Column: More real than breathing
When I was about 7 years old, I wrote a book. It was called “The Gooble-Gooble Monster.” It was about a scary-looking monster who, though his appearance was quite terrible, was actually very kind. He came across a little girl and she was frightened by his scary face. She began...

Over in the warm climes of the Pacific Northwest, my sisters and parents are currently enjoying the beautiful springtime blooms of daffodils and crocuses in their flower gardens. In Miami, Fla., where I was born, it’s 72 degrees. Down in Oklahoma, a friend of mine just planted...

Column: The definition of love
The telephone rang one Saturday morning several years ago as we were preparing to go to my husband’s great uncle’s funeral. My husband answered. He came downstairs a few minutes later with an interesting look on his face. I glanced up quickly from the sash I was tying on our daughter’s...

Column: Lunchtime lessons
Once upon a time, a girl was asked to deliver meals through her local hospital’s Mobile Meals program. It would be a one-week gig. She said she would do it, but please give her an easy route. One that wouldn’t take her too long. At a quarter to 11 the next morning, the girl showed...

Column: May the Force be with you
Waves of nostalgia rushed over me as I sat gazing at an enormous screen while the iconic yellow words scrolled up and the unforgettable theme music filled my ears. “Star Wars — Episode 7.” “How cool is this?” I thought as I grabbed my husband’s hand. The answer to...

Column: Picture imperfect ... but that's OK
The Christmas music has been playing in my house, but I haven’t baked one single Christmas cookie. The tree is up and decorated, but the train that is supposed to run around it is still in its boxes in the basement. The stamps have been bought but the Christmas cards have yet to...

Column: Giving thanks in the midst of our fears
’Twas the week before Thanksgiving, 2009, when a noise freaked me out that was not very fine. My daughter was napping while I read a story, when down in the living room came a sound quite gory. I sprang to my feet at the terrible clatter, and ran to the stairs to see what was the...

Last week I had the privilege of speaking to a group of roughly 100 ladies at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Fulda. I had a great time that evening and enjoyed meeting many of my readers! As I was preparing for the evening, I was praying. A lot. I didn’t want to waste anyone’s...

Column: Longing for home
My parents have a friend. Dr. Dan. I suppose I should say, “had” because Dr. Dan went to be with Jesus a few months ago. He’d been ill for a long time, and he was old. His wife died a few years ago, and he missed her very much. Dr. Dan had been dying in bits for a long...

Column: The value of vegetables (except for beets)
WORTHINGTON — It’s late summer, and when I was growing up that always meant canning. Mom loved vegetables, and she canned (or froze) them all — tomatoes, beans, corn, peas. Oh, how I remember the sweat-filled hours my mom would spend “putting up” vegetables and fruit every...

Column: A different kind of lullaby
The concentrator machine is breathing for my mother. It separates the oxygen out of the air, removing nitrogen and other trace gasses. She uses it whenever she sleeps or lies down to rest. A lullaby of clean air. In out. In out. In out. I hear it as I lie down to sleep on Mom and...
