Dear parents of daughters, We’re on the same team

September 12, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Dear parents of daughters, Of all things, it happened again at church. There we were, talking about parenting in this tough and mixed-up world, and there it came. I used to laugh along with everyone else when “it” came up. I don’t think it’s funny any more. The “it” to which I refer is the […]

What a Category 5 can do

September 8, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

  I’ve told you this story before, but as the country waits to see what Irma will do and Texas still reels from Harvey’s wallop, my thoughts are traveling back. It was some years ago in the middle of one of the hardest times in my life. A child was self-destructing, my job had been cut […]

When you’re not the prettiest girl in the room

“Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress…The people walking in darkness have seen a great light. On those living in the land of deep darkness, a light has dawned.” Isaiah 9:1-2 We are walking along the road, Mister and I, enjoying our nightly debriefing. We’re talking, of all things, […]

Why porn’s no longer a threat

August 31, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Today, I’m going to step a bit outside my comfort zone and just talk plain about something that’s on my heart and mind. Pornography. If you’ve visited me here at all, you already know that I am the sole woman in a house full of men. As I’ve said before, “When I was young, I […]

Fathered by God, equipped to parent

August 30, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It happened a year ago ’bout now. I was standin’ in that beloved spot just there on the corner of Main and Six when she said it. “She” is the co-owner of Main Street Coffee House, the place where I wrote and wrote, setting pen to paper, stories flowing over page after page. In the […]

All I really want is the perfect purse

August 25, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It happened the other night. There I was, scrabbling around in my handbag, trying to find the Chapstick. Digging, digging, blood pressure rising… From the bowels of the closet, this is what The Mister heard, “I’m ready to throw this thing in the English Channel!” In the bowels of the closet, this is what I […]

“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 […]
