Posted on

If you are one of many redeemed saints who can thankfully and enthusiastically shout to Jesus, “You Found Me!” then “Grace Got You,” and you are now a “Lifer” in Him. And if that’s the case, it all started when you heard and responded to the “Best News Ever“—the gospel of grace in Christ Jesus. […]

Why I Wrote This Book

Posted on

I never in a million years would have thought God would call me to write. As I’ve mentioned in other posts, I didn’t even like to read, much less write—until my world fell apart and I desperately started seeking God’s direction and healing. I asked Jesus to come live in my heart at a Baptist […]

Has Grace Got You?

Posted on

If grace is a party, there’s no doubt in my mind that MercyMe’s 2017 album, Lifer, will be chosen as the official background music for it. It’s not at all hard for me to imagine Jesus, the saints who have gone before me, and a heavenly choir of angels celebrating up a storm to this […]

Are You a Lifer in Christ?

Posted on

I love wholesome Christian music that you can’t help but marry. Music you can dance to, walk to, work out to, clean house to, listen with your kids, grandkids, and friends to, worship God to, cry to, sing for joy to, and experience new covenant truth through. That’s why I decided to do a post series […]

The Triple-Crown Kiss from Our Savior

Posted on

(Since this post was published in May 2017, Justify became the thirteenth Triple-Crown winner in June 2018. Love, love, love his name!) My husband, Steven, is an avid sports fan.

Ready or Not, Here I Come! Part 2

Posted on

In last Wednesday’s post, “Ready or Not, Here I Come! Part 1,” I addressed a concern I have about well-meaning Bible teachers and authors (I used to be one of them) telling Christians what they need to be doing to get themselves ready for His return. I shared how in my search for answers I came to the […]

Ready or Not, Here I Come! Part 1

Posted on

The title of today’s post may remind you of hide and seek, a childhood game you used to play. As soon as the seeker finishes counting, he or she yells, “Ready or not, here I come!” and begins searching for everyone who is hiding. The first one found is the loser and he or she […]
