3 minutes of your time & goodies (probably) coming your way!

Seriously … I love to get biblical and practical resources into the hands of women! And I NEVER give your contact information to ANYONE (not even Peacemakers). SO … take just a couple of minutes BY MIDNIGHT TUESDAY (this all ends on 10/31) and you could win fun stuff! Free stuff! 1. Start a new topic or post a reply …

Forgiveness is better …

Earlier today Sophia, Choza and I headed out to run a couple of errands and bring Fred some soup for lunch. (There is an AMAZING little cafe in Billings run by these two Dutch brothers and their wives and on Fridays they have the world’s best tomato basil soup. It’s out of this world! If you’re even in Billings on …

What a friend …

This morning I called up a woman in my church that I really don’t know very well–but I’ve always wanted to get to know more. (She has ministered grace to our Body in such humble, sweet, intelligent ways … well … she just seemed like the kind of person everyone would always want to spend time with.) It was … …

Why I do / do NOT bookmark a blog …

I wrote a LONG (I’m sure TOO long) email to a friend this morning on the topic of blogging … and while I won’t bore you with its entire contents, I thought I’d pass along my closing comments: It’s rare for me to bookmark a blog and ever return. When I do, usually my reasons are: 1) I know the …

A plan. A friend.

I reached out to someone this week for help. (You know–you’ve heard me say it a thousand times … what do I need help with? Discipline, prayer, accountability, etc.) I was SO nervous to ask her. Boy it’s hard to be vulnerable!! But God’s grace CONSTRAINED me. Really. I just knew I had to do it and so I did. …

A friend wrote me an email today and mentioned in an aside that it’s 80 degrees where she lives. Can’t say that about Billings. Here are a few pics from our morning …

The relationship is more important … (AAAAUUUURRRGGGHHH!)

This week I’ve had two very FRUSTRATING experiences with vendors. One has (unjustly) cost me a huge amount for our family’s budget ($500!!), the other has just inconvenienced me and caused me a hassle (but he has the potential of costing us money too). But here’s the thing … I can be such a jerk in my heart! Really. I …

Is it REALLY possible to CHANGE?

I am deep into preparations for my new (“advanced” / “alumni”) women’s retreat. (A church in Texas has already had me teach my “standard” retreat and they asked me to come back next month for another event. So I’m preparing a new set of teachings on Becoming Who You Already Are: How the Gospel Transforms Our Lives and Brings Us …

Please tell me about your peace with food …

I know that you’re out there. Statistically, it must be true. Some of the people reading this blog just DON’T struggle with gluttony / idolatry of food on a regular basis. Sure, you may occasionally overindulge. A delicious meal or treat may tempt you. But your DAILY life does NOT revolve around food. Healthful, happy, God-honoring EATERS … would you …
