Having the opportunity to visit with her on Pardon the Mess this week, I agree that she is all of this and so much more! Vivian grew up culturally Buddhist before coming to Christ in high school. She talks candidly about being…

There’s very little we won’t do for our kids. It’s comical to look back on things that seemed perfectly normal at the time but, with a little perspective, you realize you might have jumped on the parenting crazy train a few times over the years.  Let’s play a little game of have-you-ever.  (Don’t panic, people.…

I first heard Christina tell portions of her story on the Today show several months ago. I was initially captivated by her unabashed sharing of the gospel on national television. But, even more than that, her hope in the Lord and her passion for foster care reform were visibly stirring during the interview that day. I knew…

I sat there that day, staring into the eyes of a beautiful seventeen-year-old with tears streaming down her face. “Beth” told me what so many girls in her situation had told me before: “I just can’t be a mother.” Holding her hand, I told Beth to take a deep breath and to take this one…

We’ve had some large storms in Dallas the last few weeks resulting in downed trees and power outages for extended periods of time. You don’t realize how much you “need” your creature comforts until you don’t have them.  That’s especially true for my children who basically thought they were part of the Greatest Generation after…

In my mind, I really do want to be Wonder Woman—the greatest superheroine ever.  As a young girl, I was enamored by Lynda Carter with all her beauty, poise, and strength. No offense to all the Disney Princesses, but Wonder Woman was more my speed. She was so believable as her alter ego Diana Prince,…
