Now you are ready to capture moments that will forever remind you of the beauty you had a chance to lay your eyes on. And God sees that. Birds from all over the world; animals you never imagined to exist. One question absorbs your concentration: What is the story behind their pretty colors and shapes? ...[Read More]

Are You Fit to Lead?

Are You Fit to Lead?

I grew up playing simple games like Red Rover, Hide and Seek, Red Light Green Light, and Simon Says during recess and after school with my neighborhood tribe. Simon Says was a fave with us Big Kids. I relished tripping the littles up. The hardest one? Rub your belly and pat your head at the same time, except I’d demand the one and do the opposite; I’d pat my belly and rub my head. This sneaky swit ...[Read More]

It’s Time to Raise Your Ebenezer

It’s Time to Raise Your Ebenezer

It’s been a tough week, hasn’t it? The media has bombarded us with stories of hate and violence and fear. People behaving badly and taking out their rage and anger on the innocent and the helpers. The news and Facebook leave us empty and confused and worried. Our brows furrow and deepen as we ask ourselves the question, “Could this happen here? Has the world gone mad? Is this the end?” And then we ...[Read More]

Check Your Gaze, Girls

I will never poke fun of Peter again. Ever. Take a few moments to read Matthew 14:13-36. What are your thoughts?

Throwing Stones and Roasting Pigs: The Art of Letting Go

I live in a pretty incredible place. Who am I kidding? Alaska is STUNNING. No day is identical, and every day has the potential to be an adventure. The wildlife is crazy impressive. (Round of applause for no snakes or roaches!) Our summer sun never sets, and we’ve got mountains and glaciers and islands and rivers and ocean and volcanoes. And did I mention our lovely June and July temps? Who doesn’ ...[Read More]

No Tree is Taking My Place in the Choir

No Tree is Taking My Place in the Choir

“Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; and let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.” Let the sea roar, and all it contains; let the field exult, and all that is in it. Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the Lord; for He is coming to judge the earth. I give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His lovingkindness is everlasting.” 1 Chronicles 16: 31-34 I’ ...[Read More]
