If you’ve been shopping for light bulbs lately, you’ve probably noticed a change underway. There are all these new kinds now. So it turns out that the way we talk about bulbs needs to change. It used to be that we referred to the amount of energy used. We had 40 watt bulbs, 100 watt bulbs, and so on. Now, there are bulbs that produce the same amount of light but with much less energy. So, a conversation about the wattage doesn’t necessarily tell us how much light we’ll get.
In a similar way, I’m finding that the nature of all my conversations matters – not just when discussing how to light up a room, but also while trying to light up all aspects of my life.Continue Reading

But a few minutes later another groan issued from the back seat. My wife turned to check and found our youngest son bent over and complaining of stomach pain.Continue Reading

These plans make us feel like we’re propelling ourselves forward in a balanced manner – keeping peace with our family members and showing attention to everything that seems important in our lives.Continue Reading

This Lives Lived shows clearly the progressive stages of understanding and healing! Meet Cathy Ann. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the age of 15, which was treated medically and it went into remission. Then 18 years later, she was diagnosed with cancer again and was healed through a spiritual means. Years later she received another diagnosis of cancer.

Recently, when I was praying about how to address someone’s incorrect statement about Christian Science, I realized that I should meet directly with the person involved. I was concerned though that I wouldn’t have the exact healing thoughts and ideas at hand when I needed them most and prayed specifically for inspiration for several days.
These unexpected feelings of anxiety reminded me of similar feelings many years earlier when I was on my high school track team.Continue Reading
