What to Do When Faith and Feelings Collide

Why are we able to take some challenges in stride and others level us? I’m not sure, but I know I’m more likely to stumble when emotions connected to past wounds are unleashed. Of course, my spiritual enemy is right there to magnify any offense.

I consider myself to be pretty resilient. But recently something small, very small, caused me to stumble. Actually, it was two small things on top of each…

Trump’s new budget to reshape the education system in the US

The education system in the US is a one-way ticket to the hamster wheel of loans. We get into the system thinking it is our way of a more prosperous life. Little do we know the loans that make college and university possible for us, take away our freedom of choice. Once we graduate, we have to start worrying about repaying the education loans rather than thinking about shaping our lives the way we want. Forget Euro trips and countryside treks; the education loans will always be there to…

Health: It’s Always Time for Spring Cleaning

Typically we begin spring cleaning our homes in March or April, before Easter and Passover. The weather is beginning to be nice and we can at least occasionally open the windows and let the fresh, clean spring air in as we scrub and polish our homes.

As much as I dislike housecleaning (and anyone who knows me…

Been doing it too long to change now?

Have you ever said,  “I’ve been doing it this way too long to change”?

I recently decided to learn a new sport:  pickle ball.  I attended my first impromptu lesson at a pickle ball free play court last week.  A visiting player and pickle ball instructor showed me the basics…

Want a Little Business A`La Carte?

One of my friends is a bit compulsive about any food presented to her.She often prefers any liquid foods to be a’la carte. Whether a gravy, sauce or type of condiment, she simply enjoys having those items on the side rather than on top or mixed in with her meal.

Many people prefer to start or even keep a business that way.

They are perhaps employed full or part-time as an employee and want to start a business but…

Be Proactive, Not Reactive

Do you ever get a sense of discontentment in your life?  You know there is something that isn’t quite what you want it to be, but you just can’t place your finger on it?  Generally I find that when that happens to me, it’s the universe gently nudging me on towards a change.  Now changes are never easy, and they can sometimes involve a lot of work to make it a positive experience.  But change is also one of the only things we can guarantee will always happen in life, regardless of if we want…

How Faith Helps You Make Better Decisions

How do we live and make decisions that please God? How can we be sure we don’t miss His plan for our lives?

Hebrews says, “My righteous ones shall live by faith” (Heb. 10:38 NLT).

Faith pleases God and directs the steps of those who honor Him. Since faith puts us in the center of God’s will and garners His smile, let’s examine how faith looks.

To live by faith is to live with…

Nutrition: Read This if You Still Drink Coke

Sodas like Coke are definitely not healthy. They’re loaded with high fructose corn syrup which is an especially strong driver of obesity, heart disease and diabetes. It is an especially dangerous sweetener because unlike glucose and other forms of sugar, it is the only one directly metabolized by the liver and which is almost immediately converted to fat.

Add to that it has phosphoric acid (all sodas do) which breaks down bone tissue! And if you were thinking drinking sugar-free Coke…

Why Change Is Hard and Excuses Are Easy

"You don't really want to change!" I've made that statement a million times…in my mind. It is my natural response to people who like to list all of the reasons they can't do something different. Excuses are more plentiful than we realize.

The disgruntled employees who chronically complain about their jobs.

The clients who bemoan lackluster business…

Shalom, Shalom—How Israel Impacted Me

Larry and I recently returned from a 10-day tour of Israel with one of our favorite Bible teachers Ken Boa. Larry described our first trip to Israel as drinking out of a fire hydrant. In other words, we sped through the paths Jesus strolled!

The day we walked the Via Dolorosa (“Way of Grief” in Latin) an unexpected sorrow touched me not…
