MOTHER

This poem is about a woman trying to serve her family while the demons of the past haunt her. They spoke death and doubt to her. She mustered up the strength to raise a family in the midst of the mental onslaught with her Redeemer by her side. It may seem dark to some, but it’s a reminder that things are never what they … Read More MOTHER

I never learned to honor the woman that is me Rarely, if ever, did I see what it looked like

CASTAWAY

Behind the eyes of a castaway Lies the heart of a seafaring maid Born for the great wide open Shipwrecked in fear and shame Her heart dreams of sun dancing on water Like before, when she was sure and brave Now, buried in regret and sorrow That speaks down to her hope in this fray Tempted to give up the ‘morrow While she struggles … Read More CASTAWAY

THE LONELY

Turbulent Ocean Tossed about sea The sound of the heart Inside of me Seething and sighing Through night and Through tears The sigh is deafening The lonely is a prison sentence And I hold the pardon This is the only home I know Alone Unknown Bowing to a whim That’s not my own I can see me On the other side of decision Me … Read More THE LONELY

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 don’t possess and we’re looking for it in all … Read More Understanding Our Value & Worth (The Foundation for Building Healthy Relationships)

One of the Biggest Battles I Fight! (A Personal Disclosure)

One of the greatest battles I fight is getting my mind off myself and onto others. How about you? My days are consumed with my job, my bills, my family, my significance, my health, am I doing all I can do….and the list goes on and on. There is only one common denominator in all these thoughts. ME! YUCK! I hate it. I am … Read More One of the Biggest Battles I Fight! (A Personal Disclosure)

Self-rejection is a taboo subject because it contains so many implications. Yet, millions of us, the majority, women, engage in this practice daily. Some to very severe degrees to the point of eating disorders, domestic violence, drug additions, self-mutilation and self-abasement of the worst kinds. In this week’s podcast, we’ll discuss some of the origins of self-rejection and some ways you can begin to … Read More Fighting the Battle of Self-Rejection

All my empty nesting life, which has been about 10 or so years, I have suffered with a deep longing.
