Grounded in Faith

A wood-carved valentine

I ask the world’s most obvious question: “All right, who did this?” I jab a finger at the letters carved into the back of the wooden kitchen chair: A N N A Anna’s older sister chimes in first, rolling her eyes for dramatic effect. “I recognize those backwards Ns anywhere,” she says. Anna’s fork falls with…

Battling insecurity

Rosie, the matriarch of our little country church, scooted through the crowd and down the center aisle to find me before the postlude even began. “Can you bring a dessert to the church supper Friday night?” she asked, pressing a pen into my hand. She held up a clipboard, and I froze before I looped the first curve on my cursive J.…

What will Heaven be like?

“I wonder what Heaven will be like,” our older daughter says, staring out the window of the car, with her hand propped on her chin. She’s staring at clouds. I turn on my blinker to change lanes and reach the exit ramp toward home. Our younger daughter is buckled in behind me and blurts out the first answer:…

Having the faith to make ‘The Call’

There’s not too many things we can be absolutely certain of in our lives…. Yet here’s one truth we can know for sure – there will come a time when we’ll have to make a decision. We’ll have to say yes or no, to take one path or the other. When we make that call some people may pat us on the back and praise us, but

The clean comedian

Sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? Show me a comedian who makes a living making us laugh while keeping it clean and I’ll show you someone who’s really funny. The fact is, there are hundreds of comedians who build their careers around inappropriate “one liners” because they know that there are…

August 28 1963; MLK Day

It’s August 28, 1963. Hundreds of people are soaking their feet in the Reflecting Pool in an attempt to cool-off.  It’s a normal mid-summer day but the body heat of 250,000+ people is causing an abnormal spike in D.C.  The cool marble of the Lincoln Memorial mocks attendees who have spent months marching to its steps.  It’s…

Life on the road

Are you enjoying Life on the road? I know that many of our listeners are. With Life 101.9 sister stations in Des Moines, Kansas City, Sioux Falls, Fargo, Madison and St. Paul, they find music that’s uplifting in nearly every direction. Recently, I crashed a staff meeting at the Life 107.1 studios in West Des Moines and the team…

Finding hidden treasures in dark places

I’ve never been good with waiting. My husband never understands why I purposefully read the end of a novel just to know what happens and yet still go back and finish reading the rest of the book. When we watch a movie, if he knows how it ends, I want him to tell me, then I can settle in and enjoy the rest. When I was a little girl, I discovered…

When God moves

Recently I read through the book of Acts and noticed something kind of profound, something that’s still happening today. In chapter 14 we read about Paul and Barnabas in Iconium, preaching at the Jewish synagogue. Paul and Barnabas spoke with power and influence and the Lord our God was with them. Clearly, they loved God more…
