2012 Northwest Ministry Conference in Seattle

This weekend was the 7th (or 8th) year in a row that I've been privileged to present at the Northwest Ministry Conference in Seattle, Washington.  This is the largest conference of its kind in the US, and over 3,000 people attend.  There are dozens of workshops and fabulous worship sessions.  Once again, Vessel was asked to present a full day pre-session for Church Office workers.  And, as we've done for all the years, our booth was…

Easter week miracle

Sunday evening  the 17th of April, I received a phone call from the care center where my husband is and they told me that he had had some kind of an episode and they were thinking it was a stroke.  So I left immediately and drove over there. The decision was made to call 911.  A CAT scan at the E.R. did not show anything, except the two small brain bleeds he had acquired from two bad falls the past week or two.  They then transported him back to the care center.

On Monday afternoon…

A "Thank You"

With this being the Resurrection season, I have been very busy  getting much done for the congregations at the church where i work. I don't like to use that as an excuse for not writing a thank you to Kathy Slamp for the wonderful seminar held recently in Portland, but truly, it is my reason, along with bad new regarding my own health. [What to they know! :)]

But I walked away from that seminar with a notebook filled with ideas, other new thought, and a desire to serve the three…

Thanks for praying.  Let me give you all an update, so you can continue to pray with purpose.


Today was a follow-up appointment for the CT scan I had done last week.  It was not what I had anticipated.  As the oncologist shared, they were trying to diagnose a lesion found on my kidney, when that hasn't come to the forefront as the major issue. 

The abdominal pain that I have been experiencing is a result of fluid in the abdomen, as well as thickening of the…

Update and Prayer Request

Many thanks to those who have been praying for me.  Recently, I read in Jesus Calling, Relax in my Healing Presence.  That has been such a good reminder for me during these days.

Because of suspected infection, my maintenance chemo for Ovarian Cancer was put on hold.  I was concerned about this, but now can see it has been for a purpose.  A dental problem developed, which could not have been treated had I been receiving chemo. …

Prayer Request

I would like to request prayers for my health.  I know that prayer is a strong tool in our arsenal to fight the evil that is happening in our lives and it has already proven to help me with some of my medical issues.  I have been diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension and nonspecific interstitial pnuemonitis.  They are both idiopathic (no known cause) and are running independently yet simultaneously.  As a result of one of the medications I have been taking, I now have cataracts that are…

My Prayer for Bev


I pray that God's healing presence will be with you. Medications can be so tricky, but God knows every cell in your body and is attentive to your needs. He will see you through this time of uncertainty and discomfort. I know he will. Your faith is strong! Take time to rest! You are permitted to do so during this time of healing.

Christmas Thoughts 2009

Recently, I stood near a hill at the edge of Jerusalem. Just five miles or less from where I stood is the village of Bethlehem. At the time of Christ's birth, Bethlehem was a small villege, but now it is a political hotbed in the "West Bank." I stood looking over a huge man-made wall that has been recently erected between Bethlehem and Jerusalem--a wall built specifically to keep people from crossing into Jerusalem from Bethlehem. Sadly, for the… Continue
