Abandoned Faith: Enlightening & Hopeful!

When you first look, Abandoned Faith is not a book you expect to be brimming with hopeful strategies. Yet that is exactly what this book delivers! It provides lots of facts with correlating interviews and surveys on millennial’s and the many problems they face. I don’t usually enjoy reading a book filled with lots of statistics. Yet as…

Called To This?

I have not been “called” to this. The easy chair. (Or the easy crowd.) Though I confess? (There are days I wish I were.) Simply put God has called me to the Prodigal-Church. Yeah, you know. The ones referred to as: The Messy-misfits. The Raucous-runaways. The Wrecked and Wounded. The ones who have heard it…

Inconvenient Truth

I used to ask God, “Why?” I rarely got any sort of an answer so I stopped asking. (But I confess, I never stopped wondering.) I’ve heard good Christians tell me that “THE Answer” was that I had to learn to live with all my unanswered questions. (That didn’t help much either.) I don’t believe…

The Unblessed Prodigal Heart

Beloved Prodigal… (Part 4 ~ What’s Your Name?)

WHAT’S YOUR NAME? On Pinterest, I call myself “Molly-O.” I chose Molly because I wanted a nickname for Martha. “O” is because I aspire to become an Overcomer each day, whether I feel like it, or not. And… Jesus gets every bit of the credit for any overcoming ’cause I still struggle some days, and yeah,…

Beloved Prodigal… (Part 3 ~ Storms To Come)

Jesus said quite clearly, “Count the cost.” Believe me—those are words I now hold very sacred. When Jesus says to you, “Follow me.” He is not asking you to live in a hothouse full of roses. He is calling you to your own cross. And, your “cross” is not a pretty piece of jewelry around…

Three Doors

There are three doors in this life. Three ultimate choices. (And here’s the deal.) To not choose is to choose the brown door. We’ll call that door: REJECT. You can choose to reject everything the bible teaches. Everything a life given to Jesus Christ is. (Yep, your choice.) God gives this choice to each and every…

Is The Church Really Clueless?

I wonder how many there are? No I really wonder if you counted, “Would the numbers be staggering?” I’m talking about scattered “sheep.” Those who wanted to be a part of a vibrant and thriving Church, but for one sad reason or more took the back door, left the Church. Said a sad and brokenhearted, “Adios.”  I…
