Who knew God would choose THAT moment? You know. The one that causes twitching, and gagging just a little. That shaming dark moment revealing you at your worst. The Please-God-make-it-stop memory. The one you aren’t proud of. AT ALL.

I admitted mine to a room full of pe...

As fall approaches, I miss my home in Colorado. The leaves will be changing soon, and locals will spend weekends driving up into the mountains to view the beautiful foliage of the Aspen trees. Here in California, a drought continues, fires rage, and I’ve learned to tak...

In 2009, I read a book by Donald Miller called, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. He tells a story about being a New York Times best selling author and yet, even as a Christian, something was missing. Life was unfulfilling.

He was contacted by a movie producer who wa...

It’s been a year. I assumed I would blog my way through it, telling my story of that first year back teaching in 16 years. Nope. Not one post. I couldn’t do it. Mainly because I felt like a hypocrite. A liar. A phony. And I just couldn't put myself out there with the t...

This journey. This jumping out of the boat to walk on water and not drown in my own doubts that God might not be there has been overwhelming. As a writer, I’m speechless. Wordless for how to explain a God and His provision. He doesn’t live in my box of my limitations....

I jumped. I’ll admit, it wasn’t a full on courageous jump, as if I were really going to walk on water with Jesus. It was more of a half-hearted, Jesus can always pull me up if I start to drown like usual jump. But I jumped none the less.

Just days before, it seemed as i...

I’m going to be homeless in 3 weeks.

Not the typical kind of homeless where you get kicked out because you can’t afford it anymore and have no job and no money and no family or friends to help you.

The kind of homeless where God actually TELLS you not to look for another...

Who cries watching American Idol? Um, I did. Yep. Bawled like a baby. Ever had a moment when God entered a room unexpectedly? Kind of like when the disciples were hiding out after Jesus’ death behind locked doors. Suddenly, there was Jesus. ALIVE. I can tell you what m...

“Guess what happened today in health class, Mom? It’s really bad, but don’t freak out,” says my son. All I can think is, “Did the teacher hand out condoms?” Oh to be so lucky.

Instead, my son tells about a senior student bursting into the classroom, frantically speaking...

I should have known. I don’t know why I was surprised, or why I cried for 2 days and saw my life as over, but I did.

My 4 year old failed preschool.

For 8 1/2 months, I dropped him off and picked him up 3 days a week with nary a peep from his teacher. It was now mid-May,...
