Sounds Like a Plan

Sounds Like a Plan

When I met my husband, many years ago, I picked up on all of his habit-phrases.  You know the ones I mean … when people say the same thing after the same situation occurs. One of Farmer Dean’s familiar sayings comes after my delivering some desires and hope of what we should do over the […]

Developing a Child-Like Faith

Developing a Child-Like Faith

As I carried my granddaughter up the stairs of the old 1910 house, each step creaked loudly, echoing the sounds of yesteryears.  I imagined how many times the stairs were climbed as a little child was carried off for nap time. The day was struggling between releasing its summer warmth to embracing the coolness of […]

The Lake of Life

The Lake of Life

My husband’s family owns a cabin up north.  It’s nothing spectacular or fancy, but just a very simple structure that sits up high on a grassy hill, overlooking a lovely lake. From the wrap-around deck, you can relax and nestle into a comfy chair, sipping your tea, while busy little hummingbirds flit about you, sipping […]

Doubt Vs. Truth

By Kristen Johnson. Harvest is nearing a close here in Minnesota. Some rain has slowed us down a bit, but, hey, that is giving me a chance to write this! I’ll take it! The harvest season is always a rough time for me. It is really a time of year that God uses to work […]

Jesus, Firm Foundation

Shootings in a military town. Friend’s father-in-law dies. Children suffering with cancer. Sister diagnosed with blood clots. STRESS. Life. Chaos. And we find ourselves shaken. If you’ve read my last few posts, you know that I have been dealing with a busy schedule and a busy, messy household. But yesterday in church, my struggles came […]

When Others Say No

When Others Say No~By Kathy Weckwerth Over the years, I have had people say, “no,” to me.  Not about volunteering, or sharing, or giving me their new Lexus, but “no,” when they think I shouldn’t do something, go somewhere, become someone.  They bluntly and boldly say, “No … you can’t do that.”  To which I […]

The Ride of Our Lives

By:  Kathy A. Weckwerth The past few weeks for me have been like a roller coaster ride at Disney World.  Emotions have been at an all-time high, sleep at an all-time low, and patience has been wearing thin. Our end-of-the-year conferences weren’t coming together like they normally do, and Farmer Dean was experiencing chest pains.  […]

Always a Quarter to Nine

By  Kathy A. Weckwerth ~Scripture:  Matthew 14:  22-33  The busyness of Christmas raced by, along with moving two of our children into their new homes, and I found myself exhausted.  I woke up this morning to the winter wind howling outside my window, and the cat meowing for her morning breakfast.  Things settled in around […]

Closed Doors & Date Number 24

This past year, I gave the same plea to our ministry’s conference attendees.  Over and over, I told them that when you find yourself standing in front of a door that God has very evidently closed; don’t try to force it open.  If you’re anything like me, there have been times when you have noticed […]

Does Your Anchor Hold?

Does Your Anchor Hold?

Mark 4:39 (NKJV) “Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.” Have you ever been outside when the winds and the rain begin to instill in you a desperate fear?  Last night, while driving home from a nearby city, […]
