Hoping 2018 offers some days of spiritual refocus?


Maybe one of the following “Hungry For More” events would be just right for you.


In just a few weeks on January 26-27, I’ll be speaking at a local women’s retreat on the topic “Enough!” We’ll be exploring topics like “I’ve Had Enough!”, “Am I Enough?” and “God is Enough.” Come join us at Plains Baptist Assembly in Floydada, Texas for the overnight entire event or opt for a Saturday only ‘day-stay’. Register online.


If you are in Asia, come join me and my daughter Hilary at the TMF Ladies Retreat at beautiful Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan. On March 5-7, English-speaking ladies from Taiwan and beyond will be gathering to renew their hunger for our Living Bread. Register online.


Can’t get away? Join an 11-week online Hungry For More study, sponsored by Women’s Development Track. Beginning on March 19th, we’ll be meeting online for an hour and a half every Monday night (7:00 p.m – 8:30 p.m. Central) to increase our hunger for His Word and build community with women across the globe. Register online.


Need an intensive time away? Join me and a small group of other “hungry” women in a mountain home in Silverthorne, Colorado, May 23-29. This one-week in-depth study will be interactive and relational, both with one another and with God. Registration limited to 8 and also sponsored by Women’s Development Track. Register online. 


Even if you can’t attend, please pray for us. Ask the Father to make us willing to be willing…and for Him to be our main focus.

“I, Richard, take you Jane, to be my wife. I commit my devotion to you….I commit to love you…”


What an amazing weekend we experienced. This past Saturday, our family came together in celebration of yet another of the Father’s blessings. 


It wasn’t either of our daughters, although both were in attendance. If you have checked out the “about me” page, you know that Hannah has been married almost 9 years and Hilary almost five. In fact, Mark and I thought that our days of planning family weddings were over. 


No, this was Mark’s dad’s wedding.


Now, it was not your usual second marriage scenario. Both Richard and Jane were widowers, with her first marriage lasting 55 years and his lasting sixty. 


Yet, after both had lost their life mates, the Lord gifted them with this new chapter of love in their lives. Isn’t God good?


“I commit to you in health….I commit to you in sickness… I commit to you when we are in sorrow…I commit to you when we are in joy….I commit myself to you as long as we both shall live.”


As the couple made these vows to one another, I realized that I had heard them many times at many weddings before. Yet, this time, I knew that these two individuals fully realized the gravity of those words. They had fulfilled every one of them once before. 


And because they had been faithful, the Lord wasn’t quite finished using their lives to represent Himself and His church. With His strength, they could do it yet once again. Share with us the weekend’s joy.
