It has been a journey and a year of healing. I am thankful that I am here and able to type this short post.
God has been so good to us, and now here I am a pastor's wife once again. After a full year of recovery and therapy (including courses at Bible College), we are now in a church pastoring once again.
I hope to find new topics to post here, relating to ministry life and the joy it brings.

She wasn't supposed to wake up ever again, BUT GOD had other plans! My mom went into surgery yesterday and it was supposed to be a 5-6 hour surgery and it ended up being 8 hours. The doctors did everything they could but in the end they said she woild only last three days. The mess in her brain was a lot the swelling was completely filling her skull (sparing some yucky details). She was on the ventilator in the ICU and during the course of the night (early morning) she began to move! The doctors and nurses and Dad gathered around her bed and started asking her questions, she answered them all correctly! Pretty soon she asked for Dads hand and she spelled the letters D-R-Y and pointed to the tube in her throat. She was thirsty. Later on today they took the tube out. She is talking! She wasn't supposed to be able to see but she can! Her personality is still the same! She still remembers everything! She can hear and carry on conversations!
These are the words of my daughter as I went into surgery for a brain infection. This has taught me that God is in control over everything. I am doing much better, but still have a long way to go for recovery. I thank God that I am still here to write and continue to spread His word.

clean up the mess. You hurt, big-time. You feel alone, scraping for answers
in the bottom of your third tub of "Chocolate Therapy" ice cream. You think
you'll never find anyone as good as he was, e-ver.
But what if... he did you a favor?
He Did You a Favor is an empowering, humorous, hands-on guide
with straight talk and advice to help you break away from Mr. So Very Wrong
and break through to the life you desire.

People often pit grace against moralism. And they should. Moralism circumvents heart-changed morality. We need moral men and women, but moralism damages the foundation of heart-change.
It's okay to pit grace against moralism, but let's not pit grace against morality. Grace is the source of real morality, and grace--thank God!--breaks the bars of moralism that imprison us.
Is Sunday School Destroying Our Kids? exposes moralism for its false pretensions--the sham that it is--and it moves our hearts to believe the gospel, for the first, or the hundred-and-first, time.
