Carry On, Warrior Princess

People who need help sometimes look a lot like people who don’t need help. –Glennon Doyle Melton, Carry On, Warrior I never thought of myself as a Warrior Princess. Though I grew up in a warrior-household where it was every man for himself. We all had giant holes in our hearts but no one ever…

Abandoning Ship!

“Dad, I’m not at all sure I can follow you any longer in your simple Christian faith’ stated the clergyman’s son when he returned from the university for holidays with a fledgling scholar’s assured arrogance. The father’s black eyes skewered his son, who was ‘lost,’ as C.S. Lewis put it ‘in the invincible ignorance of…

Our Father’s Heart

Since Jesus only did what the Father instructed Him to do, why would our Father’s heart be, to use such lost souls (as the disciples) to start a revolution of love? I’ve asked myself that question more than once, because you see, I have come to realize that Jesus just doesn’t “see” people the way…

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!

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

As a self-confessed Prodigal, I will confess I craved it all of my life. My father’s blessing. I would even go so far as to say it was the deepest craving in my heart. As a child, I longed to make my Father smile. (It was not a simple task.) Dad came from Quaker roots…

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,…
