How to Keep Current Events from Creating Division

How to Keep Current Events from Creating Division

The world is definitely busy debating. Say the word “politics” and people have an instant reaction. There are good people on all sides of several current issues and topics. Yet the simple act of logging on to our social media accounts can raise blood pressure and induce anxiety. People want to be heard. They’re passionate. Some are scared. Some are hurting. Others are angry. And some, when they get into heated discussions, get downright mean. With all of these debates raging, some of us have grown weary. Many have started asking people to stop discussing politics. They’re sick of it.…

How am I supposed to act . . . ? A Follow-Up Response

A Note from Elisa Pulliam Founder of More to Be  As a writing team at More to Be, we’re committed to tackling the tough topics we face as women seeking to live a Christ-centered life. Our writing process is bathed in prayer, as we seek the Lord for the content He wants us to share with you. We are also very aware that sometimes our thoughts may open up another topic for discussion. That is exactly what happened with Jennifer Dyer’s post, “How am I supposed to act toward people who are different from me?” While her intent was never to…

How am I supposed to act toward people who are different from me?

We live in a rapidly communicating world. Even in the last three decades we’ve gone from the wonder of cordless phones to having entire computer and communication systems that fit in the palm of our hands. The information streaming into our minds every second is staggering. Some of it is wonderful, a true gift, but in other ways, it’s not so good. Because of this, as a Christian today, I feel like I’m faced with harder questions than my grandmother faced fifty years ago. After all, she didn’t have her entire life, including her mistakes, chronicled for the world to see.…

With all the self-help options available, why do we need Jesus to fix us?

For the last several years, I experienced chronic pain deep inside my abdomen. Some days it was a dull, soft ache, but other days I felt sharp stabs of burning pain. Since I’m a bit stubborn, I decided I could diagnose and treat the problem myself. I bought supplements. I drank special detox teas. I changed my diet. I used essential oils, over-the-counter treatments, and a host of other remedies in an effort to fix the problem. But the pain remained. Finally, finally, I made an appointment to see the doctor. After a short round of tests, she said, “Oh!…

Rethinking Our Soul Selfies

Rethinking our Soul Selfies

I recently read a post about something author, editor, and speaker Jeff Gerke called “soul selfies.” He says a soul selfie is, “the deepest, most firmly believed snapshot of who we really, truly are in our most essential self.” Have you ever thought about your soul selfie? How do you define yourself deep down? Not the self you want people to see, not the person you present to the world, but the self you fear everyone will discover? We all struggle with this, and it might be different for each walk of life. Sometimes, though, these are labels we carry…
