I don't put stock in the old saying, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." The faith I have in a real, powerful and loving God persuades me to believe that He never gives us lemons. Everything that passes from His hands to ours is nothing less than gold. Over twenty years ago, I met and married a beautifully imperfect human being and, through a series of beautifully painful events, we ended up with seven children. Pure gold, all of it.
I write and speak about God's gold, with a curious and grateful heart.
I'd love for you to come dig around with me. Take a look at my new Bible study, A Seat at the Table: Moving from Hierarchy to Harmony, which explores God's true notions about the gold He deposited in and through women in the church.
You'll also find links to my blog, podcast and published articles, all of which dig for the gold that can always be found in both our joys and our sorrows.
My prayer is that you'll find a little something here to remind you of who you are, where you've come from and all the gold that's been deposited in you. No matter how bleak things look, friend, you have, indeed, been given gold. Render, then, gold.
