You are more than your parts

Wow, when your emotions take a tumbling through life, it is powerful to learn how IFS Therapy can empower one to heal the past. Praying that I can couple Christianity and counseling through this model in a way that heals others who have been wounded from church practices. So much of “bad behavior” has been …

Same spirits when serving food

I have hundreds of comedic clips as a server in restaurant life.  It ain't good, but it sure as hell becomes therapeutic when I make fun of the situations that occur when handling food.  I can't make this stuff up, people really do respond the same way in this industry because of spirits. https://youtu.be/6hGuhb4jJS8

To stop the tanning tracks

There are moments we have that stop us in our tracks, tell us to slow down and soak up the intrigue of belief in something bigger than us.  This past week, such a moment occurred in my life through the interaction with a business that I was about to give up on.  I'm pretty loyal and …

Footwashing for Scarlet A

I was that chic who was deemed sinful because of my shady past and many women in the church hung onto their husbands when I walked into the room. However, as Daddy God would have it, I was the perfect candidate for a foot washing.  Seems like the timing of re-visiting past memories on Easter …
