

Correcting and redirecting kids is a huge part of motherhood isn’t it? It’s a big part of being a grandma too. (Although I will admit, the guidelines get more relaxed!) It’s easy to recognize that kids need boundaries and course-correcting because that’s what kids do: they push the boundaries. It’s human nature. I’ve greatly admired…

Panic or Peace

Toilet Paper. I’ve got mine. In fact, I do have more than one package. When my bi-weekly shopping trip found the shelf bare, I panicked. So the next day I took my mom shopping… and I bought two packages. Those shelves were almost empty, too. But did I think of you when I took two?…

Devotion to God

For me, January has always been a month that yields high motivation. It’s a month of resolution and a time most of us expect renewal, or dare I say, rebirth, in some of our rather detrimental habits. I must confess that these past few years, however, have produced a ritual that isn’t the most glorious…

Shut out the Distractions

Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the Lord means safety. Proverbs 29:25 (NLT) My oldest daughter is a cerebral introvert, which means that she processes everything internally. As her extroverted “feeling” mother, I am usually clueless as to what she’s thinking because she doesn’t express her emotions in real time! Recently, God used our…
