God-Incidence: Peace, on the Count of Three

God-Incidence: Peace, on the Count of Three

She confessed her fear two nights before the surgery. I pulled her little body in close to mine, while her lamp cast a purple glow across the bedroom wall. “Mommy,” her voice quivered. “I’m scared of the mask. I’m afraid it will hurt.” She’s 10 now, but ...

What Creativity Really Means

What Creativity Really Means

And this is how the day begins here every morning: The girls and I drive down our snow-packed country lane at 5 miles per hour. For one-third of a mile, I tarry along that stretch of gravel, steering between the creaking bones of undressed trees — all of them swaying under winter’s ...

God-Bumps on an Iowa Morning

God-Bumps on an Iowa Morning

I’m parked at the end of our country lane, right by the Lee mailbox and a long row of hay bales, all of them draped in frost. I watch the sun rise right up over our fields, cutting a hole through the fog.   I’m surprised by the beauty. My two schoolgirls, in the backseat, gasp. I ...
