Praying for a Movement, Part II

Praying for a Movement, Part II

Thanks are in order. A while back, I requested prayers for, um, a movement. As in, my 4-year-old daughter needed to expel a certain marble she swallowed. Well, prayers were answered. The “before” and “after” X-rays photos (shown here) tell the story. Everything came out ...

To Write Love On Her Arms

To Write Love On Her Arms

Today, I’m wearing a bright-pink shirt with the words “To Write Love on Her Arms” written on the front. I had spotted the shirts before at Christian musical festivals, and also had noticed some Christian musicians wearing them during concerts. But I didn’t know what it ...

Light of the World

Light of the World

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 Our family spent the last three days at LifeLight music festival, a 72-hour jam session for Jesus. His Light was present all over the festival grounds, where more ...

Living Water

Living Water

I like to write about encountering God in unexpected places. But it’s immensely reassuring when you sense His presence in the places you’d most likely expect it, like at the side of a baptismal font. That’s where my husband, Scott, and I found ourselves Saturday night. We were honored to serve ...

WWJB: What Would Jesus Buy?

WWJB: What Would Jesus Buy?

I am a sucker for Jesus stuff. I have a drawer crammed with Jesus T-shirts. I have four or five versions of the Bible, and I own enough Jesus bling to consistently get me in trouble at airport security checkpoints. I wear a toe ring with three crosses on my left foot, a framed Bible […]

The Gospel According to Dylan

The Gospel According to Dylan

Every Sunday, lots of churches preach from the same “lectionary,” which is a schedule of Scriptures appointed for Christian worship on a given day. So, today, Christians in churches around the world heard the story of Jesus, as told in Matthew 14. Here’s the short version: Jesus had just ...

Stones Cry Out

Stones Cry Out

I came across a peculiar story about a 400-year-old granite slab being auctioned off on eBay, that purportedly bears an image of Jesus on the cross (see photo). This falls in the category of the pancake Jesus, the Virgin Mary grilled cheese and the Fish-Stick Jesus. While I don’t think ...

Praying for a movement

I’ve prayed for movements before. This prayer has equal fervency. Anna, my 4-year-old, swallowed a marble that has lodged itself in the maze of tubes between her stomach and, um, you know … Anyway, I’m praying for a movement. Will you join me?

Faith Journeys, Burning Hearts

My all-time favorite Scriptural walk of faith is the bookend to the Gospel of Luke. In this story, two people — faces downcast, feet shuffling — are headed to a village called Emmaus. They’ve just heard the news: Jesus of Nazareth has been crucified. A stranger joins them on the walk up the ...

Frassy Goodness

A definition is in order. Here at my blog, and in my real walkin’-talkin’ life, I often use the word “frassy.” As in, “I want to squeeze the cheeks of my frassy girls.” Or, “I woke up feelin’ all frassy and decided to have ice cream for ...
