Miracles from Heaven with Jennifer Garner

   My schedule doesn’t really allow me to see many movies unless I am on assignment. That’s the truth. Over the course of the year I manage to see the films on my “to view” list.  So I’m excited that “Miracles from Heaven” is coming out tomorrow on DVD. As a Christian Lifestyle Personality, I encourage Christians […]

Mirror, Mirror Build My Self-Esteem

The world has gone self-esteem, positive affirmation crazy. The self-help industry is big business. There are some gurus and some poo-poos out there.   If you search Amazon.com books for “self-esteem” you find 155,148 books on the subject.  Barnes & Noble shows 1780 books with “Self-Esteem” in the title. Everybody is talking about building a positive self-image […]

The Four Secrets of Pain

    The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. – Psalm 34:18 People try their best to avoid pain in life because pain is not pleasant. It is also not avoidable. If you have lived for any amount of time beyond the first few years of your life, you […]

Book Review: Stand Your Ground (Victoria Christopher Murray)

    A black teenage boy is dead. A white man shot him. Was he standing his ground or was it murder? It’s been a couple of days since I finished “Stand Your Ground” by Victoria Christopher Murray and the story of these two women, Janice and Meredith, is still a visceral element of my existence. […]

Is That True?

Our reality is shaped by our perspective. Our perspective is formed by who we are and what  we have experienced. One of the most powerful questions used in personal coaching is simply this: “Is that true?” Most of what we believe is not “true” but merely a version of reality that we’ve accepted based on […]

Book Review: The Four Loves (CS Lewis)

  The Four Loves by CS Lewis is an exploration of the nature of love. The author, one of my favorites, CS Lewis, breaks down love into four categories: affection, friendship, eros, and charity.  He examines the joys, pains and complexities of each. Lewis begins the book by using an overarching designation among loves as “need love” […]

7 Steps to Shine TYC

There is a difference between being “cracked” and broken. A cracked vase can still hold a candle and shine light. A vase that is broken needs to be either fixed or thrown away. The more broken pieces the less useful the vase becomes.  We are empty vases that are filled with the spirit of God. The […]

7 Nights with Nerium

Last week I did a 7-night trial of Nerium Age-Defying Night Cream.  In the spirit of full disclosure, I do not believe you can “defy” aging simply because we cannot stop time. So I have never liked the term “age defying” but the beauty industry loves it and perhaps I am being too literal. The question […]

Movie Review: Risen with Joseph Fiennes

  Perhaps one of my favorite things about being a Christian Lifestyle writer is going to the movies. Granted, I go see all types of movies and they do not need to be about the Bible. My role as a lifestyle writer is to relate the moves in the theaters to the way we live […]

Shining Through Your Cracks

We all come into the world in a one beautiful, innocent, cuddly piece. And then life starts to chip away at us, experience by experience, relationship by relationship, self- loathing thought by thought. These things start to shape who we are and we get further and further from who God created us to be.

Three Tips for Sharing Your Story

“MINE! MINE! MINE!” As children, one of the first things we learn to do for others is share.  Everyone has seen two angry toddlers playing tug-a-war with a favorite toy and screaming the word “MINE!” at the tops of their lungs. It is at that precise moment a mature adult comes in and orders the […]
