Give Discouragement the BOOT

Is discouragement keeping us from moving forward? I’ve been on that coaster ride. Excitement brews as we climb upwards; we receive good news, gain acceptance, taste a victory. Joy bursts forth, and the bounce in our step feels like we’ve downed five cups of coffee. But what happens at the top? You can’t sit there… Read More Give Discouragement the BOOT

Keeping Our Cool in the Heat of Emotion

Feeling frustrated lately? I can relate. Heading out to meet a friend for lunch, I get into the car, turn the key, and nothing. Not even a click.

Can This Be Spring?

Does this look like spring to you? Emerald leaves swishing to and fro, dancing on soft breezes against a clear blue backdrop. Buzzing bees on bright yellow blooms, soaking in sunlit warmth.
