If you’re asking questions of God because you’ve lost a loved one, a relationship, a job, or something dear to you, you need to go through a grieving process.
There IS a valley of the shadow of death or loss, as Psalm 23 says.
When you’ve lost something substantial, it takes some time to adjust. It's as simple as that. You have to say good-bye to the way things were, but this transition doesn’t happen overnight.
Too often people try to push down the feelings and emotions that come during the grieving process...
MARCH 2015 - This month we celebrated our one-year anniversary! It's hard to believe a year has gone by already - wow, that was fast. To celebrate, we re-visited our honeymoon spot in California for a little anniversary vacation. The weather was perfect (again!) and we had a wonderful, romantic, and restful time. Then we stopped here at Stinson Beach on our back to the airport -- it was beautiful!
FEBRUARY 2015 - February was another busy month of PR for my book, "How to Make the Right Decision Every Time," plus some ministry meetings, but we managed to squeeze in some fun when I was home. Here Bob and I are at the hilarious play "Triple Espresso" in downtown Minneapolis with our dear friends from Living Word Christian Church, Tim & Renee Burt. If you get a chance to see this one, do it -- you'll laugh till you cry!
JANUARY 2015 - Ok, so January was the release of my second book, "How to Make the Right Decision Every Time" which means it was a crazy month of traveling and media. For the first time since we got married, we took no pictures of ourselves together! Bob graciously kept the home fires burning while I hit the road. This picture is from the "Real Life" TV show on Cornerstone network in Pittsburgh. To see the full interview, click here.
DECEMBER 2014 - After a quiet Christmas at home in Minneapolis, we went to Oregon to celebrate the New Year with my family. I preached at a church in Hillsboro and one in Seaside, and we spent New Year's Day on the beautiful Oregon Coast, where it was unseasonably sunny and warm!
We just finished your DVD series "Parenting with Purpose" and it has changed our lives! My husband and I are implementing and learning new things every day! I’m truly enjoying my children for the first time in a really long time -- a lot of the pressure about being a "perfect parent" has been lifted because no such thing exists. I find comfort in knowing that all the answers I need to help me be a better parent are in God’s word! Thank you for sharing this knowledge with us!
