Walking in Forgiveness

The irritation was real as the frustrating thoughts swirled around in my head. Yet here we are a part of Youth With a Mission (YWAM) and we are supposed to have it all together, right? This November Bruce and I will be celebrating ten years of marriage. Like many of you who are married Bruce…

Gripping Fear

The e-mail came in and fear instantly griped me. I’ve been walking with the Lord now for over 20 years. You’d think nothing would shake my trust in the Lord yet here I was struggling with fear. Confusion swirled around in my head and my reactions to my children became short. My Spirit longed for…
