We may or may not have survived the gauntlet that some people call the first week of school. This morning is the first that all kids actually managed to get on a bus! Now we’ll see if they get home, too! This morning I see sun filtering through green leaves and dirty windows. I sit […]

I am writing my first post from the new (old) house! This mountain climb we’re on is steep friends. There have been tears and heated words (mostly me, sigh) and anxiety and more money spent than we anticipated. There have been demands and unexpected pieces and some blessings thrown in. A pretty typical moving experience. […]
I see you. I see the fear that has taken up a place in you where I should be, I can take that from you. You can trust me. You turn all the lights on and make sure things are locked so that you feel safe. You are safe. I am here. I love to […]
Do. Do. Do. Work. Work. Work. Produce. Produce. Produce. We live in a society that determines our value on what we produce. Homeless = 0 on welfare = 0 mom who stays home = 2 news anchor on major network = 7 blue collar worker = 4 movie actor = 10 Even though that […]

I was passionate about reaching children for Jesus. I grieved for children who had been abused, forgotten, murdered. I was a children’s pastor, I […]
This won’t be my ordinary review. Finding Spiritual Whitespace – Awakening Your Soul to Rest came to me as a gift of grace in the middle of a weary battle. I didn’t know who Bonnie Gray was or what spiritual whitespace was. I don’t even read ‘teaching’ books very often because I learn through stories […]
I have written vague blog posts. There are rumours flying and people in the dark. So for those who want to know…here is the whole story. *I am linked up to Five-Minute-Friday and I will admit this is going to take way more than 5 minutes to write (or read) today, so if you’re here…from […]
