I Am a Stubborn Person

by Erin Wallace

I’m going to tell you a little bit about myself that I don’t like to admit.  I am a very, very stubborn person.  I really don’t like to admit that I am wrong. I’ve gotten a lot better at admitting it over the years; when I first met Tim, I just couldn’t get the words, […]

An Angry Nation

by Erin Wallace

Americans are angry.  I probably don’t need to tell you that, because anger is everywhere these days.  From angry Facebook posts and comments to irate news reporters, it’s almost impossible to get through the day without encountering anger in some form.  Results of a study done in by Gallup in 2018 showed that 1 in […]

Heavy Heart

by Erin Wallace

My heart is heavy.  In the past week, I’ve seen things on the news that I never thought I’d see in my lifetime.  I’ve seen innocent people hurt, tear gassed, and killed.  I’ve seen riots, violent clashes, and people in agony, both physical and psychological.  Our nation is fractured along racial and political lines.  People […]

A Dark Week

by Erin Wallace

I’m going to be honest with you.  I have had a very dark week.  Each day has been a struggle emotionally and physically.  One minute, I’m feeling okay, the next I’m bored to the very depths of my soul, and then the next my depression has crept in and my mind becomes slow and foggy […]

What God Has Been Doing in Me

by Erin Wallace

Last night at the Leadership Community Zoom meeting, Pastor Conrad asked us all what God has been doing in us during this season of isolation.  I’d like to take a moment to talk about something that God has been doing in me (and many other church leaders).  This period has been difficult for me in […]

Let’s Talk About Mental Health

by Erin Wallace

I’d like to talk to all of you about mental health today.  We are living through an unprecedented time that has required us to isolate ourselves from the greater community.  Because of this, our brains and bodies are also trying to adjust to a completely new way of life and mentally we are grieving the […]
