This morning as my husband was praying, he asked God for a Red Sea moment. It got me to thinking about what that must’ve been like for Moses and his troops.

Their faith in God had to be greater than their fear of what was behind them. They could actually see their enemi...

I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I find that people are so much more sensitive these days than they used to be. If there’s a way to be offended by something, people will find it.

There was a time when I was extremely sensitive and anything anybody said to me would hurt...

For those of us who are very sensitive, criticism can be a hurtful thing. We tend to internalize every negative comment and wonder why people are so hard to please. We end up thinking that there’s something very wrong with us, which means that we judge everyone else to...

We hold onto hurts and we nurse them. We take such good care of them that they become healthier than we are. Pretty soon they take on a life of their own and go out and create more painful memories. In the recesses of our minds are file cabinets alphabetically ordered...

There is so much bickering in the world today. I realize that we are a multi-cultural nation, but it’s not even a matter of not speaking the same language. It’s more like not even being on the same page.

Everybody is so caught up in seeing things their own way that we’v...
