The Millennial Warrior Shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace   Shod means to “bind under” or “strap on”. I have found this to be my favorite piece of armor. I have been known to lay my head on my pillow and sleep like a baby when all hell is raging around me. This peace truly does defy all understanding. This basically is telling us to choose to live a peaceful existence, and be willing to…..

Forty-two years ago today a seventeen year old unwed mother gave birth to a 8lb 13.5 oz baby boy at 4:43 in the afternoon. She thought she would not survive the experience. Her mother sat beside her bed gently stroking her hand, softly declaring over and over all would be okay. This young lady felt loved, as her family and friends awaited the birth of her son. I still feel that love. I am so grateful. Cheryl Lewis

I’m stepping out! Talk to someone I think we all need to unload the burden of our secretive, shameful behavior. I also feel the recipient of this information should be qualified and trustworthy. The minute we speak to a trustworthy, nonjudgmental, individual concerning our shameful behavior, we are released from shames bondage. When we share our shameful past, we must work towards healing and move on. We must leave this shameful memory in the past. According to Dr. Brene Brown shame…..
