What is your experience around sex/sexuality? It is such a taboo topic. A charged topic. Governments and religions have attempted to control it in civilized nations for thousands of years. People can feel shame for either lots or little experience. People can be shamed for either lots or little interest. If you believe the Bible … Continue reading The Vulnerability of Sexuality
Something I’ve noticed that Christians often misunderstand about God’s heart as portrayed in the bible is the concept of oneness verses separateness from God, where if one is great, the other can’t be. I believe Christian’s overemphasize our separateness from God/Source/Creator. I realize this is usually in an attempt to not “steal glory from God” … Continue reading Don’t Shrink

I've been pondering life today. It is strange how much can change, how one can become so different that they look at their own dreams as foreign. I think it is because Christmas is happening in a couple days and it feels so distant to me. I used to get excited for holidays, especially Christmas. … Continue reading Pondering Change
The heart has its reasons which reason knows not. This is such a powerful statement, and one that I've been learning about intensely for the last year and a half. I have learned that the heart is 60 times more electrically powerful than the mind, and 5,000 times more magnetically powerful than the mind. The … Continue reading Heart Matters
Perhaps you thought that girls were the only ones smitten by fairy tales as they grew up. But I would be at least one exception to that.

It broke my heart to think that anyone could … Continue reading A Prince for Cinderella
Don't dim your light out of consideration for those who have chosen not to shine. Why do we do this? It's so strange, but I have seen this pattern in my own life.
