How Do I Forgive Myself?

I'm sure I can speak for more than just myself when I say that it is often more difficult to forgive myself than to forgive others.  I have specifically felt immense guilt over certain relationships that it has taken years for me to even try to forgive myself.  Even when I thought I had forgiven myself, I expected punishment from God.  I felt that anything that went wrong was a direct result of my sin.  Maybe you're one of those people who have a difficult time forgiving yourself or expect punishment.  Or maybe you know someone like that.  Share this…

FREE (Printable!) Gratitude Journal

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, I felt it appropriate to finally post my FREE Gratitude Journal Printable. In the past few weeks, I've really been thinking a lot about thankfulness, and it's not just because of Thanksgiving coming up (well, maybe a little bit...). What really brought it to the forefront of my mind was the fact that, last week, the topic was brought to my attention on a few occasions (just in one day!).  Each day I read a few different devotions.  I know it sounds crazy, but sometimes I feel like that's the only way anything sinks in during…

To Be Honest

To be's past my bedtime.  I'm tired.  But I am here at my in-laws watching Penn State v. Ohio State (well...I'm not really watching, but who's keeping track?) To be honest...I'm typing this entire post on my phone...eek. Right now I'm part of the latest Bloom book study on Let's All Be Brave by Annie Downs.  And while reading through I've come up with a list of sorts.  A list of things I need to evaluate.  I'm going to share my list with you today and later answer my questions for you. So here's the list.  I hope you…

Sometimes You Just Need a Day Off

For those working Momma's out there...sometimes...(and I hope you realize it) you just need a day off. If I share anything in common with any of the other working moms out there in the world, I could probably bet that many of you hate taking a day off. For some of you, it just means there's that much to catch up on when you get back to work. For others, it might mean that you're short on pay for a day. I have been both of those. The latter is a real issue whether you're a working mother or not;…

Taking Care of Friendship

Today, as I attempted to catch up on the backlog of emails in my inbox, I perused through some of my favorite blogs.  As I was doing so, I happened across a few articles about friendship, the importance of developing friendships, and the like.  It got me thinking.  I don't like to jump on the bandwagon, but when something speaks to me, I feel I need to write it.  (And by the way, you can check out what I read at incourage at The Art of Simple.) On the radio the other day, I heard one person ask another what…
