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!


Praise-and-Worship - A wonderful gathering place where worshippers bring a vareity of gifts before the King of Kings.  Take some time there, be challenged to worship in fresh ways.  Praise-and-Worship

Catalyst 4 Christ - A ministry that draws believers of all backgrounds together to grow deeper in their relationship with Christ through conferences & retreats.  Want to partake? Check their "Events" tab for current info: Catalyst 4 Christ site


My Utmost for His Highest - Oswald Chambers -- This book is life changing! It will challenge you to be who God intended you to be.

A Love Worth Giving - Max Lucado -- My favorite author!  His words are so vivid the not only come to life, they call you in...

Jesus Calling - Sarah Young -- A life changing devotional.  What happens when you dare to spend some of your prayer time not just giving God a laundry list of needs, but sit quietly instead to hear what He has to say?  I challenge you to find out!


  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!

Gilgal – An unknown heart’s desire fulfilled

– An unknown heart’s desire fulfilled
My response to El Greco’s painting of “Christ on the Cross” circa 1600
You’ve haunted me since early youth captured, yet not knowing why. The agony was clear to see “languish” is the word that comes yet understanding escaped me and yet I still was drawn.
For years the image would come and then go. For years I’d ponder with sorrow For years I’d long to see you again And yet still not knowing why.
A fortnight passed and world away and I knew before I turned Your presence beckoned me Heart racing, feet rushing, boldly approaching You Causing alarm, laughable now, for it was love that drew me to You
Standing in Your Presence Tears of knowing joy Love so deep its painful Soaking You in Breathing You in Never wanting to leave Grateful for the most intimate gift.
Knowing now (even in the smallest part) leaves me in awe and wonder more. Oil on canvas, nay, but more.Heavenly power imbued. It seeketh and it haunteth till the work of God is fu…

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…

Bathing in the Word of God - Mercy et al

Bathing in the Word of God
Sitting, soaking in the living Word of God, letting It have Its way in our life cleanses us, invigorates us and prepares us for life - both here and eternal. (Sensing that this is just the beginning of a series,  hope it gives you a fresh perspective and appreciation for His Word.) Imagine an old claw-footed porcelain tub and imagine you in it as the Word and Words of God are poured out over you.This, the first bath, you are drenched with Mercy, it hits fresh and weighty causing your grateful hands to be raised as you humbly wipe your face, seeing yourself as you really are, maybe even for the first time – grimy little urchin grasping at life and yet empty-handed. And just as your eyes begin to see afresh and before shame can consume, Grace is poured long and slow, inviting you to lather up, let it wash away the filth. And the lather fills the tub and overflows as Grace has its way and as Forgiveness is seeped in you lay back and take a slow breath all warm a…
