On one of my first visits to Denver, my son took me to the 16th Avenue Mall – where every other person was homeless and begging for a handout. I had nothing to give that day, but an idea began germinating in my mind.read more
Rescued to New Life Last year I wrote about the death of my little dog, Dottie Jo, who had lived with our family for over a decade. My husband and I have been hesitant to get another dog for a lot of reasons but last weekend, after visiting shelters for several weeks,...read more
The loss of a pregnancy is truly a death in the family. Mommies, Daddies, and siblings must all grieve together. There is no timeline for any of us when it comes to grief. It may take your children many weeks or months to process the loss, and you may still speak of this child for many years to come.read more
At times, the Hebrews longed to return to Egypt and their old lives there. As difficult as it is for us to understand there were times they longed to return to slavery. It seemed preferable to their journey of freedom! In a similar way, the vices of our pre-Christian life such as lying, stealing, fits of rage, drunkenness, pride, hatred, divisiveness will bring us into sinful bondage again if we do not reject them.read more
Such terrible situations involve deep suffering for all involved. It is in our nature to try to avoid pain and suffering, but in such difficult situations, we will suffer. It is vital that in our suffering we do so with the Lord, knowing and trusting him while he works in our hearts and in the situation.read more
We are all full-time ministers, or we are not ministering at all. You, too, are called to full-time ministry. We all are. One-Another relationships are a ministry, and the lifestyle of a believer. We all are given different gifts useful to specific types of One-Another ministry, but everyone has a ministry of soulcare.read more
Teens today are being bombarded in this hyper-sexualized world with sexual content and images making it difficult for even the most engaged parents to keep up with. It can leave you feeling exhausted and defeated before you even get a chance to really try and engage them.read more
My trial may be different from yours, but it’s not really about the trial. It’s about the One who brings us through it. I can share with you how God has been faithful to me, and you can reciprocate.read more
Ask the Lord to grant you repentance from assuming the role of the Holy Spirit in your husband’s life. Ask him to give you godly motivations and desires as you pray for your husband’s growth and change. Ask the Lord to make His glory the deepest desire of your heart–and not just in this area, but in all of your life.read more
I wish I could say that Sue’s story was unusual. However, emotional adultery happens much more often than we realize. The busy lives that couples lead leaves a little room for them to continue to develop that intimate, connecting relationship that sustains a marriage.read more
Calvary University Student Services department hosted a one-day Ladies Conference for Calvary students, faculty, and staff. Julie Ganschow, director of Reigning Grace Counseling Center, was the speaker for the day.read more
This month, while teaching biblical counseling to some Bible college students, I saw people bearing fruit for the Lord. During the lessons, we watched videos of people who had been transformed by him. These people were a blessing and an inspiration for us.read more
Discouragement does not honor Jesus, because He commands us not to be. Just before His disciples’ most discouraging circumstance – His death – He said “Let not your hearts be troubled” (John 14:1). Rather than being afraid, He wants their hearts to be comforted by His promises rather than by what they were seeing.read more
I have been reading through A.W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God, and the Lord has used that book and our home remodeling project to remind me that I am still under construction. There are still issues of the heart that must be put to death by the Spirit of God in my life. Anger, discontent, impatience, unkindness, just to name a few of the things that have been rattling around my thoughts, beliefs, and desires the past several days. These are all “self-sins” as Tozer puts it; all focused solely on my favorite idol- me.read more
Your daughter is an image bearer of God, created by Him for His glory. His deepest desire for her life is that she would bring glory to His name. So, as you struggle with her behavior, attitudes, and actions, you must remember that you also were created for the glory of God.read more
God will not “lose” my dad in dementia. If it is His will that my dad lives for eternity in heaven, this disease will not prevent it from happening. I trust God and His sovereignty in this situation; I firmly believe that my dad has until his last breath to express his need for Jesus to save him. I pray it is His will.read more
Our words reveal what is in our hearts at the deepest level – in our thoughts, beliefs, and desires. When sin rules in our hearts, it will show outwardly in our behavior and words. Mothering is a rewarding life role, but it can also be exhausting, draining, and difficult at times. In her exhaustion, personal pain, and suffering, a mother might say things to her child that are sinful and damaging.read more
Recently, a counselee said to me, “I just don’t know what to do. I’m completely overwhelmed.” As I tried to help her sort through all of the responsibilities, trials, and problems she was faced with, I began to see a pattern: For every issue of her life, there was at least one corresponding blessing God had granted in relation to it.read more
