Clarksville, TN – My friend called me for parenting advice the other day. I was in shock. She said, “I had to call you; you’re the only one who’d understand.” Ooh, I thought, this should be good. She continues, “Charlie (not his real name) got in trouble for fighting today and I don’t know if I should punish him.”
She goes on to describe her dilemma. She wants to teach him right from wrong. She wants him to be a good person. She also doesn’t want to punish him unfairly if he was the one being bullied (which her son claims.) She wants to be a good mom. She is a good mom. But good parenting isn’t always clear-cut. «Read the rest of this article»
If you are like many people, you desire a calm that constantly eludes you and a happiness that only seems fit for other people.
Whether you have been a Christian for years, or if you are wrestling through your faith, you probably could learn from these 7 tips. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – The chitter chatter about our gray hair, our short hair, our too thin of hair…it’s just the tip of the iceberg. Women can talk about matters of vanity “till the cows come home.” For Pete’s sake, where are those cows already?
Lulls in conversation drift from stuff that matters (God, family, career, community) to things that clearly don’t matter as much (hair, weight, aging, clothes). I am not saying that those conversations are inherently bad; I am saying that it is “small talk” with big consequences. I believe that our conversations drive our vanity and ultimately our insecurities as women. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – My husband opened his business a little over 5 years ago. This weekend, we officially celebrate with an anniversary event complete with food, giveaways, and of course a ride. We are a motorcycle business ya’ know!
I have some thank you’s I would like to share if you don’t mind. I might cry, but you don’t have to.
“Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.” (Matthew 18:21-22)

Clarksville, TN – Is your compass broken? Lost? Never owned one?
We all feel lost sometimes. It’s a freaky feeling. You feel frustrated, confused, even panic stricken. You pull over, palms sweating, try to find your bearings, double check your directions, reset your navigation.
But what do you do if you don’t have directions, navigation, or a compass? You might know where to go, but you won’t know how to get there. You might stop for directions, or call someone to ask for their advice, but how do you know if you can trust them? How long do you wander before you turn around and go back? «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – I am not a doctor, nor am I a professional counselor. I am not an expert on depression. My credentials? I love someone that suffers from depression.
This is National Suicide Prevention Week and, “over 90% of people who die by suicide have clinical depression or another diagnosable mental disorder.”*
Anytime there is a designated time for awareness about a disease, cause or issue, we might ask ourselves, “What can I do about it?”
But it is never, ever easy. The aftermath of divorce is even more grueling at times. There are consequences to divorce, and there are mental traps we find ourselves in.
Here are some lies that divorced women should stop believing. «Read the rest of this article»
Intention matters. Studies have shown that plants that are talked to lovingly and soothingly are proven to grow better, even when all other conditions (water, food, sunlight) are equal.
If you are doing the right things, why does your intention or motive for doing it matter? And how often do we really examine our own intentions for doing what we normally do? «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – We all have something about us that seems odd to those around us, and even more odd to ourselves. I was always envious of girls who did girly things and actually enjoyed them. Many times, I have thought it would be easier to be like other women. Sometimes, I still do, especially when I suspect that I am giving them my crazy-eye-what-in-the-world-look. It’s just easier to fit in.
I’ve known I was weird since I was about 5 or 6. I wasn’t a girl’s girl. I liked the Dukes of Hazard cars better than Barbies (her stupid shoes wouldn’t stay on). I was good at math. I didn’t have crushes on random actors or singers. I couldn’t sing along to NKOTB or Guns and Roses (I preferred John Cougar Mellancamp and Billy Ocean). I never squealed or clapped, or hopped on my tippy toes when I saw my friend that I just saw last week (or last period). I don’t like bunko, or girly parties, or hugging people I just met. My sense of humor is odd, sometimes questionable, and sometimes delirious. «Read the rest of this article»
