Those who know me, know I love to learn–and to share. What God shows me as I study becomes the material I share online. Each week I write for TBL Faith News and Lambs of the Lord (a children’s site). Those pieces are as much my heart for followers of Christ as the material I place on here, and I want to make it readily available. So here are some additional pieces that may speak to your heart.

A “Walk of faith” is a powerful metaphor to consider. A walk implies progress, movement and purpose. In the natural world, a walk offers multi-faceted blessings: the beauty of nature, the health of physical activity, the quieting of the typical frantic pace. Though I know those things are truth, the primary reason I walk is our 70-pound Boxer. One of his favorite things in the world is walking. Well, what he considers walking anyway. A walk for him is a joyous exploration of sights, sounds and possibilities. “What’s that smell? Who has been here? What’s that over there? Oh, look, people who want to pet me!”

She gives an order, and I obey—too soon and end up on a wrong road. Or the street she insists on doesn’t fit my recall, so I ignore her—and end up on a wrong road. She patiently and persistently redirects me. Best of all: my struggles with the GPS help me see my problems with a bigger and better guide: God Himself.

Helping children learn to walk out their faith is the highest privilege and priority parents have. It is my joy to offer some devotions geared to that.
