I wonder if the creator of the arcade knew the phenomenon they would cause. I wonder if they knew how many pockets and purses they would empty so that a desperate child could play one more round of skee-ball in an attempt to earn a measly 500 more tickets in order to buy the red…

The farther we progress along the path of Christian discipleship, the steeper it becomes. But when we are committed to stay on the path, then even when it goes uphill and becomes more challenging, we can’t make a U-turn to look for an easier road. Such roads exist, but they do not lead where we…

Every once in a while God reminds us of how He is in the details. In tiny ways. Which makes me realize that if He knows about the tiny details, then He is certainly aware of the big details. And when the tiny answers come, they give me faith to wait on the Lord for the…

Before I became a university professor, I had big dreams of being a great artist. I was accepted to the University of Utah’s art school and earned a bachelor’s degree of fine art in painting and drawing.

I don’t know how things are going for you so far this year, but for me, it’s been a little crazy. All my grand, well-thought out plans to start the year with intention and organization have been challenged repeatedly with (seemingly) urgent issues and situations, and I’ve been a little discouraged.

A couple of weeks ago I found myself stuck in somewhat of a dilemma. I found that my mind was been consumed with worry, concern, and even some sadness. After a few days of this, one of my best friends came to me and asked if I was ok… he had noticed I hadn’t been…

C.S. Lewis said, “We are what we think we are.” I put that concept to the test about 3 years ago when I decided that every day I would say this phrase to myself. “I am a beautiful, healthy, courageous, dynamic, capable daughter of God.” I chose those five words…beautiful, healthy, courageous, dynamic and capable,…

Most mothers would agree that they learn much more from their little ones than they ever seem to teach—deep, heartfelt lessons about priorities, simplicity, and genuine altruism. This has certainly been a comforting truth to me over the past 25 years. Recently, while delivering clean clothes to my young daughter’s room for the millionth time,…
