Learn to live in Love’s freedom

I lived in hiding for over a decade, presenting a façade to everyone I met. I was the loving, respectable, stay-home housewife. The honorable mother and godly Sunday school teacher. No one knew the shame, the secrets I carried.

No one, that is, except God.

He saw my deepest wounds and everything I tried so hard to hide. He knew me well before my husband pulled me off the streets of Tacoma. He saw the high school dropout who spent more time drunk than sober, the girl without hope, or even a thought for her future.

But His vision, His love, went much deeper, and His call reached much farther than merely granting me salvation. He wanted to give me deep, unyielding spiritual and emotional freedom, the kind that says, “Yeah, I was a mess. I still am. But you know? That’s okay, because I’m loved and eternally accepted.”

And so, bit by bit, God began to expose and then uproot all the lies I had come to believe about myself. Lies like, “I’m unlovable. Ignorant. Shameful. Worthless.” He began to replace those lies with truth until, over time, I came to believe everything He said about and to me. The process was far from quick or easy, but it’s one He wants to take us all on.

Often, when we think about grace, we stop at salvation, which is awesome enough. But God wants to take us to total freedom so we can walk into any room, encounter any hardship, and remain strong and unshakable in our identity in Him. He wants us to give His voice prominence over all the others that bombard us each day, and learn to rest, truly rest, in His love for us.

Living loved is more than the intellectual consent that God loves us. It’s allowing the truth to permeate so deeply that our hearts begin to heal, our perceptions become clear, faith replaces fear, and we know-know-know with every fiber of our being that we are God’s beloved daughters.

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
