Why People Commit Suicide

Suicide. It’s not a joyful topic to talk about at Christmas time, but it is affecting many people at this time of year. It’s not uncommon for it to take place in the month of December. Suicide is something that has, unfortunately, crossed paths with my life a couple of times. On this very day […]

Can I get a witness?

As a psychology major, I took many personality tests- some for fun and some for school purposes. One after one the tests would tell me that one of my strongest personality traits was something called “conscientiousness.” As a young college student, that was just some big word that I didn’t understand. I would always just […]

Truth Hurts

Long time, no see.  I’ve been slacking on the blog lately. I had a situation tonight that has spurred me to write again, mainly because I need to vent but also because I need a reality check.  Am I crazy?  That is the question.  I ask myself this question often actually because my logic continues to be […]

7 Steps to Overcoming Shame

I went through a life-changing experience 6 years ago when the Lord decided that it was time for me to overcome the shame of my past which was holding me back. Then He used me to free many others from their shame through counseling. If you have a past that most people don’t know about, […]

Is Positivity Ever Negative?

My Prison

You Don’t Know What You Got

I’ve learned SO many lessons from my health crisis experience (Side note: I don’t like the phrase “health crisis experience”. What should I call that time I went through? Taking suggestions!). I find myself driven to share those lessons and teach those lessons so that others may learn without having to experience the pain and […]

The Way You Make Me Feel

“The Way You Make Me Feel”…a song made popular by Michael Jackson in 1987.  I have a feeling that song would never survive in today’s culture.  The New Age psychobabble of today says that no one can MAKE you feel anything.  You should be in control of your emotions.  You choose what to feel or not […]

Outside the Box

A window cleaner is cleaning the windows on the 25th floor of a skyscraper, when he slips and falls. He is not wearing a safety harness and nothing slows his fall, yet he suffered no injuries. Explain.

The Road Less Traveled

Satan knocked the wind out of me tonight.  I spent the past several hours being offered many things that I couldn’t have but desperately wanted.  Then, being teased and mocked for refusing to join in.
