Fear of Missing Out…

People will make emotional decisions when they feel like they might miss out on something. I encourage you to use wisdom and discernment when faced with big decisions. Pray about them, and listen for the voice of our Creator to guide you…

Speaking of Kindness…

The tongue is a laser sharp instrument. It can heal or it can hurt. Your choice, but I encourage you to return kind words to others, not stinging rebukes. Both of you will benefit…

Guarded…

On social media, we see pictures and posts of perfect lives. This is great! We should celebrate happy moments. Yet, think of how much compassion we would see from others if we sometimes showed how hellish life can be. Something worth considering…

Kindness Matters…

Every person you encounter has something troubling them. You probably will not see it on the surface level, but that doesn’t make it less real. Slow down and show kindness to everyone, even the people who don’t deserve it. They need kindness shown to them the most, and you will benefit as well…

Recognize our differences, even within our own families. Embrace the differences and unify. We are better together…

Help!

Why is it so hard to ask for help? Arrogance and pride keep us from doing so. When little children ask for help we are quick to respond. The children have no ego invested, they simply want to accomplish something. Let’s let go of our false pride and collaborate when necessary…

Tension…

What comes to mind when you hear the word “tension?” Stress and strain? Tension isn’t all bad. It takes tension to build muscle and for certain kinds of work. But if you are feeling tense, take a moment to breathe and listen to your soft, encouraging inner voice. Tension will lose its power…
