Christianity is true and all other religions and worldviews are false. I know. I’m so close-minded. Your truth says something different. But the thing is, there is no “your truth”. There’s no my truth either. There is only the truth. So how can I make this truth claim? Logic, reason, and personal experience. I know…

My God Story

Guys. I have NEVER had it all together. Not before I was a Christian, and not since becoming one. I fall short every day. But if God can take the mess I was, the girl who thought she had zero value, then he can do the same for you. The amazing thing is, he longs…

I like Big Buts and I Cannot Lie

What situation seems impossible right now? Where do you feel helpless? I have good news. If you belong to Jesus, there is always, always, always hope. We have a God who is present and powerful. Things may not look good right now, but God is in control; working all things together for the good of…

40:40 Day…40

  Today will be the last post in my forty day series of commemorating God’s faithfulness and persisting in prayer. I remember being on day eight and wondering how in the world I would come up with thirty-two more God moments to write about, but he brought more to mind as the days progressed and…

40:40 Day 36

My friend Alicia has the gifts of prayer and contagious laughter. Both equally important. I knew she would set an alarm for some weird time, like 5:37 a.m., each morning and she would pray for Cyprus or whatever God was laying on her heart, and then go back to sleep. I really admired her dedication…

40:40 Day 33

Miles’ visa took eight months to get approved , and it just happened to be  approved one day before the list was released.One day. Many families had been waiting for months for Dictator, I mean, President Joseph Kabila of the DRC to reopen the adoption gates. Chris and Julie knew it was God that had…

40:40 Day 32

Alison is the most animated, joyful, crazy (in a good way) woman I’ve ever known. She IS the party, and for her the party is all about Jesus. She’d been serving as a missionary in North Africa for three years when she met Brian at a wedding back stateside, and a slooooow romance began to…

40:40 Day 30

Pramana had been born into a people group with a population of twenty-four million. In his people group, there were only three known followers of Jesus, and no church. The only religion that he had ever practiced or known while growing up had been a sort of folk Islam. Pramana knew the Quran by rote….

40:40 Day 18

Things had gotten rough at home. The one roommate I had left broke our front window while I was in Portugal and said it was a break in, leaving the house an hour later with a gaping, jagged hole. My friend Richie went over at three a.m. to make sure Bentley was ok and found…

40:40 Day 16

I love Haiti. Hands down, it was the best “vacation” ever, and I would love to return someday. I also love missionary stories, so when I came across “Miracle on Voodoo Mountain” on Christian Audio, I knew I’d enjoy hearing the story of Megan Boudreaux, a twenty four year old who responded in obedience to…
