shades of gray…

As we enter a new year, I'm reminded of new beginnings, fresh starts, and adventures yet to be experienced. As we press forward with hopeful, resolute hearts, I know one thing is for certain. And that certainty will always remain. It is the indelible, unwavering Word of God. I like to think of it as... Continue Reading →

pursuing peace…

Back on the blog, with a monthly dose of Candor. I am finally able to blog after months off. What a whirlwind 2018 has been!

Falling into Humility…

Micah 6:8 says... And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. It's funny because I think many feel that having humility and being merciful is synonymous with weakness.  But I don't think that is the case.  I think that true humility... Continue Reading →
