PANDEMICS, PROTESTS, POLITICS & MORE
This decade is off to a rough start. So far, the 2020’s are marked by a deadly global pandemic, distressing racial tensions, divisive partisan politics, and white-knuckle economic uncertainty.
When I’m stressed—and who isn’t these days?—loving my neighbor is a command I admit I want to ignore. But just when we think we might get a little break, we realize this is exactly when we are needed most.
This free download is a bonus chapter for How to Love Your Neighbor Without Being Weird, updated with all new tips and tools to love your neighbor “in these uncertain times”.

My passion is teaching God’s word as a “How To” manual, and I learned to explain complex theology in simple terms and bring high concepts into daily living by inviting women of all ages and faith backgrounds into my own living room.
As founder of an international ministry that helps women start neighborhood Bible studies in their homes, sharing the Gospel in our everyday environments is close to my heart. I have a degree in Christian Ministry and have leadership experience in church planting, women’s ministry, small groups, and parachurch organizations. I am a church volunteer, community organizer, and business owner–and don’t forget wife, mom, daughter, and neighbor.
Like you, I’m figuring out our new normal one day at a time in 2021.
In the middle of a global pandemic, in the midst of worldwide social unrest, we found ourselves in our own mess—earthshattering, heartbreaking events right in our own homes.
Around the world and right on your street, our neighbors are dealing with deeply personal problems that far outweigh the current crisis of the day.
This new normal is anxiety on steroids. It’s sad and scary, and they are desperate for hope. They are looking for answers, they are searching for relief. We all are. Our neighbors are watching to see how we respond when our faith in Christ collides with crisis.
