Journeying to Intimacy

Back in 2010 my husband and I went through a journey that ended up in us leaving the corporate church – not our faith, just the Sunday morning building.  It’s a long story, but one of the deciding factors for me was my inability to see and know God through all the “to-do’s”.  My relationship with God was built on performance and...

How Big is God?

This is a question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately. How big is God, really?

I am working towards fixing this by reading through “The Economist” every week (another goal that is sometimes met, sometimes not). One thing that is evident is the mess going on in Europe and how politicians are working to fix some serious...

Living with Desire

Oct 07

I always find it interesting when you see convergence in your life – several things all combine to give you the same message. This time everything I’m reading is about passion and desire. That sounds a bit hot and sweaty, so let me clarify: I’m reading “Think and Grow Rich“, “The Success Principles“, “The Greatest...
