Who or What is Defining You?

I think women often struggle with figuring out who they are. WHY they are. When we think of ourselves, we tend to see ourselves through the eyes of whomever happens to be surrounding us at the time. We’ve got all these roles to play. We wonder if we’re playing them well. If others believe we […]

So, How Do I Raise a “Normal” Person?

In the past two posts I’ve given you a few helpful steps in anyone’s quest to raise dysfunctional Wemmicks. It’s fairly easy. You’ve got several things working in your favor: your own sin, their sin, and the sin of everyone else around you. If you missed all the details, not to worry. I’ll make sure […]

But I Feel Guilty When I Say “No.”

Last week we introduced the idea of being stewards of our time and resources. The question is, how does that play out, practically speaking, in our day to day lives? When someone invites us to participate in yet another activity, how do we determine whether or not that activity is a good fit for us? […]

Annoyances Here, There, Everywhere!

There’s been a lot of chaos in my home lately. A lot of interruptions. A lot of loud voices. A lot of questions. A lot of (different) answers with a lot of subsequent arguing. There’s been a lot of dirty clothes on dirty floors. A lot of laundry. A lot of unmade beds and unclean […]

Breaking Through Fear and Shame

If you’ve been a Christian long enough you’ve heard about “fighting the good fight” and “the spiritual battle” and “the weapons of our warfare” – just a few cliche phrases that are popular among us Christian Wemmicks. The fact is, the Bible does use a lot of warfare imagery to describe the Christian life, probably […]

Some Things Can’t be Fixed

Sometimes we cry out to God in what seems to be a vacuum. We cry. Then silence. That almost always happens when we cry and walk away. It’s like a one sided conversation, but mainly because we didn’t stick around to hear a response. Sometimes we cry out to God and are blown away with […]

Beautiful Imperfection

So I guess this has morphed into a sort of Pendulum Post. It’s actually the second half of Are You a Good Little Christian. So if you haven’t read that, you may want to click over THERE first – and then come back when you’ve caught up. The pendulum we’re swinging on in these two […]

Are You a Good Little Christian?

In a recent reader survey, I asked the question, What is one thing you would change about Visionary Womanhood? One of the answers jumped out at me and got my mind and heart stirring. It brought up such a major issue in my personal life – so I want to talk about it a little […]

Lose a Drop, Gain an Ocean

I’ve loved Elisabeth Elliot since high school. I haven’t read all of her books, but I’ve read several over the years, and they always put much needed fat on skinny bones. Right now I’m in the middle of The Path of Loneliness: Finding Your Way through the Wilderness to God. Here is the full quote […]
