  • What Are You Reacting To?

    Reactions are strong emotions (i.e. anger) that we have in response to external events (i.e. being cut off in traffic) or people. For example, let’s say my spouse points out a mistake or corrects me in some area (this is a made up example…ha ha). I feel hurt, frustrated, and angry. Seems simple enough, a lot of […]

    The Not Perfect Christmas

    I love Christmas.  I love the cooler weather, the warm clothes, warm coffee, and snuggling under blankets with family.  I love buying gifts, wrapping gifts, giving gifts, attending Christmas eve service, being with family, and watching Christmas movies.  Yet, let’s be honest ladies…Christmas for moms (or women in general) can be STRESSFUL.  As if we don’t […]

  • speak to yourself like a friend

    Be a Friend to Yourself

    We tend to be much harsher in our thoughts than we would ever be with a friend.  When we mess up or make a mistake or fall into tempation….most of us tend to then terrorize ourselves in our mind. What kinds of things are you saying to yourself?  Does it fall into this category:  I should have done […]

    The Six C’s for Managing Anxiety, Biblically

    Anxiety is a powerful emotion that can develop into a vicious cycle.  It may start for one reason but the cycle can continue for different reasons.  See my previous post on anxiety for a more detailed explanation of how this cycle starts and continues. Now, understanding anxiety is helpful but what someone struggling with anxiety really […]

  • A Lifesaver for Lonliness

    Mother Theresa stated, “Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.”  Albert Schweitzer said, “We are all so much together, but we are all dying of loneliness.”  Can you relate?  Am I the only one who feels lonely?  Am I alone in my loneliness?  I work three jobs to try and […]

    Anxiety

    ANXIETY! What an ugly word that conjures images  of stressful moments, failures, fears, and bodily anguish!  Those that suffer from it know that it is the uninvited guest that completely destroys the present moment.  And, unless you’ve battled this monster, you don’t completely understand the intensity or cyclical nature of this problem.  So for all fellow strugglers  and for those that love someone who […]

    Parenting, the Great Surprise!

    Well, I became a mom almost 14 years ago (wow, when did I become so old?)  and although I love my kids and I love being mom, nothing, I repeat, NOTHING, prepares you for this! I mean how did I become the finder of all lost things, the fixer of all broken things, the chef, […]

  • Isaiah 61

    Isaiah 61 is a Bible passage written for counselors. True, these words found their initial fulfillment with Isaiah’s audience and their ultimate fulfillment in Christ’s earthly messianic ministry (see Luke 4:18ff), but the passage penned 2800 years ago is the heartbeat of Christian counseling today.  See the New International Reader’s Version of this chapter followed verse […]

    The Pearl of Great Price: Christian Counseling’s Best Seller

    As I ponder my counseling sessions with clients who present with all sorts of distress and personal dysfunction, I am reminded to give thanks to the One who called me into this profession in the first place.  As Christian counselors, we may have some reservation (small or large) about billing ourselves as “Christian Counselors” because we […]

    Couples Cannot Not Communicate

    “Whoa, whoa, whooooah!  That’s too much info!  Come on Hon’, can’t you just cut to the chase?  When I ask you what time it is, must you always tell me how your watch was built?” Have you ever experienced some variation of the above conversation with your spouse?  Couples notoriously experience what they term a […]
