Understanding Our Value & Worth (The Foundation for Building Healthy Relationships)

In this two-part podcast, I talk about why so many of our relationships are filled with turmoil and we keep making the same mistakes over and over. Why so many of us feel like victims instead of victors….a wound that I believe exists in the understanding our worth as human beings that many of us…

The Power to Heal the World….. in this one Virtue!

All my empty nesting life, which has been about 10 or so years, I have suffered with a deep longing. It is a longing so intense, it is almost impossible to suppress and much to my determination to balance it, "pow!" there it is, in all it's desperate glory! I say "suffer" because the longing…

One of the Most Important Keys for Lasting Relationships

Relationships are hard work. Ask anyone who's in one or trying to maintain one. They require everything we've got and at times, even what we don't have. And I don't know about you, but I'm not into "maintaining" but, instead, "growing" my relationships.

Forgiveness; It’s Not Cheap, but Why We Can’t Afford NOT to Give it Away!
