"Life is a marathon, not a dash, and the victory goes to the ones who PACE themselves. God wants us to live a life of balance and joy." — Karen Jensen
Is it just me, or does it seem as though peace is getting harder and harder to come by in our fast-paced, terror-ridden, success-driven, disease-threatened, media-saturated, economically- troubled world?
But I believe Christians can have peace -- all the time! After all, Jesus said in John 14:27, Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

MAY 2016 April and early May were full of ministry times, but toward the end of May we were able to spend some time in Tulsa with part of the family! Here we are at the Tulsa Balloon Festival with the world's cutest grandbaby, plus her momma, dada, Unkie, Titi and Grandma Birdie (in town from Florida). The weather was dicey, but we had a great time!
MARCH 2016 This month was our second wedding anniversary! We celebrated multiple times, but one of those times was a wonderful lunch at the beautiful Philbrook mansion in Tulsa, then a stroll through the gardens (seen here). It wasn't quite warm that day, but it was sunny and warmer than Minneapolis, and we had a great time!
FEBRUARY 2016 One of the highlights this month was attending Winter Bible Seminar/Worldwide Homecoming at Rhema in the middle of the month and getting to see so many wonderful friends who came from all over the world! This picture is with Pastor Tracey Turner from Burlington, Vermont, where I was blessed to preach last fall. It was a great week in Tulsa!
Lots of people have asked me how Bob & I met, so here’s the story:
In June 2012 I was writing Why God Why? and I “just happened” to be writing about the grief process – how there are stages to go through if you’ve suffered loss, but how no one else can dictate how fast or slow, easy or hard, you go through each stage....
We just finished your Parenting DVD series in our church. I am so grateful for this teaching! The timing was perfect for my husband and me. At the end of each session I felt more encouraged and equipped in my role as a parent. I can do this! Having the worksheets that went along with the videos will be invaluable reminders of what was taught.
