When forgiving the Other Woman sets you free

July 27, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Sitting across from her in a quaint, used-to-be coffee shop, she says it. “I have an exciting story to tell.” I’m holdin’ my fresh, double-dipped-in-butter hot pretzel, baptizing that baby in a cup of cheese, which is Italian for “heavenly manna.” And I’m listening. “This morning, she called me. I’ve been waiting for that phone call.” I dunk and nibble, licking […]

What sex is good for

July 24, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

I’m going to speak on a tough subject today. It was on my mind when I was out runnin’ this morning through green, green, tasseled corridors, cool air sweet-scented with corn. It is written in the context of marriage, and I believe the principles will apply to Christian and non-Christian marriages alike. Because of Whose idea it […]

Why you don’t have to fear your kids’ future

July 7, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It was a friend who reminded me of it just the other day. “You told me,” she said, “that it would be (his) story.” And here, she named her son. And then I remembered… I just want to pop in today and speak a quick word of wisdom to a parent who’s frettin’ over a […]

I found His heart’s desire at the taco shop

June 30, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It’s me, the storyteller, in on a Friday night. Unusual for me, yes, but so was the tale that unfolded. We’d planned it weeks ago. Nailed the date, wrote it down. We were going out with friends. But life happened, plans changed, and it didn’t work out. Then, an unexpected need in a different part […]

Why I may not pray what you’ve asked

June 28, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It came to me, as it often does, while I was out running along a country road. A name, a face; someone dear. She had slipped from my heart to my mind, and I knew what it meant. “Time to pray.” Now, in the past, in that old, working-so-hard way I’d lived in, I would’ve […]

When the grasses on Facebook are greener

June 27, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

On a gorgeous summer day, I’m going to offer a quick, cautionary word. In no wise is it meant to be predictive or prescriptive of all marriages in this land or in any land over the sea. For each union is as unique as the two people who comprise it, and there’s only One Who knows […]

What a surprise

June 20, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Yesterday, The Cub turned 11. Man alive. What a surprise that whole thing was! I was 38, rushin’ headlong at 40 when the stick turned pink. I’ll never forget it. It was the Monday after Thanksgiving is what it was. Which was when the evening stars fell straight from the heavens, the earth tilted on its axis, […]

Rain for dry sponges (you can!)

June 16, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Heads up, girls. Today, you will meet other women. Girls of all ages, shapes, sizes and talents will cross your path. The truth of it is that most of ’em aren’t convinced that they’re lovely or acceptable or worth much or just flat ‘okay’ the way they are. And the way they aren’t. What the […]

How a famine can bring restoration and plenty

May 23, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

I’m running along our country road, talking out loud to the Father I’ve come to know. “Talk to me about famine.” That’s what I say, for what’s on my heart this day is my own lean famine years. For so many long, lonely years, I did not know this good, kind Father. Oh, I knew […]

That ‘tank of destruction’ brings gifts (embrace joy)

May 12, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing (James 1:2-4).” On a bright, sun-drenched spring morning, the picture comes. A lovely, green […]
