His Last Words By Kim Erickson

Every once in awhile someone will ask you to do something and you hesitate for just a moment, maybe two, before saying yes.  For me, there was no hesitation when I volunteered to do a review of this amazing Bible Study.  John is my favorite book of the Bible.  Growing up, it is the book…Continue Reading…

Choices

There are some things that beg to stay in the darkness.  But because of Christ, we are the light and the light exposes the darkness for what it is.  I have spent some time, a lot of time, in the darkness.  Ecclesiastes 3:7 says “A time to tear and a time to mend.  A time…Continue Reading…

Rebuilding A Marriage…

2014 was a year of discovery and pain for me.  If you follow my blog, you know that is the year I learned about my husband’s infidelity.  It was the last thing I ever thought I would need to deal with.  But there it was, in black and white, in the form of a letter…Continue Reading…

And The Winner Is…

Tomorrow night is Oscar night.  All eyes will turn to Hollywood and the stars that make up its citizenry.  I say all eyes, but in truth, it won’t be all of us.  There will be some, much as myself, who shy away from the glitz and glamour that is represented there.  This year was a…Continue Reading…

It’s All About The Faith…

I wish folks could have known me when I walked by such strong faith that nothing phased me.  But then I look at my writing over the years and I realize that while I have spent a lot of time out of the boat walking on water, I have spent much more of that time…Continue Reading…

When You Want To Run Screaming…

Today is one of those days…you know the ones, where you can’t get comfortable in your own skin and you feel as if you are standing on the road a long way from where you need to be without the desire to take even one more step.  Second Corinthians 4 talks about this kind of…Continue Reading…

The Heart of a Burden Bearer

In the movie series, Lord of the Rings, Frodo is the Ring Bearer and he is told by Galadriel, that to be a Ring Bearer is to be alone.  When I think of Paul in the Bible, I consider him to be somewhat of a Burden Bearer.  Yes, he was a rebel and he had…Continue Reading…

A Line In The Sand Must Be Drawn

This is not going to be a popular post…or maybe it will be.  Not sure what side the multitude that reads my blog are going to come down on.  I am on the book team for Pulling Back The Shades by Juli Slattery and Dannah Gresh.  It is a book written from the hearts of women…Continue Reading…
