What it Actually Means When We Give

I remember crying when I first read the book, The Giving Tree. In Shel Silverstein’s classic way, this story unfolded with such fluid unravelling of child-like spirit. Been awhile since you read it?

Moments of Decision

Yes, I have OFTEN wanted to be guided by divine intervention. I just didn’t want it to come from God!

Walking Away

Recently I read a line out of Kathy Reiche’s book, 206 Bones: Sometimes we walk out on our lives. I read it out of context, so I can only guess at what she meant since I don’t know the details. Yet I found it a profound statement. Enough to reflect on and put out there. .. read more

Difficult Conversations

Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, some conversations are just difficult to have. Although an introvert may find this to be the case more often than his/her assertive counterpart, the truth is, sometimes any of us could be at a loss for words.
