Like the prophet Elijah, or like other faithful men and women in the Bible, have you been waiting on God? Have you been persisting in prayer, fasting, and petitioning God for what He has promised you? Have you been waiting for a long time while it seems to you that others you know are moving along at a good pace? Are you now in that place where you are getting a bit tired and frustrated with waiting?

Far from being a state of dormancy, the waiting period is actually one of the most active periods of the Christian journey. It is through the experience of waiting patiently on God that we are best positioned to receive the most customized gifts that God eagerly wants to give us.

In this book, Waiting by the Brook, I enter into a conversation with readers about what it means to wait on God. Beginning with the experience of the Prophet Elijah, but also drawing heavily from the accounts of other Bible characters as well as her own experiences, she shows how waiting on God is critical to our deepening relationship with Him. It is the central activity that defines our connection to God, embodied in seven action steps.

    Do you have a special place?
    A thinking spot, a little corner that you go to be alone with your thoughts or to relax, and fortify your spirit.

  • Lessons from my Father and a Summer Garden

    My experiences working in my garden this summer, made me reflect on dad and the legacy he passed on to us in understanding the value of “work”– not just any work but of “manual labor”– working with your hands.

  • Gifts of the Incomplete

    If you are anything like me, most days you are left with more things to do on your list than there is time left to do them. Being a maximizer type, those things that remain undone on my list really work my last nerve. It’s as though I am destined to be forever stuck in the twilight zone, tormented by a never ending list of things to do!
