In being exact, Jesus knows exactly the conversation that will engage us as He reveals Himself to us. His exchange with the Samaritan woman at the well continues as her question back to His request for a drink betrays her feelings about His unconventional ways.

Jesus will do the same thing for us!Read More
Do you, like me, find yourself at least sometimes seeking temporary happiness from things that bring no lasting satisfaction? Jesus is the only one who can satisfy our soul needs for salvation, assurance, peace, security, significance, purpose, perfect love, perfect acceptance, perfect dependability, perfect trustworthiness, eternal presence, deep, abiding joy, unshakable hope, steady mercy, steady grace, knowledge, wisdom, understanding, discernment and so on.

Come with me as we visit Jacob’s well with Jesus and the Samaritan woman and discover that Jesus will meet us at our exact place of need to reveal Himself as exactly what we need.Read More
Sharing a bit of my story on the Steadfast podcast with Casey Tate today! The stronghold of bulimia and a desire to cover self-disgust with a perfect image left me a broken, hurting mess, but God by His grace and faithfulness rescued me. Maybe that’s not your story or struggle, but something else is weighing you down. Or maybe you just love to hear the many ways the Lord moves in personal and profound ways to show Himself mighty to and in us. I’d love to share this story with you, as He has and He continues to teach me each day how to live free of the sin that once entangled me. It’s a story of the hope and redemption! If it touches or blesses you, please feel free to share it!Read More
