Heresy or Heritage?

Heresy or Heritage?

Because I grew up in a household where we were taught to appreciate our country and the freedom that we have as Americans, I always have a sense of excitement as I watch the fireworks on the Fourth of July. This year as I watched the rocket’s red glare, I was again reminded of all the people who sacrificed their lives and put themselves in harm’s way to allow me to write my book and blog without caution to voice my passions and convictions. On the other hand, when I look at the current heresy, morality and choices that are being made in this...

Battle Expectation

She couldn’t stop the emotion this time. Her face flushed, her eyes filled, and she was afraid to go on. But she did go on, even as her voice broke, as tears ran down her cheeks, as her body began to quake. “Jesus…I want you to come into my heart. I want you to forgive me. Please forgive me.” All around her, like spokes of a wondrous wheel, like beams of light emanating from a sun, angelic blades lay flat upon the ground, their tips turned toward her, their handles extending outward, held in the strong fist of hundreds of noble warriors who...

Armor, Not Complacency

Armor, Not Complacency

“The Lord is the ultimate fashion designer! His armor is untouchable. It never comes off, never goes out of style. Anyone or anything that tries to come up against it will lose. God dressed me in this armor and it has saved me!” – From my book My Climb We live in a fallen world. It has been that way since the beginning of mankind (Genesis 3). Humans are destined to sin, but we have hope! The Lord has given us armor to do battle through spiritual warfare. We have seen and heard numerous stories of Christians who have fought in the name of God....

Anytime Prayers

As little Deborah sat down to eat dinner with her parents, she instinctively reached for her fork. “Please hold on,” her father replied. “We haven’t said grace yet.” Deborah was exasperated. She was tired and hungry. “Daddy,” she said with a sigh, “why can’t we just pray once a week? Why do we have to ask for our daily bread every day?” Her older brother, eager to set her straight, weighed in before the dad could answer. “You don’t think we want stale bread, do you?” This story, shared by Jim Daly in his blog for Focus on the Family, reminds...

Unleash Your Superpower!

Unleash Your Superpower!

I’ve always been fascinated by the superpowers of Spider-Man. It’s thrilling to watch him move from building to building using his acrobatic leaps and web-slinging abilities. At times, it appeared defeat was certain and that our hero may have spun his last web, but in the end the villain is defeated and our superhero is the victor. As Christians, we don’t have to fantasize about superpowers. We have access to all the power we need through prayer – and the month of May is the perfect time to focus on this wonderful communication tool that God...

A Life Blessing

“As we walked inside, I could hear my great grandma from the kitchen. ‘Hi, Wendy! Welcome!’ I scurried in to see her. She stood there with her beautiful silver hair and silky skin, her hands worn but still strong after years of hard labor on the farm and a thirty-year career with the Singer Sewing Machine Company.’” That’s just a brief description from my book My Climb of a woman (pictured here) who touched my life in many ways. My great grandma, Adeline Mielke Davis, lived to be 101. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. She was a lady...

Love Life!

Love Life!

Last month we celebrated Easter, the “rebirth” of a man who died so that we may have life – eternal life. Until we get to Heaven, our earthly life is a God-given gift and one that we should appreciate every day. The annual Sanctity of Human Life Day took place in January as a time to celebrate new life and “new birth” both spiritual and physical. I want to continue that celebration with you to start the month of April. Did you know that according to the Baby Center, four million babies are born in the United States every year? That’s four...

Rise To The Occasion

Have you ever had someone rise to the occasion for you? I was fortunate to have someone do just that for me at a very critical point of my life when I was fighting cancer. My father spoke this excerpt from my book My Climb. He shared this with a group Christian businessman the very same day I had my bone marrow transplant. I was a young girl whose brother, Scott, was the one who rose to the occasion for me as a marrow donor—and as a metaphor for Someone else who rose to the occasion for you. Scott was Jesus in this metaphor, and Wendy, well,...

The Heart of the Matter

When I think of February, I can’t help but picture a big, beautiful, heart-shaped box of chocolates. But as wonderful as that may be, there are two other hearts that are even more incredible! The first is the physical heart. Even today, this muscle still has doctors mind-boggled as to what keeps it ticking! But did you know these fast facts about this creation of our amazing Lord? • The heart is about the size of your two hands clasped together • It beats 100,000 times a day • Each minute, the heart pumps 1.5 gallons of blood • A woman’s...

The Best Is Yet To Come

There was once a young woman diagnosed with a terminal illness and given three months to live. As she was getting her things in order, she contacted her pastor and asked him to come to her house to discuss her final wishes. She told him which songs she wanted sung at the service, what scriptures she would like read, and what outfit she wanted to be buried in. The pastor was pre-paring to leave when the young woman suddenly remembered, “There’s one more thing.” “What’s that?” the pastor asked. “This is very important.” She continued. “I want...
