Hi Everyone,   Counseling in ministry is always challenging, especially when you deal with conflict.  More than once I have walked into a room charged with tension.  I remember one time entering a meeting that was called to resolve a serious conflict in a church.  Not only was everyone mad […] [READ MORE]

Hi Everyone,   There is an old saying, and we all have heard it said many times on television and in real life.  The phrase I’m talking about is this… “Do you want to hear the good news or the bad news first?”  This famous and common question is actually […] [READ MORE]

Hello from Michigan … Finally, home! This has definitely been a summer of “Firsts” for us!   From June 11th through July 16th we assisted a church in Harrah, Oklahoma, helping them in a variety of ways, including organizing their new pastoral search strategy.  Then, for me (Sandy), there was the ldquo;first” […] [READ MORE]

Hi Everyone, Have you ever had something terrible happen and you feel like Habakkuk, wondering if God has forgot who He is or, at the very least, fails to remember His promises?  Of course not, we believers wouldn’t never question God, right?  Right?  However, we may have a moment or […] [READ MORE]

Greetings from Ypsilanti, Michigan!  Question…  Has God ever changed your direction?  Have you ever experienced a circumstance where you had big plans for an event or ministry, you truly believed that God was directing those plans, yet, at some point, well into planning, all was changed … cancelled?  If so, Irsquo;m […] [READ MORE]

Dear Friends,   How many of you have read missionary newsletters that begin with ‘I want to share with you that God answered your prayers for us!’ or something similar to that.  Most of the time the missionary asked in a previous letter for everyone to pray that a certain […] [READ MORE]

Dear Friends,   I have been told that when a person enters the “Elderly” stage of life, there are certain things that start to happen.  One is you don’t bend as well and another is when you do bend, the movement is slower!  I have come to understand those are […] [READ MORE]

Dear Friends, Besides knowing the Lord God, Creator of the Universe, who personally rescued me from Hell to live with Him till the end of time and beyond – I think the best part of being a Christian is getting to spend time with my brothers and sisters in Christ!  The […] [READ MORE]

Dear Friends, It has been said that moving is a great adventure.  There is some truth in that, but another term that might describe it is insanity.  My dad once told me that living in a place for more than seven years was a mistake.  He was referring to the number […] [READ MORE]

Dear Friends, When Joseph was asked by his father, Jacob, to check on how Joseph’s brothers were doing tending the flocks of sheep, Joseph didn't hesitate.  He probably was aware of some of his brothers’ negative feelings about him, but I doubt if he even considered what might happen out in […] [READ MORE]
