Tanya Dennis is a writer, editor and Bible teacher. Her life adventures include working alongside the UNHCR (United Nations Head Commissioner for Refugees) in war-torn Bosnia and church-planting both in the US and abroad. Equipped only with three ridiculous French phrases, she taught ESL (English as a Second Language) to Chinese immigrants in a German-speaking town of Switzerland. Her current role as mother of two has proven most challenging of all.

She grew up in rural Indiana, attended college outside of Philadelphia, and now resides with her husband and two miracle children 30 minutes outside of Manhattan.

A Prayer for those Treading Water

Do you have a regular prayer that you repeat over and over?

Margaret Feinberg shared in her book Wonderstruck about a time she become so weary in spirit that all she could pray was:

God is good.
God is on the throne.
Breathe in.
Breathe out.

These were the words she whispered while making snow angels in the crumbs on her kitchen floor. It’s such a vivid picture of crying out to God.

David Foster Wallace
“Because here's something else that's weird but true: in the day-to day trenches of adult life, there is actually no such thing as atheism. There is no such thing as not worshipping. Everybody worships. The only choice we get is what to worship. And the compelling reason for maybe choosing some sort of god or spiritual-type thing to worship—be it JC or Allah, be it YHWH or the Wiccan Mother Goddess, or the Four Noble Truths, or some inviolable set of ethical principles—is that pretty much anything else you worship will eat you alive. If you worship money and things, if they are where you tap real meaning in life, then you will never have enough, never feel you have enough. It's the truth. Worship your body and beauty and sexual allure and you will always feel ugly. And when time and age start showing, you will die a million deaths before they finally grieve you. On one level, we all know this stuff already. It's been codified as myths, proverbs, clichés, epigrams, parables; the skeleton of every great story. The whole trick is keeping the truth up front in daily consciousness.”
David Foster Wallace , This Is Water: Some Thoughts, Delivered on a Significant Occasion, about Living a Compassionate Life

“Any amount of theology can now be smuggled into people's minds under the cover of fiction without their knowing it.”

“Good fiction’s job is to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.”
David Foster Wallace

“If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.”
Albert Einstein

William Paul Young
“Forgiveness is not about forgetting. It is about letting go of another person's throat......Forgiveness does not create a relationship. Unless people speak the truth about what they have done and change their mind and behavior, a relationship of trust is not possible. When you forgive someone you certainly release them from judgment, but without true change, no real relationship can be established.........Forgiveness in no way requires that you trust the one you forgive. But should they finally confess and repent, you will discover a miracle in your own heart that allows you to reach out and begin to build between you a bridge of reconciliation.........Forgiveness does not excuse anything.........You may have to declare your forgiveness a hundred times the first day and the second day, but the third day will be less and each day after, until one day you will realize that you have forgiven completely. And then one day you will pray for his wholeness......”
William P. Young, The Shack
