As my husband and I are studying Pastor Craig Groeschel’s “Hope in the Dark” Bible plan on YouVersion, I’m reminded that nothing I ask God – nothing – is too difficult for Him to hear. Our Heavenly Father wants us to come to Him in full disclosure. I waffle in my conversations with God at… Continue reading Like a Child
Apparently January 26th holds quite a few “big memories” in my life. Six years ago today. This photograph, our last “happy picture” together quickly taken by our son (literally on our way out the door), is etched in my mind.

In preparation for New Community Church’s five16 event this afternoon serving over 300 households in our city, I wanted to share the scripture motivating us to serve our neighbors with love. It’s my sincere hope you will lean into the Bible, My Friend. Even if you don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus yet, especially… Continue reading Dear Friend
