Is Not Talking Cruel

By Leslie Vernick | March 17, 2021 |

Morning friend, I’d appreciate your prayers.  I’ll be speaking at the River Conference this weekend at Prestonwood Baptist Church near Dallas, TX. This is my first event since COVID and I’m sure it will feel a little weird.  Pray that people are met by God this weekend and find help to help others. Question: My desires are to stay well,…

How Do I Read His Kindness?

By Leslie Vernick | November 11, 2020 |

Morning friends, I’m thankful to be writing this blog today. I was hiking on Saturday in a new area with a friend. We made all the mistakes a hiker shouldn’t make.

Is Staying Well The Best Option?

By Leslie Vernick | September 30, 2020 |

Morning friends, I was in Chicago recently visiting with my family. This past weekend was my 50th high school reunion, but sadly it was canceled due to COVID (Of course – I graduated at 10 years old).

My Adult Children Blame Me Because I Refuse To Apologize

By Leslie Vernick | July 22, 2020 |

Morning friends,  Thanks for the book and movie recommendations. I’d especially appreciate your prayers over the next few weeks. I have a lot of moving parts on my plate and sometimes I don’t keep track of them all as well as I need to. Pray that I stay focused, that I am productive, and also take some time out to…

Using Words Not Anger To Have Good Boundaries

By Leslie Vernick | June 24, 2020 |

Morning friends, I’m in a hotel room in California this week, working hard to put my book The Emotionally Destructive Relationship in audiobooks. I’d appreciate your prayers. Reading an entire book into a tape recorder is not as easy as it sounds, and there are lots of mistakes and do-overs, even when you’re the one who wrote the book. But…
