Dream: The Glory of God

I was somewhere walking outside when a man came up to me very excited and told me that if I wanted to see and experience the glory of God, I needed to hurry and go to a certain place. He was telling everyone he could get to listen to him the very same thing. The

Sword Bearing Hummies!

During the time I spent as a photographer, I have learned a lot about hummingbirds from simply photographing them.  Some of it I did not want to know. There is no easy way to say this.  Hummingbirds are mean.  Mean, vicious, selfish little critters.   When I set out to photograph them a few years ago,

What is Restore Wonder?

This is a cool commercial spot that was produced by Brian Cooney for our company, Restore Wonder, a few years ago.  He asked me to submit some of my images to him along with some copy on how I would describe Restore Wonder.  He took it from there.  To say we are thrilled with this

With Everything I Am

Every morning I want to repeat the same prayer.  ‘Lord, I want to love You with all of my heart.’  The first commandment is to love God.  If I get that one right, everything else will carefully move into place.  It is not just a conviction I have, but a deep desire that comes from

Dream: Doing What I Can’t Do

I have this reoccurring dream.  The setting is always the same.  Sometimes there are parts of the event in the dream that change, but the opening scene is always the same. I am standing behind a curtain in the wings looking at a grand stage.  There is nothing on the stage except a very large

Bubbleology 101

Today, dear class, we will contemplate the intricate study of bubbles. Although not rocket science, bubbles can be relatively complex in their utter simplicity. They float. They free fall.  They can rest on the ground (even the grass) before exploding.  Or, they can drift upward toward heaven until you lose sight of them. They come

The Heart of Nashville

I love this city. I was born near the heart of the city and it has always had a huge place in my heart. I cannot, even if I tried, estimate the enormous number of images I have taken of this city. I boggles my mind, and continually challenges my husband’s ability to supply enough

The Power of Words

Have you ever noticed that when someone shares about something that the Lord has done in their lives, that others that hear those words experience the same breakthrough? What is shared may be the details of how a person was healed.  Somehow those words seem to open a door for others to experience healing themselves.  Apparently,

Writing the Book

This has been a very interesting process!  I never intended to write a book.  I was only interested in finding the documentation on any camp meeting that was held in the late 1790s or early 1800s in Goodlettsville, the city where I live. After some investigation, I discovered that the Second Great Awakening began in southern Kentucky

Catalysts Arise!

I heard something when I was praying, but it is so far beyond my understanding. I mean I don’t comprehend exactly what I heard, so if I say the wrong thing, it is because I have no idea what I am talking about.  Earlier today, or yesterday I heard the word ‘catalyst’.  And, I heard
