This is the Tomb

“Do not be afraid. I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.” (Matthew 28:5-6) What follows is an excerpt from a children’s Easter book I’ve recently written, which is to be published by Prescott Publishing just as soon… Read more »

Enough with the Excuses

      56 Comments on Enough with the Excuses

I don’t know who said it, but it’s true: “If it’s important to you, you’ll find a way. If it’s not, you’ll find an excuse.” Lots of wives have become experts at making up excuses to avoid something that’s extremely important to their husband. Don’t be one of them.

In Praise of the Manly Man

My husband and I had a lovely Valentine’s Day yesterday. He brought me roses and a huge box of chocolates, then took me out for dinner and a movie. I wrote him a poem. It’s not the first poem I’ve given him for Valentine’s Day, and it probably won’t be the last. Although I wrote it specifically for my husband,… Read more »

When the face of a friend… Read more »

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m posting a poem I wrote for my husband even before he became my husband. I gave it to him way back in February of 1987, and he still proposed a month later, so he obviously wasn’t marrying me for my poetic devices. I hope you’ll enjoy my little walk down memory lane. You’ll be gratified… Read more »

Pray Your Way to a Smoother Day

I was reading the biography of George Muller aloud to my children this week and ran across a quote concerning the value of prayer. Muller claimed that “four hours of work after an hour of prayer would accomplish more than five hours without prayer.” It was a belief that he faithfully put into practice throughout his life. Muller’s comment brought… Read more »
