Hello, my friend. How are you today? How has your week been so far? How’s your family and how is work? I’ve been thinking and praying for you.


I wanted to write and catch you up with everything going on in my life… Which is LOTS. There’s a lot going on here—or lots going on here—depending on how you want to phrase it.

1st, news about life in general. You’ll notice that I haven’t mentioned my husband’s name in my blog or what he does for a living. There is a reason for that. I want to respect his privacy. He doesn’t have much of a choice about his wife being a writer, but I can offer him his privacy. Now, having said that… I will be a little more specific about what he does for a living, but still vague. Let’s just say that he’s a ‘ministry leader’. That’s precisely what he does, but it’s more specific than that.

Now, having said all of that, I need to tell you more specifically what’s going on in my life so you understand what’s new in my world.

2nd, since my husband and I got back to Omaha and his ministry here, we’ve both been asked to take on a much more public role which requires a great deal of our time and resources as we spread the gospel and support present Christians who are part of the ministry.

Well, that isn’t entirely true. He was asked. God told me to become just as active. My main roles are: listening, prayer, supporting my husband, and Bible study—plus my writing.

Needless to say, time has become very limited in my life. Very limited. Let me stress that component.

3rd, every day requires 3-4 hours in Bible study, prayer, and reflection in order to make sure I’m straight with God and am doing what I need to be doing and am focused on what I’m supposed to focus on—God and His Word. If I’m right where I need to be spiritually, I have more to offer my husband, his ministry, and our ministry.

4th, because my time is not my own, you’ll see a little less of me in some ways. I’m having to make some difficult choices and need to focus on what really matters—what God wants from me and my life. See the section below of: “I’m Not Sure…”

Consequently, you’ll see fewer blogs and fewer journal entries at the following: and at:

My new full-time and most updated blog is at:


Ministry, and working for the Lord, always requires sacrifice. This is no different.


I have no idea whatsoever as to what’s going on with my writing. I just know that I will write devotionals and thoughts at my main blog of: frequently and at from time to time.

My ColMystery series has been put on hold. Figures. So, don’t look for that any time soon.

But, I’ll keep you updated on this blog of: http://www/ regarding my writing. So, stay tuned periodically.


Luke 9:23-24 (NLT) states:

23 Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. 24 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.

This is what I’m holding onto… Luke 9:23-24 (NLT).

See you there.
