My New Love Story

For me, it all started with a business meeting almost gone bad, that we both share different takes on: As I contemplated leaving in disgust, at the apparent disregard of my valuable time, Harold arrived fashionably late with seemingly not a care in the world. Harold on the other hand says ” I thought:  ‘My she [...]

My Authentic Life

Yep, it’s been a while. Nevertheless here’s an interesting and enlightening post.  I wrote this poem back on November 22, 2009 and really had no intentions of posting it here.

Make It a "Triple Hooray" Day!

Well, despite the way it appeared my day started off yesterday, (Up & At ‘em Down Single-Parenting Lane) I’m happy to report it turned out to be remarkable in several ways.

What I learned from my "Interrupted Life"

Over the last few days as those of you who’ve been reading my new blog have emailed me, I’ve noticed quite a bit.  Many email me with sincere thanks for just providing a blog like this. Then there are others, who are clearly still hurting, due to much church hurt that even the words “Truth [...]

The Enemy Is Assigned To "Steal, Kill or Destroy" Christian Marriages

When going through Divorce  as a Christian or the “possibilities of one” and realizing that the (3) MAIN things the enemy comes to do is “kill, steal and destroy”, you have to really look at your situation and sincerely seek God for direction. What I have learned is that everyone who “tries to counsel” you [...]

What's Wrong With Christians And Divorce?

You know what? It’s a FACT, statistics show Christians divorce just as more than anybody else. Yep, Christians divorce rates beat out other religions and non believers. Yet, unfortunately in the church, the subject of divorce still seems to be taboo. Now days it only seems to come up when it can’t be avoided, due [...]
