Morning friend, I just finished answering a survey from a college student on what beliefs keep Christian women stuck in destructive/abusive marriages. I’d love for you to give your input on what beliefs have kept you stuck. Here’s one common belief I’ve found. “If I give up hope for my husband to change, I’m giving up on God.” Is this…Read More
What Do I Do When Someone Keeps Bringing Up My Sins?
Morning friend, Have you been practicing gratitude this week? I hope so. It’s a game-changer when you faithfully practice it. Studies show that we all have limited attention. Watch this video to see an example of what you can miss and not even know it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGQmdoK_ZfY We don’t see everything, even when it’s obvious or right in front of our…Read More
How Much Should I Forbear
Morning friends, Do you ever read the Bible and “see” a new verse in there? One that you’ve never seen before even though you’ve read it from cover to cover several times? I love that about God’s word. It’s living and active. It comes alive in different places in new ways each time we read it. The verse that popped…Read More
Is My Hope Realistic?
Morning friends, For me, Christmas is the season for quiet. For stillness. For reflection on the reality of “Emmanuel, God with us” Pray for me that I would know that God is in this place. So many places the Bible reminds us that the person didn’t realize that God was present when he was. How would your life be different…Read More
Using Words Not Anger To Have Good Boundaries

What is Verbal Abuse?
Morning friends, Thanks for your prayers. My body is healing from last week’s fall. My finger is still pretty stiff and swollen but each day I feel better. If you haven’t had a chance to check them out, I’d encourage you to head over to my Facebook professional page and start watching our short 3-5 minute nugget videos. They are…Read More
I Want To Please God Most. Will Separating From A Destructive Spouse Ruin That?
Morning friends, I imagine you’ve all read or heard in the news the expose’ on what’s happening within the Southern Baptist Church in their mishandling and covering up of abuse inside their ranks. It’s heartbreaking and sinful. It’s everything that’s against justice, truth, and the heart of God. Abuse Of Faith Southern Baptist Leaders And Volunteers Accused Of Sexual Misconduct…Read More
Necessary Changes For A Destructive Person
Morning friends, I am on a two week speaking gig to New Orleans, then North Carolina, and then Florida and I’d appreciate your prayers. Instead of answering a question this week, I thought I’d share an observation from Elisha’s interaction with Naaman from 2 Kings Chapter 5. Naaman was a mighty warrior and commander in the army of…Read More
