  • A baby changes everything

    When my daughter Alison was a baby, I bundled her up in her white snowsuit (we lived in Northern Maine), slipped on the icy sidewalk and dropped her. Thankfully, the snowsuit protected her and she survived to spit up all over my husband's suede jacket.

    When she was big enough to do so, she took the knobs off our stereo. We found all but one, which we feared she had swallowed because she kept coughing. Panicked, we took her to the emergency room to be x-rayed - no sign of the stereo knob. We found it days later in the laundry basket.

  • Me and my potty mouth

    Sitting at the table behind my husband and me, a young woman at a local restaurant got my attention by dropping loud F-bombs.

    I know some Christians would have cleared their throats and announced, "Young lady, as a Christian I find your language offensive."

    However, I tend to think that's not helpful and makes Christians look like fragile weenies.

  • Being spiritual - it's not what you think

    When somebody says, "I hope you won't take this the wrong way," it's safe to say that what follows is not something you're eager to hear.

    That's how a woman started a conversation with me during a women's retreat where I was the speaker.

    When she said that, we were in the kitchen at the retreat center, picking at leftover brownies. The brownie bit I had just swallowed sank like an anchor in my stomach and I froze.
