How Do I Stop Over functioning?

By Leslie Vernick | November 27, 2019 |

Morning friends, I’m back and it sure feels good to be home and sleep in my own bed. Vacations are great, but I am a girl who loves routine and structure, which doesn’t happen on vacation. It’s good to have a break but equally as good to get back to a routine. If you’d like to see some pictures and…

Necessary Changes For A Destructive Person

By Leslie Vernick | October 31, 2018 |

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…

How Do I Stop Believing Lies And Learn To Walk In The Truth?

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…

I’m In A New Relationship But I’m Reacting The Same Old Ways

By Leslie Vernick | January 3, 2018 |

Morning friends, Happy New Year.  Do you ever pick a special word or a phrase to guide you for the year? I’ve done it a few times and it’s been a good anchor to help me remember what I want my focus to be on. It’s easy to lose focus and get distracted. One of the things that I know…

Am I Trying Too Hard?

By Leslie Vernick | June 21, 2017 |

Morning friends, I’ve had a whirlwind week of being a Nana. Love it, but it’s exhausting, especially when you are entertaining three darling little girls in 115-degree heat. But we did swimming and some shopping and playing games and today we cleaned “Nana’s office” so we could keep busy. This week’s question dovetails nicely with our peacekeeper’s question from last…

Putting My CORE Strength To The Test

By Leslie Vernick | October 7, 2015 |

Morning friends, I’m in California visiting my sweet granddaughters. Two of them have birthdays this month so we are celebrating at Disney, a child’s favorite place to be. Instead of answering a question this week I want to talk a little bit about how important it is that we learn to live from our CORE instead of our emotions. No…

Stop Accepting “Non-Apology” Apologies

By Leslie Vernick | April 8, 2015 |

Good morning friends, Thanks for all your prayers. I am back home safe and sound. We drove five days cross country with our dog, Gracie, but she was great through it all. It’s weird, but it already feels like a long time ago. I miss the grandchildren and the warm weather, but I am excited to be offering some new…

How Do I Break Up With A Destructive Friend?

By Leslie Vernick | February 18, 2015 |

Morning friends, We’ve been talking about our shadow and different parts of ourselves over the last few weeks. This week, I want to do something different – even a little weird but I think it might be very helpful for some of you to grasp more fully your shadow and/or the different aspects of your interior landscape. Let’s look at…

Help! I’ve Grown Dependent on My Christian Counselor

By Leslie Vernick & Co. | January 15, 2014 |

Morning friends, Thanks friends for understanding my change in blog posting dates. After prayer it occurred to me that my stress levels could be lowered considerably by changing my blog post date from Monday to Wednesday. Weekends are usually never a time for rest due to speaking or writing. Now that the blog isn’t going to be posted until Wednesdays,…
