Transformational Tears

Facing the terminal diagnosis of our unborn son, I learned what it meant to cry. Don’t get me wrong, I had cried before, but never like this. This was different. This cry was deep from within my soul – words that I didn’t know how to express, prayers I couldn’t pray,...

In the Stillness of the Night

In the Stillness of the Night

"That night is forever etched in our minds. Everything was so eerily still and quiet…the engine had shut off, the lights were out, and all four of you were silent. Then Jane, your dad, and you began to stir…you were all in so much pain.” Those words from my eldest...

Before Jesus warns of the situations coming in the last days in Matthew 24:4-14, He says, "Take heed no one deceives you."  He also says of these trying times, "See that you are not troubled."  Troubled can also be translated as shaken.  We are to remain steadfast and...

Fits and Gifts

It was the evening before my son’s 10th birthday. A busy week of balancing work, home, kids, and church commitments. I knew his birthday was coming – we had been counting down the days for weeks! However, time seemed to fly, and I was not prepared for his big day. I...

Forget Me Not

Forget Me Not

I was on my way out the door, in a hurry to get to the store before the storm hit. I didn’t have a grocery list, so I recited the things we needed over and over in my head so as not to forget. By the time I got into the car, I realized I needed to write things down; I...
