Today I want to begin a conversation about past experiences that have wounded us.  Specifically, I am focusing on experiences associated with spiritual or church organizations. We usually belong to a religion or congregation for some great reasons.  We’re looking for...

Emotional Neglect

I just finished one of the best books I’ve ever read: Running on Empty: Overcome Your Childhood Emotional Neglect by Jonice Webb, PhD with Christine Musello, PsyD. (2014, Morgan James Publishing, NY).  Dr. Webb has opened my eyes to a whole, new way of looking at...

Who Are Your Kindred Spirits?

I have very few friends.  And that’s the way it’s supposed to be for me.  The six or so true relationships I enjoy are not just friends; they are kindred spirits.  We give each other the emotional and spiritual support we need to stay in balance and show up in the...

Deadly Messages and Your Powerful Life

In the film “The Sixth Sense” the child actor Cole Sear said, “I see dead people.” Even if you never saw the film you likely recall this signature line. Well, you may not see dead people, but I guarantee you do hear deadly messages…all the...

The Cost of a Powerful Life

What is a “powerful life?”  What images come to mind? Adoring crowds? A huge bank account?  High position in government or industry? Or perhaps a life lived in service to others. Powerful implies influence, success, reaching to the heights and enjoying a fulfilled...

Welcoming Crisis

Big mistake many leaders make (whether a parent, CEO, or politician): viewing crisis as a bad thing.  Crisis is the life-blood of change.  Crisis focuses on the future, ultimately leading to the resolution of conflicts and complaints. Without the proper understanding...
