Hi Sweet Friends, Happy New Year. I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I did but as always, I ate too much and now find myself 4 pounds heavier then I was at Thanksgiving and I’m not happy! I’m back to no bread or pasta so I can get those pounds off before it becomes worse. I couldn’t resist posting…

Good Afternoon Friends, I hope it is a good day for you this post Christmas Monday. Sometimes it can feel a little blah after all the stress of getting ready for the big day.

Good morning friends! Well can you believe that in two short weeks Christmas 2010 will be history? It sort of snuck up on us this year didn’t it? At least that’s how it feels in my house.

How can my husband prove he’s changed? Our daughter hates him. I feel caught in the middle.

By Leslie Vernick | November 29, 2010 |

Good Monday Everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, thanking those you know and love for being “them”. I don’t think we do that enough. We’re quick to criticize, slow to encourage and affirm. We may think good thoughts, but often forget to actually say them. Today’s challenge: Bless someone with the gift of your encouraging words. You…

My boyfriend flirts with other women and it makes me insecure. Should I give him another chance?

By Leslie Vernick | November 22, 2010 |

Good morning beautiful friends. Last week I never got to post a question or response. Instead, I got stuck at O’Hare airport in Chicago on Sunday. My plane had mechanical problems and thus the long layover in Chicago while I waited for my connecting flight home to Allentown. I’m thankful I got home that evening, even though it was very…

Good Monday! I love, love women’s retreats. It blesses me so much to see the lights go on and the tears begin to flow as God powerfully renews a mind, touches a heart, and restores a soul. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your prayers. For although I’ve been physically exhausted, I am emotionally and spiritually…
