Wow is all I can say! Amy and I were chatting about people in our lives that are bipolar the other day on her post Left, Right, Left, Right. It was such a touching post that I felt the courage to share...well...a secret. So I shared with Amy that I had been married before and… Continue reading A Night Of Healing
One thing my son, Brandon, loves watching is a potter at his/her wheel. He will stay there looking so intently at every water drop applied, the hand movement of the potter, the delicate procedure of applying a utensil to the clay and the speed of the wheel to ensure that the clay does not go… Continue reading The Potter’s Hand
There was once this young man that had seen things he should not have for his age. Living in a trailer park growing up, this young man, child I should say, saw older kids at the playground taking off their clothes and doing things to each other. It made him feel uncomfortable so he would… Continue reading The Playground
Here in lies a very big truth. No matter what you struggle with, you can not heal if you refuse to confront the core issue. True freedom comes with surrendering everything. If you are not willing to allow God into that big closet that houses all those hurts you've been hanging on to, you will… Continue reading You Can’t Heal What You Refuse To Confront
