WWJD-First, Let Me…?

I had the immense honor and pleasure a bit ago of baptizing my mother-in-law. I’ll share the details of the day in a different post (one related to silly prayers), but I have to say..the feeling was incredible. The honor of being the one chosen to participate with the Holy Spirit is one that really [...]

WWJD: Pray for those who hurt you

I went to therapy the other day. I am not too proud to admit that I am a Christian. A mental health provider. A pastor. And I am in therapy. I can imagine that during this time of upheaval and isolation many people are. As a therapist, I can attest to the growing numbers. So [...]

Left you wondering if they were really who they seemed to be? Why they didn't think you could hold space for their truth? Or [...]

WWJD: Kindness

Never let loyalty and kindness leave you!    Tie them around your neck as a reminder.    Write them deep within your heart. Proverbs 3:3, NLT Kindness. What do we often think of when we think of random acts of kindness? Pretty words? Random gifts? The second portion of 1 Corinthians 13:4 states that LOVE is kind. But think [...]
