It’s Time to Abort our “Life” Strategy

It’s Time to Abort our “Life” Strategy

It wasn’t the first, and sadly wouldn't be the last time I would sit with a friend in her shattered brokenness, our tears blending into puddles when she finally trusted me with her deepest shame: the story of her abortion. I knew her. I knew her faith; I knew her passion for the Lord. The thing I couldn't understand until that moment was that her knowledge of the depths of His tenderness and love flowed out of a walk she had taken alone with Him through darkness.   As we untangle the current Supreme Court decision, I have read so...

The Power of Life and Death is in the Tongue

The Power of Life and Death is in the Tongue

I didn't even notice Jesus was training me….isn't He sweet like that? If we knew where things were headed…We would probably freak out. That's how I found myself sitting on the front pew, low-key praying not to throw up or trip, but most importantly, to say nothing that would fall anywhere outside of the boundaries of God's truth to a church full of women.

His one problem is...

Doctor’s Orders: Make it Magical

Doctor’s Orders:  Make it Magical

You could feel the tension growing as the week progressed. Moving the bulk of an entire pediatrician's office over a weekend is an insane task. If anyone can make the impossible happen, it's Donna Yeiser. By Thursday evening, I was running back and forth, adding final details, tweaking my third mural in the hallway where each kid would pass. I had already spent weeks creating a magical world where kids could ponder nature with a colorful twist—and I was just getting started. Thursday, the old office shut down, and it was all hands on deck. Surrounded by the hustle of...

How to Pick the Perfect Gift

How to Pick the Perfect Gift

I've had a moment of clarity this Christmas season that I hesitantly want to share with you all.   I spent all the years longing for the perfect presents, the trending name brand, the coolest toys, the things everyone else would get, but also the best unique gift.   Lately, I realize I've shifted.  When people ask me for Christmas ideas, I struggle. Not because I don't want things, but because deep down, I long for more, and I'm not sure how to put it on a list.   I genuinely love to spend significant time planning and dreaming up...
