“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23, NIV) One king held the frankincense, one king held the myrrh. One king held the purest gold, and one King held the hope of the world. Greetings to you! I was inspired to write this December newsletter while at my sister’s last weekend, helping her clean her house and prepare for the holidays. As I was dusting the window shades, I thought back to how I used to clean her house to earn extra money during my jobless… read more

“We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on You.” (2 Chronicles 20:12, NIV) In the times of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, the Israelites found themselves facing a formidable invasion by surrounding enemies. The king’s plan of defense was simple—fast, pray, and seek the Lord. Jehoshaphat stood in the assembly of Judah and called upon the name of the Lord. Second Chronicles 20:12 records the final words of his prayer: we do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you. Though the historical account of this time in the life of Jehoshaphat has many… read more

“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.” (1 John 4:16, NIV) Dear Friends and Family, Today was a difficult day.

As soon as my feet hit the floor, my thoughts started spinning ’round a situation that has been causing me quite a bit of angst. For most of the day, I was distracted by an attempt to understand exactly… read more

“Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established.” (Proverbs 16:9, NIV) Dear Friends and Family, Two years ago, on February 20, a small group of friends gathered in my living room and envisioned a ministry which would offer affordable Christian counseling to young women. As you know, from that meeting, Restoration Place Ministries was born. It is hard to believe that we have made the two-year mark and are now a few months into year three! I had no idea the adventure that God had in store for me! Not only has He surprised and delighted… read more

“I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” (John 12:24, NIV) Dear Friends and Family, The world in which we live is so far from what the Lord Almighty originally intended. It is sin-sick and imperfect. Evil abounds and shakes the earth beneath our feet. We can feel as if we’ve been hurled into a canyon, which a moment earlier was no where in sight. This has become much more evident to me as I’ve recently begun working… read more
