Miracle Money

We are walking into George Müller territory. Recently, I heard a Bible teacher (via DVD) lament that his children may miss out on critical lessons on faith, because God had given them so many physical comforts. We pray that our children would also understand living faith in our living God. Unlike George Müller and his…

The Lucky Counselor

Lord Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole; I want Thee forever to live in my soul. Break down every idol, cast out every foe; Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Lord Jesus, let nothing unholy remain, Apply Thine own blood and extract ev’ry stain; To get this blest cleansing, I…

Simply a Godly Woman

Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did. And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick, and died: whom when they had washed, they laid her in an upper chamber. And…

How Deep The Father’s Love

I have an amazing Dad. Just the other day, I was reflecting on him and on all the lessons he has taught me. So many life lessons are learned without our realization until we are grown and have raised our own children. My Dad is a military man, having had a career in the Air…

To Seek & To Save

I grew up in a military home and married a man in the military, so my life is characterized by change. By the time I was in the seventh grade, I was in my fifth school.  While living in Kansas in the third grade, I attended a children’s Bible club on Wednesday nights at a…

Choosing…The Blessings of Widowhood

Widowhood—rarely did I ever have thoughts of it, and those thoughts were quickly dismissed. God had blessed our lives so richly. Would not my husband, Howard, and I enjoy many years together… grow old together… While enduring a chronic cough that had begun three months earlier, on April 27, 2011, Howard received the report that…

The Perfect One

Do you ever long in your heart to be perfect? That is, perfect in thought, words and actions, not to mention the motivations of the heart. Isn’t it usually after muddling up something and revealing our very human imperfections that we really wish we could be perfect? Alas, perfection only belongs to One. To find…

Open Your Eyes

“It would be wrong to turn a blind eye, Lulu,” my heart shouted. “But you’ve got both kids on the motorbike and you are already late to school,” my head answered. “You can’t do much.” “Yes, but God can.” I looked back and saw the old man carrying a woman in the hot blazing sun….

Serving or Slaving: Love Makes the Difference

“Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity…seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil,… beareth all things,… endureth all things.” 1 Corinthians 13 “Mommeeee!! I neeeeeeed yoooouu!” For the third time in five minutes, I had been summoned in this way. The first time was for an “accident” in the bathroom. “No…

The Influence of an Ordinary Day

It was an ordinary day in northern Arizona…that is if any day in northern Arizona can be considered ordinary. The crisp, brrrr-chill mornings with the smell of pine needles greeted us every day. Each morning as we walked out the door of our home, the scene was breathtaking. The majestic San Francisco Peaks and the…
