  • My husband is an attorney. When we moved five years ago he couldn’t find a job. I remember looking at his face when he walked in the door, late, wearing his red uniform shirt with the little white bullseye logo on the pocket from his part –time job. Defeated.

  • The time leading up to Christmas seems kind of like a crazy frenzy of things we’ve got to do, expectations to meet (those of ours and our own), and generally a lot of rushing around. It hasn’t always been this way though. Historically, Christians have called this time of year Advent, which is a time of anticipation; a time of waiting. During Advent, we look back, anticipating the arrival of Jesus as a baby in a manger. We also look forward to His return in glory as a reigning king.

  • Lamar Odom. He has a kind face. Forget everything you’ve read about him for just a moment. I’m thinking about Lamar’s dad, Joe. Upon hearing the news of Lamar, Joe said, “I knew something was wrong because I’ve been calling him all day and he hasn’t been answering. I’m depressed — What can I do?

  • He’s starting Middle school. This little thing I used to dress in overalls with little wee sized cowboy boots and sweet little John John’s with knee socks and little white soft bottomed shoes that were a gift from Great Aunt Marilyn. He’s my buddy. I see it beginning to happen. That thing older parents talk about –you know when our littles grow up and begin to lean away from us…

  • My daughter Camille and I had the chance to go on a mission trip to Guatemala with a group from our church earlier this summer. We were working in the communities surrounding the Guatemala City dump. People scratch out their existence there scavenging for whatever they can recycle, sell, or make into something in the trash. It’s pretty overwhelming to think about, even more to experience firsthand.

  • I’m not sure why we did this---but in passing the time we decided it would be a good idea to throw a few things down on a car below. We dug for whatever we could find in the kitchen that we didn’t want to eat, and had at it. After dropping the last sardine on the car below, a woman rounded the corner and yelled up at ..

  • Imagine being the captain of a ship and realizing that the anchor you just had the crew throw into the water is made of plastic and won’t hold the ship where you want it to stay. In fact, maybe you get distracted and don’t even realize you’ve been adrift until it’s still too late. Life is full of false anchors. These are things we rely on for security, it could be..

  • Although we were politely keeping to ourselves at first---We bonded instantly as we both laughed at the guy on my other side. He was snoring so loudly that our seats were vibrating before the plane took off, poor guy. That’s all it took. She began to share her story. He cheated, lied...

  • When Carrie heard her name announced on-air she could hardly believe it. She had been setting her alarm daily so she would remember to tune in and listen. With 5 kids (including 2 sets of twins) an extra $500 doesn't hurt!
