Ann Vokamp - I received her calendar as a gift and it is awesome! Yes, I mean fearfully wonderful!  She has tasted and seen the goodness of the Lord and shares it with the world.  Her book One Thousand Gifts needs to be on your "Must Read List".  I am also enjoying her blog, I hope you do too: Ann's blog

Max Lucado - One of my favorite authors!  His voice carries you into the presence of God.  He has a rare grasp of God's Grace.  

Beth Moore - She pulls, pushes, stretches and downright forces you to grow!  If you've done one of her Bible studies, then you've chewed on the Word of God and savored every bite.  (Just an FYI- the first Bible study I ever did was her "A Woman's Heart: God's Dwelling Place" a study of the Old Testament Tabernacle.)  
Dawn Hamrick - Soulful sojourner whose transparancy affords a lovely view of Christ! See for yourself: Dawn's Thots

Andy Stanley - been blessed to sit under his teaching at the past few Catalyst West conferences and all I can say is wow!  Leader to leaders he presses us upward into the knowledge of God! I encourage you to be encouraged!

  1. I love you Auntie! You so inspire me and God's grace truly does pour out of you! Not into one neat little glass, but spilling and leaking through the cracks and brokenness to everyone around you. It's beautiful to be broken when we are the Children of God!

The Throne Room

Recently my sister and I had a conversation about the Throne Room of God and it reminded me of a precious encounter with The LORD a few years ago.  I share it that it might encourage you to enter His Presence, find the Love we all so desperately need, the Peace that surpasses all understanding, and an intimate relationship with The Almighty God through His Son, Jesus. Come, He is waiting…  The room is vast and i sense others there but do not see them. i feel all eyes are on me, yet it matters not.  i am drawn so strongly to the one before me that it's as though there is a tether in my heart that is being pulled in with each solemn footfall.  i am aware of nothing else, only this and only Him. The steps before me are gray, smooth, nondescript, but for the beautiful feet that rest upon the top one.  There are three steps and as i sit on the second step and pull the robe about me, i am aware of its vastness. It is deep scarlet red and Its train covers my every step. May a hunger for His P…

When the pain get too big

There are times when the heartbreaks of this life collide with our weakness and the pain gets so big that even breathing is hard.  It’s like being dragged under by the surf and tumbled over and over until up is down and you’re dragged along the bottom and raw wounds meet with salted surf and the searing pain of it is only a faint echo of the pain within your soul and you gasp for breath and flail helplessly, like a rag doll, until you’re eventually released upon the shore coughing up the brine of your own tears…
This is where I have been. Literally on the verge of tears at every moment.Memories, regrets, sorrow, missing, aching, loss - churning, growing to tsunami intensity threatening to overwhelm.Today I received a devotional from a Jewish Messianic site challenging us regarding the Sabbath.Oh, how my soul yearned for it.A Sabbath, a rest.But the to-do list haunted and I headed to the shower to start the day.All the while rest was beckoning to me…

At the Pleasure of the King

“I serve at the pleasure of ____” These words struck a chord and as often happens, I tuck them away until one day I awake to them running through my mind with a fresh context. I had been watching a presidential TV show and the staff member replied “I serve at the pleasure of the President.” I had seen these words in employment contracts but to hear it stated caught my attention.

This morning, as I was waking, an old scenario played though my mind. One I thought was long resolved so I was wondering why it came up. Then this seemingly disconnected phrase came to mind and brought new context. “I serve at the pleasure of the King.” Ok! So now this required some pondering, and pondering for me means writing before the precious thoughts are lost.
In this particular scenario I felt I was the offended party. But in fact, that was only true in part. The rest of my feelings were due to burnout and being overwhelmed. Regardless, when I look back from this perspective and layer the words given me…
