The 3 Relationships You Must Cultivate This Year

The 3 Relationships You Must Cultivate This Year

Last year I challenged myself to come out of my shell and start being more hospitable. That meant cultivating my relationships with people outside of my home, but before I ever got to that point I needed to make sure that the relationships closest to me were healthy.

One thing I love about me is my transparency. If things aren’t gong well in my relationships, you’ll know it. I can’t put on a genuine happy face when my relationships are in shambles. This character trait is good because it forces me to consistently work toward nurturing my relationships so they remain healthy.

10 Things Your Husband Needs to Hear From You

10 Things Your Husband Needs to Hear From You

I remember thinking it was weird the things God would ask me to do in my marriage. By ask, I’m referring to how he would lead me to Bible versus about forgiveness when my husband made me mad.

It’s no coincidence that I’d end up reading about grace instead of revenge when I’d felt my husband had done me wrong.

God seemed to always lead me to scripture that instructed me to do the very opposite of what I wanted.

Holding Grudges

Holding Grudges and How to Stop

For some of us it’s easy to hold on to things for far too long. When others have moved on, we can find ourselves stewing over hurt words said, failures, and offenses.

To become better and not bitter, we have to make a conscious effort to wipe the slate clean, with ourselves and with others.

Dragging the baggage of  yesterday into today keeps us locked up in yesterday’s mess.

In order for us to do new things in Christ each day, we must live in the day. We’ve lost way too much valuable time with people by holding on to old stuff.

How to Break the Habit of Yelling

How to Break the Habit of Yelling

For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, ‘Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea,’ and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith.                                                                                        Mark 11:23

There is no overnight strategy out there that will show you how to break the habit of yelling. It took me three years to break the hold the habit had on me. I consistently yelled when angry or frustrated even when my husband and I were dating. This went on up until shortly after my fourth child was in elementary. It was normal to me.

But it made me feel like scum when I’d see what it was doing to my family. I’d made up in my mind that didn’t want to be her anymore, that mom wife and mom who yelled. The one who was always out for control. I needed to know why I was so easily agitated.

God took me on a journey that changed my life. I share how I went from being an unhappy wife and mom to being so full of peace.
