(humor intended) Not only have we seen a tremendous upset in our day-to-day routines but we also are suffering from higher levels of anxiety, depression, and suicide. Finding hope when we feel hopeless has become more […]

I spent some time over this past summer with a friend and I casually mentioned something that I felt God had told me. His response was, “God doesn’t talk to me.” That made me so sad because I genuinely believe that God is willing to talk to everyone. However, there is a lot of noise […]

Have you ever found yourself in an awkward situation where telling the truth could hurt someone’s feelings? For example, when you are confronted with a direct question about whether or not you said something? How about when someone asks you if they are difficult to deal with, and you think they are? What about that uncomfortable situation where you must confirm or deny gossip about a leader. Do you want to become brave enough, to tell the truth at all times?

The idea of borrowing faith seemed unlikely for me before I had to actually draw on the reserves of others in order to move forward. My understanding was that faith is an individual thing. It was personal. I didn’t think that we could borrow faith or stand on the belief of others. However, I am a living testimony to the reality that this is part of growing in faith.

Are you looking for a Christian or spiritual mentor? I found myself in this situation several years ago. My initial thought was to automatically assume the pastor’s wife or the pastor himself would be that for me. However, I realized quickly having the kind of intimate relationship I desired would not be very likely. I found a mentor by outlining a few things of importance. In this post, I will share the qualities as well as the questions you should consider as you select and approach a potential Christian mentor.

You don’t have to accept whatever thoughts fall into your head…did you catch that? I’ll repeat another way. If a thought isn’t helpful you can reject and replace it. We are not at the mercy of whatever we think. We have the power to change our thoughts. That is the essence of renewing your mind. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 NIV

Facing Fear with Faith: A Story “Truman!” My husband gasped. I turned around to see my young son sitting stunned. I realized he wasn’t conscious although his eyes were open.

If you are a Mom you have experienced a sleepless night. Guaranteed. Whether sleeplessness was from waking to care for a sick child, or worried for a teenager who missed curfew you’ve been there and done that. What did you do to overcome the anxiety and knock-on physical depletion from an unwanted all-nighter? I used to drink copious amounts of coffee. Then I tried a regimented night-time routine for everyone in the house. (That lasted for about a week) Lastly, I got some really powerful advice from a friend and a pastor. My cure for sleeplessness was going to battle in prayer.
