Ready for Service: Laying LEAD Women Down (For Now)

In Luke 12:35-38 we’re told to “be dressed and ready for service” and to “keep our lamps burning, like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.”…

Taking Up the Mantle of Reverend & Stewarding the Call: Here We Go!

This is one of those types of posts where I’m sharing my heart. In part, likely because I know I’m already setting myself up for criticism, and if I could avoid it, I’d high tail it in the other direction. But I’m a pioneer…

Peace & Retreat in Admist the Public Life

It’s going to sound ridiculous, I know. How could I possibly have the word Peace as my 2019 Word? And how on earth could I feel a sense of being invited to retreat in my soul while also saying “Yes!” to open doors and…

Gift Yourself with Some Reflection & Planning Time: Questions to Help You Process

I know, it’s about to be 2019 and there are so many that will run out this month to buy gym memberships or to join a weight loss group, and most will not stick to this 2019 resolution. Why? Because it lacks the appropriate…

What’s Next? Strategize to Win!

I have read at least 40 books this last year, and there are a few books that will remain with me, but none have affected me more than Carla Harris’ book Strategize to Win: The New Way to Start Out, Step Up, or Start Over…

The Sky is the Limit. Or is it?

The ’sky is the limit’ is a phrase we hear often. But what if the sky isn’t the limit? What if there’s more that God wants to do with our lives? Just mere hours ago I was sitting in the Calgary, AB airport when…

Seriously, Can We Aim Our Slings in the Right Direction, Please?

As Christians, we know that we’re in a battle. We know that we’re genuinely interested in advancing God’s Kingdom and God’s love, grace, and truth here on earth. And we ought to know that how we do that matters. Thus, we out to know…

Thanks, But I’m Not Passing My Baton, I’ll Carry It

For years now I have struggled with hearing statements like, “The older generation should pass the baton to the younger generation” or “I see a generation rising to take their place.”  Now some might argue that there is nothing wrong with these statements, but…

‘You’re Destined for Great Things’, What It’s Not

Perhaps like me you’ve been told “You’re Destined for Great Things” and you’ve struggled to know what that means. Today’s blog is a short reflection on what that phrase doesn’t mean. And I’m sharing it with you today because I felt God’s Spirit this…

The Undistracted Martha

An important story with important truths is found in Luke 10: 38-42. I’ll include it below so you also can read and glean from it. Luke 10:38–42 (NLT): Jesus Visits Martha and Mary 38 As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to…

Like Lambs Among Wolves

This morning, the devotional journal I am working my way through led me to Luke 10:1-16. What a powerful passage! I’d encourage you to go an read it, taking time after to prayerfully reflect and journal. I wrote these words in my digital bullet…

Don’t Be Shady: You Were Meant to Shine

I preached today here in Saskatoon at my home church, Westside Pentecostal. (The sermon can be found online here in the coming week.) And it was a timely word, a word worth turning into a blog post. And here’s why I think it’s worth…
