“The Moses Conspiracy” and a giveaway

March 29, 2013 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Today, I have the privilege of introducing a writer friend of mine, Susan Reinhardt.  Susan and I have followed each other’s blogs for quite some time now, and we’ve followed each other’s writing journeys as well. After waiting (for six years, to be exact), God did what He often does–He moved and He shook, and […]

“This just in…”

March 28, 2013 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

WAKARUSA – On a bright Thursday morning, there’s a lot to report from this sleepy little town. Outside, the sun is shining, and the first of the Wakarusa birds have returned from–well, wherever it is they fly off to in the winter. As they’re out there, chirping “to beat the band,” as my mother always […]

Criss cross, applesauce–Mama brings simplicity to Congress

March 26, 2013 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Note: This Grounds for Insanity column appeared in the 03’/25/13 edition of The Goshen News. If Mama went to Washington, things would move and shake. Sitting in the back of the room, I heard her say it. “Criss cross. On your bottoms!” It was Little Schrock’s pretty, blonde and cheerful teacher. Settling into the now-familiar […]

One day, God

March 25, 2013 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Popping in, BOP (Bright Orange Purse) on my shoulder, I’m waiting at the counter when she comes. “Are you having a good day?” She says it, smiling, that cheerful barista. “It’s a great day!” I say, smiling right back. “And here’s why…” Today, I feel compelled to tell you a story. It began nearly two years […]

Small-arms instructor hosts workshops–using her own two arms

March 19, 2013 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Note:  This Grounds for Insanity column was published in the 03/18/13 edition of The Goshen News. And you? What, uh, “workshops” are you currently hosting? There had to be a better way. I wasn’t asking for the Brooklyn Bridge or the moon on a platter. All I wanted was one simple change; a little old […]

The password that never fails

March 15, 2013 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It’s early. The sky begins to lighten outside the plate-glass windows. Sipping from the mug, my thoughts turn heavenward, and I whisper to Father what I often say to start the day aright: “What is Your word for me today?” Feeling the nudge, I flip the pages, eyes landing at last in Colossians. And read […]

Although we can’t be six, we can have that faith

March 12, 2013 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Note: This Grounds for Insanity column was published in the 03/11/13 edition of The Goshen News. It was a privilege, really, to enter their world. The sight of those squirming six-year-olds on the story rug was a very bright spot on a cold, wintry day. It was February, Reading Month. A local television station had […]

“I know where you are”

March 11, 2013 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It’s Writing Day. Wheeling out of the drive, van heading south, I begin as I usually do on these trips. And I start like this: “Good morning.” I greet them all, the precious Trinity. “Good morning, Father. Good morning, Jesus. And good morning, Holy Spirit.” With their names on lips, my heart awakens, turns a’right, […]

“Your heart is in My hands”

March 8, 2013 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Driving in, dawn cracking sky, I’d floundered. Gone right ahead and flailed there in full view of His all-seeing eye. Nestling in at my favorite place, surrounded by high brick walls and pressed-tin ceilings, I cracked the cover, feeling lost, unfit to diagnose myself. And this is what I found: “The Lord has taken away […]

Leave the excuses to the experts, please

March 5, 2013 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

According to a February 2009 CareerBuilder.com survey of more than 8,000 workers, a full 20% said they are late to work at least once a week. A surprising 12% admitted to being tardy at least twice a week. The majority of workers (33%) blamed traffic while 24% said it was lack of sleep. Other reasons […]
