Living Out Our Faith

The New You is Still Possible

The New You is Still Possible

Have you ever noticed how often we make such great plans, but then life gets in the way? We start off determined to lose weight, get fit, overcome our character flaws, take new career risks, invest deeper in relationships, and get organized. But before we make enough strides for our vision to become our normal, we’re hit with reality. We get sick. Something breaks. We run out of steam. Hello, normal. Goodbye, vision. So what should we do when our great big plans fizzle into little failures? Well, it might sound cliché, but it’s at that very moment we need…

Have you de-spiritualized wellness?

Have you de-spiritualized wellness? What I mean is have you focused wholeheartedly toward growing spiritually and serving others, especially in a ministry context, while dismissing the care of your physical body? Have you resigned yourself to being as you are when it comes to your health, never expecting to change your habits nor your weight, your medical condition nor your lifestyle?

In This Skin, Giving God the Glory

What does it look like to live “in this skin” for God’s glory? For each of us, it will take on a different experience and expression.

How do you know if you’re truly living in the skin you’re in without bitterness and discontentment, lacking in purpose and direction?   Join me on the In This Skin podcast hosted by Jennie G.

Becoming a Faithful, Sensible Servant

Becoming a Faithful, Sensible Servant

I can always tell how I resonate with a chapter of Scripture based on how much I underline and highlight it in my Bible. Let’s just say, this particular chapter is looking neglected. Matthew 24 should technically be one of my favorites because it talks all about the future, and I tend to be the kind of gal that things long term. But the problem is this chapter isn’t about giving us a long-term plan but rather a sobering perspective about the journey to eternity. Jesus begins His teaching in this chapter with a reminder of the tension we’re living…

Understanding Your Personality and Making the Most of the Enneagram

Why We Need the Word of God More than the Enneagram

This post was originally published on February 6, 2019, with my full support of the Enneagram. However, in light of additional study and conviction, I no longer advocate for use of the Enneagram. The content below has been revised to explain my position.   Have you wondered what all the hype is about the Enneagram? Maybe you first heard of the nine-type (times infinity) personality assessment made popular by Ian Cron’s book, The Road Back to You.  Or maybe you’re like me and heard about the Enneagram years ago. Back then, I dismissed it as some voodoo pop psychology. It might be fair…
