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 ...

A Special Visit with Eric Metaxas

What a treat for our Ambassador staff to have Eric Metaxas with us last week and to hear him share about many topics close to his heart including his passion for his new book, "Miracles."  I'm pictured here with Eric along with my husband, Matt, and BreakPoint® producer, Bill Reitler (far left) and his wife, Debi (far right).

Eric keeps a very busy schedule so you might say that indeed, it was a miracle that we were able to host him at our office while he was in the area to speak at a packed house on the topic ...

Asking the Tough Questions

Don Stephens KYTXWhen Don Stephens had the dream-come-true opportunity to meet Mother Teresa in the mid-1970s, he was taken aback by the frankness in her purposeful question:

"Why were you born?"

Not expecting such a direct query, Don said that he "struggled through describing to her what was a dream that didn't have a full plan-of a hospital ship serving the poorest of the poor, particularly in Africa."

I heard Don tell this story last Tuesday night.  He said that Mother Teresa asked a follow-up question that day in Calcutta that was just as straightforward as the first:

"What are you ...
