Get Out of Your Pain

It is so easy to get trapped in what is familiar, even if that familiar thing is pain. The pain that brought us here is a part of us and we have to live with it but we don't have to live in it. We need to be healing. The first step is to be willing to leave the pain behind.

Inner Integrity

3/17/2019
More
Starting the Dialogue Part 3 We think about integrity and honesty as how we act towards and around other people. Acting with honesty and integrity towards others is something we generally strive to do, but what about with ourselves? Can we really say we've been honest with ourselves or do we live in a constant state of denial?

Identification Please

More
Starting the Dialogue: Part 2 It's about time we talked about who we are as individuals, not just by the name on our license or the job that we have, but who we are mentally, emotionally, and spiritually now. Not who we used to be, but who we currently are.

Ground Rules

3/4/2019
More
Starting the Dialogue: Part 1 As far as I can tell, every single parent's story has pain in it. Mine certainly does. Out of respect for that, I want to establish some ground rules that we can all (hopefully) agree on. This is to be a place where our pain can be addressed and brought to God for healing, not a place of judgment. Let's come together and start the healing process today. Music by @jameswbellmusic
