Will the Real Me Please Stand Up?

All my life, I have struggled with being a doormat. For a long time, I thought that's what I should be. No one really explained that things could (or should) be different.

Let the Daily Journey of Transformation Begin

I am immersed right now in editing the book of an inner healing teacher and spiritual coach. As I work through (and live) the words of this book, I am reminded of why inner healing is an ongoing, even daily process - the dying to self daily of 1 Corinthians 15:31.

Honor is Not the Same as Tolerance

When I was growing up, my mom would often vent to me about her bitterness toward people. My mom was not the kind of person people would think of as bitter. In public, she came across as quiet and kind, and a little bit quirky and eccentric. What people didn’t realize was that her compassion … Continue reading Honor is Not the Same as Tolerance

Don’t Avoid the Pain

I used to try almost anything to avoid pain (food addiction, denial, avoiding people, deciding not to care, etc.). I even caused my own pain to avoid the pain of being hurt by someone else. That may sound crazy, but if you have been in an abusive relationship, you might understand that. Little did I … Continue reading Don’t Avoid the Pain

How Do I Pray for a Performance-Driven Child?

I was asked a question about prayer from a mom who also works with children. Her concern was about how to pray for/with children who are performance-driven. We see a lot of that, especially in American society. I’m not sure about other places in the world, but in the United States, we have a way … Continue reading How Do I Pray for a Performance-Driven Child?

Generational healing prayers are among my favorites. Why? Because I have seen such powerful changes through these prayers.

Amazing Dream about Inner Healing

Last night, I had a weird, freaky, but also amazing dream. In the dream, I was placed inside a vision and I was supposed to write about it. I was put inside the enemy camp. I was surrounded by demons of all shapes and sizes, including big ones taller than a two-story building. I could … Continue reading Amazing Dream about Inner Healing
