“God is passionate about having all of your worship and devotion. Good gifts can become threats when we allow our affections for them to outgrow our desire for God Himself.” Inseparable, p. 146 My husband and I, along with our 2.5-year-old son, have been through A LOT the past year. Almost a year ago we … Continue reading Inseparable Journey: Worshiper Fulfilled
“As God's living 'temples,' our lives are constant, living, breathing symbols of His grand rescue plan for all the world.” Inseparable, p. 130 [This chapter was the most challenging one of all for me to write, but also one of the most important to me. It started out as three chapters, if I remember correctly, … Continue reading Inseparable Journey: Dwelling Occupied
"Not only are we indescribably loved; we're set free to live as though we know it is true." Inseparable, p. 76 I have loved the past several weeks we've spent in Part One: New Creation. As we enter into Part Two: As We Go, we turn our focus from our initial salvation to the life … Continue reading Inseparable Journey: Saint
I love the kinship that's being built in our Inseparable Journey Facebook group. I pray that God will also give us relationships "in real life" that will encourage, sharpen, and build us as a result of these 13 weeks we're all spending together. Facebook and blog posts are amazing, but they can't replace those face-to-face, … Continue reading Inseparable Journey: In Christ

It's one of those things I always dreamed would happen but had no idea how it would. Then I learned how it could happen, … Continue reading this is the day
I'm not really sure why someone like me got to write a book. Because I'll be honest: I often feel like I'm a total mess. I think many of us would like to read books written by experts who have their lives together and can offer a lot of answers. And, well... that just doesn't … Continue reading So… I wrote a book
Paul said he tried to be "all things to all people." Haven't we always been told that we should stand out and be different? Can a person "be different" and yet still coexist peaceably with others?
I have a really good life. But sometimes I find that there is a part of myself just waiting to burst out--to use an overly-used but really perfect metaphor--like a butterfly from a cocoon.
