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…

Forgiving Doesn’t Erase Consequences

By Leslie Vernick | January 26, 2022 |

Morning friend,  We’ve had quite a robust and controversial discussion on forgiveness on my FB page. Is forgiveness Biblically required when someone isn’t sorry? Does God command it even if someone isn’t repentant? Do we have to clean up our sin before God forgives us?  If we don’t forgive, is our spiritual life impacted? And is God’s forgiveness of us…

He Won’t Let The Affair Go.

By Leslie Vernick | July 7, 2021 |

Morning friend, I’m back at our little cabin at Pinetop, AZ. The weather has been wonderful. Lots of rain, which we desperately need. The temperatures are cool and my five-mile daily walk is a joy. I was joking with my husband that I kind of like the smallness of our space. It’s easier to put things away because leaving them…

By Leslie Vernick | June 23, 2021 |

Morning friend, Thanks for your prayers for my parents. They are doing a little better and able to manage somewhat better. It’s hard watching those you love struggle and be in pain.

Getting Healthy After Divorce

By Leslie Vernick | April 7, 2021 |

Morning friends, Oswald Chambers tells us, “The great enemy of the life of faith is the good that is not good enough.” How about you? Do good things clutter out the best things in your life? Sometimes busyness masquerades as godliness. Don’t let it fool you. Busyness is just busyness. Godliness takes time to slow yourself down, pay attention, and…

Morning friends, How many of you set a New Years Resolution for 2021? Maybe to get into shape or lose weight? Those seem to be the #1 goals most people set.
