At dawn on Sunday, Mary Magdalene slipped into the cold Jerusalem morning. Her destination was the garden, where they buried Jesus. Just two days ago, she watched in disbelief and agony as He was tortured and died. She was also there with Jesus’ mother, Mary, as they took His body down from the cross and...

For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7 Ironically, the mountain which I found myself clinging to for dear life was named, Oh Be Joyful. Truthfully, I would have described it as menacing, foreboding, or fearful, anything except, joyful. It wasn’t even a pretty mountain. Instead, it was a mass of ugly...

Nearly six years ago today, I sat nervously in my living room and waited for Justin to pick me up for our very first date. After weeks of emails, phone calls, and text messages, we finally planned to meet in person. If you’ve seen the movie “You’ve Got Mail” with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks,...

This past weekend, those of us who live in the USA celebrated our nation’s freedom. Each year we commemorate the time when a rag tag team of revolutionaries fought and won against tyranny. It was on July 4, 1776, that representatives from the thirteen colonies gathered to sign the Declaration of Independence. This act, 240...

It all started quite suddenly. One day I felt like an 18-wheeler smacked me, leaving me completely depleted of energy and strength.  For real, I’ve never felt so exhausted in my entire life. I didn’t know what was happening as I crawled to bed every night at 7pm, because I couldn’t hold my eyes open....
