A Step of Faith, Across the Ocean to Africa!

  Our apologies if we may have reached out directly and this is repetitive, but we are taking this opportunity to let our blog followers know about another step of faith…. This summer Ross, Sara and I along with roughly 15 others from WoodsEdge Community Church have an incredible opportunity to take a 17-day mission trip […]

Love They Self

In order to receive good things, we must believe we are worthy of good things. If we don’t, we subconsciously reject the gift as it works its way down to our hearts and finds the doors locked. The gift may be beautiful, sincere and true – a complement; a lesson designed to impart truth and goodness; […]


Arise oh weary one. Arise and follow Me into Life. Trust in Me, lean in on Me from the epicenter of your heart. I will bring peace in unearthly ways.  Free the essence of your humanity. Learn to move to the heartbeat I provide. There is always hope. Some must look harder for it than […]

A Bowl of Cherries

An eye-catching bowl of cherry tomatoes has been sitting on my kitchen counter for over a week. Deep, bold, shiny and red. Day after day they sit there to remind me to snack well. Each passing day, they continue to sit. My habit of late has been to pass through the kitchen, open the freezer […]

God is making all things new, not all new things!

Revelation 21:5 says, And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new ” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Isaiah 65:17 says, “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former things will not be remembered or come to mind.” […]

Shouldn’t “Scrooge” Be a Compliment?

The annual Hauser family tradition of attending a live Christmas Carol was fulfilled once again this week at a small, intimate local theater with a traditional rendition of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas tale. Despite only six cast members, the second greatest (in my humble opinion) redemption story of all time was magnificently played out. Once […]

Trust Your Master

From the M4M Facebook page – wanted to share on our blog too!: Tom is in Africa for 3 weeks so thought I would put down some thoughts here if I can’t actually post! Savor the blessings of today: Before my quick morning routine of running a cordless vac over my tile flooring, removing the […]


We moved recently, downsized really, a move we should have made several years ago but didn’t because banks have this irritating policy of not wanting to make a you a smaller mortgage when your income is indeterminate, but are perfectly happy for you to go on paying for the bigger one. {Full disclosure – I […]

It Really Is That Simple

I honestly didn’t know what to write. I felt prompted to write, that I was supposed to write and I just wrote an entry but soon found myself deleting the whole thing. Words and even topics eluded me. Fear of having value crept in, so with the touch of a button it was gone. After […]

Look Up!

Change is everywhere I look these days – something I innately want to buck and fight. My survival instinct says, “fight to regain control and be comfortable!” then my recently uncovered true survival instinct, the more grand revealed Spirit which resides over the survival instinct, says “trust and stay strong, perhaps stronger than you ever […]
