But the Lord Stood by My Side

I sat in shock listening. Someone I considered to be a friend had been upset with me for months, and she had been talking about me with a couple of mutual friends. We had served together on a ministry leadership team at our church for years. Both of us had volunteered countless hours pouring our hearts and our lives into the women of our church. All the while, I assumed we fully supported one another. But a friend had told her I didn’t agree with her leadership style based on something I’d said ...

Pro-Trump Retirement Community The Villages Is Descending Into Civil War

When an elderly man was filmed shouting “white power” while driving through America’s largest retirement community on a golf cart, it was the latest installment of a culture war Chris Stanley had watched unfold for years.“Battle lines are drawn,” Stanley, who serves as president of The Villages Democratic Club in the enormous town geared toward well-kempt retirees in central Florida, told The Daily Beast. But the scene—which was amplified when President Donald Trump approvingly tweeted it before...

Do You Feel Guilty Because You Can’t Get Pregnant?

Feelings of guilt and shame are common for women who can’t get pregnant. Men, too, struggle with shame and guilty feelings if they can’t “produce” a baby. Sometimes husbands and wives blame each other. I get comments from wives whose husbands make them feel guilty for not getting pregnant. This is ironic because there is a 33% chance that the pregnancy isn’t happening because of male fertility issues! Men who shame or guilt their wives for not conceiving have no idea how foolish they’re being. N...

When We Listen, We Hear God

She was like a blessing chasing me down, pressing her way through the crowd of women to catch up to me. Though I flowed along in the sea of sisters attending the women’s conference, I was a wave that stood out. I am 5’9, deep brown, with gravity-defying, big, bronze-highlighted locks that surround my head like a crown. She reached out and grabbed me.  “Hi,” she said. “While you were praying in the chapel, God prompted me to tell you something. But you left while I was praying for someone else...

Two Conferences God Used in Unexpected Ways

I’m not a huge fan of conferences. I’ve been to so many over thirty years of ministry that I’ve grown a bit weary. I can think of two conferences, though, that God used in an unexpected way in my life. 2014 TGC Atlantic Canada Conference The summer of 2014 wasn’t a great one for me. I was invited to speak at the TGC Atlantic Conference. The real draw for me, though, was getting to hear the main speakers: Ray Ortlund, Jr., and Scotty Smith, both men I admired. I’ll never forget some...

Church Hosting Trump Celebrates Air Filters That Kill ‘99.9% Of COVID’ In Minutes!

Great news from the Phoenix church where President Donald Trump is scheduled to address a large crowd on Tuesday amid a COVID-19 spike in the area: You’re safe here! That’s the word from the senior pastor and chief operations officer of Dream City Church, whose Phoenix location will host the President and a long list of GOP stars, including two governors and several members of Congress, for a “Students for Trump” event that could draw 3,000 people. “When you come into our auditorium, 99% of C...

The Teacher Is Always There

The other day our mower just stopped working. I went out to mow, and it just wouldn’t move. We knew this day was coming. We had been using the same mower for many, many years on a lawn that was too big for it. So we had already had conversations about a new mower. It seemed everyone loved the zero turn mowers — the ones that have two levers to steer instead of a steering wheel. We researched and looked at several places that carried them. Each one said the same thing: once you mow with a zero tu...

Where Do We Go From Here?

Sadness. Anger. Heaviness. Confusion. Fatigue. This is what we’ve been feeling recently. This is what we’ve been hearing when we ask friends how they’re doing. Processing what’s happening in our world right now isn’t easy, and we’re guessing you’re wading through a tumultuous sea of emotions too. For many of us, there’s also a feeling of helplessness. What should I do now? Where do we go from here? Two weeks ago, five women from our (in)courage staff and writing team gathered to process together...

When You Long for One Real Friend

My husband swept the side patio as I hung four little lanterns on the cinderblock wall. I positioned four chairs in an evenly spaced square, marking the distance with my feet. Yes, that should be just fine. As the sun began to set, I plugged in a string of Edison bulb lights. The instant glow was like a warm welcome. I could hardly contain my excitement. I went inside and tucked my three boys in bed. “Can’t we stay up?” they begged. “We miss our friends too.” “I know you do,” I said. “But this i...

Five Friendship Mistakes I’ve Made and Learned From

I was typing so hard the scab on the inside of my finger split open. I was crying. It was black outside and black inside. There, in the dark, there was blood dripping out on all the black letters. My keyboard was like a crime scene. The blood didn’t stop me. It fueled me. It was connecting me to my pain. I typed chaotically and frantically until all my words were hushed, and the only thing left was the slow drying red over the hole on my finger. Words sealed back up my deep wound. Never before ...

Sir Lancelot flour

Sir Lancelot flour Submitted by RonT on June 4, 2020 - 12:37pm. Hi & thanks for reading my first post.  I've been bread baking for about three years, mostly sourdough and rye, and have generally had good results.  My wife, God bless 'er, surprised me today with a 50 pound bag of KA Sir Lancelot flour.  Now, I've never used it before, sticking with KA all purpose, bread & wheat flour, and after reading up on it, fear it would have too high a gluten percentage for satisfactory sourdou...

Pay Attention and Look for the Evidence

I remember sitting in my counselor’s office last year. I had a lot of things I wanted to talk about that day, and I had gone in with a mental list I was preparing to cover.  Before I could bring up any of the topics that I wanted to discuss, these words rushed out of my lips: “I am afraid to date. I don’t know if I will ever be able to date again.”  I stared at my counselor, surprised by the words I heard come from me. This was not one of the things I had been planning on discussing. And yet...

When All Is Bad, Remember What Is Good

Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s! Psalm 103:2-5 (NLT) When it looks like there’s nothing to praise God for these days, it’s time to pause and remember what God has done for us — to forgive us, heal us, and redeems us. In the rest of Psalm 103, King David ...

What in the World Is God Doing?

At the beginning of the year, when my husband and I realized we already had half a dozen dates spoken for, we sat down at our kitchen table to coordinate our calendars. We knew if we didn’t pencil them in, we might just find ourselves double-booked. For us, it was unusual to know so many dates this far in advance. As empty nesters who don’t need to arrange childcare anymore — last-minute road-tripping is how we roll. Seeing all those fun things blocked off in black and white got me excited. Some...

A Beautiful Scar to Remind Me of My Daughterhood

Do you have any scars? Most of us have at least one. Each scar tells a story. Take for instance this two-inch scar on my right hand. “Everybody hustle so we can make it in time for church,” I called out to the empty hallway. Five kids tumbled out. As a newly single mom, hurrying my children seemed to be my chief occupation. Never mind the fifty-plus hours a week I spent as a senior book editor at a major publishing house. I longed to sleep in and rest. But worship together was a priority. We all...

How to Walk Through Our Circumstances of Change

It was one of those moments when bad news shocked me to my core. I had no clear course of action except to fall down on the well-worn carpet next to my bed, sob my eyes out in my white cotton comforter, and pray the only word that came to mind: Help. Over the years, the Lord and I have met at that bedroom spot too many times to count. We met there when I was pregnant with my daughter and yet another test revealed problems. We met there when the military moved us away from a location I didn’t wan...

In These Days, Maintain Constant Love

The end of all things is near; therefore, be alert and sober-minded for prayer. Above all, maintain constant love for one another, since love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining. Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve others, as good stewards of the varied grace of God. If anyone speaks, let it be as one who speaks God’s words; if anyone serves, let it be from the strength God provides, so that God may be glorified through Jesus Christ in e...

When You Need to Step Away

The one who lives under the protection of the Most High dwells in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1 (CSB) The other day I told my friend, “Life is too short to do something that drains your soul.” This bit of truth rolled off my tongue easily that day because, in that moment, I was deep in the midst of a social media break. A growing restlessness in my soul, coupled with the prompting of the Holy Spirit, whispered to my heart that I needed to pull way back from the unending chatter of the i...
