Your support makes our mission possible!
Your gift supports the vision of a Christian culture that utilizes "the passions" to foster intimacy with Christ and unity with his Church.
Mission EDIFY operates under the fiscal sponsorship of Women's Non-profit Alliance, a 501(c)3 parent organization.
What are the passions?
"The passions are the feelings, the emotions or the movement of the sensible appetite--natural components of human psychology--which incline a person to act or not act in view of what is perceived as good or evil. The principle passions are love and hatred, desire and fear, joy, sadness, and anger."

I've been gone a while. On a sabbatical I can't say I planned. As many of you know, I'm a single mother and I'm facing some major issues with my teenage son. Plus, and I'll tell you more later, but my beloved Jasmine (my nine-year-old black lab), died three weeks ago. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor. And my heart is broken beyond belief. God almighty, I loved that dog.
I have not forgotten about you. I pray everyday. It's just that until school is out (June 5), blogging is a bigger stretch than I have the capacity to make at the moment.
So now I ask for your prayers. I know God is faithful. The challenge I face is that no matter how good a mom I am, I cannot be a good dad to my son.
I know many of you know how this feels. If you have some words of wisdom for me on this topic, I welcome your comments. Just click on contact me and contact away.
Thank you for your patience, and thank you for being you--even if you've lost patience with me and my occasional disappearances.
I always sign off: You are not alone. Tonight I gently remind myself: present company inlcuded.
We are not alone,
