Push (Part II)

Push (Part II)

(This is the second part of one my top-ten favorite sermons from 2022 by my pastor, Brother Johnny Wade.  In case you missed it, last week was Part I.)  Every church in the book of Revelation, no matter their problems, he tells them, “Overcome.” Stay faithful.  It...

Push (Part I)

Push (Part I)

This is another of my top-ten favorite sermons from 2022 by my pastor, Brother Johnny Wade.  I include my notes here and hope that it helps you as much as it helped me. After I’ve spent time being around young people for thirty years, I think he’s spot on!  My notes...

Spiritual Bookkeeping 101

Spiritual Bookkeeping 101

If you dislike bookkeeping, you might not understand how the Spirit spoke to me in December. In December I was balancing some books---which can be pretty interesting. In accounting everything is always affected in more than one place.  One of the exciting things (and...

Don’t Hand over Your Gift

(I’ve listened to broadcasts before that did a “top of the year.”  As we are ending 2022, I would like to share one of my favorite messages from my pastor, Brother Johnny Wade, from this year.  Consider this one of the “top of the year” for me.) “Will a man rob God? ...

O Come All Ye Faithless

O Come All Ye Faithless

I admire songwriters, the people who can take emotions and thoughts and put them to rhyme and a tune, making it powerful.  I must confess, that has never been me.  I’ve only tried to write a song a couple times in my life.  One time was when I was a young teenager...

My Defense

My Defense

Home

Alligator Attack

Alligator Attack

Many years ago, I read in Reader’s Digest about an alligator attack.  I’ve never been able to find the article again to brush up on the details.  (If anyone is able to find the article I’m referencing, please send it to me.) The way I remember the article, a boy was...

Keeping Step Part 2

Keeping Step Part 2

When I got married and moved to Kansas, I found several of the pianists had a different style than what I had grown up with.  My mother-in-law was one of these.  My husband, Todd, calls it the “Kansas swing.” There are songs in our hymn book that I have never heard...

Keeping Step Part 1

Keeping Step Part 1

A couple weeks ago, Sister Sholly from our church passed away.  This has sent me into moments of reflecting (mixed with urgency as I realize that we are not replacing these older ones!). She didn’t give long testimonies.  Usually, she just gave a few simple words. ...
