    Busy, Alone and Drained: One “Power Couple’s” Tale of Quitting Everything


    Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – A few years ago, I was working at a table in the church lobby. A pastor’s wife (whose husband no longer worked in the Clarksville area) told me sheepishly that they weren’t doing much in the way of volunteerism anymore.

    I said sincerely and empathetically, “Well sometimes your family has to be your ministry.” I meant it – for her of course. My ministry was the WORLD. Or at least it seemed.

    In our busy lives, we need to make time for ourselve, our spouse and our family.

    Kris Wolf: How to Recover from Rejection


    Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Self-esteem reminds me of a water balloon dipped in tanning oil. We want to have a handle on it, but our grasp is momentary at best.

    And the ego. Well the ego is a savage. A hungry carnivore leaving a trail of messy carnage, if left to its own devices.

    I am going to speak to the female ego and self-esteem here, but fellas, you can probably relate too. Yet there is something special about how women feed their ego, and thus experience a positive self-esteem.

    I have yet to meet a man Who can change the will of GOD. «Read the rest of this article»


    Kris Wolfe: She Was Just a Receptionist


    Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Recently, my husband and I attended a conference for motorcycle dealers from all over the country. It was a 2-day event, held in a hotel with meals and speaking/training carefully coordinated.

    I met the lady who did all of the planning on the way into the opening dinner and then happened to be seated next to her. Everyone was introducing themselves and their lofty titles with the company, so I asked her, “What is your official title?” She said, “Oh I’m just a receptionist. I’m no one important.”


    Just a receptionist? But being important is not the same as looking important. And being important has a lot more to do with who we are than who we appear to be.

    Kris Wolfe: The Missing Ingredient in Church (ISO “Hazel”)


    Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – I started attending church in the 80’s. I was 12, and very intimidated by the church scene. All the kids knew stuff. They knew about people from the Bible. They had verses memorized. They had always been in church.

    I felt like a deviant weirdo misfit on a weekly basis. I didn’t hate church, but I can’t say that I liked it.

    Well except on potluck days. Then I loved church.

    It wasn’t just the creamy green bean casserole with fried crunchy onions on top. It wasn’t the potluck itself. What I really liked was not something you’d think a 12 year old would even care about.

    Please Don’t Think You Know Me


    Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Please don’t think you “know” me.

    Please don’t take a look at me, or even my public self on social media and think you got me all figured out.

    Just because I am a woman, does not mean I cannot take charge.

    Just because I am little, doesn’t mean I won’t put up a fight.

    Just because I am a Christian, doesn’t mean I am judging you. «Read the rest of this article»


    Dumb Things I Do to Ruin My Own Day


    Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Sometimes it feels like the world is mowing me down.

    But other times I feel like I have popped my own balloon.

    Life is rarely as bad as it seems but sometimes I catch myself focusing on negative emotions, what others think or what is going wrong rather than what is going right. «Read the rest of this article»


    Kris Wolfe: Are Step-families the Step-children of the Church?


    Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – I never planned on having a step-family. But I do. And boy do I love it. But it isn’t always easy.

    In fact, I knew that it would not be easy long before I ever married the first time at the age of 21, because growing up I had been a stepchild. My step-dad adopted me, and he is a great dad, but it still made for the same dynamics of a blended family. No matter the legal status of your family, when families form later in the game, there is much to learn and overcome!

    I met my bachelor child-free husband in 2006. I had been divorced for a year; my boys were 3 and 6 years old. In 2010, we married, officially creating a blended family. My oldest read 1 Corinthians and our youngest prayed for us at our ceremony. It seemed quite unique among our friends, but these days, about a third of all marriages create a blended family.

    Feeling Small in the World Today?


    Kris Wolfe“When I consider your heavens,
    the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place,
    what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them?

    You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor.
    You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
    you put everything under their feet:”

    ~Psalm 8:3-6

    Bible Reading Tips for Adult “Beginners”


    Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – I was late to the party. I was in my 30s before I started reading the Bible. I mean, I had touched them here and there, even opened them once or twice, and had somehow memorized the 23rd Psalm from hearing people speak it at funerals or in movies. So basically, I knew nothing.

    I have been going to church weekly for about 7 years. And about three years ago, I got the calling to go to grad school to learn how to counsel people biblically. I have always been an adviser and helper. But I wanted to know how to help people in a more meaningful, less self-serving (for me and for them) way.
