Welcome to my blog about living as apprentices of Jesus! I am passionate about spiritual transformation and about helping others become like Jesus for the sake of others.
One of my favorite quotes is: "Whatever job we get and whatever task we are assigned can serve as a container for grace" (Eugene Peterson in "Practical Resurrection"). I pray that the words and sentences on this blog may also serve as "containers of grace" for its readers.
I ordinarily post on Sunday, Wednesday and Friday and welcome your comments on any post!

For me, 2017 has been a year of heaviness and darkness. I am not depressed or guilt-ridden; I just feel the weight of the world’s chaos and pain. Perhaps I have been gifted by the Holy Spirit with a greater sense of … Continue reading
I was making breakfast when I noticed that the kitchen sink was clogged up. How in the world did that happen overnight?! I could see my vision of an orderly day going “down the drain.” I turned the garbage disposal on … Continue reading
