(weekly I write a five minute “doctrine talk” based on the doctrine in the passage of scripture we are studying in “People of the Promised Land 1 – Bible Study Fellowship”) Hannah’s prayer after dedicating Samuel included prophecy, and God prophesied what would happen to the house of Eli. The doctrine for 1 Samuel 1-3 […]

Have you ever received news so shocking that the life you knew would never again be the same?   Or perhaps you were given information or your thinking was challenged to the point of senselessness? You thought what you knew was true only to find out it wasn’t and you struggled with the reality of how […]

…there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum. When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to him and begged him to come and heal his son, who was close to death.  “Unless you people see signs and wonders,” Jesus told him, “you will never […]

Speckle Stories are testimonies of God in my life. I tell them to my students hoping they will see God too. It started about 15 years ago with my middle school physical education class. These girls were very special and we shared more than PE together, we shared life. Most are now graduated from college […]

The benefits of reading are obvious. Reading improves vocabulary, writing skills, imagination, knowledge, as well as decreases stress by promoting relaxation.

Most have seen a least one news report of a grieving mother whose child’s life was recklessly or purposefully taken and her response is, “I forgive them.” Is that possible?

It looked familiar, “desire mercy, not sacrifice.” Indeed, it shows up twice in the Old Testament and three times in the New Testament. […]

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. Isaiah 55:8 It’s been almost a year since the publication of Finally Home and I wonder if God is done with it yet. I carry one with me everywhere I go, it’s in my gym bag, my purse, and […]

Thereafter, Hagar used another name to refer to the Lord, who had spoken to her. She said, “You are the God who sees me.” Genesis 16:13 A dozen of long stemmed roses in various colors, a bouquet in a glass vase, appear on my desk on a mid-Friday afternoon. I was too busy to notice who […]
