  • The other day I started cleaning out my jewelry box, a much dreaded job I must confess. I’ve mentioned to many of my friends that it is something I really must do, so I finally started into it. “Started” is the operative word because I didn’t finish it, although it does look much better. It is not quite the tangled mess it once was, thank heavens.

  • On National Wear Red Day®, Friday, Feb. 4, 2011, millions of Americans will join in the fight against heart disease in women by wearing red to stop heart disease in our lifetime.

    Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of one in three women each year. This means women just like you – mothers, sisters and friends – are dying at the rate of one per minute because they don’t know what you know: that heart disease kills.

  • One of my “heroes of the faith” is Dutch Holocaust survivor, Corrie ten Boom. She wrote about her experiences with the Nazis during World War II in her autobiography, “The Hiding Place.” This book literally changed my life. Though it is not very “manly” to admit, I wept as I read page after page of not only God miraculously intervening to preserve the lives of Corrie and her sister Betsie but also of love overcoming evil. If you need an example of the Christian faith applied to real life, look no further than Corrie ten Boom.
