How May I Serve You?

I was asked a question today that I don’t think anyone has ever asked me in an honest and sincere way. That question was, “What do you need from me? How can I help you?” My pastor’s question stopped me cold in my tracks. I'm not sure I can recall a time where anyone,...

Walking by Faith – Career

Luke 12:27 "Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil or spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these." Can you think of a time when you ever truly had to walk by faith and not by site? It's a very scary place to be...

Not a Good Fit

Faith Test Anxiety

Knowing that we all walk through all kinds of trials as Christians, I recently started labeling these types of journeys as “Faith Test Anxiety.”  (Yes, I was experiencing that in my entry from a few weeks ago and I am still experiencing some of that “faith test...

When it’s not “Well With My Soul”

As I sat in church this past Sunday, and sang the hymn, It Is Well With My Soul, I couldn’t help but feel the contrary. My family and I are facing some very difficult decisions in the coming weeks and I was definitely not feeling like all was well with my soul. I want...
