In March 2009, my husband and I had moved to California in obedience to God’s call. We were living with relatives there and waiting for an offer to be approved we’d made on a home. After a month of waiting and not hearing anything, I was crying out to God for understanding. Here is part … Continue reading Love Letters from Elohim – Dancing on the High Place of Trials and Fears
In a time of circumstances pro and con, I said to Abba, "You who promised me are FAITHFUL. I rest in You. I trust You. I wait Lord in Your arms. I wait. Lord, what are You doing? I know You are always at work on our lives." "I am fashioning you for greatness." He … Continue reading Love Letters from Elohim – My ways are found in hiddenness and rest.
We often wonder if we've heard God clearly. Are the things He spoke to us ever going to happen? Almost ten years ago now God spoke this to me and I can tell you, "He is faithful to His word."

My journals are full of jots and tittles but few lengthy conversations. It was as if we were on pause. Still, there was a massive shift in Mike’s life. Mike had always … Continue reading Worth the Wait
At long last, I was in California. Mike arrived a day later. When I woke up that morning, a blanket of fog hung loosely over tree tops, but my heart was full of sunshine. Greg and Karen were gracious enough to give us an upstairs bedroom with a bathroom. This room would be our base … Continue reading Is This the Promised Land?
