The Journey of the Warrior

I do not believe everything happens for a reason. But, I do believe we can find reason in every happening. I am currently looking for a job again. This will be approximately the 5th time since 2011 that one or both of us will be without a full time job. There have been many reasons for […]

Going All In

The best way to get a new wardrobe is to burn all of your clothes.   I remember the first time I heard that. It was several years ago at a PSI Leadership Training Course I was taking. It has stuck with me for all this time. And it really is so true, the best way […]

The Week After Election

So, I’m not sure if you heard, but there was an election. It was a very powerful election, a very passionate one, and for many people a very painful and terrifying election. I do not think I have ever been so emotionally invested in an election, in my life. Some people are tremendously afraid or […]

How To Handle The Josh Duggar Ashley Madison Scandal

Another Josh Duggar scandal emerged. He was discovered to be one of the names of the Ashley Madison customers. He has since released the following statement: I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this […]

Lessons In Love

Photo Credit I’m taking a class in school right now called “Common Faith and the Christian Good.” Because it’s required the class is made up of a hodgepodge of students with a variety of different backgrounds and beliefs. That variety actually makes class really fun (*nerd alert*), since we get to hear from a variety of […]

So… ‘Cleavage Wars’ are a Thing Now…

I’m possibly late on this bandwagon, but… some of these articles I’ve been reading lately are SO ludicrous that I really need to post about it. Apparently, #ChristianCleavage and the #CleavageWars were trending on twitter recently. To summarize, the articles and posts are basically begging women to button up and stop causing their brothers to […]

Being Okay with Feeling Misunderstood

  The worst feeling in the world is feeling like you’ve been rejected, misunderstood, or not heard. It makes me feel like my insides are screaming and no one is listening. I feel like an angsty teenager again and the frustration can be enough to want to pull my hair out. Most of my growing up […]

My Personal Mantra

Another exercise for the Courageous Confidence Club that I’m currently doing with Chalene Johnson. It was included in the Smart Success Academy. This is similar to the Definition of Success and Key Priority Statement exercises I did. This is definitely helping to keep things into perspective. My Mantra I will trust my heart and know that God […]

The Power of Words

Words are beyond powerful. Words can cause an army of destruction, or start a movement of peace. Hitler used words. Gandhi used words. Martin Luther King Jr. used words.   We don’t often think about the words that we say. Especially with social media becoming what it has, being able to hide behind a screen and type […]

Love Your Neighbor As Yourself… And Body Shaming

Regardless of what your belief structure is, I’m almost positive you have heard the phrase “Love your neighbor as yourself.” This is a phrase taken out of the Bible and can be found here: Mark 12:30–31 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind […]
