IRN USA Radio’s program “Chuck Morse Speaks” invited me back on Wednesday morning for a conversation with co-producer of the show Andre Traversa.This time the subject was my book. You can tune in to that one-hour discussion here. (Note: the conversation really doesn’t start until 6 minutes into the recording due to technical difficulties.) Talk…

In the New Year I’ve started a freelance writing gig to support my family. (In previous posts I’ve shared a bit about the various challenges that go along with parenting a child with special needs, one of which is providing for the various early-intervention therapies—hence this new adventure.) Now, if you’d like to hire me…

One thing that keeps me showing up at this intersection between God and life is you and your musings. I hope you’ll keep leaving them here. Here is what some of you have been saying… Saint and sinner Briana from Wheaton, IL had this to say in response to Centuries of Institutional Church Chauvinism…Based on…

Last week I got the news that I had been rejected: I had poured my all into one and only one application to a top-tier doctoral program only to learn that I hadn’t made the cut. Worse yet was the explanation that there was nothing I could have done to make my application any stronger,…

Yesterday Chuck Morse of IRN USA News interviewed me on the radio. (You can listen to that conversation here.) Actually the segment was really more of a conversation with Chuck and his producer-partner Andre Traversa about mega church pastor Rick Warren’s Daniel Plan diet initiative. The Daniel Plan has been going strong: supposedly more than…

It’s been a tough week and I’m processing some raw emotions right now. (More later about this when I’ve had more time to regroup.) These pregnancy shots are helping to lighten the doldrums a bit. Check them out here. If up until this moment you thought were not photogenic, you can think again.  

Today when we remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was both a deeply flawed and greatly inspired public servant and man of God, I am struck by this recollection of King from this morning’s Our Daily Bread devotional: In a sermon in early 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. quoted Jesus’ words from Mark 10…

I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard both men and women in the church say—about women in leadership or women’s ordination issues—something to the effect of,  “It’s just impossible to ignore certain Scripture passages” (the “certain Scripture passages” being taken to mean a blanket rejection of women in leadership by the apostle Paul).…

I’m always interested in learning more about the people I write for….Which is why I was intrigued to read that the January 8 issue of The Christian Century calls a moratorium on woe-to-the-millennials talk. In his opening column, CC editor John Buchanan argues that the young adults he knows—contrary to studies depicting them as selfish,…

Fellow saint and sinner Sally sent this poem by Lisel Mueller along, which seems so fitting for all of us saints and sinners at this intersection between God and life; so I share it with you, too, in hopes that, as you begin another seemingly ordinary week of work, you might also be assured that…
