"Ads must not contain content that exploits crises or controversial political or social issues for commercial purposes." Obviously, if you have read My Heart's Cry blogs, they do not exploit crises at all. My blogs focus... Continue Reading →
Through this crisis my prayers have been motivated by my urgent needs and intense emotions. Today I woke up feeling peaceful! It was such a nice change. When we go through a crisis, our relationship with God changes to what is needed for the moment. But when the crisis is over, the relationship needs to... Continue Reading →
I don't know about you, but I'm so done thinking about this mess. I'm done watching the daily numbers go up. I'm tired of trying to wear something on my face that fogs up my glasses when I go shopping. I'm tired of cooking every meal at home. I'm tired of trying to find a quiet place to write when conference calls for work and school video conferencing are going on at the same time in different rooms. So today I put on Christian worship music, using my earbuds to block out all the other conversations.

I hate not seeing people's faces. Facial expressions are so key to communication. I haven't seen anyone all week except... Continue Reading →

We are living in uncertain times. Who would have thought our cities, nation or most countries of the world would be fighting a health crisis like COVID19? This has changed our plans or at the very least delayed them. How do we live well with this uncertainty? I love to plan and this pandemic was... Continue Reading →
Praying for friends sometimes makes you feel vulnerable. There is a marked difference in asking a friend how they are doing and what they are praying for. The latter is a much deeper thought. In fact, sometimes it's too deep to handle. If your friendship has become more superficial because of time or distance, knowing... Continue Reading →
Praying for friends is an important part of being a Christian woman. I have not always been very good at keeping up with this unless there was a big crisis in their lives. But what about praying for their weekly struggles or the day to day grief?This year I started a special prayer time for... Continue Reading →
As one who suffers from an Autoimmune disease, I have to carefully balance work and rest. Sometimes I get overly ambitious and pile on too many tasks to complete. I don't take time to rest, so I hit a wall. Then I can't do anything productive the rest of the day. I have to "save"... Continue Reading →
