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 […]

Why can’t this be easier?

Do you ever just ask yourself:  “Why do I have to do this?  Why can’t this be easier?”  I was listening to a bible study this week and studying the book of Haggai.  If you’re like me then you may not even be familiar with the book of Haggai at all.  Leading up to this […]

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 […]

Prayer with Friends

In their follow-up to The Faith Book, Tawdra Kandle & Olivia Hardin share their thoughts on faith, prayer, and the impact of the Resurrection in their lives. These two friends live thousands of miles apart, but their shared faith in one God has led them to boundless gifts, including each other! In The Prayer Book, […]

The day is coming…

(Taken in part from a post originally published April 3, 2021) Last year my Pastor recounted the story of Jesus’ entry to Jerusalem. “Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 3 If anyone […]

A special wink…

A teacher of mine recently lost her dad and she’s posted several times about “winks” from him. Until then I’d never heard of “winks from heaven,” but I love the imagery because my daddy had quite the way of winking at us girls. This week I had a very special wink. A wink from my […]

You have His permission… and it’s a precious gift, too!

Have you ever heard God talking to you?  I mean, the clear realization that He’d been whispering in your ear but you just hadn’t been listening? In my last post I shared with you that my family had some struggles going on. We’d had weeks of worry, but in the end, the Lord gave us […]

Are you struggling like I am?

It’s a busy world. It’s a chaotic world.  It’s a desperate world. Sometimes it’s a scary world. The last few weeks we’ve been confronting medical tests for possible cancer diagnoses for two family members. In the midst of this, the world seems ever bent on tearing itself apart right in front of us. Even everyday […]

That time Jesus prayed for You

A few years ago I wrote a paranormal romance called Escaping the Ashes.  The main character is a fallen angel separated from his God.  At one point in the story his associate, a witch, confesses to him that her young stepdaughter had been praying for him.  It was an emotional scene for me, and it […]
