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.”…

The Cross, It’s Teaching Me to Live

A week or so ago, I posted the video to the song The Scandal of Grace by Hillsong. (If you’re curious about the song, it can be found here.) And it was just one more confirmation for me that the journey I’ve been on…

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…

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…

Living a Spiritual Life in the Midst of the Daily Hustle

If you’re like me – a result-oriented person and lover of ticking off that task that’s been scheduled in my bullet journal – then you’re likely to understand this tension. It’s the tension of there is lots to do today AND I need to…

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Reflections on Psalm 24

What a glorious long weekend it was here in Saskatoon, SK. I got to be home on my farm, spend time with my hubby and the kids that were around, write my research proposal for my major research project required to successfully complete a…

Into Your Hands Jesus, I Commit My Life

My journal entry from today’s devotions. It was with a fierce determination that you entered this day, the day we call Good Friday, over 2000 years ago. I love you too Jesus. I can’t imagine, not really, what that day must have been like…

God’s in the Waiting

Be still my soul,  God is in the waiting. He’s present, patient, working. Sometimes I see Holy Spirit at work, others times I don’t – but I know God is always at work. From ages past no one has heard, no ear has perceived,…

Your Special Work, Are You Doing It?

There are a lot of things to value about a faith-based graduate study journey, and there is one that I am particularly thankful for this week: time allotted to simply hearing and reflecting on the Word of God. That’s where the inspiration for today’s…

My Moment: A Leadership Transition

“I want my moment,” I said. I meant it. It mattered. And it mattered to me not only for myself but for all those other women looking, following, and watching my journey as a female leader. I’ve been invited to the table of leadership….

She Believed, So She Took A Step of Faith (Announcement)

Over twenty-three years ago was the first time I went to a revival meeting and saw a woman proclaiming the Word of God with passion, boldness, and authority. It.was.awesome. As I sat glued to my seat watching her, a strange thing happened: I envisioned…
