An Open Letter To My Daughter - The Shades of Mr. Grey

My Precious Daughter, Caitie. You are becoming an amazing young woman right before my eyes. As you work through your second year of college, I see your heart grow for people and God. You’ve had your first boyfriend, discovered living on your own, set your own schedule and have achieved exceptional grades from your Professors. I am proud and humbled. As I watch you mature, I recognize that you are stepping into this crazy world with the hope and anticipation that every college-aged woman holds. I look at you and can see some of myself, some of my past, I catch a glimpse of my young self, now however through the eyes of an aged and maturing woman. And this week, in particular, with the release of the movie, Fifty Shades of Grey, I’m moved with love and hope to write to you from that perspective, a wiser and more... Read more →

Pray With Power, Real Power

I’m writing to you on a Sunday afternoon. The rain has been gentle outside. The birds at my feeder are engaged in boisterous tweets as they tussle for the seeds. My exhausted daughter is having a nap and I can hear the crowd noise coming from the family room where my crazed husband watches and tracks his Fantasy Football score. And my friends, I’m privileged to spend some precious time with you. Walking with the Holy Spirit this past week has been full of firsts and fascination. I’m discovering that you must protect the Holy Spirit. And in the not-far-off future I will be writing to tell you about this and why we must protect the spirit. But today I want to share another experience from the conference at Bethel. As I look back over our conference experiences and process all that happened, I’m especially moved by the other attendees... Read more →

Alcohol, Pornography, Rage

The big three. Alcohol addiction, pornography addiction, and rage. These three are the destructive sins in marriage that I see women deal with the most. I share some experience and some insights. I pray this article will encourage one woman out there who is dealing with one or more of the "Big Three." Lynn Read more →

Television and our Kids

So I’m bugged. And I’m going to have to chat about it. I’m opening up a bucket of worms in controversy. But if we as believers don’t talk about some of this stuff how are we going to help one another? So I’m bugged about television. On several levels. I may not have all of my facts in order but I do have my heart in order on this subject so here we go. Skins. MTV’s new racy show "Skins" is everywhere. Not only did its premiere episode attract more than 3 million viewers, it's been written about in hundreds of newspapers, magazines and blogs. That's because advertisers are dropping like flies; Shick, Wrigley, and today, Subway, all pulled the plug. That makes seven so far. The sexually charged show features high school students who routinely have sex, drink alcohol and do drugs. The show is rated TV-MA and includes... Read more →

What's In Your Camp?

This scripture started it all: Deuteronomy 23:14 For the LORD your God moves about in your camp to protect you and to deliver your enemies to you. Your camp must be holy, so that he will not see among you anything indecent and turn away from you. If you remember I began this journey back in April and we have looked at what is indecent in our camp and can those indecent items –attitudes- be a cause for the Lord to turn away from us. Part I Part II Part III Part IV Idol story – Subtle Stealing Part V (Click to read previous posts) A couple of posts back I told you we would explore something indecent which is prevalent today and has very easy access to our homes; pornography. I have been researching this subject and have asked the psychologist I work with here at Spiritually Unequal Marriage... Read more →
