Life can be hard . . . even leading through puddles at times. About five years ago, my husband, Ron, and I decided to climb Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire. He had climbed it with a group of friends at the age of 26 and knew I would love it. As soon as we filled […]Read More
It’s a bit cold to be sitting in my tree-house this morning, but as I think about what to write, I notice my view has changed. Trees are down, some blocking my path and others are no longer standing next to the stream. There are even more snapped limbs, a few still dangling precariously above. […]Read More
Consider for a moment the original state of Adam and Eve; they were the only beings created in the precious image of God and made to live forever. They dwelt in a magnificent garden where all their needs were met, and above all, they communed with their Maker on a daily basis. Who could want more? Eve. She […]Read More
When there is no expectation of better things, troubles eat away at the soul and leave a sense of hopelessness. Even those who trust in the Lord can have their faith shaken when prayers aren’t answered and sickness or struggle become a part of one’s reality. Expectancy wanes and doubt replaces hope when there is […]Read More
In the past few weeks I’ve heard the expression “me time,” over and over. Now this could sound a bit selfish . . . Yet the people saying it are some of the most unselfish people I know!

Wow!!! My dad gave me your book the other day. I was SO excited. I’m about to start Chapter 4 but wanted you to know that I was having a very frustrating evening last night and was sitting on my couch crying over a current project. I picked up the book and started up where I left off – God’s timing is so perfect. I began to read about not putting pressure on yourself with unrealistic timelines or expectations. God began to minister to me. I can’t wait to read the rest of the book!!!

Arleen Jennings came to speak at our Ladies Tea in March. Many of the women present were in the midst of reading her book on creativity. We were all blessed by the words that she shared with us that night on how we were made to be creative and the need to practice our creativity. Several times throughout her talk I could feel that it wasn’t Arleen speaking but the Spirit of God through her. The message was exactly what we needed to hear and met us on a personal level right where we are at. Arleen would tell stories of her journey to creativity that were very touching and I appreciated the way she was willing to take the risk and reveal her heart to us. We all were ministered to that night.
