the truth about the power you hold within you – #tellhisstory

the truth about the power you hold within you - #tellhisstory

So there are days when you just feel so weak. The tasks and obstacles loom before you like Mt. Kilimanjaro. There seems no end in sight and you don’t know how you can take another step. Those are the days I remember little Anne Melissa, the child in this picture. This sweet girl has had ...

In Case You’ve Forgotten Who You REALLY Are – #TellHisStory

In Case You've Forgotten Who You REALLY Are - #TellHisStory

I filled out a questionnaire recently for a nonprofit organization. It wanted to know my favorite hobbies, my job, my marital status, the ages of my children. It asked what I did, but nowhere did it ask who I really am. I’m not blaming the creators of the questionnaire. But I think it ...

The other day, I was at the bookstore and saw an entire shelf of books for sale under the heading “Finding Happiness.” I have read many of those books, and they are full of fascinating research and fun stories. But all of those books on that shelf are missing one thing. They are missing the ...

A bit of light for you, if you’re having a dark day – #tellhisstory

A bit of light for you, if you're having a dark day - #tellhisstory

Every once in a while, I leave the house before dawn with my camera. I stumble sleepily—sometimes still pajama’d and barefoot—out the back door toward my car. The car’s headlights cut holes in the dark, heading me aimlessly east along country roads. I want to get there—wherever “there” ...

The Secret to Dealing with Hard Times – #tellhisstory

The Secret to Dealing with Hard Times - #tellhisstory

This story begins at the side of a deathbed. It was 2014. But this isn’t a sad story about dying, as much as it’s a hopeful story about living. I was standing there – at the end of a life, at the side of a hospice bed, leaning over the dying woman. She was frail, […]

if you’re in need of a miracle – #tellhisstory

miracles

For years, I lived a life without faith. I put Jesus in the same category as comic-book action figures: strong and mighty on paper, but pure fiction and utterly useless in times of need.

how to take a compliment with grace – #tellhisstory

how to take a compliment

I was still new in my faith, and that morning, I sat like a firework in the front pew. My heart was eager, ignitable. Our church had a guest speaker, and I hung on every word, as if I were hearing the gospel for the first time. His fiery words were like a match on […]

if you’re feeling irrelevant – #TellHisStory

if you're feeling irrelevant  - #TellHisStory

Sometimes, I think I’ll run out. Run out of something to say here. Run out of hours. Run out of life. Of energy. Of purpose. Of time. Run out of being relevant anymore. The other night, at Bible study, our leader asked the question: “What are you most afraid of?” He gave us choices. Fear […]
