Rob Porter, the classic narcissist

Posted by on Feb 27, 2018 in Domestic Violence | 0 comments

Domestic violence is prevalent in today’s news. Recently, Rob Porter who resigned from the White House two weeks ago, had allegations of abuse come against him by two ex-wives. As it turns out, the first #MeToo story to actually trip up the White House needed to be as graphic and violent as the accusations against Rob Porter. It involved a Rhodes Scholar golden boy who had been married to two old-fashioned girls. This, and indeed the entire situation, provides the perfect mirror to reflect all the ways in which systems, fail women. (slate.com) Willoughby’s, one of his ex-wives, blog post...

Self-righteousness keeps us from compassion

Posted by on Feb 11, 2018 in Compassion, Following God | 0 comments

This past August it became very clear with the launch of my book that I would be moving in a different direction of healing. During the process of writing my book, I was able to remove the emotion and as a consequence didn’t shed a tear.

Gather

Posted by on Oct 24, 2017 in Compassion, Following God, Relationships | 0 comments

After going through a season of rejection and then realizing my need for connection, gather was the next word in the progression of healing. Gather can be defined as ‘bring together and take in from scattered places or sources.’ I also think of gather as getting people together for a movement, or a common interest. That’s how I categorize my friendships. Each person is from a different area of our life whether its from work, church, workout friends, hobbies or new neighbors. It’s the common connection with these people which can lead to gathering together. Several people in Christian circles...
