In the fall of 1985 (32 years ago) Jim and I answered God’s call to come as a team to FBCScottsdale. God called us away 21+ years ago and since then: we moved to Illinois where Jim taught at Trinity and I did Junior High Ministry at Christ Church Lake Forest. We raised our kids […]

Via Dolorosa

The Stations of the Cross – The Passion Week took on a whole new meaning since going to Israel!  I walked the streets where Jesus carried my sin to Golgotha.  We started at the top of the Mt. of Olives near Bethany.  We walked to the Garden of Gethsemane and then up the Ascent to […]

Today as I write this I am in the middle of a move, which I feel like I have been in the middle of for 3 or more months. Every 10 years or so in our married life we have moved. This is 10.5 but it still fits in the rhythm. For me, I think […]
