My Adult Children Blame Me Because I Refuse To Apologize
Morning friends, Thanks for the book and movie recommendations. I’d especially appreciate your prayers over the next few weeks.

Do Christians Have Rights?[Guest Post]
Morning Friends, We’ve had a great discussion regarding narcissism this week and whether or not it’s possible to stay well. I appreciate all of your contributions and your desire to stay Biblically true and compassionate for the real-life pain that many of you live with day after day as you try to stay sane in a crazy-making environment. One of…Read More
Does Grace and Forgiveness Erase Negative Consequences or Amends Making after Serious Sin?
Morning friends, I’m home. Although I miss the sunny California warmth, it is so good to be back to my own house and bed. This week I am doing a free webinar on Thursday night on Healing a Destructive Marriage: The Roadmap. Click here for more information.

How I Got Covered In Poison
Morning friends, Please pray for me. I am covered with poison ivy. I will get through this but for the moment it’s pretty miserable.

Topic: My husband won’t change, my pastor can’t help, and I am a mess!
Morning friends, Today I’m flying home from sunny (and I mean SUNNY) California where I just spent nine wonderful but exhausting days cooking and taking care of my grandbabies. The weather has been unusually hot and I can’t believe I’m saying this, as a girl who LOVES the sunshine, but I think I’m looking forward to getting back to my…Read More
Thigs you can do to get healing if you can’t afford a counselor or coach
Hi Friends, I’m heading out to Dallas, Texas to be a part of a women’s ministry training in Logos Bible software. I am so excited to learn how to use this amazing program.

Topic: How do I know someone is truly sorry?
Good morning friends: Thank you for all your responses last week to my question “what keeps you stuck and unchanged”. I’ll talk some more about that next week but today I thought I’d try something different. I’m going to respond by video to the question asked by The Good Wife in last week’s blog responses.
