A Time For Acceptance

Sometimes we have to take a step back from what we think we know about each other and allow curiosity and openness to reveal what’s new.

Straight Ahead

“What does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8) I was reminded of a funny experience I had years ago on a golf course in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I was a beginner golfer. In the classic art of college instruction, we had worked…

Lessons Learned in L.A.

I recently enjoyed a weekend in Los Angeles with my three daughters. This momma learned a few things and I thought I’d share them this week: We never know who may be encouraged when we read our Bible in plain view. I was walking on the beach within an hour of my flight landing. I…
