How to Choose a Church :: More Confessions from a Pastor’s Wife

I'm pretty sure I love Jesus more than ever before but His kids are driving me crazy.   I can't keep binge watching Gilmore Girls and eating popcorn to escape so I thought I might have an honest conversation with you today. Last week's post about house cats and the church unleashed something in me and… Continue reading How to Choose a Church :: More Confessions from a Pastor’s Wife

The Calling to the Back of the Bus {Revisited}

We've been celebrating Black History Month now for --well ...almost a whole month!  I'm late to the party and sadly, I've been late both in "real-time" and in  too much of my "life-time".  God is changing that.  He is changing me!  I'm still learning but I believe there has been movement in the right direction -- the… Continue reading The Calling to the Back of the Bus {Revisited}

A Calling to the “Back of the Bus”?

While reading my favorite Book,  I had one of those "moments" and I'm trying to process it through writing.  The process started while reading words like "out of the most severe trial", "overflowing joy", "extreme poverty", and "welled up in rich generosity"... I wondered how on earth these statements could co-exist in the same sentence !… Continue reading A Calling to the “Back of the Bus”?

Writing for Hope …My Story

I had no idea this would ever happen.  I wasn't looking for it, thinking about it or pursuing it in any way , shape or form.  The nudge  came in such a  simple, quiet way ...very gentleman-like as He spoke -- not pushy, forceful, or  demanding --  just three  simple words ...
