When God Sends a Cardinal by Helen Sarver

There is an old folklore saying that, “When God sends a cardinal, it’s a visitor from heaven.” My mother was a collector of cardinal figurines and placed them in pairs throughout the house. For the most part, I paid little credence to her red-feathered friends until after her death in 1999. A week following her service, I was walking from the mailbox and a female cardinal landed on the front porch. She began chirping wildly, as if she was saying, “Good morning, Helen!” Another amazing appearance of my “cardinal family” happened in March of 2001, two months after my father passed away. My sister and I were in Florida facing the task of taking care of our parents’ house. I stayed at the house alone the final two days. As I left their house that final time, two cardinals were perched on the front porch railing. My eyes filled with [...]

The Daily Message 2024

Would you like to join me on a journey of reading through the Bible in a year? It just takes a commitment of 10-15 minutes a day for a whole life transformation. I have done this with a variety of translations in the past and this year I am using as my guide The Daily Message by Eugene Peterson. I would like our group chat to be edifying and encouraging. My aim in this group is to foster dialogue, to engender your honest words about God’s holy Word. It is not so much to answer questions as an expert but raise questions so together we can better be “stewards of the mysteries of God.” A few tips from my four decades of reading through the Bible. 1) Begin with prayer asking God to speak to you through the Word. 2) Consider this more a “formational” study. Read less for mere [...]

The Time is Now: Hope for Troubled Minds has Arrived

The time has come. The wait is over (or at least soon coming to an end). A project five years in the making that cultivated the gifts of so many beautiful blessings is now in print, and on Kindle/ebook. We made a commitment to give complimentary copies to contributors and make pre-ordered books available at a discount. It was only through the generous gifts of passionate advocate donors that we could pull this off. And with them, we did. Now, Amazon will take over selling and shipping. We are grateful that through them we can reach a broader community (though at a slightly higher price). So what happens now? I'll tell you. If you want to know more about the book and purchase a copy, go to our website link: https://delightindisorder.org/hftm-order/ Spread the news of Hope for Troubled Minds on your social media and in person. When you've read a [...]
