Twelve Months Of Craziness & One Steady God

Twelve Months Of Craziness & One Steady God

Today, on this sunny Florida afternoon, I’m reflecting on the past twelve months of craziness and one steady God. That’s the only way I can adequately describe how the last year has felt on so many levels. On this very day twelve months ago, I sat in my Manila apartment […]

Review of NIV Verse Mapping Bible and Journal

Review of NIV Verse Mapping Bible & Journal

The news was not at all what I expected. I heard the word malignant through my spotty connection after running out of my exercise class to answer the phone. It “IS malignant or ISN’T malignant?,” I inquired, but he couldn’t make out my words. After driving a few miles, I […]

In light of the events of 2020, it’s easy to see why some of us would just like to close our eyes, click our heels and wish the rest of this year away. Phew, it has been a toughie! But then, I’ve also felt God’s presence, seen His miraculous healing […]

Election 2020, pick a side

Election 2020 | Pick A Side

I can still vividly remember the scene…a distressed call would ring out, “Moooooom,” followed soon after by the appearance of one cherub only steps ahead of the other in frenzied pursuit. Then, the account would commence….”Mom, HE blah, ba blah, blah” or “Mom, SHE blah, ba blah, blah!” Four eyes […]

NIV Bible Study Review

Review of Newly Revised NIV Study Bible

I think we can all agree that we need something firm to stand on in 2020. Who can we trust…who should we turn to? When we find ourselves struggling with uncertainty and raw emotions, the Bible undoubtedly provides the safest place for sure answers.  What’s more, God’s Word can cut […]

God’s Presence In Simple Things

I have become much more focused and aware of nature’s beauty since spending twelve weeks quarantined in my Manila high rise apartment. For 84 days, I could only experience nature from a distance…an image behind glass. Now, I find myself taking periodic walks just to breathe fresh air and admire […]

Feeling Put Out

Feeling Put Out | Thankful For New Mercies

Wouldn’t it be great if every single day was puppies and rainbows? I can remember my babies looking up with wide eyes as they asked, “Why can’t every day be my birthday?” To which I explained if every day was a birthday, then birthdays just wouldn’t feel special. I guess […]

Be The Real Thing| My Trip To World Of Coke

Recently, I made the pilgrimage to The World Of Coke in downtown Atlanta. We southern folks are crazy about our Coke! This place has been on my bucket list for years and it was time to make some family memories. After viewing the museum of all-things-Coke I am now double-sure […]

Find Purpose In The Process

Find Purpose In The Process | 6 Steps

We’re heading up to the Carolina mountains tomorrow to have some family time and get away from the Florida heat. In true Bowdoin fashion, we’ll be off bright and early; stopping only when our stomachs or the bathroom calls. I guess you could say we’re get-there-and get-it-done kind of people…we’ll […]
