I am a follower of Christ, Wife, Mom, Teacher, Musician and Artist. I am an observer of people and nature and am working on learning how to truly “live love”. I talk to birds and butterflies, have been known to rescue baby snakes, love to get my hands dirty in the flower garden, and can lay on the sidewalk at night and watch the moon and stars for hours. I just love living!

Lessons from the Holy Land – Lesson 16 – Dead Sea Christianity

Why is the Dead Sea dying? How does the Holy Spirit speak such truth in such seemingly ordinary situations?  Of course, getting to float in the Dead Sea is not an ordinary situation for me.  However, this body of water doesn't have Biblical explanations written on...

Standing in Beit She’an was breathtaking. There is 6000 years of history in layer upon layer right here.  Canaanite Temples, Egyptians, Israelites, Philistines have all been here.  The bodies of King Saul and his sons were hung here after they were killed and Israel’s...

Lessons From the Holy Land – Lesson 13 – Who is Jesus to you?

We visited a cave at Caesarea Philippi in the pouring rain.  This cave was used for Pagan worship and for the sacrificing of animals and probably humans to many gods.  But also in this area, possibly this very cave about three hundred years later Jesus asked the...
