Healing A Poor Self-Image

December 15, 2021 | COMMENTS

Revenge Is Self-Destructive

November 6, 2021 | COMMENTS
One of my all-time favorite teachers is Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  and he is so clear about getting even.  It makes sense.  He was a true student of Jesus.  They knew the power of forgiveness to transform not... Read More

Facing the feelings

My tipping point finally came!

Waking From the Nightmare

Holiness guaranteed

Sharing the Love

September 20, 2021 | COMMENTS
Things are shifting. Deeply. Constantly and consistently, things are changing. Minds are changing, lives are changing, rules are changing. The things that change are of this world. The things that don’t change are eternal. Our nature is eternal, infinite, perfect... Read More

Let the Storm Pass

Putting An End to Pain

July 16, 2021 | COMMENTS

Why Bother

May 31, 2021 | COMMENTS

Patience Leads to Love

May 14, 2021 | COMMENTS

Letting Go of Sadness

May 13, 2021 | COMMENTS

Depression Be Gone

Emotional Breakdown
