I had the privilege of talking to the staff at Loving Choices & New Beginnings this week. I'm amazed at the work that they do in our community helping women who find themselves in a crisis situation.I usually try to avoid statistics, but they shared one with me that is too good to keep to myself. Of the women who come into their centers with a crisis pregnancy around 90% of them are choosing life. These women are making a very brave choice to either parent or adopt.As a mom of 4 I can't imagine the fear of facing an...

Here is the letter from the pastor with cancer that we shared this morning.Hope and despair are not opposites. They are cut from the very same cloth, made from the very same material, shaped from the very same circumstances. Most of all, every life finds itself forced to choose one from the other, one day at a time, one circumstance after another. The only difference between the two is that despair shapes an attitude of mind; hope creates a quality of soul. Despair colors the way we look at things, makes us suspicious of the future, makes us negative about the present.

In my last blog I made the statement that we were created to chase. And I believe it's true. Scripture confirms it. We all run after something.Yesterday I was challenged by a scripture in 2 Sam. 18 "Come what may, I want to run." The person speaking those words had been discouraged from running. But still, he wanted to run. He knew he had to do what was in his heart regardless of whether his running was accepted by others, or if it meant running alone.I too am called to run.
One thing you can't help but notice in Vegas is the pursuit. Pursuit of what? Well, I'm not sure. I don't even think the people pursuing it know what it is that they are chasing. But they chase it none the less.Whether it was alcohol, gambling, sex, or entertainment everyone seemed to be in pursuit. Crowds of people spending thousands of dollars searching for... something. Something to satisfy them. And unable to find it they continued their pursuit... to the next slot machine, the next drink, the next club. And on and on and on.Except for me.
