The Perfect Gift

My elderly father has been preoccupied lately with finding the perfect coffee mug. A year ago he convinced me the one at a local bakery was the perfect mug. So I bought it for him. Last month he found yet another one at a restaurant. The kind owner was willing to part with it. And then this past week, my dad came across the one cup he had to have. :-)

At one time or another we've all been in search of something "perfect"--job, home, purse (most women can resonate with this one), even soulmate.  Recently, I've been ...

Starting with Thanks

Reach Beyond EBook"Give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not."

I hear this call to action each holiday season on commercials aired for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  It's a message that really resonates with consumers--and me too.  And it should, for this call to action sounds like it could have come from Philippians 4:6 where Paul writes:

Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.  Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

This Thanksgiving, let's go a treasure hunt to discover more ...

Freedom in My Soul

I love the idea of journaling.

But I don't do it.

At least, I don't journal in the traditional sense.  I'll note certain moments in my journal, but I'll go days,sometimes  months, without an entry. 

What I am pretty consistent about though is journaling the reflections of others.

I deeply appreciate and take to heart words from those who have traversed through valleys and have grown deeper in their walk with our heavenly Father as a result.

Joni Eareckson Tada is one of those sojourners to me and many others.  She spoke at the True ...

A Different Kind of Freedom

Have you discovered that while you can have the best intentions with plans, sometimes we have to change direction and follow the course or prompting from the Lord?  This was the case two years ago at the Revive Our Hearts True Woman '12 conference when Joni Eareckson Tada took the stage and started singing.  After her message, Joni spontaneously invited Kristyn Getty to join her in singing the hymn, "Amazing Grace," not knowing how this would greatly impact and ultimately transform the life of one woman in the audience.

Brooke Boyer wanted nothing to do with God; she was angry ...

THE Great Story

This past weekend I finished one of the most delightful books I’ve ever read.  I don’t use the word “delightful” blithely.  Each chapter was like savoring every morsel of a sumptuous meal.  I was saddened when the book came to an end. 

The book was “As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride” by Cary Elwes (the Dread Pirate Roberts).  Actually, it was the audio book, which was read by the author with his charming British accent.  That actually enhanced the experience.

The reading was also ...

Walk the Talk

I've been asked about my job more in the past couple of weeks than I've been asked my whole life.  Between a few high school reunion gatherings (marking our 30th this year!) the "what do you do for a living" question came up time after time.

The response to my 23 year tenure at Ambassador is always the same, "You must really like what you do."

There is one significant reason I like what I do which I'm always quick to share -- it's a distinct privilege to represent quality Christian broadcast ministries and specifically, to ...
