*A portion of the following post was written a year and a half ago. For the last couple of weeks it’s been on my heart so I went back to it and reread it just now. I updated the “list” as life’s circumstances have changed, but the truth remains: on any given day, somewhere in […]
“We’re not keeping quiet, not on your life!  Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace.  There’s far more here than meets the eye.  The things we see now are […]
Eleven years ago, it was bitter cold in Denver, Colorado. 2 or 3 degrees, if I remember right. The chill is still part of my memory, though most of me felt numb. Jason went out to the parking garage of Children’s Hospital to pull up the car and let it warm up for a few […]
…ANYTHING at all, to make a lasting contribution to the world, regardless of experience or finances, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I don’t really remember either, but living life by the Holy Spirit is harder than the […]
I want to share a link to a movie that will be at the Tribeca Film Festival that may or may not affect you or someone you know or love. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I know there are many in the medical community that are still truly healers by nature, […]
I finally chose not to wear eye makeup to church yesterday. You’d think I had learned a long time ago…I was just too sad to attempt application. At least I cleared out my sinuses…You know that book about the kid with the “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day”? Well, that’s how yesterday started, and […]
People ask me how I continue to do it? How do I go on without Noah? The title above sums up my life because it’s literally how I have to do this. I got an email from a woman who recently lost her mom unexpectedly. To protect her situation and identity, I won’t share the […]
