Have you ever experienced a day in which you weren’t somewhat bored? Until recently, boredom wasn’t really challenged but rather just accepted as part of one’s day. Most people accept some boredom as long as it’s offset with experiences of joy and excitement – which is how the long days of summer usually turn out!Continue Reading

Many feel that there is nothing more important to our quality of life than health. Without sufficient health, living a productive life is difficult. Yet, few options are left beyond treatments approved by medical organizations and/or insurance plans when it comes to caring for health.Continue Reading

When my wife was a teenager, she became very concerned with her weight. But her mother told her not to worry. Why? Because she knew her daughter was too astute to let her weight get out of control. What that meant to my wife was that her mom was reminding her that she had a deeper understanding of her identity as being more than just physical.

She could demonstrate what the Bible calls “dominion” over her circumstances.Continue Reading

Could a spiritual focus be of benefit to young children? My colleague Keith Wommack shares his observations that I found worthy of sharing with my readers. Here is what Keith wrote:
“I just felt like something was pressuring me to do it,” John LaDue told his mother after his arrest in 2014.
LaDue had hatched a well thought-out plan, according to CNN. His goal was to carry out the worst school massacre in US history.
Mercifully for his intended victims, the 11th grader’s plot was foiled before it could be put into action.
And it was fortunate for LaDue, too. The plot’s failure meant his sole sentence was for possessing an explosive device, the only offense he could be charged with. He has now completed his jail sentence and has agreed to stay on probation and receive treatment for a fixation on violence.
I think it’s interesting when another article about age perceptions pops up. Age is something that we all experience, from being too young to being too old for just about anything a person experiences in life. And this new article adds to the conversation. But this is the first time that I’ve really heard about defeating age discrimination (both external and internal) through age pride – embracing the qualities of age – instead of embracing the more spiritual idea that we can look beyond age.Continue Reading
