Behind The Songs – A Still and Quiet Night

Christmas Single – A Still and Quiet Night One of the biggest (and I think), most difficult places to show the love of Christ is to our spouse: in which we have many opportunities to practice grace, allowing iron to sharpen iron to mature and prepare us for future glory. In marriage, many couples face an unintentional drift as they prepare for the Empty Nest. For many years the focus of the union has been…

Who Gets the Praise?

It is tempting at the least to want to live your life for yourself, but the truth is the exact opposite. The praise of man is not where it is at. Please God and not yourself. Live a life that will glorify Him and then one day He will lift you up and you will be glorified as well when you see Him face to face. Praise God…do good things…lay up your treasures in Heaven.…

Chasing Answers – Part II

…(This is a continuation of Chasing Answers Part I). In the intensity of the “not knowing” waiting for test results on your health to come back can be so stressful. Even when you try to turn the anxious thoughts over every day, every moment. Like I mentioned in the previous post, Part I, worrying about it doesn’t add a single hour to your life, in fact it does just the opposite, robs you of enjoying…

Compelled to Go

I can’t believe I’m doing this! I must be crazy!? I am just a semi-retired counselor and a mom and a worship leader and older and … who am I? My family says, “Just a little bit crazy!” (pun intended, but it’s true, that’s what they are saying). Why am I so compelled to go out there and do this? To take these songs I have written out on the road and share them? In…

Being A Resilient Believer

There is an amazing strength that comes from within when you know beyond a shadow of a doubt whose you are: that you were created for a purpose and how much you are deeply loved. “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3, ESV “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully…

God Shines Through Our Failures

Failure. Who wants to fail? None of us. But the truth of the matter is, we live in a fallen world and we have a sinful nature that wars against us. There is also an Enemy agent at work against us. As humans we are fragile. We are bound to fail. I fail, you fail, we fail each other. But our God NEVER fails us. “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and…

God is Near

Psalm 34:18, ESV ” The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” When you are struggling with depression and feel all alone, when you are in your deepest and darkest place and can’t find a way out you don’t have to go far to find your Jehovah God. He is right there with you; in fact, the word ‘near’ in its original Hebrew means ‘to approach, to draw near, to…
