Same and yet completely different world

One special blessing as I have connected with people in this past month is hearing their hearts, the people who have influenced their faith journeys, and their desires to be growing to be more like Christ. It is a wonderful team of people whom I get to call friends and partners!

“…making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel...” Philippians 1:4b-5a (ESV)

This month I am blessed to share a family with you that is very dear to my heart. It all started in February 2016 with a young boy named Benilson who was drawn to me, and I to him. A special bond grew between us, and as time went on that bond grew with his whole family. Over the past few years I have gotten to know them and feel as though I am one of them. I love this family very much. Benitho and [...]

Keep Our Eyes on Jesus

When I think about the struggles of our world, I am glad I have faith in Jesus. I can not imagine getting through a day without Him. I can remember times when I have chosen the temptations of our world and found myself in a place I was never meant to go. Our Father loves us so much that He will never leave us. Keeping our eyes focused on Jesus transforms us from the inside out. Focusing on Jesus helps our clarity stay focused on [...]

Social distancing dominates the media and our lives right now, and may prove to be very effective for slowing down the spread of the coronavirus. But I am coming to realize that social distancing is not such a new phenomenon, as much as it is a deepening of a condition we have all been living.

You might say it’s a matter of genetics. My mother and my paternal grandmother were both published writers. It was a hobby for Grandmother Schroeder, but my mother was possibly more serious about finding a career in writing than she was about anything or anyone else. My propensity for writing surfaced before I left grade school.  Rather than making this a career choice, however, I moved into the realm of teaching, primarily influenced by an incredible, high school English teacher, Miss Gatzweiler.

Apple Pie, Anyone?

We were a small gathering one evening around the dining room table. The centerpiece was a home baked apple pie. A diverse group of seniors with little in common, we were enjoying an air of congeniality –with a faint aroma of spices. Our conversation ranged widely and at any point when we needed more information each of us without exception pulled out a smart phone. A recipe. The name of a fruit or a book title. A location on the map. Whatever -we had come [...]
