Does Speaking the Truth in Love Have to Sound Mousy?

Posted by in But-Kickers Blog | 0 comments

Somewhere in the great scheme of God’s providence I ended up in a home with two people who are harder to annoy than Stevie Wonder at a strobe light festival. And it just about drives me crazy. God’s Providence Both my husband and my daughter are the epitome of laid-back, turn-the-other-cheekish, and slow to anger. You can literally walk on their faces, and unless you leave cleat marks, they are willing to accept an “Ooops!” as due recompense and move on. I, on the other...

How to Get Over That One Big Thing

Ten years ago this month I stood on the kitchen chairs, sang, and did “The Chicken Dance” after seeing double lines darken on my Dollar Tree-brand pregnancy test. Two years earlier I had experienced the same heart-stopping glee when I found I was expecting Kaki, then sixteen months old. She joined the celebration as my husband and I talked to a nurse on call about setting up an OB-GYN appointment. I squealed that kind of squeal that makes you rub your hands together and stamp your...

Why You Should Wear a Sword With Your Stilettos

Sometimes the most godly thing a woman can do involves a pink high heel and a sword. Why? Because God often takes the very things associated with femininity and redefines them as weapons of war. So in the hands of our almighty Lord, the same compassionate woman whose gentle spirit and sensitive heart are used to nurture, to teach, and to help, may, in an instant, be called upon to trap, to seize, and to slay a beast.  And the whole world stills to marvel at it all. Join us for more at...

Why You MUST Tell Your Story

“What are you afraid of?” our small group leader asked one night. “That once it’s all said and done,” I whispered, “no one will have heard my voice.”   The Dream Then, in that same faint murmur, I went on to describe a dream I had all through my twenties:   Soaking wet with temple veins bulging and jawbone locked, I would refuse to exhale until I raced through each of ten rounds of foot-pounds on the rough, unforgiving pavement—and even then, my breath would be...

When a Wilde Man Weeps

Just visualize this true story as you read it aloud:     A famous man lives a double life. While married with two children, he falls in love with a younger man and enters into a sexual relationship with him.     The famous man lavishes the younger man with every whim of the young man’s heart, and the famous man later describes their intense union as the fruit of that love “which cannot speak its name.”   Irate and unmanageable, the young man’s...
