  • Marginal living

    I have a confession to make. I am a suburban, middle-class, middle-aged white woman. I don't have a tattoo or an amazing story to tell. I'm not athletic or heroic or musical or artistic. I've never been a missionary to Africa or even Cincinnati.

    I had begun to think that maybe being who I am was not cool and not OK. But thanks to a woman named Kimberly, I realized that who I am, an average woman who needs Jesus and whose ministry is primarily to other average women, is OK - more than OK.

  • Why not dream big?

    I'm a big planner. I have lists everywhere, at home, at work, in the car, you name it. Most of those lists, though, are for everyday things I don't want to forget.

    But I also have a "Someday" list. Someday ... I want to travel to Europe. Someday ... I'd like to take a cruise. Someday ... I'll clean out the basement.

    Who doesn't have a list like that, even if it's not written down on paper?
