Doing Good and Sharing with Others

New Life

Spring has to be my favorite season of the year. After the often times cold, dreary months of winter, it is so positive and uplifting to see the new plants emerge from the ground, the grass begin to green up, the trees blossom, and new leaves once more begin to grow. All of this...

Spring Cleaning

Within the last few years my adult daughter has started writing in a journal, and I am often the recipient of some of her musings (advice?) on her not so perfect mother. The latest text I received, from an unknown author, was “in the end, only three things matter: how much...

Women’s Ministry Devotion: Tell the Story

In the mid 80’s I was hired as the library director for a public library in North Central Nebraska. It was a job that I loved, primarily because I had the opportunity to work with young children. I organized and led the story hour program during the summer and checked out books...

What Do You Want To Be?

“So, what do you want to be when you grow up?” Without missing a beat, my four-year-old nephew blurted, “RICH!”. While a teachable moment, I admittedly smirked at his quick witted comment. Even at his young age, he could already understand the value our culture places on wealth....

Pray Without Ceasing

“Pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17-19 Praying has not always come easy for me. I struggle with how to pray, what to say, or wonder if I’m praying for the right things. Yet as a...

Devotion: Whatever

A quote I read on Facebook recently was “I thought growing old would take longer”.  It made me laugh at first but then I also started thinking of everything I had given up as I became this “old age”. I have to admit I’m not a fan of many of the...

Devotion: Make God Smile

As I’m writing this devotional, I realize that January is almost over – a time when many people find that those newly made “resolutions” are either going well or just not going at all! I’ve made and not kept resolutions too many times so this year...
