A response to a Christian woman in a difficult marriage …

(Received an email question from a Christian woman who is in a difficult marriage and I thought my reply might enocurage others too. So here it is …) (All identifying information has been changed–of course.) —————————————– Dear Carla, I was blessed to receive your email, but sad too, of course.

Why I come home (even for only two days) …

Sometimes people ask me why (when I have events back-to-back) I come home “only for two days.” A picture is worth a 1,000 words, right? 🙂 Happy Tuesday, all! Love, Tara B. (And I can’t even take pictures of my ALL-TIME-FAVORITE cuddle times in the morning and at bed and reading books during the day! Grace abounds. Truly abounds.)

When we are cruelly attacked …

I just found out that a dear friend of mine was recently verbally hurt by her dad. (Strange, because I had a stressful dream about my own dad last night and then I woke up at 6:30AM–on the EAST COAST!! so, like, 4:30 for my Montana bod–and found her email in my Inbox.) I immediately prayed for her (of course) …

(And please consider visiting her blog Solo …

I’m freaking out!

I’m freaking out trying to “finalize” my notes and the study guide for the dvd project: – “This is TOO deep. No one will want to follow all of this. Why do I keep using all of these theological terms? What is WRONG with me?!” – “This is SO simple! Everyone knows this! Why am I even DOING THIS ANYWAY? …

Oh my! This is sobering …

I just found out that a woman was KILLED near our home in pretty much the same car accident that I had last month. Two-lane road. Snow and ice. She swerved into oncoming traffic with no warning and for no apparent reason. And she died. Amazingly–a member of our church (with medical training) was in the car RIGHT BEHIND the …
