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 Breastplate of Righteousness   The Roman solders use to put on breastplates made of Iron, copper or chain mail to protect their vital organs, predominately their heart and lungs. The same is true for us, the breastplate of righteousness protects our heart and soul from the fiery darts of the enemy. These fiery darts are thoughts and imaginations that produce bad feelings about yourself or others. Thoughts such as fear, shame, unworthiness, unforgiveness, rejection, bitterness, smoldering…..

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…..

A spiritual Revolution See no evil, hear no evil & speak no evil Ten   We are inundated with negative information daily. When we hear negative information on a regular basis we are bruising our spiritual man. Most information is presented to inform, entertain, instruct or persuade the audience. I feel we need less entertaining and persuading, and more informative and inspirational information. I’m not saying we should get rid of our televisions or stop watching the news. I feel…..

A spiritual Revolution Be Curious Six     Curiosity is the gateway to knowledge. Children are curious, creative individuals. A child will thrust himself into an activity out of curiosity, without reservation. Young children haven’t a clue they may be incapable of accomplishing a task due to their size, age or mental aptitude. They are not overwhelmed with fear and doubt. The possibilities are endless. They don’t feel they should be good at a task to enjoy it, either. An…..

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! Shhhh I  feel its important not to recount our past behavior for the rest of our lives. We need to share our shameful behavior from our past with a qualified, trustworthy individual, heal and move on. I know this is contrary to most belief systems. The reason I feel we must not recount our past behavior for the rest of our lives is, we are identifying with the broken individual of our past. If we identify with the broken individual…..

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…..
