Hiding Among the Baggage

Many years ago I had the great privilege of volunteering for ventriloquist, Gail Wenos.  She and her counterpart, “Ezra D. Peabody,” made a career of connecting with their audiences, both young and old, with poignant messages about believing in one another, teamwork, and making a difference.  They also had a unique way of tenderly sharing God’s love and the powerful, transforming message of the gospel. Since Ezra found himself traveling with Gail in a carry-on

Love Outside the Box

About fifteen years ago the Lord shared a vision with me.  I have to tell you I have received visions before but on very rare occasions and they are usually for other people.  This one however was for me and although I recorded it, wrote it down and even rewrote it a few times it’s only now that I truly see it’s significance in my life.  Isn’t it just like God to be patient with

“I am a fan of your future.”

  Recently, I had the opportunity to spend time with some teachers and coaches from my high school years.  These reunions were so special.  These five men and women played a huge role in shaping me and making me the woman I am today.  Each of them not only shared their talents and abilities with their students, they shared themselves.  They cared about us and invested themselves in us.  Although more than 30 years had
