Recovering from Sexual Addiction

Sometimes, even the most privileged calls come with a great deal of pain. Mary's (the mother of Jesus) story serves as a reminder of this truth. It can encourage us to trust the One who writes our own stories.

Growing Faith and Moving Mountains (Part One)

Well, we're halfway through the 90 day therapeutic separation. I thought it would be a good idea to give a little update because God has been doing some big stuff! We ended up changing a few of the parameters to the plan after about a week. I'd like to explain those changes and then get to telling you about some of those big ole mountains God has been moving.

Psalms 37: How to Delight In and Trust God

Several nights ago, Psalm 37 was part of my daily Bible reading plan and my goodness, did it ever speak to me! Ever since that night I have been going back to it, reading it, meditating on it, and praying these words over my life. God has used it to calm my anxious heart and reassure me of His presence, His loving care, His promises, His power, and His heart. Let's walk through some of what He's been teaching me.
