20 Places You Might Meet The One

0

I’m often asked how my husband and I met.  It’s a natural question.  I’m from the Chi and he’s Aussie.  A quick glance and conversation with us just begs the question how the two of us found each other from across the ocean.  It’s a beautiful and amazing story of how I see God getting involved in our lives. I have my own ideas about this thing called “the one”, which you can read about here.  But, my husband, is indeed “the one” God has said yes to.  He’s the one I love, the one I chose and the one […]

BREW: Brewing Anger

0

When most people hear the word brew they probably think of tea or coffee or maybe even beer.  Actually, who am I kidding, they probably think of beer first. 🍺 When I think of the word brew, immediately, anger comes to mind.  I’m not an angry person in the sense that I throw things across the room, but I’m very impatient.  I want things to happen and work out now, and that impatience can translate into anger if things aren’t happening as I imagine them.  My impatience serves me well when it comes to accomplishing gargantuan projects that have never happened […]

WARDROBE: Major Wardrobe Change

0

My wardrobe changed dramatically while I was pregnant.  However, I didn’t buy maternity clothes.  My husband thought I took it as a personal challenge to not go out and buy maternity clothes.  The truth is, I didn’t. Early on in my pregnancy, I thought nothing was fitting – an idea my mother-in-law promptly scoffed at.  With a sense of knowing she said, you’re not even big yet. So I waited and waited and waited.  I definitely got bigger, but I never got to the point where I needed to buy maternity clothes. One day, after many mornings of frustration, I […]

PAINT: Paint by Numbers Christianity

0

My mom made sure to keep my brother and I busy as kids.  One of the activities I remember well is sitting at the kitchen table doing paint by numbers. Little black and white pictures outlining the shape of the design. Small pots of bold, primary colored paint and a simple plastic brush with all too flexible bristles. Each section of the painting was marked by a number that indicated the color you should paint the area.  Bit by bit, color by color, the painting slowly took shape.  By the end of the masterpiece, you had surely graduated from preschool […]

WALK: Walk Humbly With Your God

0

When I lived in Lebanon, I had to walk most places I wanted to go.  Walking was often very limiting because it took 10 times as long to get any where.  If I had to get groceries, I had to hitch a ride from a friend or colleague.  Add to that the University was situated on a hill – a very steep hill mind you.  Some days, it might as well have been Mt. Everest, with its impossibly almost vertical elevation. Not only did I walk that hill, I often ran it for hill training – to condition myself to do […]

Have you always worked in publishing? My initial training was a law degree, from which I developed a strong sense of the importance of language and the precise use of words. I have also worked in an academic setting, teaching English classes at a university while working on research. And teaching is a great way to learn, particularly focusing on what makes stories and communication work. What have you published? I have six books, including the novel Nemesis Train, plus six other collections that I have edited or co-edited. The most recent of these—Do Justice: Our Call to Faithful Living—is […]

4 Myths We Believe About Meeting the One

0

If you live on this planet and have watched any movies or TV series lately, you know as women we’re inundated with images of girls meeting “the one” and magically falling in love. The guys are always impossibly handsome with the best jobs, perfect hair and stylish clothing. From time-to-time, they have a relationship they must end in order to get with the movie’s heroine, but for the most part, everything always seems to resolve itself in the end. And if you’re anything like me, there comes a moment in your life when you sit alone in your room and […]
