Svengali wears a cowboy hat 2/22

Something happens on the inside when you know you're walking on shaky ground but don't necessarily have to be. It's that lump in your throat and the heat that surfaces on your chest when you lie to yourself and proceed in a relationship that is screaming "caution". Nothing about the guy is transparent or quantifiable …

Fitness model exercises wholeness steps

To walk out a life of wholeness, one would first have to know what one wants out of life.  Some people don't want to know why they suffer because they are afraid of uncovering something big that would stir up even more chaos.  I have never been such a person, usually I use chaos as …

Hey Jealousy

It seems there are no shortages of mean people on this earth.  I always say mean people have been treated badly by somebody else before you came along, so don't take it personally. However, that is easier said than done, especially when that mean someone is in a position of authority or they have some …

Social media made me do it

I think people give social media too much credit for determining #gender and #eating habits because the #truth of the matter is that confusion concerning them always begins in the home. If there is no #allowance for #expression than a child turns inward. If there is sexual abuse, #identity is breeched and always a precursor …

Command the Miracle

When unbelief stifles expectation, the only way to bring forth the miraculous, is to command it. This testimony of an El Salvador missions trip shares the breaking out of healing after a man who had a humped back, straighten, and he started walking, running actually. The place was lit with expectancy and our youth group …

The Covering

The idea to create a quick read from the parent to a child evolved after three years of working with teens through IFS Therapy, who were quieted through control, religion or other persuasions from a role model. In hopes that a light would turn-on inside the adult, I longed to bring illumination to teaching and …

Healing the Internal Chronic Parts

I left the Internal medicine practice in tears and didn't realize someone in the parking lot could hear me crying until she called out to ask if I was okay. A woman of sweet countenance approached me and just hugged me as I held my paperwork form the doc's office close to my chest and …

Dear Younger me

Dear Younger Me, As I address those little eyes which have cried and cried and cried, my right hand covers my heart for connection to your compassionate expression.  Made to believe that your sensitivity was a weakness, that your hypervigilance was unnecessary, or that your voice screeched in the heads of those around you; you …

Why a village?

The statement "It takes a village", has hardly been spoken from any role-models that are trustworthy, they may have political platforms and promote initiatives that start off strong, but integrity isn't something found behind the slogans from opportunists who spend other people's money on half-witted bail outs.  I'm sure in the beginning, many efforts to …
