Living In The Present

As a Christian woman, I am taught to put my hope in the Lord. Not only limited to my salvation, this hope encompasses the entirety of my life - relationships, education, friendship....more

Thoughts on John 14:6

 In my blogging travels today, I came across a  refreshing post that spoke of the exclusivity of Christ.   It instantly reminded me of  what Jesus said on that very subject - a verse with which many are familiar.  Have you ever considered what that verse is really saying?  ...more

Post-Rapture Pet Care: World Ends Saturday! Who'll Feed the Dog?

It's a Saturday Night Live skit waiting to happen, right? Eternal Earth-Bound Pets: A service that promises to care for your pet after you have ascended to heaven to join The Almighty. Like the company's co-founder, Bart Centre, I laughed at first. Surely, this can't be for real. But after speaking with Bart, and a few close friends who believe in the Rapture, I stopped laughing and started thinking....more

Before I Jump In

My fingers fly over the keys. I answer emails. I check blogs. My mind twists itself around the number of hits on my blog. I recall prayer requests from my network friends and I know I need to get an update. It’s been too long since we spoke. Steam rises from my cup of coffee and dissipates into the cool air. The sunlight slants across the wall of the house next door. The day begins with or without my permission....more

Trust and Obedience

 Why do we over-complicate the spiritual life when what God wants from us can be summarized in one word: obedience? Obedience to God is the key to the Christian life. We can read books and articles published by religious scholars and not gain as much illumination into the things of the Lord as we would if we would simply obey the Holy Spirit. These verses come to mind: Ecc 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. ...more

Resurrection Every Day!

  As a Christian, it's great to know that we don't have to wait for a calendar to tell us and show us when to celebrate Jesus' resurrection.  We can celebrate it every day!  In fact, we should c...more

The Incredible Lightness of Giving

I recently launched an IndieGoGo fundraising campaign to help build a Safe House in Haiti for rape victims (http://igg.me/p/24997?a=122456&i=shlk ) and immediately entered an energy dead zone. I won’t characterize the public response to my campaign as one of apathy or disinterest. Instead, I’ll say I think people are experiencing “donor fatigue” or a sorta of “charity burn-out”. This is reflected by the fact that I’ve been getting a steady number of visitors to my campaign site but no one has taken the next step—making a donation. ...more

Pressures on Single Christian Women

In society in general, an insurmountable amount of pressure is placed on women to get in relationships, fall in love and get married. This pressure can seem even greater in the Christian community. While marriage is a wonderful thing, some people in the church place an unnecessary amount of pressure on women to hurry up and settle down and get married, as if that is the only purpose of a Christian woman’s life....more

Learning to Trust Your Mind Again

As I've gone about my daily life these past 38 (even though I still feel 27) years, there's been something going on I wasn't aware of, an undercurrent within my own life which I didn't feel pulling me down. ...more
