About LaniWith six kids, a farm, a ministry and dreams poking out in every direction I need plenty of grace to keep all the balls in the air. The sweet thing is that when I drop them, that crazy grace of God is there telling me I'm still okay...and you are, too...welcome to this place of grace.

Sandra Orchard’s new book Deadly Devotion‘s plot line is focused on tea, truth and it’s set in Canada AND it’s a mystery – what’s not to like!!? I can’t help but endorse a fellow Canadian, however, you’ll want to grab a copy of the book for some great pool-side reading this summer! Kate Adams is […]
A few days ago I talked about getting hurt by your own gifting. But what about when you get hurt by someone else’s? I know this happens far too often.
