When God Comes Between Us

Over the course of our 33 years of marriage, my husband often voiced how much God came between us.

Your Roots Make A Difference

. Today’s question comes from the site of Wiselike by an anonymous member.

Q: “What are the roots of your findings (about relationships)? Is it from personal experience? Or patterns that you’ve seen?” Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,

I’d like to give you the short version, but I think your question deserves the complete story. I’ve never told my story quite like this before,  but I’ll share it today in full humility because someone needs to hear it.

In today’s video, I’ll share what will keep you together so you can focus on those instead.

America Is Filled With Kryptonite. Is It Too Late To Change The Trajectory?

There is a form of Kryptonite running rampant in our country. It’s called indifference and we’ve given it lots of territory. This is a life-sucking hope-draining trajectory for our entire nation unless we do something about it.

When Brandon Stanton, Humans Of New York Author and Photographer, wrote an open letter to Donald Trump, he shared his concern of just how indifferent Trump has become, and how it will affect America if he is elected president. After reading it, I began a speaking campaign to change the trajectory of our country.
