It was late at night and everyone else was asleep.  I, once again, was wide awake worrying about an event that was three months away.

Her name is Sara.  Growing up, she was our next door neighbor and I don’t remember a time when I didn’t know her.   Throughout her life, she’s held many roles:  nurse, wife, mother, grandmother, even great-grandmother.  She volunteered at the Christian elementary schoo...

The other day I was having lunch with a friend at my favorite restaurant, but I could hardly concentrate on the food because the conversation was blowing my mind.   Specifically, we were talking about the role of women in ministry.  She was asking some questions that I...
