Be The One

Tonight I sat on my teenage son’s bed, fighting back tears as he asked me if I thought he would ever get shot at school. It was the first time I’ve seen real fear on his face—fear born from the stark realization that life-altering, life-ending violence can happen anywhere. And I hate it. I hate

#nofearFriday: Identity Versus Fear

#nofearFriday It's #nofearFriday and today we are tackling identity and fear. What do you think? Can identity influence fear? Does confusion over our true identity cause us to be more fearful? I think the Bible gives strong evidence to suggest it does. I also believe that the secret to living a fear less life is

Learning to Let Go: when God has to pry the mom fingers from our teenagers’ faith

“God,” I whispered, afraid of uttering aloud the thoughts in my heart. “I wish my son would never have started reading the Bible.” There. I said it. And I meant it—even though the admission brought a fresh wave of tears. I mean what Christian mom doesn’t want her son to read the Bible?? What Bible

Launching hope one story at a time…

Launching hope one story at a time... What is hope? How would you define the word? Trust in a promise? Belief in something? An idea? This weekend I launched my first book. And it was glorious and beautiful; surreal and exciting. But what struck me the most about the day was that the launch of

Throwing off the cloak of fear

My fear started off as a warm blanket wrapped securely around my shoulders—protecting me from an ever growing list of potential dangers: Germs. Public speaking. Sharks. Sharing my writing with others. My kids playing outside. Cold coffee. Driving on the highway. Roaches. Submitting a book proposal. Talking to a publisher. Doing a facebook live video.

Things I’m supposed to tell you and things I want to say

Five years ago I saw my silhouette reflected in the eyes of a blind horse. That night, as the setting sun transformed the evening sky, I gazed into almond shaped eyes set into the face of a black and white horse. A horse who could see nothing but darkness. I stood before the animal, transfixed.

No Fear Friday

Several weeks ago I accidentally started a thing. A movement of sorts. Although in full disclosure it's really just a movement of one, maybe two...possibly as many as three. But's kind of become a thing for me. And it's called No Fear Friday. You see, several weeks ago I had to send out

About My Work

This blog serves as an online journal of sorts. It is where I go to process my thoughts and feelings. It is where I write about what it means to shine the light of Jesus in an ever darkening world. And it is where I record the beautiful glimpses of God’s extraordinary grace in the midst of my very ordinary life.
