Posthumous Guest Post – Walt Miller

Mentors.  What a treasure it is to have someone willing to come alongside us.  Someone older, wiser, and willing to invest in the next generation.  I have been blessed to have had such people in my life, especially during difficult seasons. Two such mentors, Walt & Jane Miller, will always hold a very special place…

Five Loaves & Two Fish

One of the most well-known miracles of Jesus began with 5 small loaves and 2 small fish – the feeding of the 5,000 (John 6:1-15).  Although 5,000 only accounted for the men present, not women and children.  Scholars estimate the number fed was actually somewhere between 15,000 and 20,000.*  Yet it all began with 5 small loaves and…

Margins

Have you ever been restricted to one page?  A letter.  A resume.  We type everything out and it spills onto a second page.  So, we edit.  Eliminate.  But we just can’t seem to squeeze everything we want onto one page.  So we adjust the margins.  We shrink and squeeze them until we can successfully cram…

Who are We Handing the Microphone?

I recently heard a celebrity share on a podcast that they have someone who sifts through their social media comments for them.  They filter out all the negative comments and highlight the comments worth their attention.  The interviewer sarcastically responded with: “Wait!

Our Stories Matter

In April I met with a local news station to share my story of Sexual Assault for Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM).  It might not make sense to everyone, but I jump at every opportunity to share my story.  Why?  Because our stories matter.  Our voices matter.  They need to be heard.  Only one person…

Dawn is Coming

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5 – NIV The darkest night of the soul will not and cannot last forever.  Regardless of what has brought on this dark night, take heart my friend, dawn is coming! I know, because I have been there too. You are…

Proclaiming Hope

If you have followed me for a while you or met me in person you may notice the presence of various shades of teal.  My website.  Images I post.  Mailers.  My Bible.  My Yeti.  My phone case.  This is not by chance nor because my favorite color is teal.  I surround myself with teal intentionally…
