Mission: Hospitality

Last year, I experienced one of life’s major moments: I bought a home. As a single-again woman, I beamed with pride on closing day. For most of the five years after my divorce, I lived in a decent-sized apartment. But I didn’t let that stop me from having people over. Now, with my very own home, I had a unique opportunity–welcoming even more people into my mission field. I didn’t know that God already had a plan in mind. Several {Read More}

When Guests Drop In

It’s been a long day, the sun has just set, and dinner is over.  You’ve managed to clear the table and get the dishes to the sink–even to give the little ones a bath.  Whew!  Finally, the time you have been waiting for all day has arrived.  You settle down on the couch to cuddle with the little ones and your husband.  He turns to one of your favorite psalms and begins to read. You needed this–it soothes your soul.  You {Read More}

Gourmet Meals or Ready Hearts?

  It seems to my husband Jeff and I that many people live insular lives in today’s world. Family is a little island where accessibility is limited and if someone were to drop by their home out of the blue, it would be considered shockingly rude. Early on in our marriage, we desired something different for our home. We always wanted our friends to feel they could come by any time. Never has this been more true for us than {Read More}

Walking the Romans Road

When it comes to sharing the how and why of salvation in Jesus Christ believers can sometimes become tongue-tied, shy, and self-conscious. What if I say something wrong? I may say the Scripture wrong? What if I botch it all? My pastor recently spent a Sunday evening service walking our congregation through a well-known method called the Romans Road. It allows believers to share the gospel confidently without worrying “Where was that scripture?” All you need is your Bible and {Read More}

Spilling Over

Evangelism, just the word can make some go into cold chills thinking that they will have to go out and beat people over the head with the gospel message.  Growing up in a traditional church, we had a program where people would go out one night of the week and “share the gospel.”  I grew up thinking that was evangelism.  It wasn’t until I was a student at New Orleans Seminary that I realized that evangelism was really just loving {Read More}

Short and Sweet

Going down, I smiled at the only other person in the elevator.  She was tiny; only about 5’ tall.  Her uniform and cart of supplies told me that she cleaned for the hotel.  She had thick, curly, dark brown hair.  The colorful scarf that tied it back revealed her God-given streaks of gray, with a concentration at the front.  She smiled back. As we approached my floor I said, “Have a good day!”  With just 10 seconds to respond, her {Read More}
