Rain, Rainbows and a Harvest

“Cause what if your blessings come through rain drops? What if Your healing comes through tears? What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near? What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise?” Blessings by Laura Story When I was at my brother’s house, we went to […]

Layers of God’s Faithfulness

There are many layers to being a single parent and even more so, a single mother. Layers that I had never thought through or expected. It’s more than just getting through the day to day tasks. It’s all aspects of living life on your own. When Charles died there are many things that I “lost” […]

How Will We Ever Make It?

“There’s a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish – but what are they for so many?” John 6:10 I can’t imagine the scene of when Jesus feeds the 5,000 found in John 6 where there was a crowd of thousands gathered on a mountainside and they had nothing to eat. A […]

Overcoming Bitterness with Grace

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of sharing at a couple of ladies Bible studies about grace in marriage. But as I spoke about grace in marriage, I felt the Lord speaking to me about the need for grace in another area of my life, an unexpected issue that has been quickly taking […]
