National Recovery Month

On the (Autumn) road to recovery. September has less than a week left but I can’t let it go by without sharing something recovery related because after all, September is National Recovery Month in the U.S. For this year’s recognition, I thought I’d share one of my favorite, “git right down to the nuts &… Continue reading National Recovery Month

Where Were You?

8:46 a.m. September 11, 2001. Twenty years ago. I remember like it was yesterday. Where were you when airplanes were turned into flying bombs over the United States? I have a friend that was in New York City. I didn't lose anyone close to me, but proximity (geographically) wise, I wasn't that far away. I… Continue reading Where Were You?

Value all. Can our society please get back to respectful disagreement and valuing each other no matter what we believe? Community is not about living… Continue reading We are designed for community.

But What Does God Say?

With so many competing voices all around us - and even inside of us - it’s easy to fall victim to thoughts that are just not true. The thoughts may be preceded by feelings that may be strong, but do they line up as facts?For the Christian, the Bible is truth; the Bible being the… Continue reading But What Does God Say?


Prayer Doesn’t Work?

Prayer works - I know this for many reasons but maybe most importantly because it changes things; it changes the person who prays. There is healing to be found when we pray.  Prayer, to me, is a conversation with the Creator of the universe. The One who knows it all, sees it all and holds… Continue reading Prayer Doesn’t Work?
