Article tasting

January 30, 2006

On Sunday afternoons, you can sample enough at my neighborhood Super Target to honestly report you’ve had lunch. Small bites. Tiny cups.

On the right you’ll see a new section offering a taste of some of the articles I’ve written this past year. May you taste and see that God is good and at work around the world.


Yay–the links are working again!

I’ve decided that when I feel prideful and that all life hinges on me, I need to have something technology-related fail. That pretty much puts me in my place.

About God

January 29, 2006

God loves you. Let that sink in for a minute. The God who created the Universe and everything in it…loves you.

Maybe that surprises you.

Maybe you’ve heard that before but never really believed it. But He does. And He’s extended an invitation for you to know Him personally.

Maybe you think, Jesus is good for you, but not for me. Or you think, “How can you be sure of anything in our unstable world?

Or maybe you think, I do believe in Jesus, but I still feel stuck. I still have problems. I don’t see the life change I thought I would–I feel powerless to change.

Whereever you are, be honest with God. He can handle it.

A few great books I’d recommend for your journey:

Not Found

January 29, 2006

How ironic that I chose to check the site right after I told you all about it? Even more ironic, I checked the “About God” tab and it said:

Not found. Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.

Thankfully, God is still alive and well. My new, high tech Blog (and helpless woman at the wheel) need to figure out how to fix whatever is up. Enjoy the front page, though!

Give me a day or two and hopefully ALL will be found. 🙂 Thanks for your patience!

In my CD player

January 27, 2006

The Caedmon’s Call 2001 album, “In the Company of Angels,” has made its way back into my CD player. “Thy Mercy” is my well-worn favorite.
My favorite stanza:

Thy mercy is more than a match for my heart,
Which wonders to feel its own hardness depart.
Dissolved by Thy goodness, I fall to the ground
And weep for the praise of the mercy I’ve found.

Jazzercise dance squad

Every four months, Florida Jazzercise instructors meet up. For our last one, a handful of Orlando instructors, including me, practiced like a high school dance squad for the big day’s performance. Like our camo look?

About Ministry

January 12, 2006

From early on, my dream had always been to work in a big-city ad agency. However, God had done so much in my life through my college involvement with Campus Crusade for Christ that I was considering joining its staff.

My wise mom said, “Who better to advertise for than God?”

I was sold.

Since joining Campus Crusade in 1998, I have enjoyed serving in various parts of the ministry: writing for Campus Crusade’s magazine, Worldwide Challenge; traveling the world with Judy Douglass (the wife of our president, Steve); Guest Relations at our world headquarters and campus ministry at the University of Colorado-Boulder.

My Current Role

Managing Editor for our Campus Crusade for Christ Staff Web site. I handle day-to-day operations, as well as help plan content and determine future direction.

Why I Do It

I love helping make missionary life easier. For instance, helping connect our staff members to necessary people or resources: reports, evangelism ideas, contact numbers, communication from our leaders, stories from around the globe, reminders of upcoming events and all the while exposing them to things they didn’t even know existed!

I enjoy utilizing communication to help staff members be more connected, informed and effective in accomplishing the mission God has given them. Thus, making the good news of Christ be inescapable for people who haven’t met Him yet.
