We see it every day. Our brothers and sisters. Our friends and neighbors. Our customers and coworkers. People are hurting. The holiday season is fast approaching which means for some, that pain, despair and grief will magnify. But friends, there is something we can do. The answer is prayer. Is any one of you in […]

He Ain’t Heavy, He’s my Brother

Do you ever feel uncomfortable when things are going well for you?  I’ll be perfectly honest, I do.  Several things go on in my mind when I’m living on the sunny side of life… first, I find myself looking for and worrying about when “the other shoe” will drop.  When are things going to collapse?  […]

Remember when…

Last weekend my husband’s son and his family came for a visit. We hadn’t seen them since the first of the year and it was a lovely chance to catch up on the things going on in their lives. And I especially enjoyed talking to one of our granddaughters who is about to enter high […]

It’s time to build the temple

Several weeks ago I shared with you a bible study I’d attended on the book of Haggai called Why Can’t This be Easier? In it, I talked about how the Israelites were instructed by God and then challenged by His prophet Haggai to rebuild God’s temple.  One of the things that kept them from rebuilding […]

A few weeks ago my mom, sister and I attended the Hardin-Turner Family reunion. It was so good to see all of our family after being apart during the pandemic. It was especially good to spend time with my dad’s sisters and brothers and other family who still share amazing memories of my dad. I […]

How do we know?

I’ve been praying and asking God for answers for a while now.  I especially began seeking His guidance over the time that Tawdra Kandle and I shared our “Forty Days with the Risen Christ” devotional.  Then the week before last at a bible study we discussed the holy spirit and the gifts the Spirit gives […]

Our bound prayer matters

Prayers matter. This broken world needs prayer now more than ever. Prayer matters. As Tawdra and I have written our “Forty Days of Following the Resurrected Lord” devotional, we’ve been binding our prayers with each other and all of you who follow us online. Those prayers are doing amazing things! Just a few weeks ago […]

I won’t try

There really isn’t a right thing for me to say is there?  Twenty-one lives lost… Twenty-one voices silenced… Twenty-one hugs disappeared… Twenty-one families destroyed… All of those hearts broken… And the rest of us—the lucky ones—sitting in limbo trying to make sense. Trying desperately to understand… There really isn’t a right thing for me to […]
