Prayer Is a Peace-Giving Gift

  Many decades ago, one of my college friends gave me a small picture that has meant a great deal to me. There is nothing remarkable about it from an artistic standpoint, but it has given me great comfort during some important times nonetheless. In fact, not long ago, I asked the Lord for direction

Maybe the toughest part of following God faithfully is trusting He is good through very hard seasons. God is for us, even when it is hard and even when the hard lasts so much longer than we ever imagined. He intends what hurts for the good!

Joseph: “God intended it for good.”

  Genesis 50:20 Although Joseph spent most of his life in Egypt, he represents Jewish manhood at its best . He had clean hands and a pure heart, yet he suffered considerably because of what others did to him. His father pampered him and his older brothers hated him and sold him as a slave.

  The emperor of China had a problem. Something was destroying his mulberry trees. So he did what any brilliant man does when faced with a problem he can’t handle: he turned it over to his wife! When Empress Ce Ling Shee looked at the trees, she noticed a moth laying eggs on the mulberry

Jesus in Me – That’s a Wrap!

  Thank you for being a part of this study! Let’s look back at everything we learned together… Your life’s purpose is the same as mine: to know God and to give Him glory as you make Him known through the way you live your life and you serve Him. ~ Anne And we know that

I know God loves my children and truly wants the best for them. Romans 8:28 reads, “We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” This doesn’t mean we (or they) won’t face adversity — in fact, the Bible pretty much guarantees that we will.7 But when God allows my children to suffer, I know He will use the experience to build their faith, their patience, and their strength — and that, at the end of the day, He will produce something good.

Praying for Physical Health, Safety, and Security for Your Children

  Praying for Physical Health, Safety, and Security for Your Children “Lord, Why Did This Happen?” I know I’m not the only mother who has ever questioned God’s tactics. Even my “spiritual giant” friend, Susan, found herself wondering what was up when her son Michael started suffering from violent stomach pains. Their pediatrician had dismissed

When Your Grief Is Almost More Than You Can Handle

I remember well the day my husband, Danny, gave me my engagement ring. We were sitting on the couch beside the fireplace in my parents’ living room. Inside a little black velvet box was the most beautiful ring I had ever seen. It was exactly what I would have selected had I done so myself.

Don’t be afraid of 2021! All is not lost! We need a new beginning and God is here to bring it!

2021: All Is Not Lost

  I’m a self-professed choir nerd. Or I used to be. The melodies of a choral ensemble warming up before state competitions are the most memorable soundtracks of my high school years. Show choir, girls’ pop, quartet — you name the combination, I wanted to sing in it. Rarely a stand-alone soloist, I was at
