    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.

    The Itty Bitty Flesh Eating Sin

     

    Women behind mask.

    Clarksville, TN – When I started blogging about my life and “spiritual journey” a few years ago, writing came easily for me. I had just come through a huge awakening and period of major change in my life. I had come a long way in my attitudes and behavior in a short period of time, and I needed an outlet to share my recovery and new-found happiness.

    As the years have gone on, I have noticed 2 things: the first is that my writing, and the topics of my blogs have matured quite a bit. The second thing I have noticed is that I write less often and struggle to refine my thoughts more. «Read the rest of this article»

     

    Crime Scenes Get Teens Excited About Learning

     

    Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Getting kids to school simply requires a bus and a semi-awake child. Getting kids to actually look forward to learning is a much bigger challenge.

    How many times has your child asked you why they need to learn Algebra or Chemistry? How many times have you tried to relate it to something interesting but came up short? Tying school learning objectives to the interests of teens is an age-old challenge, but always worth the effort.

    2000 “Friends” But Feeling Alone?

     

    Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – You probably don’t know this about me but I lived in low-income housing of Cleveland, Ohio when I was a small child.

    I didn’t feel poor. I don’t remember anyone complaining about not having enough. I do remember lots of bologna, egg noodles and liver. Ketchup was our only condiment. I also remember never throwing away antibiotics until every last drop was gone even though the instructions clearly stated that you should finish and discard.

    But mostly, I remember my neighbors. They were like family. «Read the rest of this article»
