Following God into the im-possible

August 21, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

“Your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk ye in it,’ when you turn to the right or the left (Isa. 30:21).” Today, I feel led to share a very personal story with you. And as I do, I feel my vulnerability. It came to me again over the […]

For children of divorce, there is hope

August 16, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It was two faces, two names that slipped into my mind. And then slipped into my prayers. In morning’s golden light on a quiet, country road, I followed His lead and prayed this… Today, I am going to speak a very targeted word. This is not for everyone, but is rather for a particular group […]

Hey, you, raisin’ girls–good job!

August 11, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

On a bright August day, I sat across from her. In the birthplace of creativity where the nectar of the ‘little-g’ gods flows hot, we were chattin’. The delight that I felt when she said it swirled, warm and happy, all the way down to my toes. Like the coffee fillin’ my cup. Yeah. Just like […]

Why you should love the body you have

August 7, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Several weeks ago, Mr. Schrock and I escaped the confines of *The Three and took off a-runnin’ for a solid 12 days in paradise. Literally. It was on a bright, sun-drenched island in the Caribbean that we honeymooned for a second time, leaving our cares behind, relaxing so thoroughly that I actually heard myself say, “What four […]

Dear Sir, Our mother’s an Egyptian slave driver

August 4, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

If scientists in the future note a hiccup, a planetary burp in the alignment of the galaxy, I can explain. After years of fielding complaints from my famished, overworked, underpaid, completely put-upon children, there it came. “Thank you for teaching me how to work.” What may have been a small 3.4-magnitude temblor rumbled the slats of the […]

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 […]
