Kenyan women: enough, already!

Dear Kenyan ladies, I’ve spent quite a bit of time interacting with many of you, lately, and I must say it’s very interesting how a few short years can change a people’s mindset.  It’s amazing to me that some of the things that, as recently as five years ago, were regarded as atrocities and abominations, […]

The idol of “The Way I Pictured It.”

Hey, lady! I thought of you today and wanted to write something as both an encouragement to you and a reminder to myself. As you might already know, I do not view this blog as me standing on a pedestal speaking down at you; rather, I view it as a platform for the Lord to […]

“Small-small” things

Do you ever wonder what the world would be like if Paul had had all the resources we have at our disposal? He ministered on foot, by horse, by ship, and yet was used of God to cover a vast region and make an unforgettable, reverberating, eternal impact on the church. I often wonder if, […]

Of taking breaks and establishing boundaries

Hey there! I’m taking some time away from many things, hence the silence on this blog. This started as a deliberate ministry break, but because so much happened in the process, I am taking my time.

10 wedding expense lies you may have been told

Amigos y amigas, I’m not sure that title makes grammatical sense, but I’ll forge ahead.

10 ways to deal with friends and family who expect freebies

Hi there, business owners! For some reason, today I slightly miss the regularity of the rat race. Before I go any further, I’d like to apologize for randomly stopping the 40 day devotional series. My publisher saw it, thought it would make a great book, and that was that :). Anyway. As you know, I […]

Pedestrian Packaging

Hello. God answers prayers. And sometimes – many times – He does it in such a way that it takes you a while to recognize your answer at first. You might even spend your years and livelihood on what you have concluded is the answer, saying, like Samuel, “Surely the Lord’s anointed is before Him.” […]

10 things to consider if you’re interested in a single dad

Ladies, I trust that we all know by now that The List is something that is better off trimmed, if not completely discarded. I’m pretty sure that five years ago, you were determined to end up with a tall, dark, rich, handsome, educated, childless, teetotaling, fashion-conscious, sexually skilled virgin who of course was also a […]
