Should I Apologize to Someone with a Victim Mentality?
Hello Friends! It’s Coach Susan taking the opportunity to write the blog for Leslie Vernick and & Co. this week. Here in Michigan, I am finally coming out of what feels like a long winter.

Am I Afraid of Change, Insecure or Just Plain Wishy Washy?
Hello my friends, 2023 is here… How’s it going? Perhaps you, like me, could use a little pep talk? Okay, Here we go. You are stronger than you think.

My Husband Doesn’t Speak To Me. Do I Have To Have Sex?
Morning friends, Went for another hike last weekend with friends. This time, someone knew where we were going and so all I had to do was follow. What a great illustration for us and Jesus.

He Says He’s Trying To Build Trust, But I Don’t Trust Him
Morning friends, I hope you had a relaxing and fun Labor Day weekend. The weather was beautiful here in the White Mountains and I probably walked close to 20 miles over the 3-day weekend.

It’s just like having a baby except you can put it in…Read More
Sexual Abuse In Marriage, Part 2 [Guest Post]
Morning friends, I just returned from our family vacation from Hawaii. We cruised all of the islands. My favorites were Maui and Kauai. We took a bicycle ride down the mountain in Maui which was quite fun and saw some beautiful beaches and attended a Luau.

How Do I Stop Repeating The Same Cycle
Morning friends, I’m back from my little cabin in the woods where it was cool and quiet and now in my hot but thankfully air-conditioned home in the Phoenix area. I will miss it there. It’s just a tiny cabin but there was something quite peaceful about being there. Next summer I hope to spend a few months up…Read More
My Mother Has Crossed The Line, But Did I Overreact?
Morning friends, I have to tell you all again how much I appreciate the love, support, and care that you give to one another. I try to read every response even though I don’t always have time to personally comment. You all make me proud. I love to see how you take what Satan would love to crush you with,…Read More
