What's Good About Being Single? How You Live!

Being single allows us to live independently and with the ability to take a few chances. But this does not mean we should live selfishly. When all is said and done, our identity will not be found in whom we knew or what we did, but in how we lived.

Coaching Corner: Watch Your Language

The quieter confessions we reserve for the bathroom mirror or the privacy of the car on our daily commutes are powerful. They flow out of us in raw form, in those unedited moments when our hearts are closest to the surface.

Trusting in God's Greater Plans for You

We fall short of reaching God’s potential for ourselves when we do not take advantage of the opportunities that God puts in front of us. When we do not believe in ourselves and the gifts He has given us. And when we fail to see how we fit into God’s plan.

Are You Really Ready for Love? See Your Mate Realistically

The Men in Christ's Life: Zacchaeus

Zacchaeus, was another person who had a bunch of junk in his life. The town did not like him for the kind of work he did. But like myself, I believe he had one foot in the world and one foot in Christ. And he needed one step (up a tree) to cross the line where he, too, would know his purpose.

Are You Really Ready for Love? Developing the Capacity

We each must examine ourselves to be sure we are ready to love. We must let go of infantile attachment that narrows and expects too much and move to adult, mature attachment that enlarges us and the other. We must be ready to risk having our hearts broken again for love.

A Longing Like Starvation

The God who loves me is working all things together for good. So when this loneliness feels like death, aches like starvation, I confess that I am alive and well fed. Time is not my enemy and waiting is not punishment.
