Last week I had the opportunity to share my testimony and the book “Finding Healing” with a group of women. Even though I’ve shared our testimony many times, this time, it started me thinking. You see, nowadays I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about all we went through in the past. Yet, as I retold our story, I was overwhelmed by the awesomeness of all that God did in our lives and what is available because of the cross. It started as I began telling the story of the

Have you ever felt like there was an alarm going off in your head and your heart screaming, “Danger! Keep out!! Stay Away!!”? Here’s what I’m learning about listening to that voice instead of doubting myself.
Sometimes I think we are a little too hard on Jonah. Now don’t get me wrong—disobeying God’s direct order and winding up as a whale’s lunch is never a good life plan.
