Dear friend, ………. The Lord has led me to a level of courage and boldness in life and ministry that I didn’t think possible for a woman with a background of brokenness and shyness as great as mine, but to Him I give the glory for He leads me continually into the lives of others with messages both verbally and in writing to bring praise,…

“I delight to do Your will, O my God, And Your law is within my heart.”” Psalm 40:8……. “You can pretend you didn’t hear me because you don’t want to hear what I told you,” the Spirit of God spoke to me. “Or you can accept you heard me and put your trust in me and go ahead and do what I’ve told you.

The result was the same. Heartache. In an already aching heart. I responded in the way I have been taught by the Lord Jesus Christ to respond. I went…

Dear friend, I was researching possibilities for some much-needed ministry help when I stumbled upon an advertisement online effectively offering to create a video whereby Jesus would say in the video anything the person wanted Him to say. Funny? No. Shocking, devastating, tragic, and a sign of our times, yes. Who are we as humans to put words into the mouth of the Lord and…

Dear friend, …….. What’s that gibberish? I don’t like text messaging, but I’ve given in and started to do it simply because it’s too hard to avoid when so many people are using it these days to communicate. One day I received a text message from someone I had just spoken to over the phone with the following gibberish. “IGWT!” It was gibberish, wasn’t it?…
