I don’t have a beautiful mind like the guy in the movie by that title who is a brilliant mathematician. In fact, when it comes to math, my mind is anything but beautiful. Equations go into my mind to scoff and mock. “Larry, get a load of this mind! She’ll never get us. We’re safe here!” (Yes, mathContinue reading “Math is easier without numbers.”

When I was 10 years old, my dad took the position of pastor at Emmanuel Community Church. Six weeks later, my mom died suddenly in our kitchen while sitting at the table. She had been reading a book, and drinking a cup of coffee when she began to collapse. Needless to say, it was aContinue reading “Home Base.”
Conversation Cafe Podcast
I will doing some traveling and speaking in the coming months (starting tomorrow!) and will be sharing about the messages in my new book, Brownie Crumbs and Other Life Morsels. But, before the “live” speaking started, I was able to record three podcast interviews- two of which have already been posted. I really enjoyed thisContinue reading “Conversation Cafe Podcast”

It’s My Book’s Birthday!

I’m so excited to announce that my first book, Brownie Crumbs and Other Life Morsels, is now available on Amazon in paperback, and for the Kindle. You can find it here: Also, I had a book trailer made to give everyone aContinue reading “It’s My Book’s Birthday!”
One of those days.
Yesterday, before the sunrise, my oldest child stood in front of his middle school peers and shared his story. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) group meets once a week in the cafeteria before the first bell of the school day. One Wednesday each month they combine with another middle school FCA in town. They join their groupsContinue reading “One of those days.”
Finding Sense In The Common.
I pull the spoon out of the dishwasher and stack it with its fellow tablemates in the drawer. My motions are robotic. I do this same thing almost every single day. It is such a common task that I don’t even have to concentrate on what I am doing. I push the clothes into theContinue reading “Finding Sense In The Common.”
The Eyes of the Beholder
I remember holding my infant daughter one day and being struck with a realization about beauty. Although I believed I looked like “death warmed over” in my sweat pants, greasy hair and smeared make-up, her eyes reflected a different woman. She looked up at me as though I was the most beautiful creature she’d ever seen.Continue reading “The Eyes of the Beholder”
The Visible Woman
Her real name is Susan Storm Richards, but most know her better by her alias: The Invisible Woman. According to Marvel Comic’s website, this member of the Fantastic Four has powers that allow her to “render herself wholly or partially invisible at will.” This could be handy. There are moments when I’d enjoy being invisible.Continue reading “The Visible Woman”
Where I Want To Be.
My left hand rested on the top of the steering wheel freeing my other hand to hold the warm travel coffee mug. Through the speakers the morning weatherman projected a mix of sun and storms. Seemed about right. A new front was moving in. Late August meant the seasons were about to change. Summer wasContinue reading “Where I Want To Be.”
