Women, have you been silenced?

  My heart loves to walk with women who have been silenced. Why? Because their voice holds a key to healing – their own healing and the healing of MANY others. I know this because it is also my story. I have been coaching people since 2003 online in over 120 countries. I especially loveContinue reading “Women, have you been silenced?”

Persuasive Words of Men?

If your faith is based on the persuasive words of men, your faith will not go deep. 
When life difficulty comes, your faith will fall.
 But, if your faith is based on the power of Holy Spirit, 
the kingdom of God in your life will be unshakable. Jesus didn’t merely share information, nor motivational speaking. Jesus alwaysContinue reading “Persuasive Words of Men?”

How to End Things :(

I always thought you had to be FOREVER faithful to people, programs, and institutions to the very end. (One of my key values is loyalty and integrity.) Sadly, I learned the hard way some things and relationships must come to an end. Ouch. Sigh. After years of investing in some thing and someone, if thereContinue reading “How to End Things :(“

A Culture of Honour – Men and Women

Tears of healing began to roll down my face. I didn’t know what was happening in me at the time, but I found myself in a culture of honour – observing and experiencing men honouring women and vice versa. It was so powerful JUST WITNESSING IT. I wept deeply… healing much of the diagnosed psychological, emotional,Continue reading “A Culture of Honour – Men and Women”

What Does Freedom Look Like?

I recently asked Jesus this question: “What does freedom look like?” He immediately brought to mind the picture of the Israelites walking through the Red Sea escaping slavery… BUT … NOT grumbling and complaining in the wilderness wanting to go back to slavery …which, sadly, is what the Israelites did …and as a result diedContinue reading “What Does Freedom Look Like?”

Hybrid Church: ReThinking the Great Commission

Another beautiful thing happened recently in my city… 2 pastors from 2 different churches confessed to their congregations that the way they have been doing church is off… Instead, followers of Jesus are ALL called to be pastors and should be going out as Jesus did, not bringing people to church programs and relying onContinue reading “Hybrid Church: ReThinking the Great Commission”

Why not Canada?

by Don Klassen Originally posted by Light Magazine Canada (but because it’s been blocked by faulty security browsers, I’ve reposted here…) “Why not here?” is the question that pesters me when I see the growth of the church in many parts of the world. What is it that makes the gospel so appealing elsewhere?  Is thereContinue reading “Why not Canada?”

Who is My Shepherd?

Disclaimer: my thoughts are all over the place. There are like birds flying everywhere. 🙂 I’ve been processing a moral failure of a church pastor and watching the church fall apart. This man was a mentor to me in many ways. It was because of him and his wife, that I was encouraged to marryContinue reading “Who is My Shepherd?”
