“Imprisoned in my kayak, I leaned back and wondered if this choice I had made was perhaps the most foolish, ill-advised choice of my entire life.”
Paul Stutzman was stuck in the weeds. Literally stuck, in the thick weeds of a Mississippi River swamp.
All of us at one time or another are “stuck.” We may find ourselves at a place In our jobs, our marriages, our parenting, or our faith when there seem to be no answers and no clear path ahead. What does a follower of Jesus do then?
Stutzman gives an honest account of events and questions in his own life that left him feeling just as stuck as the thick, impenetrable swamp weeds that confounded his Mississippi River journey. In a pilgrimage to find answers and clarity on personal and faith issues, he hikes a famous trail in Spain and ponders how choosing to be a disciple of Christ affects the choices we all make in our pilgrimages.
His reflections will challenge the discipleship of every follower of Jesus.

Are you a Rose in a Pitcher or a Tulip in a Vase?
Sally Pickard and Brenda Dulmage have created five temperament types and then use a beautiful Vessel to symbolize each temperament. They also use a lovely Flower to portray each of the seven ways you function. They then present a pretty, feminine word-picture of a Flower inside a Vessel, which describes the characteristics of who you are, like a Daisy in a Basket or a Dogwood in a Velvet Box.
Their material helps you see yourself as a specific Vessel and Flower and realize how God planned it especially for you. It helps you understand yourself and others in your life.
“In my Willows by the Water stories you’re invited to experience God’s faithfulness as I learn the meaning of motherhood. The mountains. The valleys. The deserts. I feel blessed that you, my unknown sister in the call of motherhood, have chosen to spend your precious mother-time with me. When you’re through reading the stories in Willows by the Water, I hope you go on being a mother: Strengthened. Encouraged. Hopeful. Joyful. Somehow comforted that you’re not alone.”
