Heartache to Healing

Update:  The My Story Page is no longer password protected.  Thanks - Jana Over the last week, I've corresponded with a number of people regarding a new page on my blog.  It's titled My Story... To be perfectly honest it should be called Our Story because so many people I know can relate.  I wish [...]

A Transparent Life (part 3)

What is correction, how should Christians handle it and why is it needed?  I've pondered all of these questions through the years.  I've flourished because of a gentle and timely correction and as you may have read in my last post...I've withered as the result of harsh words spoken in an untimely manner.  So, how [...]

A Transparent Life (part 2)

It was 2007 and I had just recuperated from a painful miscarriage.  After almost five years of marriage, I was ready to become a mother. My arms were empty and my heart was aching.  I spent months planning and preparing my body to be able to carry a child to full term.  My eye was [...]

A Transparent Life (part 1)

I grew up telling on myself.  If I did something wrong and I felt guilty...I couldn't keep it a secret for very long.  But, if I did something that someone else thought was incorrect and I didn't agree...well then, too bad for everyone involved.  I wasn't going to budge, much less offer up an apology.  Not until [...]

The Wastelands

Boxes lined the hallway as I made my way outside.  Barry was loading the remaining items into the U-Haul.  We turned around to soak in the view of our adorable house.  We had recently placed a huge amount of time and effort into fixing up the place.  It oozed with Bishop handiwork.  Barry and I spent our [...]

Mindful of My Mind (part 2)

Growing up, my mother dealt with depression.  To say that she suffered heartache as a young woman would not do her pain justice.  She lost her mother to cancer at 19, her grandfather to cancer at 20 and her cousin, which was like a brother, drowned tragically when she was 21.  In the midst of this she got married and not [...]

Just Lettin’ My Hair Down

After my last post, which I mulled over forever... I started thinking about how hard it is to truly be honest about heartache, sin and disappointment when you are leading more than just yourself.   Because of that, I think there are a lot of minister's wives that are dealing with things in the quiet of their own prayer [...]
