An Encouraging Word From Our Heavenly Father

Seems pretty cheeky to say one can hear from God and even cheekier to share it with others. But if there’s a chance of this soothing hearts and encouraging us to trust God when we’re discouraged, then I’m sharing. Feel free to pass this on if it resonates with you….

Three Books, One Plan

This morning, God gave a very sweet gift of insight that left me blubbering.

For the past ten years of praying and writing, I’ve gone with God’s leading. I’ve laughed off the fact I’m an author genre-jumper, thus a publisher’s nightmare. This morning God gave a little glimpse of the blueprint He’s had in mind the whole time—

What Prayer Is Not. What Prayer Is.

“Peace in the Midst of the Storm” by Jack Dawson jackdawson.com (look for hidden images) Based on 1 John 4:4 What Prayer is Not: 1. Me convincing God to see things my way. 2. Me pushing hard enough until God finally gives me what I want. 3. The last resort….

The Great Exchange

30/30 Prayer Challenge: Day 3 I stumble out of bed. Fatigue and nagging pain scream this is silly, that my time, especially in such a helpless state, would be better spent asleep. Yes I’m weak. Yes, I’m needy. Yes, I’m aware there’s no good in me to face the day….

Who’s On First?

When I woke this morning about 1 ½ hours past when I had planned to, the first thought from God as I glared at the clock was, “Who is your God?”

Boom! As usual, He cuts right to the heart of the issue.

God’s Chrysalis

The difference between a fat caterpillar and a butterfly is startling. Obvious transformation occurs. No one has to ask if there is a difference because the thing looks, acts, and even feeds differently.

Are You Going to Continue This Craziness?

I was struggling this morning—again—with the call God has put on my life and writing compared to the paltry-seeming effectiveness of my daily efforts. My hubby, as usual, was very supportive; praying, rubbing my back, letting me vent, etc. As he was praying, God brought to mind Abraham and the…

Novel Prompted By a Dream

“One Night With A Rock Star” will always hold a special place in my heart since it represents those heady days when I fell passionately in love with writing. 

In the summer of 2005, I woke from a dream involving a favorite singing star and a much younger me.
