  • Crossover moment to becoming a Christian

    I love a good conversion story, that moment or series of moments that lead up to a person going from not belonging to Jesus to belonging to him.
    I remember telling my friend Mike that it was like getting married. Either you are or you aren’t. I told him you can think you’re married, say you’re married, live with another person as if you’re married, but unless you’ve signed the marriage license and said, “I do,” you’re not married.

  • Everyone is a “millennial”when it comes to God

    Since last year I’ve gotten three new podmates at work, all millennials (those born in the 1980s to the early 2000s).
    One just turned 30, one just turned 27 and one, at 22, is younger than my favorite denim jacket that I still wear.
    I call them my pod kids and they call me their pod mom.
    Of the three, the 30-year-old, was horrified to learn that she is a millennial. She had me watch a “Millennials in the Workplace” You Tube video that hilariously portrayed her generation as, among other things, always expecting a reward for doing their job.

  • Hope, like light, scatters the darkness

    The other morning I ate breakfast in the moonlight.
    The temperature outdoors was several degrees cooler than the temperature indoors, so I took my bowl of Cinnamon Chex/Fiber One with unsweetened almond milk and my cup of coffee, opened the sliding glass door that separates the living room from the back screened-in porch and sat at the high-top tile table.
    It was early — I’m a ridiculously early riser — and it was still dark out except for a sliver of a moon.

  • A confession of love for, fear of the confessional

    Several times a week I pass a church that has a sign board out front advertising confessions on Saturdays.
    I confess that when I was a kid I went to a church that had confession booths, only I thought behind the dark wooden doors was either a broom closet or it was where they kept the devil.
    Kids think crazy things, don’t they?
    When I was 7 or so I got to go behind the wooden doors and confess my sins, which mostly consisted of being mean to my sister and brothers and disobeying my parents.

  • Opening the door to sin lets the devil get his foot in and take over

    For the past few months we’ve been taking care of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target, while our daughter spends some time with my sister in California.
    They’re both gray tabby cats, each about 10 years old.
    My husband calls Mohawk “Hawkeye” or “Hawk” and I’ve nicknamed Target “the weasel” because he’s long and he slinks through the house like I imagine a weasel would.
    Lately, we’ve noticed another cat hanging around, white with butterscotch coloring.

  • Prayer is a winning strategy in the game of life

    My family and I were outside playing a friendly game of football recently. I say “friendly” because it sounds nice. When, in all actuality, I am a momma who plays to win.
    Now, you probably don’t know this about me, nor would you think it if you saw my smaller frame, but I have got some skill. It is not my quick feet or my massive strength or even my knowledge of football (which is questionable) that leads me to be victorious. My skill is strategy.
