Growing up in eastern Ohio I was always considered, “the tall, skinny, shy redhead.” I stuck out like a sore thumb wherever I went and was usually the one that got in trouble because people could clearly see me!

It was a calm, crisp, and balmy Sunday morning in early January 2020, when I honed in on my husband’s words as they were delivered from the pulpit. I’m always attentive to his preaching, but this time my breath caught in my throat and my eyes widened a bit.
Find Part one here. Our broken hearts were very much like freshly tilled soil as we left the first church we had served in together. We next came on staff at a church that highly emphasized grace. They were as imperfect as we were, but they were safe. They were honest. They loved God’s Word […]

After over a dozen years of being in the same church, I’ve come to know the ins-and-outs of our building and a lot of the congregants. As plenty of you are in similar rural and small-town ministries, […]
I remember accepting Jesus as my Saviour as a small child. I was in my bedroom and I knelt down at my bedside and asked Him into my heart. I suppose I was about six or seven years old and it was a simple child’s prayer. Then I went downstairs and told my Mom what […]
When I was in high school and college, I spent a couple months in the summers of 2003 and 2007 in the jungles of Panama. I felt sure that God was calling me to be a missionary so I felt like the best way to prepare for that calling was to attend college to be […]
