The Exercise That Opened My Eyes to White Privilege

I used to be what I would consider "white privilege neutral." I believed it existed, but I unknowingly had the wrong definition in my head. I thought that white privilege was class exclusive, and that it was really only financially pertinent. ...more

Same-Sex Marriage: Why Everybody's Right ... and Wrong

Lines have been drawn, the symbolic moral high road taken, and the demands for social acceptance...um... demanded in the latest showdown between Christians and homosexuals in the War on Marriage/ Battle for Marriage Equality.

Easy Steps for Law of Attraction

That moment you realize that everything is going right, all that you need or want is coming into your life right when its suppose to be. Some call this luck, coincidence, or just plan chance, but I call this synchronicity or being in the vortex. This whole week I have been focusing my attention on what I do want. Everything you can imagine has gone wrong and I just didn't let it phase me. I just allowed the Universe to do what it must in order for me to get what I need....more

Do You Expect Jesus to be Your Friend with Benefits?

I honestly don't really know how to open this post. I want to introduce this topic with a normal introduction, but I think I'll just skip the pleasantries and dive right in. I've been asking some hard questions about what I believe. Questions like: "WHY do I believe what I believe?" "Do I really know Jesus Christ or am I just going through the motions?" "Am I truly trusting Christ for my salvation or am I actually putting my faith in something else?" "Is Jesus enough for me?" ...more

Leaving Shame in the Dust

Psalm 31:17 “Let me not be put to shame, Lord for I have cried out to you.”Nobody likes to be disgraced or feel shame. Yet, many of us live in constant shame and aren’t even aware. We have lived in it for so long that it seems normal. Shame is a dark feeling of unworthiness and guilt. It’s the feeling that makes you want to hide when you walk into a room of people. The feeling that you aren’t good enough to be there....more

Buddha's Teachings for Women

  Sita is the Hindu goddess personifying loving submission to the masculine, the divine, and life itself. The stolen and then abandoned wife; she stands for love and suffering, the same way Mary does for Christians. I am sure we all know a female relative with the same qualities. Somehow, as women, we have all nurtured or suffered from these “inherited” traits. ...more

Being A Grown-Up Stinks

I mean that in the nicest possible way, of course. Remember when we were kids, and we couldn't wait to grow up? "I'll do what I want and you can't make me go to bed (or eat my vegetables, or clean my room...)!"Well, this being a grown-up has its moments, all right. I mean, I DO occasionally eat ice cream for supper, and I have been known to stay up reading or playing a game until even I realized I was being stupid....more

Based on my research I believe Zig Ziglar coined the phrase False Evidence Appearing Real & I have heard Joyce Meyer use it as well. It is a great acronym and fits perfectly with this latest entry. When we stop to think about it most of our fears are exactly that false evidence appearing real. However can feel very real because they may be rooted in a little bit of truth or what has ...more

What Do You Want?

When I look at the moon and the stars twinkling above, the tiny lights remind me that He is near.  There is no space between us.  When I look at the sun’s rays beaming through clouds in the morning, the streams of light speak of His power.  His hands are able to move all things in the direction of His will.  When I see still water reflecting the skies, I think of His peace.  He is never impatient and always on time.  Sometimes when I breathe, I see that He is right there giving me air.  He is our life line....more
