No one thinks it's going to happen to them. It's the optimism principle. We watch as all these horrible things happen to those around us but never think the shoe will be on the other foot…until it is. 

My mom flew in to meet me at the hospital, that's why I knew it was serious. I remember the nurse grabbing me to ensure that I wouldn’t fall as they watched my heart monitor skyrocket when I stood up. Standing. It was something s...

Was I chosen from the start?

Did He really know my heart?

Both can be answered with a nod.

An act of the one and only:

God.  

At 12 years old I was lost.

Little did I know I was soon to be found.

For with just the raise of a hand

I accepted Christ.

In that moment the World remained

Untamed and unashamed.

Children running to and fro.

But where He was I would later know. 

I waited for a hand to touch my heart.

Waited for a tiny little spark.

Five years ago I told God I would do anything for His name. Of course, my definition of anything was slightly different from what He has called me to do. 

When I said anything, I meant the shallow end of the water. I wanted my feet safely and firmly touching the bottom. However, God called me into the deep waters of a calling I often do not feel ready for in the first place.

Five years ago, I told God He could have me but I made...

“You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

Matthew 5:48 

Being the perfectionist that I am, this verse stressed me out when I read it for the first time. I have always put a lot of pressure on myself to keep my act together and do the right thing, so imagine the spike in my heart rate when I read Jesus Himself commanding me to be perfect!

I am painfully aware of my inability to be perfect no matter how...

Live chosen. What does it mean? I’ve been asking myself that ever since I signed up to do this blog post. How hard could it be to write about daily life? Then I sat down to write and nothing came. How could I explain it? Would I come across as hypocritical? Then today happened. 

Monday morning just before six o’clock, I’m ready to hop in the shower to start the week as a teacher. I’ve had a wonderful weekend with family and a c...

Some days I don’t want to be chosen anymore. It has cost me a lot. It’s painful and exhausting. I’m tired.

I know this probably isn’t what you were expecting, or wanting when...

When you move around as much as I do, you meet a lot of different people. What I've found is that I love "real" people. I'm talking about people who are not afraid to be vocal about their imperfections, people who make the rest of us feel like we're not alone in our flaws. I love these people and I love connecting them to others. While having conversations about the needs of a ministry, there are so many instances when our con...

Let me start off by saying how far out of my comfort zone it is to even write this post. But I’m doing it because I hope my #LiveChosen moment will help someone else. 

My husband Gary and I have been married for 57 years. Gary and I have been in the ministry for over 40 years and have pastored several churches and traveled as evangelists during that time. We were priviledged to be able to travel thru England and Scotland where...

Imagine waking up on your fifteenth birthday, so early the sun hasn’t even begun to make it’s daily debut, and there is a demon hovering over your bed. Yeah, I freaked ou...
