My daughter Julia asks for this soup nearly every day. Patrick and I first tasted tortilla soup in Puerto Vallarta on our honeymoon. For several years, I looked for a recipe, gave up, and finally developed one of my own. If you don’t have time to make the tortilla strips, you can substitute store-bought chips.
1 Tbs. Butter
1 yellow onion, chopped finely
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1 small can green chilies
1 can (14.5 ounce) diced tomatoes
1 can black beans, drained (You may also use red kidney beans)

This Little Prayer of Mine—my very first children’s book—will be on bookshelves Feb. 16th.
My own little prayer right now is that children and their parents will respond to it the same way adult readers did to my first two books, A Travel Guide to Heaven, and Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To. In those books, I tried to distill complex theological subjects and make…

I spent the past few days at the Dallas gathering of the US delegates for the Cape Town 2010 congress. To say I felt completely humbled is a gross overstatement. I got to meet and talk with so many amazing people, heads of ministries, devoted followers of Jesus, people with amazing stories.
One of the songs we sang was the song God gave Patrick and me when we prepared for heading to France as missionaries, Be Thou My Vision. The verse that grabbed us was this one:
Riches I heed not
Nor man’s empty praise

I’ve wondered for quite some time why I devoured and loved To Kill a Mockingbird. It’s only been recently that I realized why Tom Robinson’s story touched me so. He was on the outside. Not included. On the fringes. Not believed. Forsaken by many.
There were times in my life I felt that way, and I suspect many of you have had periods where you’ve felt on the outside. School breeds these kinds of feelings. I remember wearing the wrong clothes to my…
