Confusion….

As a part of my Bible college education, I had to write lesson plans.  In one class, it was required to write a lesson nearly every week, and evaluate other classmates’ lessons.  One of the lessons I wrote was on the Fruit of Spirit: Galatians 5:22-23 (ESV) 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, [...]

Foundation of Love

Before my dream life disappeared… Before my miscarriages… Before finding an unknown mass in my brain… Before surgeries… Before chemo… Before radiation… Before I was aware of the lies that limited who I was… God loved me (Romans 5:8).  I belonged in His family.  In 2009, I was excited.  I was set up for my [...]

Peace though Prayer

Insurance… it is just one of those things that even the word “Insurance” brings a bunch of different emotions.  I understand that I should be grateful for insurance.  After 7 years of fighting a brain tumor, we still have money.
