Stress in the World of an Enneagram 9

Hello, My name is Vicki and I am a 9. :) This sounds funny, but if you are familiar with the Enneagram, you know just what I mean. The thing is, though, they say 9s are sloths. Hmm...not sure I like that. Don’t get me wrong - sloths are super cute. In fact, I have had the privilege of petting…

It wasn’t exactly like we were starving…

It wasn’t exactly like we were starving, but I guess if you were a teen-aged boy you may have thought so!

Is This All There Is?

“Is this all there is?”  I often hear this question from women who are pausing from their busy lives to look up for a second.

Valued for our ideas, our contributions, our passions, and most of all, valued for just being the person we are now, at this very minute.  I have traveled a large portion of…

Open short term mission trips that you can jump on today

How many of us have been on a mission trip or have been involved in sending another person? Do you remember those stories? Stories of beautiful places and cultures. Accounts of the most precious people worshiping as you had never seen before. What about the stories of personal change? Stepping out of one's comfort zone and speaking in front of a crowd. Praying with a complete stranger with…
