I read something recently that challenged me to consider how I see my position in life. God tells us Jesus died to make us victorious, healed and free. So let’s flip our way of seeing how we approach life! You are not a sick person fighting to be well; you are a well … More Flip It
The lab results came back positive. I did more research and found that the mold in my system is the same type used to kill people in biological warfare. So scientists know enough about mold to use it for destruction of lives in war, but most doctors don’t take it seriously enough to be informed … More Mold Sickness continued…
A month ago, my husband and I decided it was time to move. We’ve lived in a beautiful area where the forest meets the ocean, but it seems that along with redwoods, dolphins and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, mold also abounds. Looking back over the thirteen years I resided in that spectacular area, I … More The World of Chronic Illness
It depends on where your focus is. Every year, right after school lets out for the summer, our church hosts a week long day camp called VBS. Or as we affectionately call it “vibs.” In most parts, Vacation Bible School is a well known event among church goers.

But what happens when healing doesn’t come? Or at least, not healing as we’d like it. It’s been … More HEALING: To Be or Not to Be?

When you’re up against a big decision or even feeling a bit lost in life, wouldn’t it be great to have the creator of the universe, the one … More Can You Hear Me Now?
I began getting sick more easily last November. And it seemed to take longer than usual to shake it off. By January, I had been sick two more times and still felt under the weather. An unexplained rash began taking over my body with painful itching. At first, I didn’t make any connections. Stress governed … More What I’m Learning From My Illness
