The Holiness Project

It is relevant to here reveal two of my personal traits that I have heretofore kept hidden from you. Or maybe it would be more accurate to say: two traits that I have heretofore refrained from announcing publicly. You’ve probably picked up on them if you know me at all and you’ve been paying any sort of attention. (As a […]

Called to the Impossible

I haven’t forgotten that two months ago I started a conversation here about loving God—heart, soul, mind, and strength. But—with teaching and speaking and homeschooling and life—I’ve been finding it difficult to fit blogging into the mix. This might also be a good time to mention that I’m also working on another book! I’m so excited—especially since, just last week, […]

The Greatest Lesson Ever Learned

It began as a test. In Mark chapter 12 a group of religious leaders descended on Jesus and peppered Him with questions—for the purpose of trapping Him. They drilled Him on tricky subjects, such as taxes and the resurrection. And Jesus—confident and compassionate and clear—answered each one. Eventually, one man stepped out from the crowd.

What We’ve Been Up To

Phew! It’s been a busy season of ministry here. We’re already finishing the seventh week of the semester at Moody Bible Institute. (How did that happen?) And on the weekends throughout September, I’ve had the joy of speaking at several women’s retreats—one on Mackinac Island (incredible!), another at Lake Ann Camp (also gorgeous!), and a third at Conference Point on the lovely […]

I spent much of my (long, stormy) commute praying for them. And as I pulled into the parking garage, I remembered the prayer that I wrote last year at this […]

The Worralls Go West: Day 6 (Slowing Down)

According to my original plan (my structured, yet spontaneous “plan”), yesterday was going to be another long driving day—a utilitarian day really—a day to simply get from one place to another, from Tatum’s Haven to Denver (an 8-hour drive, without stops). Sitting at my dining room table three weeks ago and looking at the Google map to chart our course, […]

The Worralls Go West: Day 4

Yesterday was a long driving day—all the way across the state of Wyoming, the tenth largest state in the country, but also the least populated. In the morning, before we left Hill City (SD), we decided to try our hand at geocaching since there was an easy geocache located in the Hill City Cemetery. If you aren’t familiar with geocaching, there’s a […]
