Friends, I have big news!
My 43rd book releases June 1st. I Can Talk to God is a 24-page paperback picture book for age 2 to 8.
This book is not the next long-awaited novel in my Hearts Seeking Home historical romance series (watch for Mountain Whispers to land here this autumn), but this picture book is a project from deep in my heart.
Sometimes God seems far away because you can’t see or feel Him. But He is right there, ready to listen to you. I want to help kids know and embrace that truth. (more…)
What a crazy time, right? But also an amazing opportunity for parents and grandparents (in person or on Facetime, WhatsApp, or Zoom)!
With all this extra time with your kids and grandkids, you might be looking for ways to encourage their Spiritual Formation.
I want to come alongside you and offer some ideas and resources. Later this week, on my website on the Free Resources page, I’ll have some printable fun for you to use with your kiddos. In the meantime, how about an idea for a prayer that affirms God’s presence in their lives while helping them get the wiggles out? (more…)
Friends, heartache hits all of us. At one time or another.
Sometimes it feels like we’re still riding one wave of heartache when another wave hits. Seems like we may never again glimpse a peaceful shoreline.
If we live long enough you and I will stare down many harbors of heartache. The burial of a loved one. Betrayal. The loss of a career. A chronic illness. Financial disaster. The list is long.
Right now you might feel stuck in a season of sorrow. Or have a friend who is camped in a hurting place. This resource is for you. (more…)
Your friend is hurting, and you feel helpless. If you’ve passed your eighth birthday, you likely know what that feels like. And it seems that I daily find myself looking for ways to best serve a hurting friend.
One friend recently returned to the ring fighting cancer in a third round of chemo. Another friend navigates a new normal after burying her husband last year. Yet another writes her son in prison. One friend battles betrayal. Another takes it one day at a time in a rehab center. Yet another wrestles with crippling anxiety. And the list goes on.
We can’t fix their hurting or erase their heartache. But that doesn’t excuse us from doing what we can to ease the pain. Some. Even if it’s only for a fleeting moment.
In an upcoming post, I’ll talk about a variety of things we can do to reach out to the broken, but today let’s zoom in on prayer.
Oswald Chambers says, “Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work.” (more…)
