My Distress Due to Lack of Unity and Reconciliation

God has gifted me richly with mentors who have contributed greatly to my becoming who I am today! I hold them as treasures and in high regard. [Names have been changed] Ben and James who significantly helped get a foundation built within me as I was grappling with the impact of my early childhood and…

Disorganized Debbie

In the past three posts I have looked at 3 different attachment patterns. We began looking at the Secure Attachment, the type of secure bond all of us desire. It is the type of relational ‘environment’ that others can heal, grow and thrive in. The focus then shifted to the survival instincts and patterns that…

Distracted David

In our last interaction, we focused on the life of “Dismissive Danny”, and the tragic struggle that comes from living a life with minimal awareness of what happens in our lives matters, leaving us to follow rules above the value of relationships.

Rain came again, and so did the puddle.  Hmmm…  A problem with the flashings between the sunroom…

Implications I Am Pondering

How does the healing and growth I experience on this side of the transition door impact what happens on the other side?  Jesus told us to lay up treasures in heaven, letting us know that what we do here impacts the quality of our eternal destiny. God is eternal and will exist forever.  I entered…

Attachment Soil

In some of my trainings, I ask: What makes the difference in why some people are able to ‘hear’ and receive logically helpful information and others are not? Why at times do people have all the data needed to make wise choices and still not be able to follow through?   As I was continuing…
