I Became Inconvenient

After the initial shock of my son’s death, I became inconvenient. Elizabeth Kubler Ross finds acclaim for writing the most important book for caring for the dying, On Death and Dying.

My Worth is Untouchable

How the letter “Y” creates heresy? In women’s ministry today, I am hearing more and more good women leaders confuse the words worth and worthy.

Unloved From my earliest memories, I felt unloved.  I … Read More Unloved

We use this term in so many ways, but as I have sat in my darkness, the Lord opened my eyes to a few things. He … Read More Bitten… but not devoured.
