By Leslie Vernick | September 4, 2019 |

Morning friends, I hope you had a great Labor Day Weekend. My grandkids were visiting and it’s always so fun to have them here. We watched the movie, Marry Poppins Returns and enjoyed it a lot.

By Leslie Vernick | August 21, 2019 |

Morning friends, This week I’m traveling to Toronto, Canada for some meetings. It’s so beautiful here. I wish I could stay longer. I’ve loved Vancouver, BC when I vacationed there a few years ago.

Morning friends, It’s been Nana camp again for this week in July. And it’s been fun. We’re going horseback riding tomorrow but the kids have been having a great time on our backyard zip line.

My Pastor Is Making The Situation Worse

By Leslie Vernick | June 19, 2019 |

Morning friends, Hope you have joined our Moving Beyond Challenge for this week. Today is Day Three, Moving beyond Unrealistic Expectations.

How Do I Stay Well With A Negative And Critical Man?

By Leslie Vernick | February 6, 2019 |

Morning friends, We’ve had quite a robust dialogue this past week, haven’t we? I think this is good. We all need truth tellers in our life to help us rightly divide the Word of God and also to see our situation more clearly. It’s both/and, not either or. Our blogger Veronica is right. Our ultimate truth tellers are God’s word…

By Leslie Vernick | January 23, 2019 |

Morning friends, I’m getting a little bit closer on my quest to find a puppy. I hope to be able to bring one home mid-to-late March, but we’ll see what God does. Thanks for your prayers. I’ll post a picture of her (or him) when it happens. I’m going to answer two questions today, well actually one question and one…

By Leslie Vernick | September 5, 2018 |

Morning friends, I hope you had a restful Labor Day weekend. Fall is soon to be upon us and many of you are busy, busy, busy. But are you intentional in your busyness? Are you doing what is important for LIFE or are you merely busy? Today I just reread the article I wrote for my January newsletter entitled, The…
