Self-esteem: The Conductor of Emotions

Self-esteem is a very important aspect of everyone’s life. It is such a vital part of a person existence, yet at the same time too much or too little of it can be detrimental. Self-esteem is often used as a controlling tool. People prey on those who have low self-esteem because it is easy. Having […]

Change of Perspective on Mental Illness

The part about counseling that I look least forward to is the diagnosis portion.  No matter how many times I have challenged clients to view the diagnosis as a separate thing from their personality, it never fails – many of them view themselves as the diagnosis.  Sometimes the clients will use the diagnosis as a […]

Happy Wife….Happy Life!!!

For the past six months I have been cooking/eating healthier. Which means my family has been eating healthier as well. I originally made the change in our diet due to my husband’s cholesterol.

I don’t have (e)x-boyfriends — I have (wh)y-boyfriends.

I am a peculiar individual… with that being said up front, I can not stand the term, ex-boyfriend.  It correlates too much with the word exterminate (as I would with pests) or ex-nihilo (meaning literally nothing).  I would never wish to exterminate my former relationships or disregard what we had.  Instead, I prefer to call […]

A Mother’s Love

God has already described a mother’s love for her children and family better than I ever could. “She looks well to how things go in her household, and the bread of idleness (gossip, discontent, and self-pity) she will not eat.”     Proverbs 31:27 (Amplified Bible) She gets up while it is still night; she provides food […]

Money Talk

Even though communication, or lack of, is one of the biggest culprits for divorce; finances/money have to be in the top 105. When someone has been taking care of themselves and budgeting for themselves for a period of time, it sometimes can be difficult when one becomes two and that has to be one. You […]
