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…

By Leslie Vernick | August 22, 2018 |

Morning friends, So good to be home. I love sleeping on my own pillow and in my own bed. Showering in my own shower. Eating my regular food.

Aly’s Story [Guest Blog]

By Leslie Vernick | July 25, 2018 |

Morning friends, I’m sitting again on the deck of the ship in the South of France.  I’ve never been here before but it is just beautiful.

Instead of responding individually, I thought I’d answer this question in…
