Writing for five unedited minutes on the prompt “Truth” for Five Minute Friday.
Yesterday afternoon I was hacked by a malicious tech support pop-up. In my desperation, I consented to the deceivers’ terms.
They lied over and over, promising to fix my computer remotely. Promising to accept payment wisely. Promising to install shields of protection when they were really scanning my computer for gold.
I didn’t recognize the red flags until it was too late. Then later I read this infographic, and learned how badly I was scammed.
In my daily life right now, I’m good with the Mary part and not so great with the Martha part.
My spiritual life is pretty great, but my house is a disaster, as usual.
Most women tell me the Mary part is hard for them. They struggle to find closeness with God, time to pray, and time to read his word. But for me, the Mary part in Luke 10 has always been a breeze.
What do you remember about your first Christmas as a newlywed?
I remember picking out our tree. We got married the week before Thanksgiving, and we were both still in college. On the Sunday of Thanksgiving break, I suggested that we put up a Christmas tree.
Are you able to find rest in the midst of Christmas? I know you just snickered and said, “Yeah, right.”

How have you used your God-given gifts to serve others?
As a high school student I had the opportunity to serve others with music.
