Spiritual Manipulation PT4: Getting BACK UP

This road is pretty new to me of healing from spiritual manipulation. Its a journey with bumps, curves and steep hills. Being manipulated builds a wall to strive to never be hurt again. But this mentality locks us out of the good life God has in store for us. It places us in a waiting…

October Monthly Devotional: Make It Personal

Three can be a crowd, right? Especially when you’re longing to spend time with a specific person one on one. Sometimes I wonder if God just wants to spend one on one time with us and we create 3rd wheels.

” I’ll never allow anyone to hurt me ever again” have you ever said this before? Perhaps you didn’t realize this statement flipped the off switch of your emotions. To say you will never let anyone hurt means you must not feel.  We have no control over people hurting us. The control we have is…

Addressing Inner Wounds

The Season Before The Next Season…

I don’t know about you but I love going to IKEA. I can spend the whole day there and not get bored. Browsing through showrooms getting lost in all the design layouts and ideas is my happy place.  There is one thing about IKEA I don’t favor. The part when I get home, open the…
