All-In

By Julie Voorhees Whoever joined together the word smooth with the word sailing? My ideal sailing adventure—my smooth sailing—would be on a warm, clear and calm ocean…with land always in sight. Warm water says jump in…all-in. I love to flop around in warm water. As a young girl, I secretly wanted to be one of those underwater mermaids at Florida’s Weeki Wachee tourist... Read More

A Letter of Extended Hands

Dear Friend, There are some things I prefer to keep to myself—like my age—but there is something more significant that I am compelled to share. This letter is like my hands extended, holding my words for you that could be of great benefit…perhaps an intervention into your dailyness and possibly a personal challenge.

Pass on the Passion

by Jennifer Keeton I was driving home this week and discovered that my favorite Christian radio station was involved in a “share-a-thon” fundraising program. They do this a couple times a year to help cover their expenses for the year. I often feel guilty that I don’t call in right away and pledge my support.

Hearing God’s Voice

By Jennifer Keeton Decision making has never been a problem for me. I rather like problem solving so each decision is approached logically much like a puzzle and once the outcome seems clear I move forward. I don’t often find myself in situations that I can’t determine which path to take or what the right decision is. That being the case I am baffled others who take their... Read More
