The Lies of Rejection

I originally wrote this for a friend’s blog. I am reposting here, because today I received my first rejection from a publisher for my Bible study called The Jewels of Hebrews.

A while ago I went to a women’s conference in another state with some of my relatives. We heard two different Bible teachers speak. Both of these women had written books. Both were well known. That is where the similarities ended. One women was older. In fact, she was in her…

Michael is my youngest and most strong-willed son. Of course, he got that from his father. 🙂 Disciplining him was not easy since I didn’t always understand the ways of this child. I remember when he was ten months old; I asked the doctor what was wrong with my baby. He bites, screams, and sits…

God is not ashamed to be our God

I was the fifth child of seven born to my parents. I was the fourth of six girls. Here’s where most people say, “Your poor father!” My parents had a significant age gap between them; my dad was fifty-years-old when I was born. By the time I was two months old, my brother died from…
