Recently in church we were discussing the first official offerings the Israelites made in Leviticus. Having received their strict instructions and purified themselves, the new (and first) high priest, Aaron the brother of Moses, spends most of chapter 3 offering the first sacrifices to the Yahweh, the Holy[…]

This summer at Camp Barnabas was chock-full of GodStuff, but none more pronounced than what God taught me through our daily devotionals. Camp did 4 days of devos over Jonah– one day for each chapter. Multiply that times 9 weeks of terms and I got a whole ‘lotta[…]

Scrolling through Facebook the other day I came across an ad for a t-shirt supporting organ donation. It read, “The Ultimate Second Chance. #TransplantStrong.” It was a striking idea. As a nurse for 7 years in a neuro-trauma ICU, I was blessed and humbled to be a part of[…]

Our pastor recently told us that his daughter asked him an interesting question the other night. They were walking outside after dark and the little girl asked her father, “Daddy, why does the moon exist?” Hmmm, interesting question… At first glance, the moon doesn’t really do much does[…]

Reposted with gracious permission from my LIT sister, Heather Bock.   Two large earthquakes within two weeks recently shook Mexico–8.1 magnitude in Southern Mexico and Guatemala, and 7.1 in Central Mexico near Mexico City.

Jonah, my 3-year old and I have a game we like to play. We try to outdo each other in the love department. Usually our conversations go something to the effect of- Me: Jonah I love you to the moon. Him: I love you to the stars! Me:[…]

They say that everyone finds God in jail and in the hospital. As a trauma nurse I can attest that at least the second part of that saying is mostly true. In times of worry, stress, sickness, death- people do often, and quickly, reach out to God. Even[…]

My identity was stolen this summer… or so I thought. I was asked to give up my long-time job as a flight nurse, I left willingly…. to another RN job in the hospital. Then I was asked to give that up too. I left willingly, but with a[…]
