Family Resemblance?

Family Resemblance?

In 2011, I went to the general conference of the Bible Missionary Church in Springdale, Arkansas. Since I’m not Bible Missionary, I didn’t know a lot of the people there. But I went with my cup upright, ready to receive something from God. The Bible Missionary push...

Means of Grace

Means of Grace

I’m done mourning. For eight months, I’ve thought of the things I don’t have. I’m sure those of you who have shared my journey in 2020 have heard my sadness. My denomination did not have campmeeting, preachers’ convention, or revivals. Our services, with the masks and...

Did You Vote Last Week?

Did You Vote Last Week?

Did You Vote Last Week? I voted last week. Actually, more than once. I’m not an extremely political person (please forgive me, all my Oklahoma subscribers), so I’m not someone who usually watches the election results. However, the last couple national elections, my...

Out of My Comfort Zone

Out of My Comfort Zone

“Elizabeth, you need to go down the street and talk to your neighbor,” my friend Sis. Donna Hazelwood told me. “I think she speaks enough English for you to talk.” It seemed so straightforward to Sis. Donna. She didn’t know that I felt like a deer in headlights. In...

Go Ahead and Judge

Go Ahead and Judge

A week ago, a little man that I love with all my heart drove me to the Tulsa airport.  It was early in the morning (We left at 3:30 a.m.) and quite dark.   Somewhere along the way, it began to drizzle, making the road even harder to see.  He didn’t do too badly until...

Is It Enough?

Is It Enough?

Lately, I have been haunted by a question.  “Is it enough?”  I’m watching loved ones fall away, people change, principles change, and positions change.  I am grieved, and this question keeps popping up, “Is it enough?”  Or sometimes, as I see someone walk away, a...

I’ll Help You if You Let Me

I’ll Help You if You Let Me

When my husband, Todd, was almost two years old in 1970, his baby brother Brent was born.  When Brent was six weeks old, my mother-in-law noticed that something was wrong with him.  He did not want to eat and did not act right.  My in-laws took him to the doctor who...

Courage, Dear Heart

Courage, Dear Heart

My burden was great.  It seemed like, once again, the battle would be lost.  Someone was on my heart, and I had fought for their soul.  Things were looking dismal.  It was a Saturday in October, two years ago, as I sat in the empty hall of the school where my husband...

I Have Enough for Both of Us

I Have Enough for Both of Us

One of my children went through a super-conscientious phase in adolescence.  Instead of freedom, this conscientiousness was used by the enemy to put him in bondage.  I would say, “I love you.”  And he would respond with, “Uh, I don’t know if I love you or not.” ...

Breath of Life

Breath of Life

"Slack not thy riding for me, except I bid thee."  II Kings 4:24 In a recent blog post, I was attempting to get back to ideas for children’s ministry.  I had received a text from one of my nieces Constance asking for ideas for her young teenage daughter who was doing...
