Most Valuable Opinion Teaching

Most Valuable Opinion

Why was it so easy for me to change how I saw myself based on what others said about me? Why did I allow the opinions of others to change my view of myself? What was wrong with loving and accepting me for me? I have always been a naturally petite person. But growing up as a little girl, I…

Everything Dances Teaching

Dance Like No One Is Watching!

Health Coaching tip: Dancing literally throws stress off you. Everything dances, but not everyone does….

Conflict Resolution

Our Source for Peace – Part II

Uncommon Means – Part 3

If parts 1 and 2 were largely about a couple things of what we should do as Christians to live a life that is worthwhile, then, part 3 will be about one of the attitudes or postures we should live by.

Uncommon Means – Part 1

Our Ways of Doing vs. God's Way of Doing There seems to be many patterns of thought or thinking that we hold on to that we don't even know exist until someone calls them to our attention. Have you ever heard the idea of God's Kingdom being as the Upside-Down Kingdom? In, what we would normally think of a kingdom, we have…
