Want to be Brave? Get Ready for Joy Beyond What You Can Reach.

The idea of designing The Martyrs’Cross had been in my husband’s heart for some time before we got married. However, it was just a couple months before we wed that it fully ripened and became a reality. It was a symbol to us of our purpose in coming together. We met at a Voice of the Martyrs’ conference both sure we would never marry and definitely not have any children. Well, almost.. Read More

Wake Up!’ “ That.. Read More

One of the main ones being, “How could I have been a Christian for so long and never heard anything about this?!” Wow, that’s a post all in itself. Here’s where it comes from in the Bible, Leviticus 23. It’s this chapter in the Bible that most of us Christians have never learned.. Read More

Momma is a Martyr, here in America

Lately, I am doing a lot of singing a long with Rich Mullins… Whose song, Here in America, repeats the line, “And the holy king of Israel loves me here in America”. Jesus loves his disciples here in America. Mommas are on my heart lately. Mommas are martyrs, because martyr means witness. They die to self everyday and share in the hardships of Christ in order to witness the life.. Read More
