Are You Stuck?


I dreamt of an elephant.  He was held captive by a chain, secured around one leg, and attached to a tent peg. Did that elephant symbolize me? Struggling to walk in the freedom of Christ? Imagine then, when I read the TW Lesson on Forgiveness. The words I’d pondered popped off the page. But first, let […]

Forgiveness–An Act of Obedience

  Almost three years ago, after reading Thin Within, I completed the first Thin Within workbook. This workbook (I have always thought of it as a devotional) changed my spiritual life.

The LORD within her is righteous; he does no wrong. Morning by morning he dispenses his justice, and every new day he does not fail… ~ Zephaniah 3:5 I have shared for years that forgiveness was pivotal for me on my Thin Within journey.

The 40 Years of Wandering…Part 6

The horse dream ended up in a very real way being a nightmare—God continued to shut down everything to which I looked for satisfaction but Him (including my horses!). I stopped riding due to challenges the horses faced (the one in the picture wasn’t even 5 yet and came totally lame…surgery was required…he is only […]

The 40 Years of Wandering…Part 5

In the Fall of 2002, my family and I moved to the country to fulfill a life-long dream I had of owning horses. All the work of preparing the land, fences, including the moving of tons of rock (literally) by hand caused me to work my tail off (literally) outside. When we moved, I weighed […]

The 40 Years of Wandering…Part 2

In the summer of 2001, I began to work through the material in the Thin Again book. (This is NOT the Thin Within book, as the Christian version of that wasn’t published until 2002.) I had read through Thin Again, but hadn’t processed the questions at the end of each chapter. I knew God was […]
