Busyness is the enemy of Godly intuition. In the middle of working on day 17 of the 21 Day Brain Detox this morning (focusing on Godly intuition) while feeling guilty that I was not using the time to get more done, I heard this statement. It was not spoken audibly but it was definitely loud and clear. Busyness is the enemy of Godly intuition!
On the surface this may seem like bad news to those of us who are on the front lines and in the trenches doing whatever we can…Continue

I have a confession to make. Even though I know in my heart that God is in control and He is not worried, I still struggle with worry. "But wait," you say, "I thought this was supposed to be about good news." It is. But sometimes you have to endure the bad in order to completely appreciate and embrace the good and the sweet victory that can emerge from great struggles. So hang in there with me because there actually is good news.
The bad news is as I got older I started to worry…Continue
"Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God's peace which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)
One memory I will never forget as a young child is the voice of my dad, reassuring me whenever I was worried or afraid. On such occasions he would always say, "Don't worry unless…Continue
Christmas day has come and gone and I must say, it did not exactly turn out as I had imagined it. But looking back on Christmases past, I have to honestly admit, they never really do. In fact, I am beginning to believe that the picture perfect “Courier and Ives/ Better Homes…Continue
"We are human but we don't wage war as humans do. We use God's mighty weapons, not worldly weapons to knock down strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ." 2 Corinthians 10:3-5.…Continue

This week was spring break at the college where I am employed part time, and I had it all planned out. While many of my colleagues were planning beach trips and other spring break outings, my plan was to spend the whole week doing the work I love so much, practicing the laying on of hands and changing lives through…Continue

Here is what I shared in a newsletter to my patients this week.
Early on in chiropractic practice, I began to notice that although each patient was different, they tended to fall into two broad categories: Those who were content just to survive, and those who thrived. The survivors tended to be passive in doctor patient relationships. They were willing to follow my recommendations to a point, but for the most part they just wanted me to "fix" them so life could go on as usual.…Continue
In addition to pain that motivates change, there is also the pain that comes with change itself. When I was pregnant with my son, I was taught in my Bradley child birth class, that there were 3 stages of labor. The early phase of stage one labor can be a rather scary but exciting time. You are feeling the first few contractions and as the contractions become stronger and closer together the realization hits that soon you will welcome your much awaited child into the world. Since…Continue

A story is told about a man who found a butterfly cocoon. One day he noticed a small opening in the cocoon. From the opening he watched as the butterfly struggled to free itself from the cocoon. This went on for several hours until it appeared as if the butterfly had given up. Moved, with compassion, the man decided to help the butterfly. Using a pair of scissors he cut open the rest of the cocoon freeing the butterfly. The creature that emerged had a swollen body and shriveled…Continue
My husband and I had a rather interesting discussion as we lay in bed early Saturday morning. The topic of discussion was the amazing human body, from the miracle of conception to the body's ability to heal itself. Although I don't remember how we even got started on this subject I took the opportunity to share with him some of things I had been learning in the class I am taking. The topic was pain and the function of pain in the body which is a subject that is quite fascinating to…Continue

Ever have one of those frustrating experiences when you wake up hours before your alarm is set to go off and absolutely cannot go back to sleep? Well today, was one of those mornings for me. Waking up 2-3 hours early is not quite as frustrating anymore since I have learned to relax myself enough to go back to sleep by practicing Biblical meditation. Waking up 30 minutes to an hour early on the other hand, is more frustrating to me. For one thing, I teach part time, practice…Continue

One of the things that has always puzzled me when working with patients over the years is how so many of them having been diagnosed with such things as hypertension, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes etc. were so resistant to making lifestyle changes that would improve their health and quality of life. Even after having had strokes and heart attacks and being sternly warned by their doctors many continued to eat unhealthy foods, smoke, and carry extra pounds. If lifestyle changes were…Continue
I may have gotten in over my head with this blog. In tackling this subject I am well aware that I am taking on something that is much bigger than myself. In a way it scares and overwhelms me... and yet in some strange way it excites and invigorates me. The subject of abundant living and disease prevention through healthy lifestyle choices is a passion of mine and has been for a long time. By profession I am a Doctor of Chiropractic and so I deal with natural health every day;…Continue
