Hello to all on Discipleship Network,
I am now to blogging. I love the Lord and am always looking for new ways to help me grow as a Christian. I think this site will do just that.

Our oldest daughter is married to a wonderful man also. He is in the Army and they are stationed at Fort…Continue

One of the spots in Israel that always moves me emotionally is a place on the shore of Galilee called "The Primacy of Peter." It's the spot that is traditionally held to be where Peter encountered the risen Lord and was given the chance to accept His forgiveness.
On my last trip to Israel, back in 2006, one in our group had felt that God could no longer use him in ministry. I don't know what caused him to feel that way. But he stood on the shore in that place, felt God's…Continue

That night GOD appeared to Solomon and said to him, “Tell me what I should give you.” “…give me wisdom and knowledge; so that I will be able to lead this people. For who is equal to judging this great people of yours?” (2 Chron 1:7,10)…Continue

We visited Dan and Caesarea Philippi today, two sites that had seemed unconnected to me until today. But there’s a mighty word from God that can be heard in both sites.
Dan is the site of the Canaanite town with the city gate still standing that Abraham would have walked through. As one person in our group announced, "That is crazy good." Dan is also the site of one of the two temples that Jeroboam built to keep his…Continue

It’s been four years since I’ve been in Israel. I’ve been amazed at the changes . . . the amount of archaeological work that’s been completed at Megiddo and Caesarea Maritime, and the amount of new building in
cities like Nazareth and Tel Aviv. Israel shows signs of activity and growth
However, the Sea of Galilee has been a shock to me. The water level is greatly reduced. There’s extended shore in…Continue

On New Year's Day of 2010, I began a new practice that I'm continuing next year. I had read John Eldridge's New Year's Eve post about his annual practice of asking God for a theme for the coming year. Last year, I heard God say the word more. Since 2009 had been a very difficult year, that word really scared me at first. I did not think I could take more of the same. But then I heard God complete…Continue

We were in Nazareth today. Not really in, but overlooking the city. I did some research before I came about the city that was Jesus' hometown as a boy. Here's what I discovered:
1. There were probably only about 120 or 150 people living there, and probably about 20 homes. Everybody there knew everything about everybody else. It was a small town.
2. The town was located in the base of the basin and was considered one of the most beautiful places in all of…Continue
