By Leslie Vernick | September 14, 2022 |

Morning friend, I had a great time at the American Association of Christian Counselors conference last week in Dallas. It was hard work and emotionally and physically draining but I sensed an openness and willingness to listen as I have not before. Perhaps it’s been all the recent news stories about how the church has covered up abuse of many…

Living In The Truth When It’s Hard And Ugly

By Leslie Vernick | August 31, 2022 |

Morning friend, I’m angry as I answer this reader’s question. I’m angry at her church and pastors for not being wise enough to know what they were dealing with and continuing to make the mistake of prioritizing the institution of marriage and a man’s sexual needs over a wife’s safety, sanity and the well-being of the children in this destructive…

Work On You

By Leslie Vernick | July 20, 2022 |

Morning friend, Thank you for all your engagement regarding the stress of co-parenting.  The problem is real and attempting to get the “other parent” to be different than he’s already shown you that he is can drive you crazy.  Instead, strengthen your own mindset, communication skills, and spiritual armor so that you can continue to be the parent/person that you…

It’s the second week of July – my sabbatical month and I am really enjoying the break.

All these things feed my soul which fires up my creativity.  One of my coaches, Susan, will answer this week’s blog…
