How to make a Sabbath Box…

By |August 17th, 2017|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

In one of my favorite books on Sabbath, Wayne Muller writes: “Sabbath requires surrender. If we only stop when we are finished with all our work, we will never stop, because our work is never completely done. With every accomplishment there arises a new responsibility… Sabbath dissolves the artificial urgency of our days, because it liberates us from the need to be finished.” I ask myself, Do I remember weekly, daily, hourly, who my source is? Am I in charge [...]

Nothing is Wasted

I was thinking this morning how we all face difficulty and tragedy differently. Some go to anger and demand retribution, some go numb or dissociate and block it out and pretend nothing happened. Some go to God to try to understand, to find forgiveness. Some resort to substances, sexual activity or forms of extreme behavior. One thing we all have in common is we try to find some way to ease our pain. To remove the discomfort. To find peace [...]

By Angela Howard Every so often I read a book that’s so incredible I can’t help but become a crazy evangelist for it. If you’ve talked to me over the last month I’ve probably found a way to bring up this book. It wouldn’t be dramatic to say that Peace for Lifetime—Embracing a Life of Hope, Wholeness & Harmony Through Emotional Abundance by Lisa Murray  is a true life-changer—for your relationship with God, with yourself and with those you love.

Bringing Peace on a Cold Winter’s Night

By |December 24th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

By Angela Craig It was a cold winter’s night before Christmas. The wind wrestled with the trees as the rain beat the ground like the little drummer boy beat his drum. I was on my way from my last appointment of the day to pick up my kids for their afternoon activities. Racing the clock to get the boys to their activities on time, I decided to avoid the Christmas shopper’s traffic and take the back highway home. Little did [...]

Things Are Never as Bad as They Seem

By |October 29th, 2015|Categories: Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

By Kelli Best Once when one of our daughters was facing an unfamiliar experience, I gave her a nugget of my vast wisdom.  As the tears flowed, I looked loving in her eyes and said, “Don’t worry sweetheart, things are always worse than they seem.”  At that moment we both burst out laughing!  You see my error.  We have laughed about that as a family since then and even say it from time to time as it has become one [...]

When I am Weak

By Amanda Rosler Have you ever been virtually paralyzed by fear and insecurity? Have you ever felt as though any one of your weaknesses might bubble up to the surface and stand in the way of all the glorious plans that might be ahead of you? That was me. I had tried everything. Books, conversations, prayer, mentors, friends and even denial. My soul yearned to walk upright and confident in what God had called me to but my insecurities and [...]

Do you wear the shoes of peace or do you wear combat boots – Part 2

By |July 17th, 2013|Categories: Imperfect Wives|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

In last week’s Imperfect Wives radio show, Cherie asked me if I could give a personal illustration of when I had chosen to wear combat boots instead of shoes of peace. I didn’t have to reach too far back in my memory for a story of my husband and I in line at a Seattle Sounders game. The lines were extraordinarily long, being the first day that the stadium had set up new security procedures. Even though we had arrived [...]

Do you wear the shoes of peace or do you wear combat boots?

By |July 9th, 2013|Categories: Imperfect Wives|Tags: , , , , , |1 Comment

Sometimes, I find myself igniting conversation only for the personal sake of proving my point. Righteous or justice driven it doesn’t matter, I want my point to be made and my voice to be heard. I believe my words will be more powerful than my silence. But somehow, that never turns out to be the case. Why isn’t my point heard? That is what I want to know. Scripture illustrates to us that words have power and when we wear [...]
