To all of my readers, I recently spent some time assisting my  mother-n-law with her daily needs, due to a fractured pelvis. We spent countless hours sitting on her swing discussing her parents, her life as a girl,  and special moments raising her children. Our evenings were  filled with ritualistic activities such as closing all of the blinds, turning on all of the outdoor lights, night lights and removing items close to the night lights to prevent a fire. Bath time was particularly interesting due…..

The Millennial Warrior The Armor of God   I gird my waist with the spirit of truth (I accept your word as truth, I reject anything that does not line up with what you say on the subject) I put on the breastplate of righteousness (I ask that you help me make the correct decisions daily to remain righteousness before you) I shod my feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace (I will walk in peace and be…..

The Millennial Warrior The Weapons of Warfare   I am in awe of this generation. They are fearless, technical, creative, and curious. They are light-years ahead of where I was at their age. The Millennials have had access to the answer to any question, immediately, at their fingertips, 24-7. I grew up in a generation who had to go to the library when curious about a subject matter. Some individuals were lucky enough to own a set of Britannica encyclopedias,…..

The Millennial Warrior Preface   I recently visited with a group of nurses I worked with for many years and was introduced to the name “Millennial” used to describe our current generation Y. I was aware of the obvious differences in the current generation and mine, but had no idea a name had been assigned with a set of attributes and flaws. I must admit I felt as if I had climbed out from under a rock, but I also…..

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

Spiritual Revolution Faith of a child Three   The faith of a child is not skeptical, fearful or full of doubt. I think our faith is limited, when we are consumed with emotions of fear and doubt due to our current circumstances. The definition of faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen. I define faith with my salvation experience. When I embraced salvation, I was hoping for a transformation. What I experienced…..

Empowering Children Empowering a young person is the act of placing tools in a child’s hands, enabling him to soar above the adversity and confusion swirling around him in our current society. Empowerment gives a young person the confidence and self-assurance needed for survival. When a person is sure of who they are, they are not likely to be thrown to and fro by the influence of others. Most individuals are influenced by others when: 1. They do not have…..

I’m stepping out! A new creation! We discussed in past post how an individual may participate in destructive behavior to lessen the pain of a traumatic life changing event in one’s life. I refer to this life changing event as an assault. This behavior may become habitual and may be responsible for the individual disengaging from a healthy lifestyle. The behavior may become so offensive to an individuals loved ones, they eventually alienate the individual from their lives. This offensive…..

I’m stepping out! Join a support group My dear mother use to say, “Tell me who your friends are, and I will tell you who you are.” While I accept the fact that I am not a mirror image of my friends, I feel we share a common belief system. Point being, like attracts like. If you are accustomed to exhibiting bad behavior on a regular basis, you will attract, and gravitate towards the bottom feeders. If you wish to change…..

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…..
