A place to find encouragement for the journey, color for nourishment, rainbows in the wilderness.

Every day seems an exercise in the impossible. You’re not accomplishing what you should be. What everyone else seems to be. Wonder Women.

Other women ARE wonders! Online, you witness the possible for them. You see them in person too. Those able to successfully well dres...

I would trade in my birthday gifts, since I was then old enough to understand I didn't need them.

I would give up my 10th birthday to give Christmas to someone else. In lieu of gifts, I was to ask my friends to provide food and clothing to a family in need....

I was feeling guilty I wasn't saving the world at Christmas time.

With gift giving and eating in equal measure, my worship seemed paltry and any hymn singing had faded to inaudibility. There simply wasn't time for it.

Gravel roads make for good friends.

The kind you meet at your local tire store.

Who knew?

Twice a month, on average, I'm working on my gravel road relationships, which is to say, I'm getting to know my tire guys. And it isn't just those from whom I buy my tires--the tires...

When you ask God for a supernatural experience, and then fully anticipate one, expect flying colors.

Unearthly, otherworldly, miraculous, SUPERnatural colors.

The key is, you must fully anticipate them.

And I did.

At the risk of appearing overly enthusiastic over my recent...

"This is never going to work," I say out loud to myself as I look into the mirror. How can I possibly feel confident delivering a speech looking like, well, me?

I can't stand the way I look. I'm even less enchanted with the way I speak. And yet, I must stand up in...

Faith isn't faith unless it's backed by something that can't be proven. Right? Faith is something that allows us to believe in things unseen. It's trust without proof. 

When the term is used in association with God, and it most always is when used intelli...
