The Power of Prayer Partnership

As we pursue our own goals and dreams, the journey can often feel lonely and overwhelming. If I’m doing God’s work, shouldn’t it always be easy and fun? Of course, that’s what I want, but I realize that is naïve. Sometimes it is easy and fun, and often it is very challenging. Why? Because God is always growing me into the women who can steward the dreams He has placed in my heart. That means I am constantly changing, and change is hard.

I know I’m not alone. If you are walking with God, He is changing you. I have always been independent, preferring to do things alone. I’ve had to learn the hard way that God never wants us to live life alone or to accomplish our goals and dreams alone. It’s not in His character.

The Power of Beliefs

Beliefs are so powerful that they literally shape the course of our lives. Yet, we rarely pay them much heed. This month’s blog post will give you a deeper understanding of the role beliefs play in your life and why it is so important to bring unconscious beliefs into the light of day if you want to live a better life.

We will explore how beliefs are formed, how they impact everything we do, and what we can do to change limiting beliefs that keep us from living to our fullest potential.

What Does it Mean to Co-Create With God?

I love the elegance of the Tango, the precision of the movements, the way the lead seems to effortlessly guide the follow into stunningly complex, striking moves that absolutely captivate the audience. She rarely diverts her eyes from his, as if she instinctively knows that her every move depends on that connection. It allows her to flourish, to joyfully express her creativity and talent in ways she could never achieve on her own. He is her home base. Without his lead, she does not move. With it, she dances in ways she never thought possible.

Relationship with Self

 

In the hustle and bustle of life, many Christian women find themselves yearning for a deeper connection with themselves and with God. Are you one of these women? The journey of personal and spiritual growth and development can be both invigorating and challenging, especially when we feel stuck in the routines of daily life and when we try to change because we just want more out of life.

Gratitude Schmatitude

An attitude of gratitude is one of those ideas that was elusive for a good part of my life. I would metaphorically roll my eyes when I heard people talk about making gratitude lists and felt agitated when a workshop leader asked us to share things we were grateful for. I was always so focused on where I was going that I had little appreciation for the present. Thinking of something I was grateful for always felt so contrived. Pretty sad, huh?

Reverse Engineering Can Change Your Life

“We all want the results of change, but few of us want to go through the process of change.” Every client of mine has inevitably heard me say those words. The truth is, change is hard. Our habitual thoughts and behaviors are the result of many influences, and they reflect deeply held beliefs about ourselves, about others, and about life. Over time I have developed and/or used a number of tools to help ease the pain of change, and reverse engineering is one of them.

Perfectly Imperfect

Perfectionist, who, me? It’s not one of those flags I like to fly, but there it is. I hadn’t thought about writing my first blog post on perfectionism, but God had a different idea. He’s been bringing perfectionism to my attention in a big way over the past several weeks. During a recent morning prayer time, when the subject of perfectionism came up…again… I heard the Lord say, “I’ve just about written your first blog post for you, haven’t I?” . . .Great.
